Majesty Of Silence are a band from Switzerland that plays a melodic, symphonic and gothic influenced for of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Zu Dunkel Fur Das Licht" which will be released in May as a joint effort between Extreme Metal Music and Rockshots Records.
Spoken word parts start off the album along with some grim black metal screams a few seconds alter which also takes the music into a heavier direction while the fast sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats along with the tracks also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
A great amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing while the keyboards gives the songs more of a symphonic feeling along with spoken word parts also returning on some of the later tracks and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and also add in a touch of goth metal as well as some of the tracks being very long and epic in length and as the album progresses operatic female vocals can also be heard on a few tracks, all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them.
Majesty Of Silence plays a style of black metal that it is very melodic and symphonic sounding along with son=me goth influences, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Swiss and cover darkness themes.
In my opinion Majesty Of Silence are a very great symphonic and melodic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Der untergang" "Endstille" "Sonne" and "Erlosung". 8 out of 10.
