Switzerland’s Majesty of Silence was founded in the spring of 1996 by Peter Papadimitriya (drums), Peter Mahler (guitar) and Christian Geissmann (first bass, then guitar) who shared a passion for black metal. Citing a wide variety of influences including Dimmu Borgir, Immortal and Sonata Arctica the band affirms “Silence differs from absent noise and that it’s obvious that this is no mass music.” After releasing three albums, “Darkness Has No End”(1999), “But There’s a Light”(2003) and “Lichtsille”(2006) and going on to play many well-received shows the band went on hiatus in 2010. Revived in 2016 Peter Mahler and Christian Geissmann continue the band as a two man project.
