What is the meaning of the song?
Tears Of A Fallen Hero – Scream In The Silence
Why should ‘Scream in the silence’ be your song? Before we go any deeper into the atmosphere of ‘Scream in the silence‘, I would like to take this opportunity to talk about ‘Black and blue‘ for a few sentences. I got to know the band thanks to their single ‘Black and Blue‘ from March, which already made me feel that their project was worth following, as it has the potential to be a great one. It’s always special to see the step by step growth of a musician or a band, the new milestones they reach. Although not much time has passed between the two tracks and the release of the album may be more representative of the band’s strengths and weaknesses, Scream in the silence is also significant, especially shortly before the album’s debut. What do we get in this nearly 4-minute song? First and foremost, a great amount of energy which shines through in all aspects. There’s a pulsating instrumental, giving the slower vocal segments a throb. The guitar playing seems to be the main creator of the dynamism, however I wouldn’t argue the importance of the drums as they greatly aid the transitions between the different structural parts. The vocals remain clean vocals throughout, there are no screams, but this is not surprising given the style of the band. In contrast to the slower, more melancholic vocals of Black and blue, Scream in the silence features a more upbeat, dynamic approach, apart from the more atmospheric, more relaxed bridge. All in all, Scream in the silence is a delightful, thoughtfully constructed song, for which a music video has been filmed to further develop the lyrics.
What can we expect from Tears Of A Fallen Hero in the future? By listening to the five singles, we can get some perspective on what to expect when the album is released, making it easier for us to decide how much of this album we can call our own. In some areas, you can still feel the band’s sound is being polished and a certain identity is evolving that could become a defining characteristic long-term. You can definitely tell that Tears Of A Fallen Hero is striving for variety and that they know what direction they want to go and what they want to focus on. They are only at the beginning of their journey with the release of their first full-length album, but that is another reason not to lose them from your sight! Receiving feedback and gaining experiences about the album will help the band to make significant progress, especially if they manage to capture the interest of their potential audience with a quality album.
If you don’t want to miss the debut album of Tears Of A Fallen Hero, entitled Save us from ourselves, which will be out later this autumn, then it might be a worthwhile idea to follow the band’s social media platforms. You can find most of them at the links below!
