A big catchy and mysterious hook, and hard driving guitar riffs only begins to describe the new single release “Voices” from the high energy Philadelphia based band Shadow of Silence. A totally unique blend of alternative, gothic, metal, and just plain old ass-kicking hard rock is on display in “Voices” the debut single from the band.
The track was recorded at Dylanava Studios in Gwynedd Valley, PA, and was engineered and produced by ™Grammy nominated engineer/producer David Ivory (Halestorm, The Roots, Silvertide). The mastering was done by famed engineer Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in NYC.
Shadow of Silence consists of three veteran musicians from the Philadelphia area. While Blade Thornton provides the provocative lead vocal, he is accompanied by two other rock steady musicians. Sam McKee – Guitars and Back vocal, and Duncan McKee on Drums. The two provide the killer rhythm section, and melodic guitar riffs to Thornton’s red hot vocals.
“Voices” clearly exhibits a great degree of commercial appeal in the hard rock market” states Producer David Ivory. “I knew during our first or second pre-production session, that we had something special here”. The band in its total confidence that the single is a smash has engaged long time Philadelphia and New York based publicist Ken Cavalier, of Allure Media Entertainment Group, Inc., to get the word out to the mass music media and radio.
Shadow of Silence is headed back into the studio with Dave Ivory in early 2013 to record their follow up single to voices and begin pre-production on the debut full length album. This is one hard rock outfit that is quickly becoming a force to be dealt with. It won’t be long until this band will be talked about in the same circles as some of their greatest influence; the likes of Alice in Chains, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Megadeth, and many other hard rock and metal greats.
