SILENT GRACE was formed in early 2007.

We've never had a question , what style to play ... from the outset it was clear that it would be progressive , art rock , or something like that. Not as important as a genre of music called . Everything is relative and conditional ... If we talk about the creativity and its orientation is likely to commit this kind of feelings, experiences , ups and downs - what comes from the inside by the sound waves are reflected in the heart of the listener , it can make an unwitting participant in a certain internal action. And it does not matter how accurate our presentation , we are investing in contact with the perception of other people. Important for us to make music has left its mark . To listen to the moment was the moment of sincerity, when there is the need to explain that either . It is no great revelation , if we say that to a greater extent Compose for yourself. But if there are people who will like our work , we are doubly happy!" -" rel="nofollow -  (Google translate)" rel="nofollow -

"Progressive rock sounded in South November 8. Odessa concert band Silent Grace held in the small hall of DC " Friendship ." On stage musical quartet : bass guitar , drums , electric guitar and viola - performed music of his own.
Team with a long history , established 15 years ago , a long time coming for the music track ... finally formed a group in 2007. As told to "Re: Post" , the group's leader , bassist - Vyacheslav Babienko musicians many times experimenting with styles . Standing restricted to rock - the music was not. Now they play progressive rock , where you can catch the theme ethno , folk- fusion , jazz sound. With their compositions team performs at festivals , where similar musical styles are leitmotifs .
Team brought in DC "Friendship" yuzhnenets - Sergei Romanyukin, a company spokesman Rockit, in a recording studio where, group rehearses. Team has worked well and so they were invited to a concert in DC. Most of the tools guys brought with them, but took a drum set in the palace of culture.

At the concert, there was another musician - keyboardist. By the way, only he and viola player Natalia have classical music education - they are graduates of Odessa Conservatory. The remaining members of the band - a self-taught
11 tracks, with titles prompt reflection on the impermanence of life, the musicians performed. As we were told the leader of the group, the music born in the collective work. Vocal accompaniment provided. Drummer Andrew writes poetry and prose, but so far only guys create musical compositions. Also, as a supplement to speech, the scene on the screen was supposed to be a certain visuals complementing musical performance, but due to technical problems, video installation failed.
About how the creative activity, musician replied that act in Odessa, has recently been in Balaklava at the festival. Waiting for a trip to Kiev.
History associated with the creation of the song "Towards transience," said bassist: musicians jokingly just decided to create something like a composition style - King Crimson, eventually created his tune:

another Svetonio's nice suggestion, though overlooked.
or ignored? yes i know that here are all volunteers [including also those long term suggesters] but since April 2014, when this brilliant band was suggested for database, it was quite enough time for the PA' Eclectic prog team gentlemen to write something in this thread.

Strange that this band has been ignored for so long, from the samples they definitely seem fit for the site...

We'll check them out.

I don't think the band was ignored but there is a good chance Svetonio was. Back then he was suggesting 3-4-5 bands a day. He wouldn't slow them down or help with any of them, so I gather people just got fed up with him and ignored the incessant suggestions waves.

^ Understandable, I suppose.

Regardless, they're under evaluation now with one yes vote so far. Thumbs Up

Interestingly, the videos that started this thread showed a female violin (viola?) player at least two tracks (Another Autumn, Through the Years).  She is not present on the studio album (Through the Years).  Her parts evidently replaced by guitar and/or keys..." rel="nofollow -

IMHO, her absence makes the overall work much less "proggy".  Just sayin'...

^Completely agree. Her playing really dialed it in.

Please bear with us until then!
