Following the well-received June release of Flesh Of The God last year, the first single from the band’s upcoming second album, Project Silence finished 2015 off with its second teaser in the fiery shape of Infection. Living up to its name, the song is an invasive fusion of industrial metal and aggressive electronic invention for which the band is increasingly renowned for but ,as its predecessor, also with something fresh and individual to it which suggests that their upcoming sophomore full-length is going to be one fascinating and eventful proposition.
Hailing from Kuopio and formed by vocalist/programmer/keyboardist Delacroix in 2008, Project Silence was initially a solo project seeded in dark electro /aggrotech flavouring. Within months the addition of drummer Silve_R alongside guitarists J and Mr. Sanderz saw the band grow as indeed their sound which was in potent evidence on their acclaimed debut album 424 released 2012. With bass player Sturmpanzerjäger also on board by then, the album was a striking experimentation of industrial, electro, and diverse flavourings of melodic and extreme metal. Its success was matched and sound pushed on by two track single One Way to Hell the following year and even more so by Flesh Of The God and now Infection. The new single is confirmation that the band’s sound has blossomed again; in many ways to be harsher and more irritable but equally more melodically and symphonically intricate and imaginative too, which as suggested makes anticipation and intrigue for the next Project Silence album very eager.
Vocal and electronic suggestiveness collude to court the imagination initially as the song literally grows within ears, its drama soaked walls of muscular temptation and roguish rhythms washed in atmospheric mystery and synth sprayed melodic tempting. Similarly vocals provide a blend of contrasts and dark secrets within their opening baiting, it all blending into evolving rich adventure aligned to dips into equally pleasing clarity where classic and symphonic metal hues bound hand in hand through the ravenous industrial discontent fuelling the energy rousing proposition.
As with any Project Silence encounter the depths are as lively and imaginative as the surface, distinct and varied textures colliding and combining for a welcomingly fierce and anthemically corrosive contagion; something bordering on euphonic viral sound as predatory and merciless as it is enticing.
Igniting ears and appetite once again, Project Silence provokes one overriding thought with Infection; roll on album two.
