Genre/Influences: EBM, Industrial, Experimental, IDM.
Background/Info: Based in Ohio (USA) Silence Embrace has released different works during the past two years. This is their newest work featuring six songs.
Content: The work is pretty diversified; taking off with an Experimental cut with some Minimal-Electro and IDM influences on top. The minimal side remains while other songs are also covering other influences like EBM and broken beats while there’s also a song with a catchy chorus.
+ + + : This EP sounds a bit like an Electronic chameleon; a wider range of influences which has been mixed together. The production sounds a bit unpolished although reflecting interesting ideas like on “Someone’s Dead” and the more complex “The House Awaits”.
– – – : I get the feeling this band still has to find its own sound. The work sounds a bit versatile although featuring good ideas.
Conclusion: Nothing groundbreaking but enjoyable and featuring promising passages.
Best songs: “Someone’s Dead”, “The House Awaits”.

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast.

Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
