With a mix of hardcore, down-tempo and deathcore Silent on Fifth Street came as a real sleeper to me during the end of 2016. I didn’t really have the time to look into them until now and I am sure a lot of you out there did miss Silent on Fifth Street’s full-length Embodied Cognition due to all the album of the year awards, Christmas and all that happening.
The riffs are tight, the vocals got a wide range of different styles which makes it less monotone. The overall style from track to track also changes, some being more hardcore, some leaning more towards down-tempo and deathcore. Listening to Better off Dead, Gemini and Level 5 Doom, three tracks right after each other, on the album you get a different feel to the bands style of music. I think that’s a strongpoint from Silent on Fifth Street and something they should keep on doing. Even if I personally don’t like all songs (Level 5 Doom) but enjoy others much more (Gemini) I respect them for doing it.
In case you haven’t heard this album yet then be sure to do so. I found it interesting with a lot of different approaches and I am sure you will find at least one song on the album that will get stuck inside your head.
