  1. Only ‘’Restless Oblivion’’ feels like a slightly exception, with a bulldozer-of-a-riff opening and its brute chorus, but to call The Silent Enigma a proper doom/death metal album might be far-fetched. It's tricky to describe what Anathema have ended up with instead.
  2. Jul 26,  · The dream of drifting into oblivion in moments of calm desperation is contemplated in the sober realization of the futility of human desires against a universe whose order of operation appears antagonistic towards such interests; it is this condition that Anathema's music laments, The Silent Enigma being the band's bleakest examination, the work in its entirety becoming increasingly /5(18).
  3. The Silent Enigma, the band's second studio album, was the first release on which guitarist Vincent Cavanagh took over vocal duties from the recently departed Darren White. While Darren's vocals were guttural, Vincent's more varied style pushed the possibilities for Anathema onwards and upwards.
  4. Anathema very slowly progressing to prog! Not only is the first awkward vocalist gone but the growls of Cavanaugh are a bit more bearable - it is more screaming than growling which suits his vocal better. Musically, the band has improved on all fronts: drums, interplay between guitars and keys, 6/
  5. First track 'Restless Oblivion' enters with a dreamy intro of clean guitars and gentle keyboards, before exploding into a kickass opening riff. I wholeheartedly believe that this first riff is the best moment on the album; the guitar tone is thick and heavy, the bass is nice .
  6. "The Silent Enigma" is the last Anathema album that could be described as a doom/death album, although with this album Anathema’s music is already loosing a lot of their death metal influences, as they started to use a lot more clean vocals and spoken passages and there is more clean guitars than on their earlier albums.
