Silent Lapse let the excitement of their original music guide the formation of the band. Their first full-length album was being written before they knew who was going to be playing it. Brothers Mitchell and Taylor Feldpausch spent long hours crafting about 1/2 of the material in a remodeled hog shed (don't worry, the smell is long-gone) before they assembled a band that could perform the material live. They found Scott Martin and Matt Schrauben through an online metal forum that Matt created and Wyatt Aldrich who was a friend of the brothers.
The music that most influenced their own is that of Pink Floyd, Metallica, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, and Dream Theater. The music is melody-driven and their songs are guided by variations of recurring themes that are easily recognizable and have staying power. Silent Lapse makes a conscious effort to avoid "filler." Every part is crafted with their own good taste in mind.
