Hey guys I want to share this band with you all that I recently discovered:

This is from their newest record:

They are called Silent Civilian and they are sort of a modern Metal/Metalcore/Thrash Metal Band who have put out 2 records now. I absolutely love their sound and music (propably because I am playing a very similar style with my own band). The drums are incredible but at no times over the top, the riffs and leads are awesome and the vocals are really powerfull!

Here is some older, more metalcore-like stuff by the band:


- Jackson USA Select KV2 King V with EMG 81/85
- Gibson Les Paul Custom Arctic White with EMG 81/85
- Ibanez Rg 8527 J Custom 7-String with DiMarzio Evolution and Air Norton

- Peavey 6505+ head with Marshall 1960AV 4x12 cab
- Peavey Vypyr 30 Practice Amp
- Dunlop Crybaby From Hell, Maxon OD808, Boss TU-2, MXR CarbonCopy, ISP Decimator, MXR Custom Audio Electronics Booster

that second one sounds a little like strapping young lad,

it's a great band indeed,

but it's getting a bit cliched to do the clean vocal choruses after screaming verses,

Their songs are very well crafted, and the music is pretty good, but the American metal scene is COMPLETELY saturated with bands that have pretty much the same sound and image. It then just boils down to who gets the most support from their label.

Got to agree. SC haven't gotten much attention probably cause there just another band in a thousand on the scene. Saturation is a good word I think, the scene is soaked with this kind of stuff, hard to make your music stand out and get proper attention, especially in America.

They are very good. Still, it seems that market is saturated with lots of good bands....
