Silver Talon signs with M-Theory Audio
Official press release: M-Theory Audio is proud to announce the signing of the Portland, Oregon-based Silver Talon. The group, which features three former members of the acclaimed traditional metal band Spellcaster, will kick off a three-week national tour in support of their self-released debut EP, Becoming A Demon, on Wednesday in San Francisco. A full-length album will follow in 2019. "Silver Talon is incredibly excited to have officially signed on with M-Theory Audio," says guitarist Bryce VanHoosen. "It's an honor to not only work with a team of experienced and veteran industry professionals, but also to be on a formidable roster of solid young talent. We're eager to get to work on the next offering from Silver Talon just as soon as we return from our maiden U.S. tour." Rising from the ashes of Spellcaster, Silver Talon aims to keep the flame of heavy metal burning. Formed by ex-Spellcaster members VanHoosen, Gabriel Franco (bass), Colin Vranizan (drums) and Sebastian Silva (guitar) in the spring of 2017, and joined by vocalist Wyatt Howell (Sanctifyre) shortly thereafter, Silver Talon seeks to pickup where Spellcaster left off. "We're basically trying to take Spellcaster a bit more over the top," VanHoosen says. "The songs are more complicated, more progressive, more aggressive, and there's more guitar solos and crazier vocal harmonies."
