RockmusicRaider Video - The Reticent - The Decision - On the Eve of a Goodbye - Cover ArtIn 2016 The Reticent issued one of the best – if not THE best – Progressive Metal album of the year called On the Eve of a Goodbye. And I am not saying this lightly. The emotional discharge, genuine passion and musical prowess are such that the record ended up on spot number two of the 2016 Top Ten Records in the RockmusicRaider universe. And the record still rocks a lot on the RMR mighty sound machine. So much so that the tear-drenched tune risks to rust the metal it is built on.

The band continues to flesh out their piece of work with a variety of videos – again of outstanding quality. Their newest video The Decision is yet another outpouring of a boatload of sentiment. I would like to point out the noteworthy quality of production, storyline and execution of the clip. This video indeed catches the essence and – again – emotion of the moment very well.  [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!

RockmusicRaider Review - The Reticent - On the Eve of a Goodbye - Album CoverI love Progressive Metal. This is where #metal meets the grey unknown. Far, far away from the ‘established’ legion of bands, seemingly always wanting to produce more of the same. Of course, Progressive Metal covers lots of flavors and it takes a lot of musical skills to produce good content. On the other hand, the style is usually also an indicator of much creative energy at work.

Now, there is a large crowd out there professing that their forte lies in the progressive nirvana of the #metal universe. You’ll find loads of bands out there strumming a few djents, madly hitting the percussion, howling weirdly around the stage and calling this prog. So much so at times that you are served with a confused pandemonium of soundbytes that stops making sense after a while.  [...]  Got hooked? Raid on...!
