Played at Graspop Metal Meeting 2018





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 formula of emotional lyrical content combined with catchy choruses and brutal breakdowns. Their most recent longplayer, ‘I Am Alive in Everything I Touch’ (2015) is their third concept album and includes some of their best work. This is what a mature, crafty post hardcore band is supposed to sound like.(#GMM18)
