Hailing from Paris, Dry Silence has a seemingly unconcealed admiration for all things Roadrunner. Melding together some of the more extreme nu-metal ethics of Soulfly, Slipknot, and Coal Chamber with an abrasive metalcore technique in their attack. Naturally, the band may have additional influences outside of the label in question, however, they are not quite as distinct as those proposed thus far. It may even be plausible, but doubtful, that the French quintet are in no way, shape, or form linked to any of them. Who knows for certain? I'm stickin' with my existing assumption.
This independent promotional release presents two solidly written tunes and fronts a massive production for a self financed venture. Opening the disc is "Insane", a track that touches heavily on Mudvayne and ever so slightly on Korn. We're talking about the pre-trend days of yore, not the 'best selling artist at Hot Topic' and 'Uranium: Metal Whore' era. Figure on "Dig" and "Not Falling" without the MTV friendly treatment. Second, and lastly, is "Death Is Coming". This jam has a knack for utilizing some of the straightforward, almost punk rockin' elements of the Murderdolls at numerous points, amid fervid bursts of rebellion and anger. Obscured thirty seconds or so beyond the end of "Death Is Coming" awaits an ambient sort of instrumental, hosting some synth and light guitar sounds. The silence after the storm, so to speak.
This could almost be considered your kid sister's metal, but it has enough balls for just about any metal head to get into. As discussed previously, Dry Silence would perch comfortably on the Roadrunner Records family tree, though they are much more delectable than the bulk of the acts on the current roster. Look for a full-length offering sometime in early 2005. Maybe by then they will have inked a deal.
