Heavy Metal New Blood Band Profile - Final Silence

Final Silence

Willie - Vocals
Swan - Bass/Backing Vocals
Dave - Guitars/Keys
Cowie - Drums

Final Silence a Heavy Metal Band from Stirlingshire/Clackmannanshire formed in February 2006. Formed from the remnants of a prior band and after going through various line up changes the band settled on their current incarnation in March 2010.

With influences within the band ranging from thrash, hardcore, melodic, metalcore and nu-metal the band don't pin themselves down to one specific genre of metal music. They consider themselves an all round metal act "drawing from sub-genres to make a whole sound"

Clearly not one for resting on their laurels Final Silence have released three demos between 2007 and 2008, followed by a debut EP "Past Remains" in 2009, a follow up EP "Dawn on a new Day" in 2010 and then their debut full length album "We are this for a Reason" in the summer of 2011. You can check out the Heavy Metal Bullet review of "We are the Reason" here

Even with all these releases the band are not complacent and are constantly writing new material. They are also planning on touring around the UK to promote their album... Heavy Metal Bullet are definitely hoping for a London date!

" grim it would be to be in the presence of a person's dying breath, or more poetically their final silence" - Willie
So furthering my curiosity on how band names came about I asked Final Silence about how where there name came from and the response was a lot deeper (and albeit grimmer) than I had anticipated!
Willie informed me "The name of the band came about in two ways, one whilst watching star wars and realising the hollow silence after a persons final breath and how grim it would be, to be in the presence of a person's dying breath or more poetically their final silence"
