3 stars Sometimes I have a difficult time with a band simply because I don't feel any inspiration at all. You know what I mean: That band that has all the skill in the world, but for some reason they never choose to explore. The new release from Silent Voices, "Reveal the Change", is disappointing to me on this level, I think.

Don't get me wrong. This band has talent. However, they never offer anything out of the standard Dream Theater-esque prog metal. Now, I must quickly point out that this band doesn't showboat. They aren't fighting each other for solo time or anything. However, we get the standard caterwauling vocalist, the complex guitar work, the atmospheric keys that never do much, and the drumming that feels, well, just there. The bass is mostly missing in action, as is usually the case with these bands. You can hear it slightly better than other bands, and it does seem to have character. However, the mix just eliminates it for the most part. That's a real shame.

As I said, this band doesn't showboat all that much. That, at least, is a good thing in my book. The band does exhibit feelings of unity and oneness. They play together, for the most part, and they do have compositional skills that I feel outweigh many bands. They change their tone, too, such as the interesting change from standard prog metal in "The Fear of Emptiness" to a darker, lower feeling in "No Turning Back". The changes are subtle, however, so don't expect wild swings in style. This is standard prog metal, after all.

There really isn't much to say, honestly. If you've heard one DT clone, you've heard them all. Remember, I hate using that term, but it's pretty inescapable with this band, even though they've been around since the mid-90's. Their sound is a bit tired and old, but still enjoyable, and I must say that I enjoyed this album more than Dream Theater's latest. Anyways, this album won't be any kind of epiphany to you, and it won't surprise you. However, if you enjoy this type of music, you'll love it.

4 stars Silent Voices was founded in 1995 by guitarist Timo Kauppinen, bassist Pasi Kauppinen, drummer Jukka-Pekka Koivisto and keyboardist Henrik Klingenberg. At the time their main influences were Dream Theater and Rush. A couple of years later the line-up was completed when Michael Henneken joined in on vocals. They may have had a break for a little while (six years since the last album) but they are now back with their fourth full-length release. Henrik and Pasi are also members of Sonata Arctica, and instead of replacing Michael (who left after the last album) they have instead brought in some guests to help them out, so vocals on this album are provided by Mats Lev'n (Therion, Yngwie Malmsteen), Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica), Mike Vescera )Loudness, Yngwie Malmsteen, Obsession) and Mike DiMeo (Masterplan, Riot). To ensure that they got the sound right, it was mastered by Ted Jensen (Bon Jovi, Dream Theater, Megadeth).

The results is something that is progressive metal through and through, and will appeal to fans of both that genre and of those who want their metal to be melodic and hard hitting and may not normally think of prog as being their thing. The musical quartet behind this album have been playing together for years and it shows, as they trade runs and are tighter than a Mayan wall. The drum fills are wonderful, with real inventiveness that add to the overall sound without detracting from it, while Timo can surely shred with the best of them. Henrik has a very fluid style, moving between different sounds to get the best from each section of a song while Pasi can also take the lead when he wants to, but is often to be found at the back providing wonderful counterpoint to the main metallic proceedings.

Needless to say, with singers of this standard the overall result is nothing short of superb, and here we have a prog metal album that is probably more of the latter than the former, but that isn't necessarily a bad thing and here we have something that is hard hitting and fun throughout. If you haven't come across this band before, and it has been a while since their last album to be fair, then you owe it to yours ears to get this now.

Review by Mellotron Storm

4 stars 4.5 stars. I feel like i've had some hits and misses of late when it comes to Metal so it is with great pleasure to review SILENT VOICES most recent release from 2006. Man this is just as good as their previous one "Infernal" in my opinion. These Finns just seem to push all the right buttons for me.The vocals are incredible, i'm a huge fan of them. And while these guys do have a Power-Metal flavour at times I feel there's even less of that here when compared to "Infernal". Man this has some heavy duty soundscapes but it's always melodic.

"World's End" gets things started with a blast while the synths roll in.Vocals before a minute. Piano before 4 minutes then it kicks in again. Synths and drums lead before 6 minutes then the guitar adds some fire.Vocals are back 8 1/2 minutes in.

"Distorted" is a top three. A heavy assault to start. It settles back some when the vocals arrive and I like the guitar here. A guitar solo before 3 minutes and the vocals sound amazing when they return. Another guitar solo before 5 1/2 minutes.

"Once Lost Life" has a heavy intro and yes we seem to have a theme here.Vocals join in then it settles back with vocal melodies after 3 1/2 minutes. A tasteful guitar solo follows.

"Blood Of Eden" is another top three for me. It kicks in hard quickly. So good ! Reserved vocals join in then they turn more aggressive 1 1/2 minutes in. Killer stuff right here. A calm after 4 minutes then we get some orchestral sounds before atmosphere and spoken words take over.It kicks back in at 6 1/2 minutes with vocals.

"Corridors" will take the other top three place although it's hard to pick at this point. It hits the ground running as synths roll in then vocals. A Power-Metal flavour here with the rhythm section. A ripping guitar solo after 3 minutes.

"Hollowed" is different,more laid back but it's a winner as well. Atmosphere to start as we get some spoken words.Gentle guitar and reserved vocals follow. More spoken words before 5 minutes followed again by reserved vocals. A cool tune.

"The Realm Of Flames" is heavy duty with synths.Guitar then vocals join in. Great sounding track ! The guitar lights it up after 4 1/2 minutes.

"Into The Flow" ends it with a dark vibe and drums before the riffs and synths join in. It picks up before a minute then the vocals arrive. Check out the keyboards after 4 minutes.Vocal melodies and drums lead after 6 minutes then the guitar kicks back in as it builds.

I highly recommend this and the previous one to all Prog-Metal out there.

4 stars 4.5 stars. I really want to give this 5 stars and I may down the road. I would describe it as Prog- Metal with a Power-Metal flavour.This Finnish band is "lights out" when it comes to playing and I really like the vocals too. Oh and the synths are in the background the way I like them.

"End Of Days" has an amazing intro. I was sold on this band after the first 20 seconds. It's heavy and intricate. Vocals a minute in. Cool sound 2 1/2 minutes in of vocals, drums and bass only. Then it kicks back in with guitar. Nice guitar solo before 4 1/2 minutes as well. "On The Wings Of Rage" is intense and heavy. Killer vocals too. Drums dominate 2 minutes in followed by background synths.Those drums are back 3 1/2 minutes in followed by a guitar solo. "Infernal Mind" is a heavy assault as the vocals join in.The guitar plays over top before 2 1/2 minutes. "Fate Divided" opens with dark keys. It's building. The heaviness comes in like a runaway train. Vocals before 1 1/2 minutes. It does settles some after 3 minutes. Great sound after 5 1/2 minutes that makes me think of RIVERSIDE for some reason. The heaviness is back a minute later.

"New World Order" opens with some nice guitar. Heaviness and vocals follow. Drums really dominate here. Check out the guitar before 3 minutes. "Disease: Man" has such a good drum intro as vocals and grinding guitar follow.The vocals sound incredible. "Prelude: The Spirit Of Avalon" opens with piano melodies. The vocals before a minute are reserved. A moving intro. "Avalon" is the 10 1/2 minute closer. Here we go ! Such a good contrast with the previous mellow track. This is heavy and hard with vocals and background synths. Love when it settles some and the guitar comes to the fore. Contrasts continue. It settles with piano around 4 1/2 minutes. Tasteful guitar follows. It kicks back in after 6 1/2 minutes. Some huge bass too. It settles before we get some more guitar 8 1/2 minutes in.

What an album !! A must for Metal fans.
