In State of Delusion

Rated 0/5 (0%) (0 Votes)

Silent Delusion is a Portuguese Symphonic Metal band that employs multiple female singers with both operatic and traditional clean singing for their debut In State of Delusion. On the plus side, Silent Delusion's songs are centered on the guitar riff and are not anything you might call "flowery." The guitar tone is decent even if the riffs themselves aren't very interesting but at least they aren't drowning in keyboards. On the negative side, the production is flat and sterile with no warmth whatsoever. The vocals sound artificial, like they were recorded elsewhere and pro-tooled into the songs. Add in some terrible vocal lines, many of which sound completely forced and a few that are flat (:48 seconds into "Delusion" being the most egregious) and you've got an album that strives to be something special but simply isn't. The multiple singers bring to mind Germany's Coronatus but Silent Delusion have a long way to go before they are in the same league.
