So I am at the Jet Lounge with Lori (my sweetheart) celebrating her birthday and watching a few bands perform, and one of them (which I have seen many times before) again stands out.
This band is Silenced Within.
Normally I reserve my blog for ranting, raving, a general assholeish commentary…but in this case it is in a different way. My big complaint about Silenced Within is simply this: Why in the fuck are these guys always opening? They kick ass. Three records, fifty songs, amazing vocals, tight arrangements….What the FUCK is going on here.
To top it all off they are the picture of a professional act. They are always friendly (well…ok…Dave usually does not appear friendly but if you actually talk to him you find out that he is). They never seem to give a rats ass that they are continually passed up by less talented groups for better time slots and venues. Every time I have seen them they have put on a show as if they were the headliner…100% for the people that love them…100% of the time.
They are a very good gothic metal sounding group…so if you like that kind f music I can not recommend them enough. They even have a good bass player (always a plus in my book). Somebody needs to give them a goddamn record deal already….fuck.
Silenced Within played last night at the Jet Lounge at fucking 9:00 or so, a time slot normally reserved for bands right out of high school or other no names. They did this with an amazing professional attitude and put on a great show. They put every other band that played that night to shame. In fact, the talent distance between Silenced Within and the other assbaskets up there was larger than the balls of God himself.
Go see this band, buy a CD… somebody fuckin’ book them at a position they deserve.
