Siljan biography
The band was founded in October 2015 n Marseilles, France. If the band cited bands like OPETH, PAIN OF SALVATION and SYSTEM OF DOWN as influences, it's the use of cello and the way they use many tempo changes that makes their music unique. They have created videos for all their songs from their second album "Collapsology" which they use in their live shows to give a full audiovisual experience to the audience. This album's main theme deals with the disappearance of modern society through the journey of man's grieving. The music can be epic, cinematic with metal, post-rock and math-rock touches.

— First review of this album —
3 stars I immediately was stuck to this Marseilles based band when listening to the album for the first time. Yeah, it contains a bunch of remarkable compositions. Easy to grasp, though without sounding arbitrarily exchangeable with other bands at a first glance. And this not solely due to the fact that they have Johanna Renaud with her cello as a significant addition to the fold. Thematically, according to the album title, they are picking up collapsology, which is said to be a new science, while dealing with the collapse of the industrial civilization and its sequels. Not an optimistic forecast possibly. Nevertheless they are delivering enchanting melody lines throughout, spiked with dramatic heavy guitar riff dominated outbursts again and again.

Another fact that really strikes, one would not miss keyboards, not really. Versatile guitarist Guillaume Arnaud seems to be the driving force. He also serves the vocals, not the strongest share here, but it's quite okay anyhow. As noted before, the compositions are convincing, the band's performance is enjoyable all the way through. And yes, the cello adds nice colours to the show. If at all, I would like to highlight the closing instrumental track Changes, a wonderful piece of progressive rock, compact, melancholic and powerful in the same manner. 3.5 stars on the rating scale, with upward tendency.

Thanks to rdtprog for the artist addition.
