MEMFIS Release Tiny Progressive Metal Masterpiece In The Form Of Silva

Posted by on April 18, 2013 at 4:22 pm

You're about to get learned on Memfis, one of the coolest progressive metal bands that Sweden has to offer. What you need to know right now is that their new Silva EP is amazing.

Go ahead and not only stream Memfis' new EP right here, but pay what you want for it as well! Silva follows up the band's 2011 progressive powerhouse of an album Vertigo (also available on their site), but takes their sound to an entirely new level of heavy. While Vertigo relied just as much on hooks as Silva does, Vertigo had a much more "rock and roll"-type feel to it with some very progressive tendencies. Silva says bollocks to that idea and just goes for the jugular non-stop. The one constant between the album is the reliance on old-school sounding keyboards, clean vocal passages, and extremely fitting cleaner-esque sections. I might be making it sound more disjointed than it really is, but the band know damn well how to take a bunch of sick riffs and rhythms and throw them all into a song without sounding dumb. Silva will twist your head right off if you're not prepared for it, then sew it back on and twist it right the hell off again because it's vicious as all get out. Why are you still reading this? You should be on their page picking up their albums right now! Go as if your whole day is contingent on enjoying this album… because it just might be!
