2020 was a year that meant standstill for many people. But not for Tom S. Englund. Privately, the Swede entered the harbor of marriage, musically there were two topics in the room: On the one hand, the debut of Silent Skies was released, a project for which Englund teamed up with pianist Vikram Shankar. The other was the new Evergrey album "Escape Of The Phoenix". The two have nothing to do with each other directly, as the musician emphasizes: "The Silent Skies album was already finished three years ago. And my job is also to keep the two things completely apart."
As bad as "Torn" (2008) and "Glorious Collision" (2011) were made afterwards by some fans, they were definitely not. Nevertheless: Since "Monday Morning Apocalypse" the band around the charismatic guitarist and singer Tom S. Englund had clearly lost relevance and identity.
