SILENT STREAM OF GODLESS ELEGY have been pioneering their own way of what's now being called “Folk Metal” since their founding in 1995. They emerged from Moravia, which makes up the eastern third of modern day Czech Republic, deep within the Slavonic heartlands. It is the Slavic feelings of ancient longing and melancholy that fuel the fires of passion in their music, which is a unique combination of traditional Moravian folk music and doom/death metal. Tradition permeates the music of the Moravians by their use of violin, cello, and dulcimer; it also shows in the vocals and choral parts.
Moravian folkish doomsters SILENT STREAM OF GODLESS ELEGY are now about to release their sixth album entitled “Smutnice”. As for the title, it’s not a common word in Czech language. "Smutnice" is noun coming from adjective “smutný” what means “sad / sorrowful”, so the meaning could be like “a poem of sadness” or “someone who brings sadness”. The Moravians entered GrapowStudios again to record with Roland Grapow himself and joined forces with Yossi Sassi (Yossi Sassi & The Oriental Rock Orchestra, ex-Orphaned Land), the world famous Oriental rock pioneer, who took care of the production of the album.
