The previously independent melodic-metalcore band, Silent Planet have announced their signing to Solid State Records. This enormously talented band has an artistic edge that surpasses most in their field.
Silent Planet released their first EP Come Wind, Come Weather in 2012. Their follow-up, the 2013 lastsleep (1944-1946) truly showed what Silent Planet could accomplish. The five track recording follows three female characters through World War II and reveals the darkness of those times. “Darkstrand (Hibakusha)” is a superb track, dark, rich and brooding, switching from harsh vocals blending into a subdued melody. It’s simply perfect.
lastsleep (1944-1946) went on to gather critical acclaim. HM Magazine’s CEO and Editor-in-Chief, David Stagg, gave it a perfect five-star rating, saying it was “hands down, one of the best five-song releases I’ve heard, a perfection of the metalcore genre.”
Silent Planet are planning Nov 10, 2014 as the release date for their label debut, the night God slept, with Solid State Records. Enjoy this glimpse of the upcoming album.[youtube http://youtu.be/QCKG4L3AZdA]
