Crossroads Broken When The Silence Cries Away Friheten Vil Seire My Screaming Heart Motherlove The Vikingsong Spirit Chase Keep Fighting Innocent Child Wings Of Hope We'll Be Free [Bonus] Broken Hearts [Bonus]. All of my fears vanished as soon as the album opener "Silence Is My Friend" started to spin and I was instantly taken over by straight, catchy and emotional atmospheric sound.
Tears Of Silence is a fourth full-lenght for Imperia and is absolutely their best work to date, it's also their most intense and versatile album. Imperia doesn't uncover anything new musicwise, they never did, neither they are experimenting that much, but what they do is to deliver a high class symphonic gothic metal which is in this case quite distinguishable.
On Tears Of Silence you'll find eleven tracks plus two in my opinion unnecessary bonuses on some editions. Most of the tracks are quite groovy and atmospheric compositions with interesting additions of folk elements and huge, sometimes bombastic orchestrations. The whole thing is quite dynamic, mostly thanks to the great vocals of Helena, who shoved this time her best perfomance ever, as she captivates and enthuses with many vocal variations, from her typical operatic soprano singing, to charming deep, tender, yet very emotional and sometimes we can hear even heavy grunts on for example the heavy hitting groover "Crossroads" and on intense "My Screaming Heart".
The instrumental side, guitar riffs, a couple of leads here and there, and the typical heavy metal rhythmic lines, that many times bring in mind 80s metal giants, are more or less simplistic, but still powerful and highly dynamic all over. Great use of keyboards adds a lot to the whole atmosphere and it makes songs quite dark, rich and full of ambiance. Even if sometimes it reminds to Nightwish , Leaves' Eyes and most of all to Doro , Imperia managed to achive some kind of a trademark sound.
Tears of Silence
There are flutes and whistles, bagpipes, bouzoukis, acoustic guitars, piano, violins and also a Russian choir on the album, that's perfectly heard in the folkish metal anthem "The Vikingsong" or in the evocative "Spirit Chase Keep Fighting ". As necessary for this kind of style Imperia doesn't forget about the catchiness and most of the melodies are truly captivating, the sound is dense and powerful all over and even if the band adds some fillers it doesn't became boring.

Most of the compositions have the necessary flow and drive, but in my opinion the best thing on this album is a masterfully executed "Innocent Child", it's a joy listening to those semi balladic elements blended so well with energetic chorus where Imperia really shines. Not only this one, also before mentioned "Crossroads", the stunning adventurous piece "Broken When The Silence Cries ", the magical "Friheten Vil Seire", vocally very strong "Wings Of Hope" and almost epic emotional semi ballad "Away", are all some of the best things in the female fronted metal sector that I've heard recently.
With Tears Of Silence Imperia did an album full of many different elements and they succeeded to implement many musical styles into one hell of a coherent and well balanced structure. Apart to some parts that can be a bit too much predictable and organic, most of the album is a fascinating fantasy for your ears. Thanks also to very good and clear production the whole thing shines even more. This is an album that should bring joy into the hearts of all lovers of female fronted metal, certainly not to be missed.
Tears of silence
Review written by: T. Their special brand of ritual dark ambient is an invocation of the highest order.
Great halls filled with worshipers and priestly hooded figures are brought to mind. Ancient structures of dilapidated stone-works surround the congregation as they chant their prayers and pound their drums. This experience is something of a meditation for the listener, giving us a channel into the depths of our own inner gods and demons.
Shibalba perform a rite which is larger than life, a worthy soundtrack for the gods as they manipulate our every movement here on Earth. Samsara is a deeply moving experience. Shibalba have obviously taken every precaution in piecing together this ritual. Read a full review HERE. I have many favourites and my favourite one is two prisons divided by a gulf.

His poetry, while not overly impressive with its use of literary devices, accurately describes the human condition in times of despair, hope, apathy, and compassion. Much of his poetry recites values, virtues and vices narrated through encounters with I personally consider Vanier's book, Becoming Human, one of the greatest, life changing books I have read.
Much of his poetry recites values, virtues and vices narrated through encounters with others, of which Vanier's quintessential insight is our obligation and need for compassion on others in need in order to liberate ourselves from the prisons our of own weakness and apathy. What cannot be forgotten or neglected is Vanier's strong faith.
Why do we have an obligation to those that are unnecessary to us?

Why affirm something so unproductive as our "common humanity"? Why have hope for a better tomorrow despite the limits of today?
Tears of Silence
Why bother having empathy for others when we cannot fix them? These questions beg religious explanations that exceed empirical descriptions. It is because Vanier confesses to follow the crucified God and to be lead by his Spirit. Jul 16, EunSung rated it it was amazing. Beautiful book of poetry and pictures.
It does what radical writing fails to do when describing the alienation of our society, it reaches the heart. May 26, Deborah-Ruth rated it it was amazing. A book of poetry looking at the meaning of the word "community. The pictures are a bit old, but the text is timeless. Stunning and of utmost importance in this or any age. Touching pictures, too.
