"Batoh announced the end of Ghost, a band whose first work reached back to 1984. Quick on the heels of this heady announcement, Batoh declared the beginning of The Silence. Still in need of direction, he turned to another old companion and original Ghost-mate of the many years gone by, Ogino. Tasked with the production and arrangement of The Silence, Ogino selected Jan Stigter on bass, Ryuichiro Yoshida on flute and saxophone, and himself on organ and piano. With Okano playing drums and percussion and Batoh supplying guitar and vocals, The Silence was complete. The debut album from The Silence is at last available! Drawing deep into a collective musical soul that extends many eras into the past, the songs of The Silence fill the air with the richness of powerful rock and roll and the deep mystic resonance of the ancient traditional musics of the world. From the rich melodies of Silence originals, 'Lemon Iro No Cannibis' and 'Jewels in Tibet,' to their flute-and-power chord-laden version of 'Black Is the Color of My True Love's Hair,' to the flowing liquid psychdelia of 'Triptycon,' the guttural cabaret mutterings of Can's 'Tango Whiskeyman' and the frantic, explosive dimensions of 'Pesach,' The Silence runs through instrumental colors like passing thoughts in the mind, making each one of them music and making an incredible rock album for this century!"
