Are you sitting comfortably? Then let’s begin. Run your unsuspecting self into the crippling embrace of Boston post-hardcore outfit Ice Nine Kills and their new album The Silver Scream.
Horror and metal dance hand in hand in their fifth studio album and depending on how twisted you are, you’ll either be left wanting to run for your life as you’re scared stupid by the unpredictable twists and turns in the electrifying guitars, haunting toy box noises and colossal screams, or you’ll want to crawl closer into the gnarly bosom of Ice Nine Kills, captivated by their theatrics as they fill the darkest crevices of your soul.
Ice Nine Kills extend a bony arm and take you gently by the hand, only to force you into an extreme adventure of bloody nightmares, volatile vocals and reimagined stories.
That’s what this album does to you. Each song pays homage to a cinematic horror great and Ice Nine Kills have spared no expense in their creative reimagining through sound of classic films like A Nightmare On Elm Street, showcased in the video for The American Nightmare, The World In My Hands, inspired by Tim Burton’s classic Edward Scissorhands, and the bewitching track Love Bites, inspired by An American Werewolf In London. The Silver Scream sees Ice Nine Kills increase their concern with the cinematic aspects of their music, creating exhilarating heavy metal like nobody else can.
They soar seemingly effortless with multi-textured hooks, captivating tunes and intricate orchestral melodies, a recipe of textures that create a simply divine visual experience as you’re trapped inside the nightmarish side of your own mind.
Ice Nine Kills extend a bony arm and take you gently by the hand, only to force you into an extreme adventure of bloody nightmares, volatile vocals and reimagined stories. Step into The Silver Scream house of horrors but know that in doing so, you will never be the same!
