Stevie Janevski comments on each song on the album Silent Company (2005):
Reborn - A very uptempo paced track. This one conjures a devious
shady character. With little values and even less scruples it is about
those that twist and turn to make their way ahead in life burning all
that get in their way. Through this sordid journey to get to the top they
must conquer the temptation of greed to find true salvation and happiness.
Only then do they realize that they are the Dragon Reborn.
Company - There's something about the other side of death that
fascinates us all. A fascination about the journey of the soul. And the
journey of those that didn't quite make it to the other side. There is
a theory that everyone has a spirit watching over them. Wondering if that
spirit is actually there? Look around. Do you have Silent Company? Hearing
strange noises? Voices? Coincidence or not?
Ribbons - Celtic feel tune that was originally recorded as a bonus
track but turned out interesting and different enough to make the final
cut. We were looking for a different type of cover song to put our stamp
on and this one seemed to be waiting for us. Love the Ritchie Blackmore
and Blind Guardian feel that reeks of emotive days gone by. Originally
a hit in Australia by Brit/Aussie entertainer Jon English taken from the
mini series Against the Wind in 1978. Features the excellent female guest
vocals of Susie Goritchan.
- Fall out from war can rage in the mind and hearts of men long after
the physical storm is over. This one powers back to a soldier's return
to his homeland only to have a bigger battle raging in his head from the
atrocities of war that have followed him home and won't go away.
Horizons - Once upon a time a newborn child was born innocent and
pure. These days it seems that a new life can more so be born tainted
from its first gasping breath. New Horizons is about the modern world.
The earth's evolution and the mess that some of us feel we have made of
it. It is about the good and the bad and then weighing up.
Room - This song is about those who are not in the right state
of mind. The darkened room can be a place of sanctuary and a haven to
heal wounds so they can face another day and try to make it a brighter
- The tale of an ordinary person with a vision and the fight to
make decision makers in power see sense. The struggle of the simple man
versus class standings and power. Common sense and foresight versus ego
and greed. They say that in many cases even today that the law can be
an ass. You can imagine those with visions over the years struggling to
get their forward thinking across to those that won't listen.
Surrender - A song of hope and salvation. When things are dragging
you down - never give up. Believe in yourself! Have faith that a new beginning
could be coming your way. The end is NEVER the end if you don't give up.
Better Way To Die - A song about choices we make. And sometimes
choices being forced upon us. Ever wondered how your life will end? And
if a greater force was to give you an option which would you take? The
options are not of our liking..but maybe YOURS?
