THE SILENCE has descended upon
us once again. In the
two years-plus since their previous album, Nine Suns, One
Morning, their leader Masaki Batoh recorded and released
his solo album, Nowhere - but from the first chimes of hazy
guitar arpeggios that open Metaphysical Feedback, we are
transported right back to the unique rock and roll space that
The Silence conjure whenever they plug in and come together.
Their group craft continues to expand, but in perfect line
with their previous albums. Also as with their previous three
albums, The Silence use the sound of analog recording as
an essential complement to their approach, using the famous
Studer 24-track machine at GOK Sound in Tokyo, where so
many legendary sessions have gone down - and now, one more!
