Elisabeth : Intelligent melodic death metal is really not the first thing that comes to mind when I think of the sunny island of Mallorca. Rather drinking out of buckets or something similar. Anyway, that's not what it's about now! What first started as a solo project by guitarist Raúl Morán, became a serious matter and quickly became a quintet from the one-man-company. On ‘Silent Witness’, Aeolian take over the part of mother earth that unfortunately cannot speak for itself and want us to point out with their lyrics and their music that we have to deal with nature and our surroundings. Each song is written out of sight of nature and combined with partial folk parts, the hard side of death metal and playful melodic elements, this has become an interesting, intelligent and entertaining record. They know how to create a unique sound with all these elements and always surprise me. ‘Silent Witness’ is an incredibly good addition for fans of melodic death metal and a theme that concerns us all!
