Today is a very special day for us. It marks five years since that Black Monday of 2018, where 103 people lost their lives during the summer wildfires in Mati, Attica, Greece. Therefore, we decided to pay our tribute to those people and we dedicated this song in loving memory of them. This is our fourth single and third video taken from the new album “Nuances of Life” released in May through Scarlet Records. You can watch it below.

You can also watch the cover art of the single, made by Nikos Siglidis, below.

You order it through our official store.

“It is by far the most personal track I ever wrote as a lyricist. Five years ago, on July 23rd of 2018 during the summer wildfires in Mati, Attica, Greece 103 people lost their lives and this track is dedicated in loving memory of them. This was one of the biggest disasters that I ever experienced in my life so far and it really affected me as a person and as a human being. You never know what’s going to happen the very next moment, so to me you have to live it like it’s going to be the very last one. I am really thankful that in this track Nikos Sarbanis and Michalis Rinakakis delivered such beautiful melodies that helped embrace my vision about it. It is a way that we mourn together with those families and pay the ultimate tribute to the lost ones. It’s also the track that Bob Katsionis (Stray Gods, ex-Firewind) is taking part in by performing his characteristic performance on keyboards, for which I can’t be thankful enough, since it has given a special tone in the whole track. Of course, one major element is the singing of Michalis in this track, who really got himself into the whole atmosphere and gave a proper feeling of the mourn the song describes. Another fact is that when time came to record my solo part, I was really touched by the passing of a person that had died a few weeks earlier and had a huge impact in my life. Performing my solo part in this song was meant to be another small tribute to a guitar player and a band that I really miss. This man was Miika Tenkula (RIP 1974-2009) and his band was Sentenced”, Nikos Siglidis comments.

“This song was one of the most emotional songs that I had to compose the music for. Nikos Siglidis was very concerned about this tragic fire accident and he decided to make a dedicated song. Later, he told me to write some music for these lyrics, and immediately took the guitar and started composing. By the way, this was a very emotional moment for me as well, as I was about to lose my hometown’s house because of a devastating fire accident in 2015. Even Though I was very furious about these accidents (which were human-made accidents in order to make profit from new buildings, wind turbines etc), I had to write tones for a ballad. About the solo, I wrote a Pink Floyd style crunchy – mellow solo. It is a huge inspiration for me and I wanted not to try to make something impressive, in terms of technique, but something more melodic and atmospheric”, adds Nikos Sarbanis.

At this very moment we would like to take a minute and thank Nikos Palaiologos of SOOC Photo Agency for the letting us use images from that day in our tribute, lyric video. We can’t thank you enough! Also, Stefano Mastronicola for working together with us a second time and doing a tremendous job with the video. Kudos to you, our friend!

Those wildfires devasted Greece and every year since then, wildfires happens again every year. We are living in a never-ending circle that cannot break. Even now, the state of Attica where 4 out of 5 members of the band live, is burning again. Thousands of acres of forests and wildlife turning to ashes, giving no sign of hope for the future. Our only hope is that there will be no more loss of human life to be mourned, no more wildlife to be lost, no more burning soil.

With honor,
The Silent Rage

The Silent Rage has released a lyric-video for ‘Another Fallen Dreamland’ featuring Stu Block (Into Eternity & ex Iced Earth), third single and second video taken from the new album ‘Nuances of Life’ to be released on May 26th through Scarlet Records. You can watch it below.

You can also watch the cover art of the single, made by Giannis Nakos of Remedy Art Design, below.

You can pre-save the album here and pre-order it through our official store.

“The funny story behind “Another Fallen Dreamland” is that during the pre-production I had made up my mind to set up this song as a bonus track. And that was because it was a song that I originally composed back in the early days of the band but it never managed to be released. Therefore, I always thought that the only way for it to be released was as a bonus track. But before we even started recording it, the rest of the guys in the band really seemed to love it and they convinced me somehow to include it on the main tracklist, haha! As a track to me, it was a straight power metal crusher of the golden era of the genre, getting my mind into acts like Edguy, Stratovarius, Brainstorm etc. ”

“What I really wanted, was to boost this song even more with the addition of a guest vocalist, like the way we did on our first album, “The Deadliest Scourge”with the song “Sin Of A Pilgrim” with Apollo Papathanasio (Spiritual Beggars, ex-Firewind) featured there. We asked a few singers to see if they were interested and we managed to make the call and finalise the participation of Stu Block (Into Eternity, ex-Iced Earth), a singer whom I really love and enjoy listening to. I definitely believe that the duet here made a massive hit performance, making it a massive head banging tune! But what I also over-enjoy in this track are Stamatis Katsafados pounding drumming and the solos on it”, comments Nikos Siglidis. 

