Jacob C McNamee started using the pseudonym “SILent REQuiem” back in 1998 when he got his first Amiga600 from a local thrift shop. At the time, he was making what could be loosely referred to as noize-industrial with funky undertones. Silreq continued making music until 2003 when a computer crash caused the loss of an albums worth of new music, financial troubles had also caused him to sell most of his recording equipment, keyboards, and his amiga. Silreq took a break from music between 2003 and 2005, where he concentrated on not being homeless. Since his re-emergence he has released a constant stream of noize that sounds something like a broken robot, Satan and your mum. . .
