It’s been a winding road for Portland trad-metallers Splintered Throne since their inception in the early ‘10s. Following two albums and all the usual things bands do after releasing records, but not making a living off their art, founding member and vocalist Brian Garrison packed up his mic and mic stand and bid his pals adieu. His replacement ended up changing not just the face, but the tone and timbre of the band. In Lisa Mann, Splintered Throne found itself fronted by a two-time Blues Music Award winner and European Blues Award nominee with experience as a metal howler via her White Crone solo project. This is the roundabout way of saying Splintered Throne found themselves an experienced and practiced howler to blast off the second phase of the band. Then came the pandemic which, as you may have heard, put plans and scheduling everywhere on pause, if not fucked everything completely. Falling victim to that lube-less rogering was Splintered Throne’s third album, The Greater Good of Man. But with the time afforded them, they worked and tinkered on the album creating a more satisfactory result. - Decibel Magazine

Traditional Heavy Metal Band Splintered Throne ’s high energy performances have captivated audiences on the US West Coast for over a decade. When original vocalist Brian Garrison left in 2019, Lisa Mann ( White Crone ) stepped forward to transform the band into a female fronted juggernaut. Bassist Brian Bailey is the longest running member of the band, followed by guitarist/songwriter Jason Moser and drummer Kris Holboke, and blistering new guitarist Matt Dorado ( Earth To Ashes ). The band has supported some of the very best including Primal Fear, Metal Church, P.O.D. Lita Ford, Armored Saint, Tony MacAlpine, Gary Hoey, Points North, Sanctuary , and many more.
Their new album, " The Greater Good of Man " (releasing Aug 19th) marks the post-pandemic return of this Pacific Northwest Metal favorite. Eight melodic and burning songs were hammered out over the course of the pandemic, as well as a re-recorded version of their Bic-flicking power ballad "Immortal," written in memory of Lemmy Kilmister . Packed with memorable melodies, heavy riffage, and high-energy performances, this album reflects myriad influences ranging from Power Metal, Melodic Hard Rock , and Bay Area Thrash . This is an album for headbangers and horn raisers!
