Xander : Recently the outfit called The Silverblack released their album ‘The Grand Turmoil’. This duo describes their music as industrial metal, but after a food few spins the conclusion that they might as well loose the term ‘metal’ seems justified.
The major part of the music on ‘The Grand Turmoil’ consists out of synthesizers. I mean, it took almost to the end of the third track before any ‘real’ electric guitar can be noticed. The rhythm guitars are done by a nasty sounding digital sound, and also the drums sound like they came straight from a low-budget drum computer. Add to this a singer that tries his best to scream as monotonous as possible over the tracks and the picture should be complete. Maybe some fanatic fans of pumped-up synths will dig this, but in my humble opinion the best moment of the album was the end of it, so I could put on some real metal again.
