Set in Silence - _Watch the Sky Burn_
by: Adam Lineker (4.5 out of 5)
Interchanging eerie melody with brutal riffage, Set in Silence show potential from the word go. With guttural, howling vocals claiming dominion over the dark and brooding music, Set in Silence sound convincingly forceful. Aided by a solid production that is well above average for demo standards, _Watch the Sky Burn_ yields some progressive riff structuring with aspects of metallic groove alongside some harmonies that would be easily suited to black metal. There is a fair amount of feeling and ambience to this that allows the audience to be drawn in quite easily and it is all performed with guts and conviction. The music on _Watch the Sky Burn_ lends itself well to its mid tempo nature and very rarely becomes a dirge, with the only real inequities of this sort appearing on the closing title track. Overall, the music is well crafted and well executed; recorded evidence of the capabilities of Set in Silence. _Watch the Sky Bun_ is a strong demo and a fine achievement.
