released in Europe 1990, 'Entre Dos Tierras' is a track which can be found
on some 80s compilations.
The Heroes Del Silencio (Heroes Of Silence), based in Spain, were the
mediterrain link between bands like The Cult and the Sisters Of Mercy.
Since the founding in 1987, they soon gained a loyal followership, first
in their native country. This changed with the release of 'Senderos De
Traición' (Ways Of Betrayal), as this album spawned a hit in Spain
and Germany with the single 'Entre Dos Tierras'.
especially in Spain and Germany, they became known to a wider audience,
but although all their releases were highly acclaimed by the critics,
'Senderos De Traición' remained their only successful album outside
Despite of the similarites to bands like The Cult, they never sound like
a rip-off. As they always integrate their own sounds and origins, the
Heroes Del Silencio proves to be a pretty unique export of this country.
If you want
to listen to something different apart of all the Enriqués and
Rickys of this world, you should give this album a try.
