Biography

Ireland (1997 – 2003, 2010 – present)

One Minute Silence were a four-piece band based in Ireland that combined influences from metal, hardcore punk and rap (and, later, elements from stoner and progressive rock). The band consisted of vocalist Brian ‘Yap’ Barry, guitarist Massimo Fiocco, drummer Eddie Stratton and bassist Glen Diani, started in 1997. The band announced its split after eight years in a press release dated October 21, 2003. Yap went on to record two albums with his own project Pink Punk.

In September 2010 the band reunited with new drummer Martin Davies and are currently writing material for a new album and live shows in 2011. An EP entitled “Fragmented Armageddon” will be released in June 2013.

Although they claimed not to be a “political band” — they are simply “political people” who are also musicians, they say the group’s lyrics have a political message which can be interpreted as generally anti-capitalist and anarchist.

    The first two albums by One Minute Silence are classic rap metal albums.

    Really looking forward for seeing these lot again whenever they venture up to the north-east. Used to love all the albums back when I was younger, it's pretty nostalgic seeing they've reformed but looking forward to seeing what the 2011 OMS are going to sound like as well.

    these guys were never original. they awlays had the very heavy ghost of RATM hanging very heavy over their heads. they were great at the time, but not particularly original.

    Disagree. Judging originality needs context, and upon its release the first two records definitely were original.
