ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Silent Nightmare, an opera metal band from Chicago, combines hauntingly beautiful vocals, powerful drums and heavy guitar work to create a unique and seductive fusion of musical styles. The diverse 4-piece band draws influences from many European metal groups such as Within Temptation and Nightwish.

Band History:
Hailing out of Chicago, IL, Silent Nightmare is unique in that we had a CD before we had a fully completed band. The origins of the group were with the lead vocalist, Tara Duhan and drummer, Tim Araujo who formed the band in January of 2010. The original songs written for this CD were composed by Tara several years earlier, and were still in their beginning stages of recording when the band officially formed. Most of the rest of 2010 was spent in completing the arrangement and recording of the songs for Awakening, as well as seeking out guitarists to join the two-piece band. Several guitarists auditioned, but it was not until October of 2010 that we found the perfect lead guitarist in Aleks Jevtic. The Winter and Spring brought about many rehearsals, a photo session, and the release of our first CD at the end of April, followed soon after by the addition of our final member. In April, 2011, we found our up to that point elusive bass guitarist in Sonja Jevtic, Aleks's wife. We were finally a full band, just in time for our first performance at a convention in Troy, MI the last weekend of April, 2011. Silent Nightmare is now currently performing in and around the Chicagoland area, and hopes to use this next year to get as much stage time as possible and continue work on their first full length album.

Style of Music:
While the genre of Metal Opera has been popular in Europe for years through such bands as Nightwish, Within Temptation, and Epica, it has never really been represented by U.S. based bands. Silent Nightmare would like to remedy this situation. Our style is that of soaring ballads and operatic vocals, pitted against classic heavy metal guitars and drums. This duality leads to a fantastic blending of sounds and form, and will be a completely new experience for most people in this country.
