The best kept secret in music


ROCK’S CHILDREN: Run Silent Run Deep is among the many bands under the influence of the rock antiheroes Fugazi and Slint: these slightly moody, slightly angry lads turn down Fugazi’s noise-=rage and update Slint’s smart song structure - Choire Sicha

Also playing that night was local rock act Run Silent, Run Deep. This band provided a pleasant surprise with their level of proficiency, boasting excellent players all around and generally playing like they were listening to each other…Run Silent, Run Deep mined a sorta Slint-like territory, with a set made up of long, epic compositions with lots of atmospheric, arpeggiated movements, but don't think it ends there. They like to bring the hammers down, too, and none of their 10-minute crowd-pleasers were complete without at least one Sabbath-inspired riff-fest. - Greg Ceton

It kicks off with great energy. I was immediately inclined to tap my toes and bob my head. The guitar has a real rolling, rollicking quality while the bass thumped and bumped me into a great mood. It then slows down into a more introspective jaunt that brought to mind Nada Surf's first album. The tempo changes are a big plus, catching me in the ebb and flow, the rising tide of sound. - South of Mainstream

Overall this is an honest, thoughtful and intelligent album created by musicians and vocalists possessed of vast talent and an inspired wisdom and creativity. It's a disc that will stay in my "play often" rotation for some time to come. - South of Mainstream

Feeling a bit camera shy


After 3 years, 3 albums, and nearly 100 shows, Run Silent Run Deep has played from Richmond to New York City at such venues as The Mercury Lounge, CBGB’s, The Khyber, and the Black Cat. They have been written about in publications such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Washington City Paper. Their songs can be heard on XM Radio, George Washington University radio, and the University of Maryland radio.
The Washington, D.C. based band began in January 2003 after its first album was made. Singer/songwriter Thomas Schantz decided he would take a backwards approach to forming a band. He relied on the Internet and newspaper ads to recruit musicians for the album, and ended up with two drummers, two bassists, and a second guitarist. The result was an LP called “Season of Fire” with 8 songs, each different from the next.
As they were wrapping up in the studio, Thomas recruited one of the bassists, Julie Rozansky, to start what was to become Run Silent Run Deep. After several lineup changes, Thomas and Julie found Texas native Ashraf Younes on drums, and Fred Ferenzhalmy from Mississippi on guitar.
The band’s latest album, “These Are My Iron Teeth,” reflects how the band’s sound and members have evolved. The album title was taken from a line in their song “Baba Yaga” which was inspired by the Russian Fairy Tale of the same name. The album proves to be their most dynamic yet.
