Silent Fall was created in may 2005 from the passion for music of three members of the band : Guillaume (keyboards), Cyrille (guitar) and Adrien (lead vocals). After a long period of searching for a drummer and a bass guitar player, Benoist (bass guitar) and Paulo (drums) finally joined the band in September. This line-up started to play music under the name of Winterland.
The band began to play its first songs which were composed a few months earlier. Every member agreed to look for a second guitar player, in order to give more power and substance to the music. Fabrice therefore joined the band in June 2006. His arrival corresponded to the first main Parisian gigs of the band with, inter alia, a concert at l'Espace Curial on the 2nd June 2006 with Niflheim and The Last Embrace (200 people), and a presence at Heavenfest on the 8th July 2006, at la Maroquinerie (450 people).
The evolution of Winterland’s music and the cohesion of their many fans incited the group to begin producing their first EP, "The Snow Begin To Fall" in early 2007. The group moved onto the concert scene, notably with sixth place at Fallenfest, a Parisian musical contest bringing over 500 bands together, and allowing many dates at prestigious venues such as "Le Trabendo" and "La Cigale". Equally, it should be noted that the group has supported two Danish bands during their European tours, Mercenary and Mnemic, as well as several concerts outside of Paris.
Joined by two new members, Sylvain and Pedro, following the departure of Cyrille and Ben, Winterland concentrated on creating new pieces of music in preparation for their first album. Different musical desires came to life within the band and leaded unfortunately to the departure of Paulo and Pedro. Sylvain thus decided to move to bass while two new musicians, Olivier (guitar) and Fabio (drums) settled into the group. Having recorded four songs at Wildpath Studios, in order to gain more adequate promotional support, the group participated to the Raismesfest 2008 with renowned bands such as Gammaray or even Korpiklaani.
The band recorded its first album in May and should be back on the stages at the end of 2009. At this occasion, the band decided to change its name into Silent Fall. This change goes hand in hand with the arrival of a new guitar player, Pierre, replacing Fabrice.
Inspired in particular by bands like Angra, Sonata Arctica, Mercenary, Raintime or Edguy, the music of the band is a blend made of melodic, death and symphonic metal. But it keeps a certain personality acquired by the musical diversity of the band's members.
