Biography

Over a decade ago the post hardcore genre was blazing hot. The hype blew over from the US and Canada, where Silverstein formed in 2000. For a long time, Silverstein was a prominent band on the post hardcore scene but they rarely ventured across the Atlantic. When the popularity of the genre started to wane, Silverstein started focusing more on Europe and that paid dividends. While they won’t win any innovation awards, they have stuck with and perfected their mix of emotional lyrical content, catchy choruses and brutal breakdowns. Their most recent effort ‘Dead Reflection’ (2017) offers some of their best work to date, combining their trademark sonic heaviness with accessible pop choruses. This is what a mature, crafty post hardcore band sounds like. (#GMM20)
