Silencer was a Swedish suicidal black metal band formed in 1995. They released one album “Death - Pierce Me” before splitting up. The album had a major impact on the swedish underground scene at the time, and arguably helped certain bands in the scene to form. The band has been the subject of much controversey, mainly because of several allegations made against their vocalist Nattramn, who was supposedly institutionalized shortly after the album was released, thus forcing the band to split up.
In June 1st 1998, Silencer released a demo called “Death, Pierce Me”, limited to 40 copies. Without a label at the time, the band sent the CDs out themselves. In 2001 they released their first and only album. It has since been re-released by Autopsy Kitchen Records.
