Nice piano start, cello and emotional voice so it makes your hairs stand up. A Sad Sympathy follows. This starts with atmospheric synth chords - quite dreamy and then piano and vocals start.
Another lovely track. The next track is Questions which is so accessible that it seems radio friendly like Kayleigh by Marillion. Next is Answer To Life which is more about guitar and drums but it is perfectly melodic - you don't always need keys for melody. Message From The Past is back to the mounful piano and synth chords. Beautiful and yet desperately sad sounding - especially when the cello solo plays.
The Last Embrace follows. Strange whispering vocals and it does get a bit shouty to be honest. The album then drifts into A Kind Of Eden which starts with birdsong and some out-of-body vocals if you can imagine that. The album ends with the title track Posthumous Silence. This comprises mournful piano and synth chords and lovely it is too. What I haven't mentioned is that peppered throughout the album are samples of an adult male and female arguing bitterly.
We know that the album story is about a father who picks up the diary of his deceased daughter who we understand has killed herself, to try and make some sense of his loss. Hopefully someone can explain this to me: The arguments are clearly between two adults and yet there is a news broadcast that describes how a little girl is found dead in a dumpster.
So what is the relationship between the girl and the arguing adults???? Copyright Prog Archives, All rights reserved. Please consider supporting us by disabling your ad blocker. This is prog that seems comfortable in both the neo and metal genres. With their debut album "Deliverance", the German band from Hamburg open the door to this hidden world for all of us.
The music takes you onto a journey full of miracles, dreams, love, passion and fortune. The dominant style of SYLVAN is a mix of Symphonic Progressive Rock, neo Progressive and Classical Rock including touchs of the Progressive Metal, blended together in a new and interesting way, decorated with lot of intricate keyboards and guitars sounds and grandiose musical passages in all songs. Studio Album, 3. Home Sylvan Neo-Prog Review by javajeff. In my opinion this is right up there with all the other albums of this great band.
Beautiful harmonies and melodies and instantly recognisable as Sylvan characterised by Marco's superb and haunting voice. I can't see the point of pigeon holing bands into prog sub genres so I won't try. If you are a genuine Sylvan fan I will be amazed if you don't like this album. Notify me of new comments via email.
