Savage Master (Louisville, KY)
“If you’re aware of SAVAGE MASTER then you should know were they come from both musically and aesthetically. If not, then let’s just say they come straight from the deepest vaults of the ’80s. Clad in denim and leather, heads hooded (like MENTORS) apart from the witch-y Stacey Savage, the main woman and voice of the band. And in case you are still wondering what kind of music they play, the answer is plain simple: ’80s classic heavy metal.” – Forgotten Scroll
Silver Talon (Portland, OR)
With a virtuosic guitar attack, a rumbling rhythm section, and powerful, soaring vocals, Portland, Oregon’s Silver Talon is razor sharp and ready to become a major force in heavy metal. In February of 2018, Silver Talon released their first demo track “Devil Machine.” The track offered a small sample of Silver Talon’s ability to masterfully blend hook, melody, and technical ability into fist clenching, head-bangable heavy metal. Their second demo release, “Warrior’s End,” showcases more of Silver Talon’s dexterity in riffs, bent time signatures, and lush melodies.
