Melodic AOR band from Canada named after the Pool of Siloam described in the Bible.

Siloam Siloam - Sweet Destiny (Image 7) 1991

1. "Her I Am Again" (3:01)
2. "Miss Lizzy" (3:36)
3. "Child of Mine" (3:53)
4. "Chemical King (Big Fight)" (3:35)
5. "Eastern Skies" (6:37)
6. "Deceiver" (3:16)
7. "After the Fire" (4:54)
8. "Lethal Lady" (5:03)
9. "Sweet Desinty" (4:28)
10. "Decent Souls" (4:12)

Exceptional, melodic, commercial metal with loads of hooks and killer vox. They sort of remind me slightly of Skid Row. The production is also quite good for an unknown independent band. This disc is out of print.

Siloam - Dying to Live (Ocean) 1995

1. "Apathy" (5:37)
2. "Daddy's Little Girl" (3:34)
3. "Dying to Live" (4:00)
4. "Pain Inside" (4:36)
5. "Home Comin'" (4:14)
6. "Brand New Man" (3:46)
7. "Tender Heart" (4:44)
8. "My Pal Judas" (4:24)
9. "Lost in the Rain" (5:01)
10. "Welcome to Despair" (9:40)
11. "Pain Inside" (4:38)

Well produced Christian melodic metal/AOR from Canada. "Dying to Live" was the bands second album and is also their most well known, due to some decent marketing from a label with good distribution. When this disc first came out I checked it out and was not overly impressed, mostly due to the fact that at the time, I was more interested in the heavier side of metal. Having
grown to like the more melodic stuff over time I must say this disc is much better than I remember it. There are actually some pretty heavy numbers on this one, including album opener "Apathy" and "Daddy's Little Girl." Of course there are plenty of radio-ready, keyboard soaked power ballads in the tradition of Warrant and Bon Jovi. The title track is one such number as is
"Lost in the Rain" and ""Welcome to Despair." "My Pal Judas" is a bass driven, funky rocker. "Pain Inside" is a bluesy mid paced rocker. This disc has been out of print for years. I bid on this cd on eBay a few times but wasn't really willing to pay more that the low bid ($5), so I was almost always outbid. I finally found this cd in a clearance bin for 99¢. Can't beat that.

Siloam also put out third disc called "Crock."
