Out of Line Music is proud to announce the worldwide signing of SILENTIUM.
SILENTIUM is a Finnish Goth Metal pioneer that’s also received the dark blessing of a cult band status. Now finally SILENTIUM has ended their decade-long hibernation to beat back with the powerful comeback single “Unchained.”Welcome to the Out Of Line Music family!
Watch the brand-new “Unchained” lyric video here:
Riina Rinkininen states: “We are very happy to be signed to Out of Line Music as we think SILENTIUM is a great addition to their already impressive spread, that includes other kick-ass Finnish acts such as Bloodred Hourglass, BRYMIR, and BLIND CHANNEL.”
“The song is about beating the odds and not surrendering in the face of adversity, thus sending a fitting message for what the world is going through right now. I hope it can act as some encouragement in these trying times. I truly believe we can soldier through even the deepest turmoil – as humanity has in the past,” adds Riina.
“Unchained” was the first song to be completed for the upcoming SILENTIUM album. “For years it has lurked in the dark waiting to be released. The idea of this song started to grow from the rhythmic pattern hammered by Janne’s drums in the beginning of the track and evolved to this kind of a solid headbanger of the upcoming album. Riina’s amazing vocals and Aapeli’s and Juha’s smashing guitar leads then perfected the final arrangement”, Sami Boman concludes.
And Riina heartens: “The support and interest we’ve received from our fans across the globe throughout our long brewing period has been incredible. I can’t begin to tell you how happy we are to finally deliver new material to everyone who’s patiently stood by us through an entire decade of silence. We now hope to play live to as many people and in as many locations as possible, both in Finland and abroad – once the world returns to normal. More material is also already in the works.”
The long silence ended in May 2019 already when SILENTIUM released “Empty” as single and video which is a cover of the Finnish-French pop duo EVA+MANU. The release attracted a significant amount of attention on the radio, press, streaming services – as well as the depths of the world wide web. SILENTIUM, originally from the tiny town of Jämsänkoski, Finland, has played countless gigs both in Finland and abroad during their career and are known for their energetic live shows and fan-friendly approach. SILENTIUM will be releasing their sixth studio album later in summer via Out Of Line Music and are currently planning to accompany the release with a tour.
