Jesus-Loving Atmospheric Hardcore Act Silent Planet Returning to Paper Tiger


  • Facebook / Silent Planet
Christian metal act Silent Planet is headed to San Antonio for a show at Paper Tiger on Thursday, March 19.

The California-based band's reverence for the magical Nazarene may seem strange, especially when expressed via screams. But like a handful of other metal acts expressing pro-religious sentiments, they go hard as, well, hell.

Since forming more than a decade ago, Silent Planet has grabbed attention thanks to energetic live shows and a sound that merges post-rock atmospherics with metallic hardcore grooves.

The band is currently signed to Solid State Records, a faith-based metal label that's pumped out a string of worthy releases by acts including Norma Jean, Spitfire, Zao, Underoath and Extol.

Tickets are on sale now.
