Twist Of Fate is a significant step forward for Silent Tiger, refining their signature sound to deliver a perfect synthesis of melody and power, solidifying their position as a formidable force in the world of AOR music.
Silent Tiger is a powerhouse band that crosses continents like it does musical territory. Guitarist Jean Funes and drummer Joal Mejia hail from Honduras, joined by American vocalist David Cagle, and augmented by Sweden’s Andreas Passmark (W.E.T., Royal Hunt) on bass, keyboardist Mikael Blanc, and Mats Ericsson from Degreed. Their new album, Twist Of Fate, is pure AOR perfection, adorned with electrifying hooks and dynamic arrangements that showcase the band's undeniable passion for the music. The songs wouldn’t sound out of place blasting out of your FM radio alongside the glory day hits of Journey or Styx, but still manage to sound fresh and not trapped in times past.
Twist Of Fate doesn't just feature a stellar lineup of players; it also benefits from the expert touch of Ericsson, who not only contributes to the keyboards but also handles the mix, ensuring a sound that resonates with unparalleled quality. And standout tracks like "Shadows Of Life," "Last Of The True Believers," and "Wings Of A Dream" exemplify the album's impressive songwriting craftsmanship.
Silent Tiger, formed in 2018, set out to shoot for the stars and conquer the world of melodic hard rock, drawing inspiration from giants like Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Dokken, and Scorpions, at the same time attempting to bring that classic sound up to date. Their 2020 debut, Ready For Attack, with singles like "Chasing The Wind" and "Tearing Me Apart," showcased a guitar-heavy sound tinged with the influence of glam rock. The new album not only retains that thunderous and powerful essence but elevates it to new heights. With a resounding roar, Twist Of Fate announces Silent Tiger’s arrival as true contenders in the world of melodic hard rock. It’s AOR excellence at its finest, served up with a side of unbridled intensity.
