"Climb A Mountain And Tell No One"  - EP, 2017
"Hypoxic Affairs" - Single, 2019



Hailing from the heart of Los Angeles, progressive metal band Quietude blends technical rhythms with high-intensity performance, piercing growls with soaring melodies, and emotional lyrics with a more modern "djent" framework. Quietude is the brainchild of guitarist Sid Jones, who wasted no time recruiting vocalist Takuro Shibata to join the project. The two combined their talents to release an EP in early 2017, entitled "Climb A Mountain And Tell No One." As the title of the EP suggests, the songs describe both the goal to achieve without seeking external affirmation, as well as the knowledge that we cannot know what metaphorical mountains or obstacles those close to us are struggling to climb. Though the cast of musicians supporting Jones and Shibata often varied, the band's determination did not, as Quietude consistently played shows at landmark Southern California venues such as Chain Reaction, Glass House, and Malone's, building a reputation as one of the area's superior supporting acts in the process. In 2019, Quietude fully fleshed out its lineup by adding drummer Trent Tanzi and bassist Mondo Villegas to its ranks. The band released a single and video for its song "Hypoxic Affairs," and is putting the finishing touches on its sophomore EP. With a full calendar of shows booked to round out the year, Quietude is poised to divert from its namesake and make some noise in the metal scene.
