Short bio

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.
