Prog Reviewer
3 stars Starless is a japanese prog band that was until few years ago a totaly unknown name to me. Formed in mid 80's and confronting with line up changes across the years they manage to release only 3 albums so far, with lots of years between albums. Song of silence is from 1992, issued by french label Musea. Well, what we have here is a mixed bag of prog metal, symphonic prog, heavy prog even some heavy metal is added, but the result is quite acceptable and fairly ok most of the time, and all done is that specific japanese tradition not far from Outer Limits or Novela. Powerfull progressive metal guitar arrangements like on title track Song of Silence , the longest and the best piece of the album,combined with some like Yes keyboards in places makes from this album a pleasent ride, and when is added some beautiful female vocals the atmosphere is more then ok. What to say more, a good album, not something fantastic , but pleasent and enjoyble for sure. 3 stars.
