Like 2018’s Becoming A Demon EP before it, Silver Talon’s first full-length album feels like the missing link between Sanctuary and Nevermore. The latter is especially felt with the sweeping layers of Jeff Loomis-style shred guitar, modern tones, and densely arranged vocal melodrama ala mid-era Warrel Dane. There is also an underlying Power Metal spirit throughout is perhaps most rooted in something like Refuge Denied or even classic Queensryche. The band has only doubled down on that spirit with Decadence And Decay (M-Theory Audio).

Portland Metal band Silver Talon rose from the ashes of Spellcaster several years ago to forge a new path that in the long run may be more impressive than their predecessor with an (oc)cult following. Silver Talon will drop its first full-length album Decadence and Decay via M-Theory Audio, this week May 28th, 2021 and it’s full of absolute bangers. At once heavy, extreme, progressive, with penetrating lyrics delivered with unique vocils, that are almost dark and ethereal sounding. You can check out the new single “Next To The Sun” right now at Ghost Cult!
