April 19 – ANGEL MARTYR – NOTHING LOUDER THAN SILENCE (Iron Shield Records / Soulfood Music) – Review by Officer NIce

Since I live alone I can admit that silence is sometimes loud… But… but, my love for music became even more intense, although I can’t describe how passionate I was already living with music in my life before. It touches my soul, clears my head and often shows me the right path in what I am doing. Anyway, the title of the new Angel Martyr album is awesome and the reason to be a bit personal about myself.

This is the second album of these Italians and actually my first meeting with the band. That’s a pity because I discovered a cool formation.
