The best kept secret in music


"Prelude to the Black Cat"

Unlike the martyr of the confessional, ‘Saints of Silence (SOS),’, express an indomitable, diverse, compilation of sullied hard rock integrated with cultured balladry that supplies passion and resonance to their fan base.

“Stray Bullet,” the newest SOS CD, reveals this rock group as a seamless, melodious, set of musicians.

When you pick up on track 7 of the SOS Stray Bullet CD and listen to the tune “Hungry," you hear clever rock music that is performed to virtual excellence. This toxic-free SOS tune offers brawny riffs. Norr, lead vocalist, stares down his crucial contemporaries during the paroxysmal track "Bones," and Nick Burton, lead guitarist, supplies helpings of raw talent in taut slithers that he drives to the lyrics, "...devil in me, devil in you...there’s a sunray somewhere slipping through the cracks...”

Norr lashes out with coarse plunging choruses featured in the tunes "Too Late," "In Motion," and "Better Ways." Louie Otero, drummer, and Chris Fisher, bass player, maneuver the Saints through a variety of impressive techniques, while entertaining audiences as SOS transverses the gulf of house rock band to musicians on the fast track. From track 4 onward the Stray Bullet CD is remarkable. The fact that SOS offers a rock CD that you want to listen too more than once is worth your time and the investment it takes to visit them at Black Cat's Backstage (or another up-coming venue) and in purchasing their CD.

Album Review
Saints of Silence sounds like a cross between Godsmack and Nickleback – if you like this kind of music or styling, this CD is for you. The production is great, engineered by Kevin Rucker, recorded at Mother Rucker studios and mastered by Steve Write at Write Way Studios. Saints of Silence is Simon Norr, vocals and acoustic guitar; Nick Burton, Lead Guitar; Jeff Million, Drums; and Chris Fisher, Bass. Simply put, the musicians are tight and the vocals and background vocals are good. The second track, “Off Me,” sounds ‘identical’ to the first track “Numb” – is this part II? This is the consistency that you’d expect from this type of record – it works. Acoustic guitar breakdowns and introductions, coupled with Alice in Chains-styled mid-ranged vocals, deliver exactly what any Creed or 3 Doors Down fan starves for – hungry? “Hungry” sticks out as acoustic power ballad with distorted vocals. A catchy chorus helps drive the Saints of Silence’s melodic discharge down the esophagi of the alternative rock lover. “In Motion,” is one of the better tracks on the record – very hooky! This album certainly isn’t a reinvention of the rock n’ roll wheel, but it’s a good local rock CD. Saints of Silence’s “Stray Bullet” is moreover a reinvention of the mid-90’s rock sound mixed with the recent influx of modern alternative rock bands, which are plaguing rock radio. It will probably sell, if the wave doesn’t break before they get a taste.

Feeling a bit camera shy


Saints of Silence was formed in our Nation's Capitol during the fall of 2004, by front man Simon Norr and lead guitarist Nick Burton. Originally an acoustic duo, S.O.S. soon evolved into a fully dynamic acoustic/electric rock band, as Nick picked up his electric guitar and they were joined by Chris Fisher on bass and Louies Otero on drums.

Over the past two years Saints of Silence has played extensively up and down the east coast, from CBGB’s in NYC, to the Black Cat in Washington, DC. S.O.S. has received airplay locally on DC101 and Z104, as well as internationally, on the British internet based radio station AII Radio (

Recently S.O.S has caught the eye of several publishing companies, and with their help, has already begun to sell music in the States as well as overseas. The band has also been in close contact with a Nashville based record label.

With new a new EP on the way, accompanied by a sound that continues to captivate audiences, the Saints of Silence remain one of the area’s most promising local acts.
