The Quiet Room features Amanda Farrell and Josh Farrell with special guests Leo Margarit (Pain of Salvation), Anis Jouini (Myrath), and Ruben Wijga (Ex-ReVamp, Blackbriar). Quiet Room is the last effort from the band Neverlight. The band is from USA and are a gothic heavy metal band with progressive influences. The album is meant to offer solace on an epic journey into the darkest corners of the human soul.
Neverlight was born out of darkness, out of fear, and out of the possibility of loss. In 2012, vocalist Amanda Farrell was diagnosed with cancer. Though the word cancer is fearsome enough, even more terrifying to Amanda Farrell was the very real possibility that surgery would damage her voice. To someone who derives so much happiness and peace from the simple act of singing, such damage would be devastating. However, after she recovered from surgery and realized that her voice was intact, she knew she was meant to use it.
Partners Josh and Amanda Farrell had been writing songs together since the early 2000s, so it was very natural for them to focus their energies into a cohesive project. After releasing an EP and full-length album with local talent, the duo decided that Neverlight’s vision would be better served as a studio project, with artists brought in as necessary to help create the best music possible. The track Unravel, featuring Ruben Wijga from Ex-ReVamp, Piano, Violin, FX, Orchestrations, Anis Jouini from Myrath on bass and Leo Margarit from Pain Of Salvation on drums.
