„The Terror“ is an dark and epic tribute to the tragic events of the unfortunate Franklin expedition, inspired both by the historic events and the literary and cinematic adoptions.
Hoping to discover the legendary Northwest Passage, two ships, the HMS Erebus and the HMS Terror headed north towards the Canadian Arctic in 1845.
In total 134 men stepped aboard the two ships, being reduced to 129 even before having reached the polar ice.
None of the remaining men, searching desperately for a way to pass the ice, should ever been seen alive again.
The lyric video has been created by the wonderful, talented Olga Kann! https://www.facebook.com/olgakannartist/

With „The Terror“ Utter Silence release their first studio album with two athmospheric anthems about great expectations, broken hope and deep despair.
The title track „The Terror“ is an adventurous journey into the Arctic, following in the footsteps of the tragic Franklin expedition that began in 1845 and ended with the loss of 129 souls after trying to find the fabled Northwest Passage. Feel the cold of the eternal ice and the desperation of these brave men.
„Across the Astral Sea“ is a transcendent journey into the depths of one's psyche, experiencing the inherent darkness as part of one's identity, overcoming fear, and ultimately accepting one's mortality as part of one's existence.
Morbid melodies, gloomy atmosphere and contrasting bright moments that only give the darkness more power:
The project Utter Silence was launched in early 2016 with the aim of composing atmospheric, melodic death metal with doom – elements, expressing melancholy and dynamics in equal measure.
The atmospheric death-doom was from then on the common battlefield for elements of various metal styles. The result is a multifaceted melange, as multifaceted as life itself. Anger, longing, hope and despair are the feelings that prevail in Utter Silence. In keeping with this credo, the lyrics plumb the depths of humanity, bringing out the dark sides behind the beautiful facades and dripping with wicked cynicism.
Together, music and lyrics generate a pitch-black mood – uncompromising and unyielding.
After Utter Silence was founded in 2016 as a two-man-project by Ron Szameitpreuss and Hagen Thiele, a 6-piece band has emerged after several line-up changes, which jointly reworks and reinterprets the previously written material.
In the constellation as a band, work on the first two, reworked songs could be completed in February 2022, with the aim of releasing them as an EP.
