Despite only being together for a year, Newcastle alt-rock trio Ilser released their double A-Side single Led By Silence/ Forgotten on 1st December as a free download. Now, the band are unveiling the new video for Led by Silence, produced by north east company Single Stone.

Led By Silence draws heavily from the blues, heavy metal and dynamic punk that has influenced the band. Recorded by Chris McManus at Blank Studios, the weight of the crushing riffs and snarling vocals comes through on the sparse production. Filled with raw aggression and power, the song isn’t without its melodic edge thanks to chief songwriter Rachael Whittle’s ability to juxtapose the rough with the smooth.

Led By Silence is available for free from Ilser’s Bandcamp page. We can expect a full EP from the band in early 2015.
