Silent Kingdom are a band from Bosnia that started out as a melodic blackened death metal band but over the years have evolved into more of a dark progressive rock direction and this is a review of their 2017 album "Where Secrets Meet" which was reelased by Darknagar Records.
Acoustic guitars along with some clean vocals start off the album while drum beats and progressive rock elements are added onto the recording a few seconds later along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic fashion as well as adding in touches of folk music at times.
Psychedelic elements can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with a couple of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as some tracks also bringing in a small amount of female vocals and when keyboards are utilized they give the songs a more tragic atmosphere.
On this recording Silent Kingdom move way from a melodic black/death metal direction and goes into more of a dark progressive rock style, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in a mixture of English and Bosnian and cover darkness, fear and oblivion themes.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding recording from Silent Kingdom and while some fans of their melodic black/death metal style may not be into it as much, I can see this album finding a fan base among fans of dark progressive rock. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Alone" "Silence" and "Memories of Tomorrow". 8 out of 10.
