Silverbox are an up and coming rock band that are proving themselves as they go along. With a growing fan base and a growing number of songs, they are living up to their potential.
There are several bands who have tried to diversify a genre of music that is commonly distorted guitars, a blazing bass, a thunderous drum sound and vocals beyond the point of breathing.
Originating in South West London ‘Silverbox’ is comprised of five members; John Wyse (Vocals), Ryan Hunt (Lead/Rhythm Guitar), Julian Martin Samos (Lead/Rhythm Guitar), Steve Hepburn (Bass) and Kerry Thompson (Drums).
The Silverbox sound palette is as broad as it is long taking influence from the likes of Alterbridge, Audioslave, Biffy Clyro, Black Stone Cherry, Bon Jovi, Clutch, Creed, Kings of Leon, Michael Jackson, Velvet Revolver to name but a few. United by an appreciation for all things rock n roll and authenticity in music, this symphonic cataclysm comes jam packed with all the zest of a champagne supernova. Whether underground, mainstream, hardcore or experimental, nothing is ignored.
Their spirit is raw yet the sound is balanced, here we see authenticity at its primal level, both rich, haunting and beautifully perplex. This sonic tapestry is one bound tightly in spirit, not genre, resembling that of a blistering torrent in anthemic revelry, reflecting the light and depth at the core of the Silverbox soul.
Silverbox, flirt with their delivery whilst pledging an undying allegiance to their conviction. They are both dark, dirty, and at the same time beautifully cleansing.
‘We are thee heirs to our conviction...’
