Shattered Silence - Lars Bjørn - 5 stars

Shattered Silence

Shattered Silence
(Lion Music - 2011)

Francesco Fareri comes to the air with self-composed guitar music that he finds is a renewer of the music business. It takes in elements from progressive to trash metal in Virtual Mind's debut album with aggressive but yet still very traditional progressive metal. So the refreshing and renewing material maybe comes in later material from them, because these 7 songs are both confusing and a big massive stirring in the trashy metal melting pot where only the songs Fear, and The End Of The Illusion can be avoiding red ears of shame. The talent and ambition is absolutely present, but they clearly needs more work before one could call their music successful. Hopefully a better album from the Italian rockers next time.

5 stars
