Silber's journey began in 2002 with members Tom v.K, Guido Winters, Thomas auf dem Berge and Oli Emmrich. The band had a clear vision in which sound and direction they wanted and have remained loyal to this goal ever since
Silber were to release their debut album with Sony records in 2002. But a major reshuffle at the company saw Silber pull out of the contract not long before the album was to be released.
It was to be well over a year before Silber were able to find a suitable record company in Neue Zeiten. So in 2003 Silber released their long awaited and much delayed debut album. The album had a number of changes to the one to be released with Sony. The album coverart was chaged from this to this and three songs were dropped, they were "Ende Schwarze TraŁme', 'Niemand ist sicher' and 'Kalt Wie Eis' the later of which you can download from the media section of this site. The first self titled cd set Silber a platform on which to launch themselves into the Deutsche Musik world. Many were blown away by the clever mood touching music created by this group of talented bunch of musicians. With the lessons learnt from the first cd, Silber knew the direection they wanted to take for the next cd.
In late 2004 Silber broke off with their record label shortly before the new album was completed. Over a year was spent searching for a new record label. What made it even more frustrating was the fact that the album was complete and ready to go. In May 2006 Silber announced to the world that they had resolved this issue by creating their own record label connectedways.records. The new cd was named 'Hier und Jetzt' and was given a release date of 25th August 2006, exactly 3 years after their debut album was released.
But in July 2007 came the sad news that shocked all of Silber's fans that the band had decided to break up. It caught everybody off guard especially as it was unde a year since the brilliant Hier und Jetzt. Many fans were left totally shell shocked. This is the end of the Silber chapter, but we will most likely see each of the guys in their new projects.
