Splintered Throne (Feat. Lisa Mann From White Crone) - The Greater Good Of Man - Reviewed By Metal Digest ! Check it out here at this link: https://metal-digest.com/2022/08/24/splintered-throne-the-greater-good-of-man/
When a new vocalist steps into a band, it can take some time for not only the fanbase to accept the changes, but also the band to adapt to these alterations. One band are Splintered Throne, who in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic acquired Lisa Mann for the vocal spot and now have unleashed their latest album ‘The Greater Good of Man’.
What Splintered Throne have released here with ‘The Greater…’ is an absolute stormer of a release. This is a powerful delivery of old-school heavy metal/hard rock which reaches back into the past to give a huge nostalgic hug to the listener. Now, this isn’t done in some vintage gear throwback to 1976, yes, there’s a huge Ronnie James Dio era Rainbow sound going on here and there’s even a touch of Angel Witch, but also one where tracks such as ‘Time Stands Still’, ‘The Reaper is Calling’ and ‘Morning Star Rising’ have the modern touch of Lucifer, Haunt, Cauldron and White Crone. The latter is hardly surprising because of Lisa Mann, who’s vocal performance on ‘The Greater…’ really does make this album stand out from the rest of the heavy metal/hard rock bands out there giving this release a real je ne said quoi.
Splintered Throne have released not just their best album, but also one of the best heavy metal albums of the year. In a justified world, ‘The Greater…’ would be massive, but it’s as independent release this will be relatively difficult to get hold of, but it is well worth the hunt. So, for fuck’s sake someone sign this band! - Metal Digest

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!
