ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What others have to say...
"Modesto, California's own Better Left Unsaid are one of those bands that, despite being unsigned, sound twice as good as half the bands out there right now that actually have a record deal. Their self-released full length, 'The Silencing', is an album that is simply chock full of quality Metal and some well-accomplished musicianship." Anthony | Loudside.com

"Opening with the thunderous "Never Again" with its melodic chorus and true metal in between, this is a formula that works incredibly well for this band throughout this release. Next up is "Repletion," which is even heavier with more growl to the vocals, heavy breakdowns and an infectious chorus that stayed in my head for hours. This is definitely my favorite track off the album and would make a fantastic single with all its dynamic changes and overall heaviness blended with melody. Other standout tracks include the brutal "Sweets" and the furious tirade of "Impurity" with its monster chorus. Closing the album is "Cold Inside" with its raunchy guitars and epic feel, making it a perfect ending to what I think is an incredible independent release..." Robin Steeley | Crave Magazine

"A highlight of The Silencing is the final track, “Cold Inside,” which has single potential and just enough commercial appeal to translate into radio play and album sales. With a chorus that features a slower tempo than the rest of the song, listeners will instantly be reminded of past Metal anthems. “Epic” is the only appropriate word to describe “Cold Inside.” " Allyson B. Crawford | Metalexpressradio.com

BRAD Kentucky FT. Lauderdale WITT

VERY HEAVY ! ! GOOD SHIT ! !

Brad at CD Baby


This album starts innocently enough. There's a build, a curdled intonation that suddenly blasts into a full bore wrenching, and then it begins. This modern metal five piece from Modesto, CA does not waste any space on this album, shuttling through seven tracks of harsh but welcoming rock that is as angry as it is calculated. The forcefulness of the verses is balanced out by choruses that are melodic but never sappy, catchy but never undermining the intention of the track. The duo of guitars are effective in unison, but when they break off in separate directions, the sound opens up and really takes shape. Just when you think they're digging in, preparing to ride a riff from beginning to end, the song will break down, with each member shifting in unison to force the groove in an unforeseen direction that ultimately works. This is metal with brains, featuring songs that are effective whether they're pressing heavy with full force or reeling back, waiting for the next explosion.

Shit....fuckin amazing...
This is just awesome...blending a shitload of different styles into a delicious casserole of metal. It's something really big to make a CD that has someone saying they like the WHOLE album. I hear the industrial at the beginning of the album, then they add the hardcore metal and screamo. A guitar style similar to Avenged Sevenfold, and vocals I cannot compare. The drums remind me of Cradle of Filth, yet at the same time it's very original.

This is an awesome CD that will never get boring because it displays the differe
This is an awesome CD that will never get boring because it displays the different varieties of MeTaL! You get some of that Death metal as well as empowering melodies, but still has some of that hard to find underground sound and feel! Awesome band all around! They are also one of the few bands around that actually care about their fans! Awesome stage performance as well!!!
