SILVER LAKE is an Italian Progressive Metal band that emerged on the scene back in
2003. The band has progressed and enhanced it's sound over the years. As the years went
on they perfected their sound into a Progressive Metal machine. "EVERY SHAPE AND
SIZE" is the bands second full length release to date. They have a more dynamic and
powerful sound that almost fuses Power Metal with Progressive Metal. The music the have
created has a huge sound that sucks you in and take you to a different world. It's like a dark
and mystical journey full of many questions and more. Their sound tends to remind me of
DREAM THEATER with some touches of ANGRA mixed with FATES WARNING and
FLOTSAM & JETSAM with a more Progressive sound like OPETH without the
Death Metal elements. They have some slight touches of Speed Metal in the faster guitar
parts, but they are more in a Progressive style as well. It's as if they have taken the
different genres they are influenced by and tweaked them with a Progressive vibe. The
vocals are done in a mid ranged clean Prog Rock vocal style with some higher pitched
almost Power Metal vocals.
SILVER LAKE left a great impression on me, cause I am not a
huge fan of Progressive Metal and I found myself listening to this over and over again. If
you dig the bands mentioned above or ones like them, then your gonna love
