¡Despierta! by Your Screaming Silence: EP Review
The Moscow, Russia contemporary metal band Your Screaming Silence has released a five-song EP named ‘¡Despierta!’. This EP is representative of the band’s style, which is a fusion of post-hardcore and metal with earth shattering instrumentation and high energetic vocals.
The opener ‘Light up the Fire’ serves as a mood-setter for the rest of the EP. The strong, gruff vocals soar over a bed of distorted guitar chords in this song. One of the highlights of the EP is the second song, ‘¡Despierta!’ which also happens to be the title track. Brilliant guitar work and energetic vocals create a tune that is equal parts aggressive and melodic. The third track, ‘Remember Who You Are’, sets off a futuristic vibe that highlights Natalia Kryukova’s expressive voice. The song develops to a dramatic climax and has eerie, atmospheric production. Song number four, titled ‘One More Life’, has dense beats and an ominous bassline. When the EP ends with ‘Feel Alive’, the listener is left feeling energized and ready to take on the world. ‘Your Screaming Silence’ displays their versatility as a band by blending musical styles throughout the EP. All of the band members have outstanding musical chops and provide something special to the group’s sound. This playthrough demonstrates the band’s talent and shows they have what it takes to make it big in the current metal scene.
‘¡Despierta!’ is a fantastic EP by Your Screaming Silence. It serves as evidence of the band’s skill as musicians and songwriters, demonstrating their ability to combine disparate sounds into a unified whole, making it a must for any fan of contemporary metal or post-hardcore.
