Silent Revenants are a seven-headed melodic
metal band with various musical influences.
The band plays melodic and handmade symphonic
metal which attracts with extraordinary instruments. The Silent
Revenants are mixing several styles of metal and add orchestral
parts as well as folk elements.
The band was founded in 2012. First of all it
was five-headed and very typical metal/rock line up. At the
foundation was clear where the musical journey should go: orchestral
melodies should meet crunchy guitars, groovy drums and a unique and
powerful voice. All band members brought extensive musical
experience into the project. So the first songs were written
the first studio recording (an EP called "Every Deam") and several

At the end of 2016 the band decided to start a
crowdfunding campaign to fund their first album. The campaign was a
complete success and the band started to record their first Album
"Walk with Fire" which is currently available on digital platforms
and as CD.
The "Silent Revenants" were indeed inspired
from bands like Nightwish, Metallica, or Epica but they very quickly
found and perfected their own, completely new and innovative sound.
There was a mixture of hard as well as "groovy" drums, driving
guitars and orchestral arrangements and folk elements. Add to that
the powerful voice of a singer and the recipe for a completely new
rock / metal was finished.
