Артист: Embassy Of Silence Название: Verisimilitude Жанр: Gothic Год выхода: 2015 Label: Inverse Records О музыке:
Embassy of Silence is a Finnish band on a purposeful mission to beautiful metal / rock music that makes positive chills
run down the spines of the listeners. Catchy melodies filled with grandeur, as well as experimentation are key elements in this musical project.
Acoustic guitars also play an important role in the music of EOS.
Ines Lukkanen was a guest female vocalist on the 2007 album of Tero Kalliomäki's band, Saattue, and during the recordings, an idea of an
emotional, atmosphere-filled rock/metal project was born. The duo immediately began composing and writing songs, and in the beginning of the 2008,
released "Wendigo Winter" promotional CD, which included the songs Lilith Aether, Passion and Savagery and Void. The promo got extremely good
feedback, and a couple of Finnish national radio stations played some of the songs featured on it.
EoS entered the studio again in 2008, this time with full lineup including Mikael Ahlsten on drums and Samu Lahtinen on bass, and recorded 4 more
songs to be included on the "Pristine" Ep. This CD reflected the heavier, faster and perhaps
even darker side of the band's music. Harri Lampinen also joined EoS to play the rhythm guitars, which meant that all of the new members were
borrowed from Saattue. Soon enough the band acquired a keyboard player by coincidence,
through a double-gig with Dotma, in which Harri Koskela was the main orchestrator.
In 2009 Embassy of Silence recorded "Euphorialight", the opus magnum of the band. It was a self-financed, carefully crafted collection of 11 songs, of
which 8 were composed solely for this full-length album. It intended to show the broad variety of sounds and styles Embassy of Silence was capable of
entertaining its listeners with - from morbid to cheerful, from demure to twisted, and from ravishingly beautiful to wild and unhinged. It was
recorded at the Finnish D-Studio, with Jarno Hänninen, as were the previous recordings.
2009 was also the year of major lineup changes, as the drummer Mikael was replaced by groove master, Jaakko Hauru, and at the end of the year, Harri
also left the the band because he had no time for two bands anymore. Euphorialight was mastered at Sweden's Cutting Room, in Stockholm in the
fall of 2009 by Björn Engelmann, which gave the recording its final touches. It was hardly even out of the press and sent to different lables with
the promotional video "Into the Euphorialight", when Johnny Hagel from Bonnier Amigo Music Group surprisingly contacted the band via email. He had
heard Embassy of Silence on MySpace, and told them BAMG was going to start a sublabel, concentrating on metal and rock, and offering a deal.
Fortunately the music/promotion multitalent Matti Remes was already on board in the role of a manager, and he negotiated a contract that pleased both
After Harri Lampinen left EoS at the end of 2009, the orchestra battled with a guitar-player dilemma far into February, going through several
auditioning guitarists, no one quite fitting the bill. This was only until Tero took the topic up with a former bandmember from Ultramayhem, Jarno
Suodenjoki. His other ensemble, Kiana, was taking fire, which was not considered to be a problem, but by fitting together the schedules of the two
bands, everyone was sure to keep both groups happy.
