Described as a cross between Pilot and Candlemass Silver Sun formed in 1995 and have been ploughing their rock furrow ever since.
Their plough is a dual-guitar attack moistened with lush harmonies and a visceral rhythm. Their lyrics (written by James and old school rival Lee Collard) have attracted much attention and 3 fatwahs concerning as they do pole vaulting, motorcycles, religion, happiness, death and space (in that order).
