The Silent Wedding
The Silent Wedding is a heavy metal band, formed in 2008 by releasing their first self-titled EP, with the reviewers describing The Silent Wedding as a “Heavy Metal band with Prog & Power influences”. Their first full length album “Livin Experiments” was released in 2013, mastered by Michael “Miro” Rodenberg (Kamelot, Edguy, Rhapsody etc.) at Gate Studios (De). For the album’s artwork, the band worked with Travis Smith (Nevermore, Iced Earth, Opeth etc).
Meanwhile, the band keeps promoting its work through live shows around Greece & Europe in metal festivals, sharing the stage with bands like Saxon, Fates Warning, Firewind, Tygers of Pan Tang, Maiden United, Caravan, Lizzy Borden and many more. The Silent Wedding supported Maiden United in two mini-tours in the Netherlands & Belgium, joined Voodoo Six in their European mini-tour in 2014 and supported Threshold in their “European Journey” Tour for 19 shows around Europe.
In March 2017 the band released “Enigma Eternal”, an album that received remarkable feedback, from fans and press, featuring guest vocals by Tom S. Englund, vocalist of the mighty Evergrey. The artwork was once again a creation of Travis Smith inspired by the album’s ominous concept. “The vibe of Kamelot and the artistic approach of Evergrey combined with a reminiscence of Savatage! Impressive album!” (Metal Hammer – 9/10) Many successful shows followed, with the band sharing the stage with Iced Earth, Epica, Annihilator, touring over Europe once more with the UK progsters Threshold.
The band entered the studio in 2020 and started working on new material and completed the recordings of their new album entitled Ego Path in 2021.
