Silent Descent are a seven-piece trance metal band from Dartford, England. Combining metal with trance and synth, they are viewed by many as an innovative band. Their sound can be described as a mixture of melodic death metal and trance music. In 2007 the band entered the Radio global unsigned band awards, winning the "Symphonic rock or Metal" category, and selected by Judges to receive the "Supreme Silver" award (4th overall in the contest). The following year the band won the Kerrang!/MCN Unsigned Live competition . In August 2008, Silent Descent were featured in metal and alternative music magazine Metal Hammer who proclaimed them "...the trance metal juggernaught the world has been waiting for." In September 2009 Silent Descent sold out the Camden Underworld along with Alestorm. The band performed at the Bloodstock Open Air music festival on 17 August 2008 and headlined Thursday night's Boardie Takeover at Download festival in 2009 and 2010. Silent Descent have released two examples of new music, Psychotic Euphoric and Bring-In-Sanity. Their second full-length album, titled "Mind Games", is due for release in 2012.
