Music media website Yesterdaze News has released a new review for the third full length album by A Breach Of Silence, Secrets, in a quick and dirty article that gives the skinny on the new project.

In the review written by Michael Baltierra, the latest effort from A Breach Of Silence is praised for its high production values and being an overall polished work with some solid heavy tunes and a few funny quirks.  We think that sums up the band quite well.
