"Silent Shout" is the third full length album (not including the "Hannah med H Soundtrack") by Swedish electropop duo The Knife, released initially in Sweden on February 15, 2006, then for the rest of Europe the following month on Rabid Records. The album was released in the U.S. on July 25 via Mute Records. "Silent Shout" is a darker album than its predecessor "Deep Cuts" [ [http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/record_review/19202/The_Knife_Silent_Shout Pitchfork Record Review] ] .The album has produced five singles: "Silent Shout", "Marble House", "We Share Our Mothers' Health", "Like a Pen" and "Na Na Na".

After being awarded "Best New Music" status by the influential online magazine Pitchfork Media in February of 2006, "Silent Shout" was later named Pitchfork Media's top album of 2006 [ [http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/feature/40007/Staff_List_Top_50_Albums_of_2006/page_5 Pitchfork Feature: Top 50 Albums of 2006] ] , with the title song being ranked the #2 song of the year [ [http://www.pitchforkmedia.com/article/feature/40070/Staff_List_The_Top_100_Tracks_of_2006/page_10 Pitchfork Feature: The Top 100 Tracks of 2006] ] .

The album, the music video for the title track and some of the press photos were inspired by "Black Hole" by American cartoonist Charles Burns. [http://www.theknife.net/o0ooo.html]

Mute Records has also released a deluxe, three-disc edition of "Silent Shout" on July 2, 2007 (July 17, 2007 in the U.S.). This package includes the studio album as well as the live DVD "" containing all of the duo's music videos to date. The third disc is a CD of the live concert's audio.
