The album starts out with sound effects before adding in symphonic keyboards which also leads up to a heavier direction as well as bringing in melodic guitar leads and violins and after the intro the music goes into a symphonic metal direction along with prog elements and melodic female vocals and death metal growls and black metal screams.
When the album goes into other songs the band continue their symphonic and gothic approach to progressive metal while also having some of the heaviness of black, death and doom metal as well as mixture of clean and heavy parts and at time s they also bring in small amount of spoken word parts and on some of the tracks they bring in a small amount of blast beats and after awhile they bring in a couple of depressive sounding ballads as well as bringing in some acoustic guitars before making a return to a more heavier direction.
With this album Silent opera show a great amount of diversity with their music with the way they mix symphonic and gothic music with progressive metal as well as bringing in death and black metal vocals to create an album that is very dark and melodic while also being very heavy at times.
Song lyrics cover dark, depressive and poetic themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording as well as some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Silent Opera are a very great sounding melodic symphonic progressive metal band with element s of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band and album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nightmare Circus" "Fight Or Drift" and "Sailor Siren And bitterness". 8 out of 10.
