Silent Voices was founded in 1995 by guitarist Timo Kauppinen, bassist Pasi Kauppinen, drummer Jukka-Pekka Koivisto and keyboardist Henrik Klingenberg. At the time their main influences were Dream Theater and Rush. A couple of years later the line-up was completed when Michael Henneken joined in on vocals. The band rehearsed intensely, made a couple of EP's & singles and finally signed a deal and released their debut album “Chapters of Tragedy” (in 2002) through Low Frequency Records.
Two more albums were made, “Infernal” (2004) and “Building up the apathy” (2006) before the first era came to a end when the groups vocalist Michael Henneken left the band. Instead of desperately searching for a new vocalist the band opted for a time-out, taking a well earned break for over a year.. and now the silence is finally over.
The fourth Silent Voices studio album entitled “Reveal The Change” features the quartet of Henrik Klingenberg, Pasi Kauppinen, Timo Kauppinen and Jukka-Pekka Koivisto as well as guest performances on lead & background vocals by Mats Levén (Therion, Yngwie Malmsteen), Tony Kakko (Sonata Arctica), Mike Vescera (Loudness, Yngwie Malmsteen), Mike DiMeo (Riot, Masterplan) and Teemu Koskela (Winterborn).
Reveal The Change was recorded and mixed at Studio57 [Sonata Arctica, Revolution Renaissance] in Alaveteli, Finland and mastered by Ted Jensen [Bon Jovi, Dream Theater, Megadeth] at Sterling Sound, New York, NY.
The album is definitely a metal masterpiece. This "must have" album with killing sound and spectacular vocals by Koskela, Levén, Kakko, Vescera and DiMeo will make waves in the scene.. If you love progressive metal, then you will definitely love Silent Voices.
