EDITORS’ NOTES

Not content with typical Christian metalcore pieties, Silent Planet turn The Night God Slept into a challenging spiritual meditation on mankind’s fall and ultimate redemption. From songs about the exploitation of women (“XX [City Grave]”) to the horrors of Nazi Germany (“Tiny Hands [Au Revoir]”) and Hiroshima (“Darkstrand [Hibakusha]”), raw-throated vocalist Garrett Russell and his bandmates don’t flinch at confronting the bleak side of humanity while searching for healing and grace. Jazz, classical, and ambient touches temper SP’s aggressive attack, lending a cinematic grandeur to harsh yet hopeful tracks like “Depths II.”
