Swiss formation Silver Dust makes a combination of Heavy, Classic and some Gothic Metal. The band just released their third full length album “House 21”. It is available now.
“House 21” is an album that comes with a story. Dating back to second world war, where a soldier runs away from his duty and seeks residence in a house that seems somewhat haunted.
“The Unknown Soldier”, “This War Is Not Mine” and “The Calling” quite tell the story and stick out a bit above others. Also interesting is that there is collaboration with mr Lordi, which gives only strength to the story.
Vocally we get quite a diversity. A lot of higher notes but switching it off with the lower range you get quite some variation from vocalist Lord Campbell. Combined with the theatrical sounds, the arrangements it is here and there a bit odd. Reminded me first of Bigelf, but Silver Dust does not take it that far. Some other ref for me would be Charon, but that is mainly the vocals that come to that.
With eleven tracks on the counter the guys have given us quite something to listen to. From the slower, dark songs towards a more hyperactive track back to something that may as well be a radio song. The guys are diverse and bring a sotry you can listen to. Quite enjoyable.
