Artificial Silence – Negative Space Song Review – Metalhead Community

Today we are featuring another promising progressive rock band; Artificial Silence, from Washington, the USA. We have reviewed their interesting song; Negative Space, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.

Artificial Silence is another important name, an impressive progressive rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this very song; Negative Space, off from their latest full-length release; Negative Space, which was released on 2018. Artificial Silence is one of those brilliant bands who are making and offering this amazing music to the world thanks to Dream Theater. Their music has influenced thousands of musicians from all around the world. This band has so many things in common with Dream Theater’s understanding of music yet they have successfully managed to reflect their own character to their music as well. Fantastic job, truly.

Negative Space is a wonderful track which will easily satisfy any prog rock lover with its story, ideas, energy, mood, sound quality, creativity, and with its advanced musicianship. Most of the time bands like them with strong influences aren’t able to show this level of creativity and authenticity in their own music. This is one of the things among many others that make Artificial Silence very special, in my opinion.

There are many complicated and non-standard ideas and elements in the composition. The song begins with a heavenly sounding acoustic intro and evolves into many things along the way. They are simply showing huge potential on this song. Hands down. What I liked the most about it was its amazing sound, balance, and the story. I not sure if anyone’s gonna agree with me on this but, in my opinion, this song has creatively much more to offer than some songs on Dream Theater’s last album; Distance Over Time.

Technically, Negative Space has exceptional standards as well. Everything sounds super clean, clear, natural, very well balanced, engineered, mixed, mastered, and also in great harmony. This is one of the best sounding progressive rock songs I have heard for a long time. The energy is wonderful all along the way that immediately pulls the listener into its world. Every single change of the mood in the composition means something just like we all face in our lives. The atmosphere is there all the time and together with the rich instrumentation, Artificial Silence has managed to create this vast sound. So when I take all these into account, I can say that I am well impressed by Artificial Silence and their potentials. They have everything they need to get themselves to the top level in the progressive rock sphere. All they have to do is to continue making music and maintain their standards!

Negative Space has earned its place in Metalhead Community’s Top Rock Songs Playlist on Spotify.
