Bio

Hailing from the isolated landscapes of Perth, Western Australia SILENT KNIGHT are a new breed of traditional power metal breathing new life into the genre heavily influenced by the European kings of heavy metal HELLOWEEN, IRON MAIDEN, GAMMA RAY & BLIND GUARDIAN combined with the aggressive speed of ICED EARTH, STORMWARRIOR and MEGADETH.


Climbing the ranks of Perth's metal scene since 2011, SILENT KNIGHT gained nation wide recognition in November 2012 when the band were chosen to be apart of Steel Assassins Festival - Australia's premier traditional/power metal fest in Sydney.

SILENT KNIGHT were then chosen to support ex-IRON MAIDEN legends Blaze Bayley and Paul Dianno in Perth on their co-headline 2012 Australia tour.

In February 2013 the band released their debut album 'Masterplan'. The album was mixed and mastered by Dan Grainger (DeathFuckingCunt, Beyond Terror Beyond Grace) at Maelstrom Studios in Perth. The album is a solid mix of   traditional and power metal that encompasses a story of how SILENT KNIGHT came to be. Guitarist, Stu McGill explains.

'Back in 2010 I drew up a master plan of what I felt was the recipe for a successful traditional power metal band in Australia. When I meet lead guitarist, Cameron Nicholas by chance we become the best of friends. Believing in the plan I showed him, Cameron and I begun writing material together.

Finding quality band members happened by chance when we discovered the talents of vocalist Zoran Cunjak and drummer Paul Wrigley, who at the time recently moved to Australia. Bassist, Cameron Daw soon followed and thus SILENT KNIGHT was born. Everything seemed to be fate. Almost like it was meant to be.'

Word has now begun to spread and the album is now stocked not only in Australia but also France, Germany, Greece, Japan and the US.

SILENT KNIGHT are committed to pushing the boundaries of traditional heavy metal in Australia. Offering solid riffs, soaring vocals and epic tales of self empowerment and sorcery.
