"'World of colour’ is an apt metaphor for the music that lies within this six-track mini-album... Silas have cleverly worked their music in such a way that the compositions maintain their essential cohesion despite the unusual paths they frequently tread... those with a love of melody and of bands inclined to take the path less trod will find much to admire on this record and it certainly promises big things for the future. ‘World of colour’ is well worth exploring." - Sonic Abuse, September 2012.

"They go from heartfelt blues vibes to really ruthless and punishing Metal moments... By experiencing the whole record you notice how daring the guys in Silas really are as songwriters and musicians, handling all the styles with technical ability and conviction.
Clean vocal melodies, growls, technical guitar solos, grooves and acoustic passages among many other things are approached naturally, showing that these guys are fans of musical diversity and genuinely inclined towards the many genres they include in their compositions." - Metaltalk, September 2012.
