Silent Tiger - Ready For Attack

Recommended Posts

From melodicrock.com:

SILENT TIGER is the next exciting chapter in the musical journey for MRR’s own Jean Funes, founding member and guitarist of Sound Of Eternity and Hearts On Fire.

With HOF vocalist Richard Andermyr working on new RIAN material this year, Jean asked to be put to work and who better to work with than another stalwart of MRR, vocalist David Cagle.

Together, along with master drummer Joel Mejia (Hearts On Fire), the trio forms SILENT TIGER.

 

SILENT TIGER are:

Jean Funes - Lead and Rhythm Guitars, Acoustic Guitar (Sound Of Eternity)

David Cagle - Vocals (Northrup Cagle, LastWorld)

Joel Mejia - Drums (Hearts On Fire, Codigo Eterno)

 

With:

Andreas Passmark - Bass

Dennis Ward - Keyboards

Jonas Oijvall - Keyboards

 

Jean Funes comments: “It has been a pleasure working with David on this album. He adds that amazing and powerful soulful voice and takes every song to another level. We’ve been working for months on the songs and its wonderful how the songs have developed naturally and have taken life on their own.  This album is going to have the right edge to it, but at the same time plenty of melody and uplifting songs. You will hear elements of Def Leppard, Van Halen, Dokken, Motley Crue, Europe and more, because every one of these bands are a big influence to us, but I think Silent Tiger is very original with its approach to rock music.”

Nello Dell’omo continued the family affair by once again creating band’s great logo and the cover artwork, which will be revealed shortly.

It is MRR and Silent Tiger’s pleasure to debut their first ever song, one which sets up the sound of the coming album. Please enjoy ‘Chasing The Wind’ in its entirety:

I listened to this one today.  While not quite as good as Jean and Joel's other recent project, Hearts on Fire, it's still a solid release.   If you liked either of the promo tracks it's worth checking out as those are a good representation of the quality and style of the rest of the album.

I was one of those who pre ordered this way back in September.   It was released February 21......today is March 19 and I'm still waiting for my "pre ordered" copy direct from Melodicrock records!!!!!

Not dreadful, but only a couple of keepers on this one. I think 'Dream come true' pretty much sums this album up. Drops in with that big stadium filling musical intro... That sounds like it was put together on a tape deck. Drops into a big stadium sing along chorus, that sounds like me singing in the shower. 

There's some okay ideas on this, but for the most part it's very limply put together and incredibly forgettable. :(

Hey Delbert - all pre-order CDs have now shipped. The new MRR guys I partnered with screwed up this and we now have some conversations to have to ensure this never happens again. Very pissed off, sorry!

Can I quote your review for my next round of publicity?

This is somewhat decent overall but weirdly no replay value,

what I mean is I can live with couple of songs like 'Start Again' and 'Come To Me' and don't mind if the rest are playing at the background while I'm working, but also don't mind either if those are not to be played ever

Despite my above commentary I think was the closest they got to getting it right;

    • These guys actually released a nice EP called 'The Walls Between You & I' last year which was a good jam with some good tunes. But they've bettered themselves with an even more impressive new EP release this year. It's called 'Fake Smiles' and has these songs; 1    .    Life for Me 2    .    Without Her 3    .    Nvrb 4    .    Out of Touch 5    .    Freefall   They also made a pretty unflattering video for one of my favourite tunes on the EP;   Love this one too;   Which kinda has similarities to this massive earworm from their 2019 EP;  
    • Despite my above commentary I think was the closest they got to getting it right;  
    • Good new sound and a solid album, but overall it's probably going to be mostly another pass for me... as per recent efforts. The songs just don't have any longevity for me. I do love one song on it which is this;  
    • Pretty frustrating album. I actually feel like, song-wise, it's a pretty good album. But I am so turned off by the poor demo sound quality I can't really give it a proper go. Irritating, as I think there's an okay product here, but it sounds like absolute shit. 
    • Yep, ridiculously average album. 'Another Life Another Time' is an okay tune, but otherwise this ranges from terrible to bad. Very, very forgettable album. 
    • Pretty solid album with a pretty good sound, but none of the songs really do too much for me so it was sadly a pass for me.
    • Really, really average album. 'Still Close to My Heart' is a pretty decent stab at a commercial balladic number. But the rest is extremely forgettable. 'Steal your heart' was okay too... 
    • Pretty weak album, but I liked the opener, which is 'So bad.' Good song. Elsewhere I like 'Never say never' and 'My hometown' and there is potential with these guys. But overall, it leaves a lot to be desired.  
    • Only one listen in to this so it's early days, and I feel like this will grow wonderfully too. But I heard this one today and it's possibly the most interested in a modern rock release I've been for a few years. The first song hooked me immediately and I found myself really digging what these dudes were doing. Some cool lyrics and an emotive vocal delivery throughout. Don't know if others will dig it, but I loved this right off the bat.   01. Bright 02. Concealed 03. Twentyfourseven 04. Awakening 05. Gravity 06. Transition 07. Amnesia 08. Mindset 09. Oblivion 10. Worst Of Me The single;   The song that hooked me;
