Hard Rock Pop Band He Is Legend New Album title Few inspired by The Voice of the Silence:
That’s why the title, a nod to Madame Helena Blavatsky’s occult treasure The Voice of the Silence, feels so cosmically apropos for the Wilmington, NC quartet—Schuylar Croom [vocals], Adam Tanbouz [lead guitar], Matty Williams [bass], and Denis Desloge [guitar].
“This is dedicated to the people who supported us through everything,” declares Croom. “I was inspired by the words of Helena Blavatsky. She’s basically the godmother of the occult, and she dedicated one of her books to the few.

Nice Spanish article – Music and Esotericism:
Música y esoterismo
Francisco Ramos ·  01/09/2017  
La idea wagneriana de convertir el teatro en un templo es la preocupación mayor del Scriabin influido por el teosofismo promulgado por la doctora H. P. Blavatsky. El músico, en las notas que preparara para su obra inacabada El acto previo, nos deja constancia de su interés por la construcción de un templo en la residencia de Teosofía de Madrás, en la India. La obsesión de Scriabin por la representación de un Misterio (síntesis de sonidos, danzas y colores) proviene de su continua búsqueda de un espacio nuevo, algún particular Bayreuth, en el que le fuera posible al compositor llegar a la consecución final de toda alquimia espiritual: la integración cósmica, la regeneración del mundo entero y todas las criaturas espirituales en éxtasis.
