"SILENCER - Divisions"

There's little old-school about the sort of thrash offered up by this decade-old American crew. The Silencer approach is a full-on mix of Haunted/Municipal Waste-style metal, with the occasional hint of metalcore thrown into the mix. This second album hums with force and power, driven by the guitar mania of Dan Lynn and Keith Spargo, and topped off by the ripping , rippling vocals of Chad Armstrong. However, there's an intelligent beat beneath all the mayhem. Silencer have learnt the cunning art of writing songs with a purpose, meshing melody with the grit. While Anticreation gets the campaign off to a pulsating start, Betrayal and Massacre: An Overture to Germania and Shiftkill offer a little more sturdy subtlety amidst the grind. There's still life in thrash. - Malcolm Dome - Metal Hammer

In 2005, Silencer made the transition from thrash / traditional metal to a more modern sound, pulling European influences while retaining a distinct American flavor. After changing record labels, Silencer released "Divisions" in 2009, which carried a more open, melodic approach to songwriting. The band have toured the southwest and midwest extensively.

Silencer draw influence from Darkane, early Soilwork, Carnal Forge, Mnemic, Devin Townsend, Nevermore, early Soilwork, and several other acts.

In September 2009, the band started writing for the next record.
