And the consensus of opinion is....?

December 23, 2018

So much blood, sweat and tears goes into creating an album. 

Hmmm, well that's not strictly true, it is a helluva lot of work for sure but I don't remember seeing any blood - a few blisters from the drumming and strumming maybe.

But there was plenty of sweat and tears along the way, so we get 2 out of 3, which ain't bad.


Of course, it doesn't tell the whole story as there's a ton of enjoyable bits to music making and plenty of laughter along the road too. I guess no-one would be in the business otherwise. It's definitely a nerve wracking experience putting your creation 'out there' though. Will people love it? Hate it? Ignore it? Aaaaagggghhh!


Soooo we're truly stoked and grateful for the support we received since The Borders of Light album was released and for the rave reviews which it received from around the globe, some of which we've included here. 

The Borders of Light is still selling well, Raw Silk's fanbase keeps on growing and even the first album Silk Under the Skin has recently re-emerged with EMI Greece re-releasing it on vinyl. More exciting news coming your way very soon.


Love and best wishes for a wonderful Christmas 2018. 

Keep it real!


Νομίζω πως αξίζει μια ακρόαση του “Borders of Light” των καινούργιων Raw Silk μάλιστα θα έλεγα πως επιβάλλεται.

Αρκεί να ανοίξετε τα αφτιά σας και το μυαλό σας, και να μη κολλήσετε σε μουσικά στεγανά. Η καλή μουσική είναι καλή μουσική, τελεία και παύλα. Αξιολογότατη κυκλοφορία ! Βαθμολογία: 87/100.

Νο 4 στα 20 καλύτερα άλμπουμ του 2017!


I don't just think it's worth listening to The Borders of Light, I would actually say it's essential. Make sure to open your ears and keep an open mind and don't allow yourself to get stuck in musical stereotyping. Good music is always good music, full stop. A very impressive release! Rating: 87/100.

Nonetheless, I sensed that RAW SILK gave more room to ​​their artistic nature other than following the Popish vibe, laying down tracks such as emotive harbinger of class 'The Borders of Light', certainly one of the best songs of the genre made in the last couple of years, showing off beyond normality.

'The Borders of Light' contains uplifting Melodic Rock. Rating:7,5







'The Borders of Light' contains powerful melodies combined with the characteristic keys and heavy riffs of the band


Το 'The Borders of Light' περιέχει δυνατές μελωδίες συνδυασμένες με τα χαρακτηριστικά πλήκτρα και heavyriffs του συγκροτήματος.








The synths are in full force in 'Out of Reach'   a distinctive melodic gem with fab harmonies.


FIREWORKS magazine





Το καινούργιο άλμπουμ των RawSilk είναι ένα άλμπουμ με μοναδικότητα στον ήχο, εφευρετικές καινοτομίες που δεν ακούμε συχνά σε τραγούδια της AOR σκηνής.

Δεν έχει σε τίποτα να ζηλέψει την επιτυχία του 1ου άλμπουμ των Raw Silk μιας και η μουσική που περιέχει είναι μια πολυσυλλεκτική κατάθεση εμπειριών 27 χρόνων.

Μελωδία, εφευρετικότητα, μελαγχολία, δυναμική και πάνω από όλα Hard Rock!

Πραγματικό ακατέργαστο μετάξι.


The new album of Raw Silk is an album with uniqueness in the sound, inventive innovations we do not often hear in AOR scene songs. It has nothing to envy the success of the first Raw Silk album, since the music it contains is a multi-faceted record of 27 years of experience. Melody, ingenuity, melancholy, dynamic and above all Hard Rock!

Real silk.




There’s a laid back charm and certain precise progressive yet melodic dexterity to Raw Silk’s latest album ‘The Borders of Light' which follows the acclaimed debut from the 90’s ‘Silk Under The Skin’.

The Rockpit





There is a generally melancholic sense to a lot of this album, the riffs and keys playing up defiantly. It’s a clever combination of the up and down, emotions stretched through every song. That’s the sort of thing that can make an                                                     AOR album stand out from the pack. 17/20


The Roctologist



'The Borders of Light' is completely different to the first album. It is heavier, and more modern in style, with powerful guitars and up to date sounding keyboards, emotionally charged vocals and amazing tracks.

Rating 9.5/10!


Το 'The Borders of Light', δεν έχει καμία σχέση με το πρώτο τους άλμπουμ. Είναι πιο heavy προσαρμοσμένο στην εποχή του, με δυνατές κιθάρες, πλήκτρα άλλης εποχής, φωνή συναισθηματική και συνθέσεις τρομερές.  Rating: 9,5/10





This new material sounds thoughtful, personal, romantic, soft, sophisticated, a result of perhaps maturity, but also of the time it has at its disposal to organize it effortlessly and well.


Το νέο αυτό υλικό ακούγεται στοχαστικό, προσωπικό, διέπεται από ρομαντισμό, είναι ήπιων τόνων, εκλεπτυσμένο, αποτέλεσμα ίσως ωριμότητας αλλά και τού χρόνου που είχε στη διάθεσή του εκείνος για να το οργανώσει αβίαστα και άρτια.

Flight of Pegasus




But the track that I'm in love with, at first sight, is the huge and very AOR-ish 'Out Of Reach'. Amazing keys, a beautiful melody, strong arrangements and passionate vocals are the ingredients of this superb and pure AOR gem. 8/10!


Heavy Paradise




This album is a pleasure to listen to throughout and I expect this band will get great air play and build their audience exponentially with this level of songwriting and musicianship…  I look forward to hearing more fine music from Raw Silk, a band with unlimited potential.

The Borders of Light 

Rating: 81/100!





There are few bands of the genre nowadays who can write tracks such as the 'The Borders of Light'  and the farewell ballad 'Solitude of Pain'. Respect.


Και αυτό γιατί κομμάτια σαν το ομότιτλο 12λεπτο «The Borders of Light» καθώς και την αποχαιρετιστήρια μπαλάντα “Solitude of Pain”, λίγες μπάντες στο συγκεκριμένο χώρο μπορούν να γράψουν πλέον. Respect.
