Greetings Stavros, how things are going?
Hello Carla, things are going pretty well actually. We just finished the mastering of our upcoming debut album and we are already in contact with some labels to figure out a release plan. The feedback we received from the listening session was amazing!

When was The Silent Rage founded?
The band’s first line-up was created back in 2006.

You have released 2 EP’s until now, what can you tell me about them?
The self titled EP (2009) was the band’s introduction to the world, if we may say. It was actually the first solid line-up and it felt right to have this release. Since then a lot of changes took over, not only in the formation of the band but in our sound, too. So, on 2011 we thought that it was a good time to re-introduce the band and its evolution with our 2nd EP ‘Harvester Of Souls’, released the same day with our opening to the co-headline show of Rage and Grave Digger in Athens! For me this was the connecting link of the band’s early days to our new, more aggressive sound. Both releases received exceptionally good feedback by press and fans alike! This, (along with Nikos’ vision for the band) was what kept up alive despite the many difficulties and barriers we encountered.
