Splintered Throne started up in 2006 as a project encompassing everything from death metal to rock and pop music. Founded by guitarist Jonathan Schlosser and vocalist Brian Garrison, the band over time began to transition into more of a hard rock vibe with the loss of Doug Parks on drums and the addition of Yves Prince. Having made several line up changes through the years, two remaining original members that continue to carry the ST torch are vocalist Brian Garrison and bassist Brian Bailey. In the summer of 2010, Brian Garrison made a key decision to change up the ranks with a much more defined melodic power metal sound and image for the band. This started by bringing on Jason Moser (AKA J-Mo) on guitar who would replace Jonathan and Kris Holboke on drums. J-Mo’s background in speed and thrash metal combined with the progressive-mixed-with-thrash drumming of Kris has put the band in a sound liking to such European bands like Primal Fear, Edguy, and Firewind while retaining the American sounds of classic thrash acts such as Death Angel, Anthrax, and Old School Metallica. In 2013 the addition of Fred Osborn as a second guitar player gives Splintered Throne that twin lead guitar attack that combines both trade off solos and harmonys akin to Iron Maiden and Thin Lizzy. In addition to well over an hour of original material, the band does “Splintered” covers of classic rock and 80′s tunes transforming them into the modern power metal sound and style.
Homage video of our song Immortal. This is to honor the memory and pay respect to all those we’ve lost over the years as we keep their music alive. RIP to our brothers and sisters of Rock ‘N Roll past.
