SILVER TALON Debut Full-Length 'Decadence and Decay' Due This Fall

SILVER TALON band

Heavy metal warriors SILVER TALON – whose classic-minded blend of speed, power, thrash and progressive metal was praised by Dead Rhetoric as “sharp, sophisticated and awe-inspiring” – have set “Decadence and Decay” as the title of their forthcoming full-length debut, due to be released this fall via M-Theory Audio. More information about the album will be revealed in the coming weeks.

After SILVER TALON spent much of 2019 on tour in support of their self-released debut EP “Becoming A Demon,” the Portland, Oregon-based sextet – which features two former members of the acclaimed traditional metal group Spellcaster – entered Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, California this year with producer Zack Ohren (Machine Head, Exmortus, Warbringer). Additional recording took place at Portland's Falcon Studios with Gabe Johnston (Idle Hands, Vintersea) and the home studio of guitarist Bryce VanHoosen.

VanHoosen says that “Decadence and Decay” raises the bar set by “Becoming A Demon,” which featured a guest guitar solo by Jeff Loomis (Arch Enemy, Nevermore) and was hailed by Metal-Temple.com as “aggressive, virtuosic, flawless, and polished heavy metal.” “The direction is a lot more dark, melodic and progressive, and given the past year of trials and tribulations (cancelled Euro tours, the Pledge Music rip-off, guitarist barred from entering the country), deals with themes of societal collapse, life at the end of the world, and the spirit fighting to remain free.”

SILVER TALON formed in 2017 out of the ashes of Spellcaster, when several of that band's former members joined forces with vocalist Wyatt Howell (Sanctifyre) to perform what VanHoosen calls a “more over-the-top” style of metal than their former group. “The songs are more complicated, more progressive, more aggressive, and there’s more guitar solos and crazier vocal harmonies,” he says.

With a virtuosic guitar attack, a rumbling rhythm section and powerful vocals, SILVER TALON – who in recent months have performed alongside the likes of Evergrey, Warbringer, Enforcer, Exmortus, Unleash The Archers, Striker, The Absence, Powerglove, Savage Master, Vital Remains and Hatchet – is razor-sharp and ready to become a major force in heavy metal. The band's next scheduled performance will take place at the fourth annual Legions of Metal festival in Chicago alongside the likes of Exciter, Vain and Slough Feg rescheduled to September 4-5.

 

Influenced by U.S. metal greats like Savatage, Omen and Helstar, but with the kind of unique twist that made Manilla Road stand out from the pack, SILVER TALON are an exciting prospect... the future looks bright for U.S. metal with SILVER TALON around.” – Zero Tolerance
