vatsisg An eclectic mix of crunchy guitar, smooth singing and even some violin. Subtle, melancholy lyrics that often end with a twist. Seem like this band broke up, but hope they reunite for another album in the future.

Josh Awesome and catchy mix of melody, metal, and lyricism. I usually prefer instrumentals, but the vocals here work really well. Would love to hear another album from In the Silence in the future. Thanks for your music, please make more!

Josh Proggy without being musician wankfest. Calming while having a heaviness to it. Favorite track: Endless Sea.

In the Silence first began in 2007 as the brainchild of Sacramento guitarist Josh Burke, with the goal of writing music that would be atmospheric, melodic and progressive, with heavy, dark guitars and drums and an overall epic, emotional arc.

A Fair Dream Gone Mad is melancholic metal cut from a similar cloth to Katatonia and Opeth. Josh Burke sings in a clean and expressive style in contrast to the crushing guitar riffs that take ITS’s music much further into the metal realms than bands they are compared to like Porcupine Tree and Riverside. A mesmerizing and emotional debut filled with tension.
