We are pleased to present to you a killer melodic metal song from Jeff Black featuring James Dellbridge of Lycanthro on guest vocals. Enjoy the “Silence”!
From Jeff Black:
This one goes out to everyone who lost touch with their muse last year. This song was written and recorded in spring 2021 while reflecting on how isolated and uncertain I felt during 2020. Despite the bleak theme, it’s a song that ends on a hopeful and self-affirming note and I truly believe that better days are ahead of us.
I also had the honor of being joined by my friend James Delbridge (LYCANTHRO) behind the mic. He’s a rising powerhouse of a vocalist and I had a blast developing the vocals with him. Huge thanks to him, Joe Lyko and Jade Weekes for their work on the video, Metal-Rules for hosting us and to YOU for watching.
From James of Lycanthro:
“Silence is such a beautiful song and Jeff really knocked it out of the park with the songwriting and production. I was absolutely honoured when we asked me to help him bring this track to life and this song was oen of the most fun songs ive ever worked on vocally. Cant wait to share this monolith with the power metal heads of the world!”
Taking the idea of a one man show to the next level, power metal power house Jeff Black has undertaken the ambitious offering of releasing a single each month for an entire year! Featuring guests from premiere power metal and traditional heavy metal acts such as: Adamantis, Lycanthro, Seven Sisters and Greyhawk, Black knows how to create powerful collaborations and bring the heavy.
Heavily inspired by classic heavy metal bands such as Helloween, Blind Guardian and Avantasia as well as progressive metal like Fates Warning, Vola and Queensryche, you can expect each single to take a different turn.
Black brings precision, balance and energy into each single. The Gatekeeper founder turned solo side hustler, not only performs but records everything himself bringing a sense of personality completely unique to him.
