Silent Skies: Satellites

Extending out to the differentiating branches of charmingly written melodious textures and fundamentally exploring the fine roots of deeper avenues, the accomplished duo of Silent Skies advance in the elegantly formed shape of a masterfully alluring project from the Swedish born eminent Evergrey guitar slaying frontman Tom Englund and the Cleveland, Ohio based classically-trained piano specialist Vikram Shankar; both known for their sublime suit of work in the established United States situated Progressive Metal outfit Redemption as they come swiftly forward to quintessentially distribute an admirably-gifted cinematic presence through a thorough void of divine musicality and a captivatingly resplendent performance.

Comprehensively, if you are expecting a strapping dose of some progressively-driven Heavy Metal here then you are in for an appearance of the most extensive type of a revelation that is so far from any classification or strain of Metal music and it is expressed in the weight of the downright outcome of this exploration from the pair; moreover, this is a deeply emotional experimental experience where Shankar and Englund get to express the most profound stretch of warmth and the ark of bitter coldness combined together in a stirring pot of faith, love and humanity; leaving you gasping for more and more as seen through the awe-inspiring chambers of the gracefully-constructed track of the imposingly composed ‘Solitude’ and the spiritually blissful fragments of the impressively-indulgent hooks of the luminescent episode ‘Endless’.

In the candidly selected state of a complete necessity for an honourable mention from the delicate transitions of ‘Satellites’, we have from the offset of the amiable opening components inside the ambitiously-constructed extensive wavelengths of the enchanting tentacles dwelling between the magnificently fabricated configurations of ‘Horizons’ and the soothing reigns of the astoundingly chosen rendition of Eurythmics’ 1983 classic ‘Here Comes the Rain Again’ from the the pop duo’s third album ‘Touch’; capturing the true heart of Tom Englund in his finest form yet. As a duo Tom and Shankar work extremely well together, Englund bounces off Vikram in a perfect way that is remarkably fitting for each performance, even with the addition of an outstanding version of the Evergrey song ‘Distance’ from the album ‘The Storm Within’ to connect to the mix; sensationally attaching to the notable sentimental realms of a whole new division in its own right and standing its own shower of excellence as a mellifluously commanding output giving a whole appreciably masterful escapade for listeners to indulge on or feasibly obsess over.
