Italian / Malaysian-based band Silent Angel is ready to reveal its first single “Against The Tides” off their first full-length “Unyielding, Unrelenting” to be released on Rockshots Records this coming November 2023.
“This tune was one of the last songs I wrote for the record. It was written during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic that brought the world to its knees back in 2020 – 2022 and subsequently the invasion of Ukraine. I was toying around with the riff and rhythm structure for quite some time. Seeing friends across the world, family and relatives fall victim to the effects of the pandemic drove me to pen the lyrics as a means to inspire any and everyone afflicted to stand strong and persevere. Never to give up in the face of insurmountable odds“,
adds guitarist Eric “StormBlade” Poon.
An international collective Silent Angel, an Italian / Malaysian-based band that has its foundations deeply rooted in power and symphonic metal with a mix of progressive along with Japanese metal influence. Silent Angel’s debut album “Unyielding, Unrelenting” has been a long time coming. Working on a shoestring budget, Silent Angel started off by recording some demos and put out a roughly recorded EP just to see if the music had potential and it did. Changing their lineup along with the global pandemic setting things back by a few years, through all the trials and tribulations, their hard work, dedication, and efforts are finally coming to fruition. Immerse yourself in the music and let it give you the strength and courage to face your demons and overcome adversity. There will be a Silent Angel, a guardian, a protector that will give you that sliver of hope and nudge to push on and fight for a better future as you listen to ten tracks of power/symphonic metal. “Unyielding, Unrelenting” offers a lot of pleasant vintage vibes, magnificent guitar solos, and hammering drums, but also sentimental and quiet moments and unique melody lines with its soaring duo vocals and energetic rock singing from Claudia Beltrame, frontwoman for Italian symphonic prog band, Degrees Of Truth and Gracie Shona, well known from the Malaysian club scene.
“This is definitely the most time ever spent on a music project for me, but I certainly believe in the music and the individuals that I am currently working with to make this dream a reality. The tracks are actually a selection of songs that I wrote back in the late 90s until the resurgence and reformation of Silent Angel in 2015 and subsequently, resumed writing and composing the music, lyrics, and song arrangement. I can safely say that our journey has officially begun and I, on behalf of the whole band hope that our fans and supporters from across the world will truly enjoy this labour of love of ours”,
adds Eric Poon.
Recommended for fans of power and symphonic metal and bands such as Iron Maiden, Helloween, Stratovarius, Rhapsody, and Hammerfall, Silent Angel’s “Unyielding, Unrelenting” is due out on November 24th from Rockshots Records.
