Bride – Silence Is Madness – 1989

Bride finished the 80’s with an album that was very well received. It definitely toned down the thrash metal sound that most fans had grown use to and started to lean more towards an arena rock sound. That said this is a Metal album and you’ll realize that right away on the first track. That said “Until The End We Rock” is more of an arena rock tune and my pick for a single. The album does have a bit of an oddball track being “Rock Those Blues Away”. Best described as Glenn Kaiser meets Darrell Mansfield it’ll kind of surprise you as you finish off the album. All in all a good offering from Bride and is probably one of my preferred albums from them.
