Description

Silo - Alloy

Release date 12 April 2001


Alloy - the OED tells us it's a new kind of metal. Hence the title of Danish trio Silo's rather
wonderful second album, the follow-up to Instar (1998). So don't start thinking this is a nu-metal
LP - Silo are about low-slung, cyclical grooves - real headnod shit - a unique distillation of the
best of rock and electronica.

As new technologies breed new hybrids, so old certainties break down. Silo are a case in point.
Ostensibly a classic rock power trio (guitar/ bass/ drums) these three Danes have been subverted
and seduced by the heady possibilities of digital manipulation to a point where they are both a
rock band in actuality and a rock band inside a computer. Their originality comes from the fact
that their electronic methodology is built into the band at the absolute ground level.

As the album unwinds, you'll come to realise there's something not quite right about it. Then you
realise: there's not a single track recorded in 4/4 time on the whole record. The disorientation is
hypnotic. There are only three people in the world who can dance to it.

Silo have played live (they totally rock, we can assure you) with everyone from Godspeed You
Black Emperor! and Trans Am, to Blonde Redhead and Lydia Lunch. They appeared at 1999's
Festival of Drifting and that year's tragic Roskilde Festival.

Silo are - Søren Dahlgaard, Frederik Ammitzbøll and Mikkel Bender.
