Independent Release

Review by Tony Cannella

Silent Memories are a Gothic Metal band from Barcelona, Spain. Their independently release debut is called, “Memories of the Lost Souls” and is available now. “Memories of the Lost Souls” features only 7-songs and a playing time of about 35-minutes long. The opening track, “Soul Pain” features a pretty solid opening riff and includes the semi-operatic vocals provided by Mary Carmen Romero. Guitarist Miki Luzón is also on hand to lend some extreme male vocals to the song. “Too Late” is next and this song really picks up the tempo, with a biting fast paced guitar riff. Once again you have the extreme male vocals working in conjunction with the pretty female vocals put forth by Mary. Overall, this was my favorite track, and the best vocal performance (in my opinion) by Mary Romero. “Thoughts Lost” keeps the tempo at a faster level, and that song is followed by the excellent, “Underskinned”. The next track “Sleep” offers a brief respite from the heavy riffs and provides the CD with a surprisingly tender moment, before getting heavier but still maintaining a mid-tempo pace. “Let Me Be” and “Heaven’s Waiting” are two more solid tracks that brings “Memories of the Lost Souls” to an end. Even though Silent Memories have only been in existence since 2007, the band has certainly honed their craft, a fact that is evidenced on “Memories of the Lost Souls”.

Rating – 82/100
