The album title implies that these bands come from Spain, but that’s absolutely wrong. This split-CD contains two German Hardcore acts and both cut a fine figure.
SCREAMIN’ SILENCE offer five (except the intro) straight and hateful tracks with some Death Metal influenced Vocals, which perfectly suit into their concept. Otherwise, we have to do with fast Thrash respectively Hardcore riffs and an amount of breakdowns. The problem on SCREAMIN’ SILENCE is the lack of an own identity, regarding the aspect, that there exist lots of similar bands, makes it difficult for the Germans to stand out of the crowd. But all in all, the six tracks are absolutely decent and promising.
Basically, aforementioned problem, the lack of an own character, also affects the second band, although LAST DAY EVER are a bit more variable and they are the definite winner on this split-CD. Their music is as well Hardcore, or better Metalcore, because LAST DAY EVER have a bigger Metal influence in their songs than SCREAMING’ SILENCE. Their five songs plus intro are very diversified and heavy. Highlights like “False Truth” and “Bloodletting” are promising and show off much potential.
This is a sure thing for fans of bands like UNEARTH, HELL WITHIN or BLOODY SUNDAY. If you want furthermore support the Underground, this is a must and you should get in contact with their label via internet to order this harsh record. (Online December 21, 2005)
