The highly anticipated debut from Portland, Oregon's SILVER TALON
With a virtuosic guitar attack, a rumbling rhythm section, and powerful, soaring vocals, Portland, Oregon’s Silver Talon is razor sharp and ready to become a major force in heavy metal. In February of 2018, Silver Talon released their first demo track “Devil Machine.” The track offered a small sample of Silver Talon’s ability to masterfully blend hook, melody, and technical ability into fist clenching, head-bangable heavy metal. Their second demo release, “Warrior’s End,” showcases more of Silver Talon’s dexterity in riffs, bent time signatures, and lush melodies.
Silver Talon features guitarists Bryce Vanhoosen and Sebastian Silva, Gabe Franco on bass, and Colin Vranizan on drums - all four hailing from Prosthetic Records and internationally touring act Spellcaster. Once said four horsemen of Spellcaster parted ways with their vocalist, they decided to change their moniker, and cast a worldwide net for some new pipes. Lucky for them, the caught Wyatt Howell of Sanctifyre close by in Eugene, Oregon.
Guitarist Bryce Vanhoosen explains the path Silver Talon is looking to take after the crumbling of Spellcaster.
“We’re basically trying to take Spellcaster a bit more over the top. The songs are more complicated, more progressive, more aggressive, there’s more guitar solos, and crazier vocal harmonies.”
For fans of Yngwie Malmsteen, Savatage, Sanctuary, Queensrÿche, and Helloween.
