“Aesthetic Illusion” is the debut album from The Loudest Silence, the symphonic metal band from Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It was released on 7th July via TLS / Spinnup; although there was an earlier release via Nuclear Blast on 1st June. Symphonic metal is one of those genres that can be hit or miss for me personally, but “Aesthetic Illusion” comes out on the ‘hit’ side. The track "The Loudest Silence" will be featured on the Friday NI Rocks Show this week – 20th July.





The Loudest Silence formed in Sarajevo in 2010 and in 2015 represented their country at the Wacken Open Air Festival. That same year saw the release of the track “The Nymph” which features on this album. The band describe the album as “partly a concept album, because most of the songs are about the immortality of ideas, dreams, art and love, even if society often does not approve or condemn them. The message of the album is to believe in yourself, no matter what happens, and to follow your dreams and ideas”.

The Loudest Silence are Taida Nazraić on vocals, Denijal Ćatović on keyboards & orchestration, Mirza Ćorić on guitars, Džemal Bijedić on bass guitar & backing vocals and Damir Sinanović Bumbar on drums.

There are a number of guest appearances on the album. Most notably from Mark Jansen of Epica on the twelve-minute epic “Gallery of Wonders”. That track also features additional guitars plus flute and violin.

About “NI Rocks Recommends”

The simple idea behind “NI Rocks Recommends” is to acknowledge and promote some of the great music being submitted to Rock Radio NI. The albums that I’ll be recommending are those that you’ll hear me playing tracks from on my shows. I'll not be giving marks or ratings or analyzing the tracks in great detail; just telling you something about the artist and the album. It’s a personal recommendation to go check something out, not a traditional “review”!
