The main men behind SILVER are singer Gary Barden who already worked for MSG, STATETROOPER and PRAYING MANTIS, and guitarist Michael Voss (DEMON DRIVE, CASANOVA, MAD MAX, ex-BONFIRE), and they are about to release their 5th album called “Gold”.

If you are into Melodic Rock and Hard Rock, you better check SILVER out because; this album has a lot to offer. SILVER got a strong feel for melodies and memorable choruses that should satisfy most Melodic Rock fans out there. The whole thing sounds very professional and outstanding songs to be mentioned are the rockin’ opener “Creep”, “Joshua”, as well as the DAVID BOWIE cover “China Girl”.

Some of the songs here on “Gold” are very polished but I can live with that because, they make their songs sound fresh and enjoyable, and very easy to consume. One thing is for sure… I have to check out their back catalogue.  

Recommended tracks: “Creep”, Joshua”, “China Girl”, and “Save Me”.
