CD review SILVERTHRONE ‘Tear the Sky Wide Open’

Amongst other Silverthrone comprises of artists like Brian Tichy and Pete Shoulder, a line-up completed by bassist Daniel Spree. The trio worked on an EP that will be released end of February, featuring excellent Hard Rock songs, soulful and earthy.

‚Tear the Sky Wide Open‘ leads off the EP and is a first hit. Traditional Hard Rock, spiced up with a modern expression, is what the song stands for and hereby acts as a perfect introduction for this five-track release. 

A rocking vibe is also what comes to you with ‚Roll Me Back Again‘, although being a bit slower paced as the opener. ‚Black River Rising‘ loads the bases. The melancholic track carries quite some Blues, especially in the calmer verse. During the chorus things get more dynamic and harder, an emotional peak that adds emotional suspense to the mix.

Compared to the first triple ‚Movin‘‘ takes a new turn. A strong rhythmical pattern acts as a backbone for a song that comes around the corner rough and with edges. Still it brings home a few runs. The tasteful closer is a song named ‚Hauntwd By the Dawn‘. Equipped with a grooving beat and gently swinging guitars the tune is a well-chosen end of Silverthrone‘s new EP. 

Hard Rock fans should have these guys on the radar and checking out this release will be no burden for sure. ‚Tear the Sky Wide Open‘, a record with handcrafted song for some easy living moments.
