Cyprus-based Pitch Black Records announces the release of the debut album by French melodic metallers Silent Fall (formerly known as Winterland). Recorded and mixed at Wildpath Studio in France, the album features brilliant melodic metal achieved by unique compositions and performances on vocals (Adrien Eyraud), guitars (Olivier Caron & Pierre Cabannes), bass (Sylvain Rousselle), keyboards (Guillaume Tertis) and drums (Fabio Carnielli).
Titled Otherwise the album is available worldwide through Pitch Black Records with the CD version featuring a bonus track as well as an additional download track exclusively available for anyone who purchases the CD. The album is also available as a digital download through major mp3 stores.
Silent Fall was created in May 2005 out of the passion for music of three band members: Guillaume (keyboards), Cyrille (guitar) and Adrien (lead vocals).
2008 saw the departure of Cyrille and Ben, to be replaced very shortly by Sylvain and Pedro. The band now concentrated on creating new music while preparing for their first album. However, different musical tastes came to life within the band which lead to the departure of Paulo and Pedro. Sylvain thus decided to move to bass while two new musicians, Olivier (guitar) and Fabio (drums) settled into the group. Having recorded four songs at Wildpath Studios, the group took a short break to participate at Raismesfest 2008 alongside renowned bands such as Gamma Ray and Korpiklaani.
The decision to change the band?s name to Silent Fall came in early 2009 as it was discovered that another band performed under the same name. Silent Fall?s first full length album, Otherwise was recorded in May 2009 and the search for a label began while a few more live shows had been arranged.
Inspired in particular by bands like Angra, Sonata Arctica, Mercenary, Raintime and Edguy, the music of Silent Fall is a blend of melodic power and symphonic metal, while at the same time creating a unique personality reflected by the musical diversity of the band?s members.
Also released in February: Arryan Path's second release Terra Incognita and Lethal Saint's Lethal Saint.
