The Reticent are an NC outfit that are, as Hard Rock Haven put it, "progressive in the truest sense of the term." Beginning as an atmospheric acoustic side project for mastermind Chris Hathcock while he toured with war-metallers Wehrwolfe, The Reticent has become a fully realized emotional experience rooted in progressive rock and metal.
This is epitomized in the band's critically acclaimed 2016 release on Heaven & Hell Records, On The Eve Of A Goodbye produced by Jamie King (BTBAM, The Contortionist, Scale the Summit) - a tragic autobiographical concept record that chronicles the day before, day of, and day after the suicide of Hathcock's childhood friend Eve. Critics and fans alike have been moved by the compelling narrative, stirring music, and heartrending live performances.
As of 2020, Hathcock has begun preparing The Reticent for a new concept album and all new stage show. The forthcoming album (again produced by King), "The Oubliette," is another stirring autobiographical tale, this time of the tragedy of Alzheimer's disease. Fans and critics alike are eager to sink their teeth into another intense emotional outpouring of progressive metal as The Reticent prepares to release new music and strike back out on the road.
