Until Silence marks a monumental shift for ROLL THE DICE. The characteristic framework of piano and synthesizer is reinforced with a newly conscripted string section: dramatic arrangements grind against furnace blasts of static, and phases of unrelenting rhythmic intensity collapse into moments of frayed, fragile beauty. The Stockholm-based duo's most powerful and nuanced work to date is by turns harrowing and searching, pushing their sound to monolithic, foundation-shuddering heights of ambition and scale. For Until Silence, PEDER MANNERFELT and MALCOLM PARDON enlisted ERIK ARVINDER to work on string arrangements for several of the album's tracks, which were then recorded with a 26-piece ensemble. Arvinder's contributions further heighten the natural cycles of tension and release that are cornerstones of the Roll The Dice sound. During the album's harshest moments, they sharpen every piano note and rhythmic sub-bass throb so the music cuts jagged from the speakers, while during quieter phases they carve open huge spaces within the music. Vinyl edition is limited and includes a CD of the full album.
