"No matter the genre, melancholy is beautiful. Somewhere on my old hard drive I have playlists full of the saddest songs I could find. Everything from radio hits to underground noise. Ironically it brings me joy. Perhaps because I realize I am not alone and there is a world of people out there who feel the same to some degree".
From Anders Jacobsson:
I am so proud of my dear friend Riina Rinkinen and Gothic metal veterans Silentium to finally have re-arisen. It's been a slow process but I've had the fortune to listen in on some pre-production material, and I can promise you a beyond beautiful new album post-summer this year. "Empty" works as a teaser and stand along kind of piece and a new video will hit with the album release. Silentium always had this precious sound and it's something they've managed to maintain since the 90's. The symphonic elements cuts life a knife through the soundscape and for me it's a main characteristic of the band. This song is a cover of the band Eva + Manu. Video scripted and directed by Riina.

Friends, we are happy to share the good news that Heike just got her permanent residence approved. We are available for shows apart from December this year. The wait is over and we are ready for you 🤟
So, congrats to Heike and some final sweet relief after such a lengthy, isolating process.
As it comes to the upcoming yet untitled album, we are currently working on recordings and finalising the song-writing as we go. We are also working on a visual concept for the cover & booklet with a wonderfully expressive photographic artist we've come across. We are very excited about the album and can't wait to hear what you guys think about it. We're aiming for a December / January release and in the process of new management. More information will follow soon. Cheers.
Drums done! Thank you Karl-Daniel Lidén of Studio Gröndahl, and our own Jerry of course, for excellent frikkin' work! A giant step closer to what we believe will turn out a great record. Hail the Horde!🤟
Don’t forget to order your copy of ”Where Lovers Mourn” and ”Arcane Rain Fell” before they run out! First time on vinyl! Also if you have any questions regarding the recordings of these albums or about the times we created them, please let us know in the comments and we’ll try to answer them.
