Maltese melodic metal veterans WEEPING SILENCE have recently signed a Management and Booking deal with Nick Grima MGT.
WEEPING SILENCE is a Melodic Metal band with Death and Progressive Metal influences based in Malta. The band has evolved steadily since its formation in 1998 and has since released four albums with record labels, the latest one being through Massacre Records (DE).
Weeping Silence’s solid work-ethic and reputation has enabled it to play in numerous festivals both locally and abroad – including Metaldays Open Air (twice) and Gothoom. The band has also supported / co-headlined several internationally-renowned bands such as Therion, Moonspell, Lacuna Coil, Septic Flesh, Orphaned land, Cadaveria, Draconian, Moonsorrow and Ahab.
Since 2018, Weeping Silence has merged its earlier atmospheric Gothic Doom roots with the more eclectic, dynamic and conceptual approach that characterises the current musical direction. In 2011, Weeping Silence released its second album ‘Theatre of Life’ that was characterised by midpace gothic elements and grandiose orchestrations. The track ‘Dark Waters’ off this album was voted first in the EKR A-List People’s Choice Poll. After the release of this album, the band decided to open the door for international festivals and tours, and opportunities started presenting themselves immediately.
Weeping Silence entered the studio again to record ‘For the Unsung’. Released in deluxe digipack edition in 2012 by Ravenheart Rec (UK), it features male backing vocals for the first time, and marked a step towards a more pronounced Doom Metal element in the band. Within this more aggressive, gothic-doom framework, Anders Jacobsson of renowned Swedish act Draconian featured as guest vocalist.
