A Place Where the Sun Is Silent. A Place Where the Sun Is Silent is the fourth studio album by Alesana. It was released through Epitaph Records on October 18, 2011. The album was produced by Kris Crummett, who also worked on The Emptiness. Being the second concept album released by Alesana, A Place Where the Sun Is Silent was inspired by the epic poem The Inferno by Dante Alighieri.
I’ll admit, in the past I have enjoyed the odd song from Alesana. I honestly think they are not as bad as people say they are. The problem with them, however, is when they aren’t ok, they are totally awful. Take for instance the end of And They Call This Tragedy, from their second album. Despite this Alesana are, to the horror of many, back for their fourth full length. Named A Place Where The Sun Is Silent, it is, like all their previous records, a concept album. This album is based on part of the epic classical poem "The Divine Comedy", specifically, The Inferno. Split into two parts, named The Gate and The Immortal Still, it is just over an hour in length. Considering most could not even stand 3 minutes of these guys, listening to this is a mammoth task.