“My idea here was to have Stu Block and me, be the inner voices of the realisation of truth in someone’s head, anyone that has been brainwashed or manipulated by people in power, by organisations, by standards of society, by people of influence making that person chase after dreams that are not their own, constantly trying to reach a status or an image or something that is only an unattainable construct, instead of simply following their own thoughts and dreams in life”, Michalis Rinakakis adds.


After the great success that our single/video clip “The Serpent Lord” had (you can check it out here), we are more delighted to share with you all our newest audio single for “Exhaling Fear”. You can listen to it here.

“This is one of the two songs that I haven’t participated in at all, nor by composing a part in the music or even writing any of the lyrics. It’s a total effort by Michalis Rinakakis and Nikos Sarbanis. But all I can say is, it’s a pure metal anthem and that’s why we picked it as a second single for this album. I must admit that it reveals the songwriting skills of Nikos, which brings to the music of The Silent Rage, a new aspect for the future albums. He’s more into the American metal scene and it makes sense I must say. To me the song both in music as well as in the vocal lines reminds me of the best moments of Nevermore and Sanctuary, especially with the first ones that I really miss being around delivering brilliant albums. I am pretty sure that it will be one of the songs that will definitely be picked up by many fans and listeners as their favorite moment in the album. At least it’s one of mine!” says Nikos Siglidis.

“I am not into writing lyrics at all, but I try to imagine some song titles in order to help the person who will write the lyrics. After I made this title, Michalis made some awesome lyrics. Because of the instability and insecurity in the society we live, you can see this way of “Exhaling Fear” in the faces of people. There is a way of concern and fear for the next day, and somehow I tried to express it in a song title and in melodies as well. This way of expression happened effortlessly as I had the concept in my mind. Furthermore, the most important part is that the result of this song, along with Michalis Rinakakis’ lyrics, suited perfectly with the artistic style of the band”, Nikos Sarbanis comments.

“As soon as I heard Nikos Sarbanis’ music and saw the title, I knew what the lyrics had to be about! Even though we never really discussed the meaning of the title with Nikos Sarbanis, we ended up thinking about the same thing. The uncertainties, the insecurities, the instabilities that can drive people mad, angry, their personal terrors burning inside, leading them to doing or saying things they’ll probably regret, while all they are actually doing is simply “Exhaling Fear””, Michalis Rinakakis comments.

Along with the announcement for the new single, we are more than excited to announce that we are going to be the opening act band for the upcoming Kamelot show in Athens, Greece on Sunday 7th of May, 2023. See you all at Fuzz Club. You can also check the official event here for further details.

Another single is coming really soon! Onwards!


Our brand new video clip/single for the track “The Serpent Lord”, taken from the new album “Nuances Of Life”, which will be released on May 26th through Scarlet Records, is out now! You can watch it below.

Directed by Bob Katsionis of Progressive Vision Group

“The Serpent Lord” is the opening track of the new album, “Nuances Of Life”, and one of the very first being composed for the album, if I remember correctly” guitarist/founder Nikos Siglidis recalls. “Musically inspired by bands like Iced Earth, Judas Priest and Amon Amarth, it combines all the elements that are characteristic to each band. The main riffing is a straight Iced Earth influence from the “Something Wicked This Way Comes” era of the band, the chorus is a straight influence of Amon Amarth mostly influenced from the “Twilight Of The Thunder God” era while the bridges are more into Judas Priest classic elements. The vocal lines on the other hand, are a mixture between Iced Earth and Judas Priest as they are some of Michalis Rinakakis’ earliest vocal influences. Lyrically wise, the whole inspiration comes from the Egyptian Mythology, but as a part of a fiction character. Me and Michalis Rinakakis worked on the lyrics”, Nikos Siglidis comments. “The solo part was an approach to the Egyptian concept combined with small tastes of bluesy licks. This solo was the first one that I recorded and composed for the band, and I tried to match it to the rest of the track as much as I could”, adds Nikos Sarbanis. “Even though the main premise of this song was based on Egyptian Mythology, the lyrics ended up having numerous meanings! The eternal battle between good and evil, the ongoing search for deliverance, the never-ending seeking of meaning and hope, the yearning for balance – the list goes on and on… I am often writing lyrics with a few layers in them so that each listener can have their own ideas of what the actual meaning can be to them”, adds Michalis Rinakakis. “This is also the first song that introduces The Legionnaires Choir Ensemble, which is basically a gathering of people singing chorus gang vocals, an idea that came from Michalis Rinakakis. A brand new element for us and it is here to stay!”, adds Nikos Siglidis.
