Tishina – Uvod…

by Dave "That Metal Guy" Campbell at 25 May 2022, 6:26 AM

TISHINA (Тишина) is best described as a Melodic Doom/Death Metal project which was initially born as a side-project to explore slower, deeper and more emotional side of music. The inspiration for the first album, “Uvod…” ('Увод…') came mainly from the book of poems 'Nad Vodama Aheronta', written by Serbian author Predrag Rava. The album contains five tracks.

“Iz Mrtvog Ugla \[Из Мртвог Угла]” leads off the album. Slow, steady lead guitar tones open the album, with a very heavy rhythm section. The vocals are quite guttural, and the mood is very depressing. “Dve Crne Ruze \[Две Црне Руже]” begins with a little faster-moving riff and some nice harmonies from the lead guitars. The opening bass work is excellent. Doomy elements rain down on your head while the eerie lead guitar work provides texture. “Uteha \[Утеха]” is a very short acoustical interlude, with pretty but somber tones, meant to connect the two parts of the album into four songs.

“Jutro Poslednjeg Dana \[Јутро Последњег Дана]” begins with a heavy and powerful riff and some lead guitar harmonies. The vocals paint a very bleak picture of life…one that you would not want to stare down for too long. Some melodic tones break through like a ray of light into storm clouds, but they do not last long. “Zauvek \[Заувек]” closes the album. More melodic lead guitars open the song, with melancholy rhythms. Again, the bass work is fantastic in the song. The song runs through both light and dark passages along the eight-minute journey.

Overall, this was a solid listen. The Doomy elements outweigh the melodic ones, but there are enough to keep it interesting. Like a slow burn, it seeps into your body without you realizing it, until you are consumed with pain.
