dPulse Recordings / Ovrtone Music Group, Inc., and distribution partners NEO MCC GmbH/ Sony Music Entertainment Germany are pleased to announce the addition of Sylencer to our growing family of artists for the European market.
Featuring guests performances by Rob Caggiano (Anthrax); Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater); Brendon Small (Dethklok); Gene Hoglan (Fear Factory) and a roll call of many other top names in metal, prog and thrash. The yet un-named Sylencer debut is the conceptual brainchild of founding members Markus Johansson (Lead Vocals / Lead Guitar) and Johnny Rox (Bass Guitar).
Scheduled for release in Europe early Summer 2012, the album is currently in post-production at legendary Ocean Way Studios, Hollywood, CA.
The much-anticipated LP is produced by Christian Olde Wolbers (Arkaea, Fear Factory); Orlando Villasenor and mastered by Maor Applebaum (Halford; Yngwie Malmsteen).
A North American release of the debut album from Sylencer is also expected later in 2012 and an aggressive 2012-13 tour schedule is in the planning.
