Circle Of Silence are a band from Germany that plays a very old school form of power metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "The Rise Of Resistance" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with some fast drumming and a brief use of blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast old school power metal riffs that utilize a great amount of melody in the riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding power metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars they are only used on the last song and they use finger picking to bring a power ballad feeling to the recording.
Vocals are mostly clean singing power metal vocals with some aggressive sounding back up shouts being utilized at times, while the lyrics cover dark and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Circle Of Silence are a very great sounding old school power metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Eyes Of Anarchy" "An Oncoming Storm" "In The Absence Of Your God" and "The Architect Of Immortality". RECOMMENDED BUY.
