The Greater Good of Man marks the return of Pacific Northwest Metal favorites Splintered Throne, albeit transformed by the addition of a powerful female vocalist, Lisa Mann (White Crone/ Contemporary Blues artist). Eight melodic and burning Traditional Metal songs were hammered out over the course of the pandemic, as well as a re-recorded version of their Bic-flicking power ballad Immortal.

Splintered Throne’s epic new album The Greater Good Of Man was released on August 19th, 2022. An explosion of traditional metal, with melodic elements and heartfelt ballads woven in, the record is a thrilling onslaught of driving riffs and soaring vocals.

Frontwoman Lisa Mann comments:

«This album is Splintered Throne`s first as a female-fronted band, and I am so proud to now be fronting this group of badass musicians. We put our heart and souls into making this record- I’m beyond stoked for this release».

The traditional metal powerhouse from Portland, Oregon, are beginning their next chapter by unleashing the high-octane record The Greater Good Of Man. Refining their classic metal sound fused with progressive hard rock and striking melodies, Splintered Throne have created a majestic and vivacious release.

«I still pinch myself that I’m even in this band- and now we’ve written and recorded a kick ass album? It’s as good a feeling as sex and chocolate. Can’t wait to unleash it upon the world!».

Well known for their high energy live performances, and having supported the likes of Flotsam & Jetsam, Primal Fear, Lita Ford ,and more, The Greater Good of Man sees the band distill their captivating sound. Following the departure of vocalist and founding member Brian Garrison, two-time Blues Music Award winner and European Blues Award nominee Lisa Mann stepped into the role. Lisa was by no means a stranger to the world of metal having released her heavy debut album under the pseudonym of White Crone receiving raving reviews in the underground scene.

Despite the pandemic disrupting initial plans, the band have produced an astounding new record. Opening with the enthralling The Reaper is Calling, Splintered Throne bring a high-spirited energy into the deadly track. Channeling their melodic essence, this opening number aptly establishes the mood of the album. The title track, The Greater Good Of Man delivers bluesy influences with dynamic bass, groove rhythms, and soaring vocals. Yielding a thrilling pace of high-speed riffs, and unrelenting energy, the epic lyrical narrative of Night Of The Heathens draws the listener into the storytelling. Also included on the album is a moving re-recorded version of the power-ballad Immortal.

The Greater Good of Man is the eagerly anticipated next milestone in Splintered Throne career. Showcasing compelling composition and genre fusion across the tracks, the album is a dynamic collection of energy, emotion and storytelling.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7417 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
