FESTER (Norway) “Silence” DIGI CD review

by Pest Webzine

By Adrian

Fascinating album, very interesting and at the same time controversial. The closest definition I could come up with on the music presented here is Dark Metal and that’s only the music has a general dark atmosphere, but you should imagine a combination of: Hard’n”Heavy guitar riffs with occasional Doomy passages, a slight Black Metal feeling here and there, melodic guitar leads, a light Thrashy mid-tempo rhythm section and vocals that mostly range within the whisperings tonalities. The album was first released by Lethal Records in 1993, so given the controversial times in Norway with all that Black Metal stir happening, it was quite odd for them to choose this less aggressive, but still very sombre style. A lesson of swimming against the currents. I like this album much more than their previous, “Winter of Sin”, the band added good keyboard background and also the sound is much better.

Rating: 8.5/10
