Brooklyn Goths Silent Mass Unleash Dark Dreampop on New Album, ‘The Great Chaos’

In honor of the Summer Solstice

Ethereal Brooklyn goths and dark dream pop band Silent Mass, have just released their new album, The Great Chaos, in honor of the Summer Solstice. The songs unfold as a collection of vignettes, illuminating dark, hidden areas of consciousness. Each track channels themes of self-alienation, distorted emotions, restlessness, self-forgiveness, and realization. The memories from these periods emerge like stills taken from a film—sometimes blurred and disorienting, other times dreamy and almost illusory.

Silent Mass invites disciples of Post-Punk, Ethereal Wave, Shoegaze, and ’90s Alternative to a wailing wall of sound that is irresistible for anyone who has prayed for a darker and heavier Enya or is beckoned to embark on a sonic pilgrimage through territories claimed by The Cranberries, Chelsea Wolfe, Cranes, and Dead Can Dance. The music of Silent Mass is not for the faint of heart.

In sun-drenched pre-pandemic Los Angeles, Silent Mass emerged as a solitary pursuit by Ammo Bankoff. Her debut single, a cover of ‘Total Recall’ that Big Takeover Magazine called  “melancholic escapist dreamery,” was released in 2020 on Dune Altar as part of the charity compilation ‘Do You Feel That Way Too? A Tribute to Adrian Borland & The Sound.’ Shortly after, she relocated with audio engineer and guitarist Robert Duncan to join drummer and producer Alex Posell in NYC. 

Are you going to be adding Silent Mass’ debut LP, The Great Chaos to your rotation?
