Then Comes Silence are the Swedish captains of postpunk. The quartet from Stockholm is a fresh breeze of gothic renaissance, kicking darkness around with hammering rhythms and melodies that make hearts melt and blood freeze.
The fascination for doom and darkness pervade and influence every tune and word. The music of Then Comes Silence takes the listener on a journey from swinging postpunk to the shadows of goth-gaze and into scraps of coal hearted psych. The sharp soundscape is intense, massive and pounding. The lyrics flirt with death and sorrow. It’s goth, psychedelica, rock and post-punk in a symbiosis. Since Then Comes Silence’s very first show, as the opening act for A Place to Bury Strangers in 2012, the band has toured frequently around Europe and released four full-length albums.
"The sonic collaboration of two guitars creates an imaginative dimensional sonic picture, propelled either side of the drum and bass lead, like a dark and winged creature. Sinister and threatening vocals set up a presence that is both exciting and foreboding. Adrenaline guaranteed!
Their music attracts wide attention and is praised for its apocalyptic sound and dystopian message. Their fourth album, “Blood”, released October 20th 2017 on Nuclear Blast was produced and engineered by Tom van Heesch (Rammstein, Entombed A.D., Backyard Babies, Michael Monroe).
