Following a turbulent few months for the band, melodeath outfit Silenmara have come back fighting with a brand new music video single and details of a polished EP produced by Jamie King that promotes their fight for musical freedom.

Jason Gato (guitars) says this about the track
“Lyrically, the song Visionary was written about decisions… A person can take one of two roads. One simple mistake or miscalculation could be life changing or even fatal. On the other hand one focused and calculated decision can change a persons life for the best. It’s all about your mindset and your ability to make serious decisions under pressure. When you’re on a “Bridge of defeat, could you stand for denial”?
Musically we wrote this song for one specific purpose, to deliver an emotion. We wanted our people to feel the love we have for this music. It is filled with guitar melodies and odd time trickery that we have come to embrace in our writing. A very catchy guitar lick meets an aggressive vocal melody begging for guidance and hoping for forgiveness.
We chose this song for its ability to find its way into your mind and stay. Our Vision of musical freedom.”

Having fought through hurricanes, family deaths and constant delays on the production of the EP, Silenmara are now ready to unleash their masterpiece onto the world and look forward to reclaiming their fan’s hearts.
Hailing from Miami Florida, Silenmara is bringing melodic death metal back to the masses. Silenmara combines the best aspects of the two most iconic death metal schools in the world; the melodic flails of Sweden’s Gothenburg sound with Florida’s style of aggressive death metal.
Silenmara have shared the stage with the likes of Evergrey, Dark Tranquility, Nonpoint, Fear Factory, Scar Symmetry and more.
“Our sound is evolving, the music is reaching a new maturity. We feel that this is our best work to date.” Says drummer Adrian Perez.
“We try and keep a steady growth in our music, we always try to raise the bar in every aspect including our melodic sensibilities. We are a heavy metal band at heart but melody is always a key component of our songs”. Says Guitar player Jason Gato
2017 sees Silenmara embarking into a new era with the release of their fourth studio effort “A Darkened visionary” EP which is set for a December 15th release. This EP welcomes new guitar player Marcus Noga, which has only broadened Silenmara’s musical horizons. Silenmara has also contracted the talented Giovanni Angel to engineer the EP and Jamie King (The Contortionist, BTBAM) to mix and master the record. The outcome is a very polished, matured and reenergised recording.
“This EP was very emotionally driven, we lost a few family members during the tracking process, that really hurt the progress at the beginning, but we did it. We powered through some pretty serious personal tragedies. We also had to deal with a Category 4 hurricane IRMA during the mixing process, that was also a bit of an inconvenience to say the least” says guitar player Jason Gato.
Fans of Melodic Death Metal of the Scandinavian variety, beware. Silenmara is here to stay, and not even a hurricane will stop them.
