PLATITUDE picture
Platitude was a Swedish neoclassical power metal band that was formed back in 1995, until they decided not to continue in 2008 due to "injuries, lack of time and devotion" according to their website.

Platitude from Sweden secured themselves a record deal with Italian Scarlet Records in the spring of 2002, and their debut studio album "Secrets Of Life" was recorded in the beginning of August 2002 together with producer Tommy Hansen at the world renomed Jailhouse Studios (Helloween, Pretty Maids, TNT, etc.). The Japanese version was released in February 2003 and within the next months, positive reviews from all over the world came rushing in. According to many, Platitude was the next shining star in the European heavy metal industry. Followed by the great mediatric response, it was time to face the fans. In May 2003, Platitude joined the Danish heavy metal band Manticora on a European tour.

PLATITUDE Secrets of Life

Album · 2003 · Power Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners

'Secrets of Life' is the debut album by the relatively unknown Platitude, and can best be described as a "generic power metal album". I don't mean this in a bad way, but there's really not much that can be said about it. It's a solid record, with some great compositions and polished production, and perfectly blends elements from power, progressive and speed metal. There's also some strong neo-classical vibes to some of the songs, which always adds some nice flavour. But overall, there's just nothing groundbreaking or amazing that sets them apart from similar bands.

With two guitarists and a keyboard player in the band, there is plenty of intense melodies and solos, with all three players working together perfectly and with great chemistry to come up with some exciting and complex songs, and Erik "EZ" Blomkvist's vocals fit perfectly with this genre of music.

It may be a "generic" album, but songs such as 'Deception', 'Just One Try', 'Evil Sky' and the title track, make this a worthy addition to a metal fans collection.

PLATITUDE Silence Speaks

Well, here's a pleasant little gem from a band that approximately nobody has heard of. 'Silence Speaks' by Platitude is proof that if you dig around in the right places, you will eventually strike gold. Sadly, this band split up shortly after the release of this album, which is a huge shame as with this, their third record, they stripped away a lot of the neo-classical elements of their previous records and went with a more simpler, "melodic metal" vibe. And it sounds great!

This is progressive/power metal, without all the musical virtuosity, and it shows that sometimes taking elements from progressive metal, but focusing on the song-writing as much as the "showing off" can really benefit the music.

Now with only one guitarist in the band, Gustav Kollerstroms stripped down riffs compliment Wachens keyboard melodies perfectly, leaving as much emphasis on both instruments to really play off of each other. And with Erik "EZ" Blomkvists warm, and very easy-to-listen-to vocals, this album is an absolute joy from start to finish. Highlights from this album include 'Tell the Truth', 'Silence Speaks', 'Fear (It's Over Now)' and 'Walk With Me'; each song sadly lost in today's vast musical landscape.

Whilst this isn't a record that was set to kick off a new musical revolution, it certainly is a nice little addition to any prog or power metal fans collection, and it's a shame with the new direction they were headed in, that Platitude never really got any recognition and disbanded unheard of. 'Silence Speaks' is the true definition of a "hidden gem".
