Sound of Silence biography
The idea of SOUND OF SILENCE was born in June 1989 by Manolis GAVALAS (keyboards), Akis GAVALAS (drums) and Nick KOKOTSIS (guitars). Then two brothers, Kostas and Chris THEODORAKOPOULOS (guitars and bass respectively) joined the band and started working the first SOUND OF SILENCE songs. In September 1989, George KANDRIS (vocals) filled up the last position and immediately the band started working on the songs for the first demo ''The Silence of Sound'' which was released in winter 1990. After its release, Chris THEODORAKOPOULOS left the band and was replaced by Dimitris TASIAS.

Some live performances followed and after three years of continuous work the band released the second demo ''Unanswered Questions'' with Thodoris MATHIOULAKIS on bass guitar, replacing TASIAS. The demo sold over 2000 copies and radio stations, fanzines and magazines met the music of SOUND OF SILENCE. After the demo release the band played along with already-known Greek bands; MATHIOULAKIS left the band and Stathis LONTOS took his place. The band recorded the track 'Wasting Soul' for a compilation after invitation from Metal Hammer magazine (GR) and in 1994, the band performed live with Bruce DICKINSON; both were invited to a party given by Metal Hammer magazine. 'Laughing in the Hiding Bush' was the song performed by Bruce and SOUND OF SILENCE sharing the same stage.

After a number of live performances the band faced many line-up changes. Nick KOKOTSIS, Kostas THEODORAKOPOULOS and Stathis LONTOS left the band. Manolis and Akis GAVALAS were in search for new members. In late 1999 John GRIPEOS (bass guitar) joined the band while the search for a guitar player was still on. Finally after two years Tasos GRIPEOS came to complete the line-up. With him SOUND OF SILENCE started working songs for a full-length album. In early 2003 the band signed with Sleaszy Rider Records and released ''Spiritual Journey'' on June 16 of the same year. Recordings lasted until June and ''Spiritual Journey'' was mixed and mastered at Fragile Sound studio.

SOUND OF SILENCE draw influences both from American and European progressive/power metal (i.e. in the vein of CRIMSON GLORY and VANDEN PLAS) and create a powerful sound - ''Spiritual Journey'' is recommended to fans of the genre.

Review by b_olariu
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Sound of Silence is a forgotten progressive metal band from Greece with one album released in 2003 at Sleaszy rider records. Well a good progressive metal album , not far from Dream Theater fame, but with their own twists, also they have a very italian sound being also very near to what Empty Tremor or Madsword done years ago. Not bad at all, complex pieces, lenghty some of them, nice musicianship, good instrumental passages, as must sound a progressive metal album. The sound overall is kinda flat and drag the album little down , but the music is ok towards great. I like the album and from me desearves 3.5 stars, nothing really groundbreaking or fantastic, well played and well arranged. For fans of the band above mentioned this is a good aqusition. Among the best prog metal album I've heared from Greece. Forte pieces, all, not a weak moment here, all are same level and desearve attention.
