Silent Voices is a Finnish progressive/melodic metal band also known as “the other band” of Henrik
Klingenberg, the keyboard player of Sonata Arctica.
Silent Voices are :
Timo Kauppinen – Guitar
Henrik Klingenberg – Keyboards
Pasi Kauppinen – Bass
Jukka-Pekka Koivisto – Drums
Silent Voices was founded in 1995 by guitarist Timo Kauppinen, bassist Pasi Kauppinen, drummer Jukka-
Pekka Koivisto and keyboardist Henrik Klingenberg. At the time their main influences were Dream
Theater and Rush. A couple of years later the line-up was completed when Michael Henneken joined in
on vocals. The band rehearsed intensely, made a couple of EP’s & singles and finally signed a deal and
released their debut album Chapters of Tragedy (in 2002) through Low Frequency Records.
Two more albums were made, Infernal (2004) and Building up the apathy (2006) before the first era came
to an end when the groups vocalist Michael Henneken left the band. Instead of desperately searching for a
new vocalist the band opted for a time-out, taking a well-earned break for over a year….and now the
silence is finally over.
The follow-up to the complex Building up the apathy is being recorded at Studio 57 in Alaveteli,
near the bands hometown Kokkola. Still not revealing who’ll be performing the vocals on the new album
but knowing the bands high standards, we can all expect another killer album with over the top
instrumental performances and solid songwriting. Only time will tell as the story unfolds…..
