THE NEW SPLINTERED THRONE CD IS OUT NOW!!!
January 15th, 2015
We are looking to book shows locally, regionally and nationally for 2015! Contact us here or at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. Don’t forget, we have full PA and lights so we can go just about anywhere. Word on the street is we also have close to 4 hours of both original and cover material that you’d have to hear to believe.
Our own J~Mo will be at the 2015 NAMM show in Anaheim, CA this year. Make sure to say hi if ya see him! Chances are he will be at a Jackson booth sometime during the show. He will be back and ready to rock January 31st at the Tonic Lounge, see you all there!

As we post this Christmas Eve 2014, Splintered Throne would like to wish all of you a Happy Holiday season!! Thanks for supporting the band and we look forward to WAY more things to have for ya to come back to check out in 2015!
That being said, here is our first show of the New Year! The annual and often epic birthday bash for our own Kris and J~Mo, this year with every band on the bill being good friends of ours. Expect a night of powerhouse performances by all!

Head on over to http://www.truemetallives.com/blog1/splintered-throne-the-octagon for another killer review of the Octagon. We are truly humbled and blessed to be getting such rave reviews of the CD. Carrying the torch is hard but we are down for the task!!! Mark over at True Metal Lives has a ton of great underground bands, including some other locals, go check him out and support the scene!
Don’t forget our Dimebag Memorial show Dec. 6th. Lots of cool stuff we are going to debut. We promise the last 30 minutes of the set will be familiar stuff to sing and bang along to!

The Raven show was a total blast! It was awesome to see a sea of ST Shirts in the crowd singing along to every song in our short but tight set. Thanks to all who came out, took vacation days, and travelled from as far as Montana to come see us!
Next up for us is December 1st at Malibu’s in Vancouver for a Dimebag memorial show. This is our first time in this club so c’mon out and let’s show ‘em how our Throne Guard’s roll!! We will be playing an almost two-hour set of ST to include stuff we’ve never done with this lineup, some new covers, and maybe, just maybe, we’ll toss out a few Priest tunes to defend the faith and get you screaming for vengeance!!

We just did a major email address update, so if you got an email from email@example.com and got invited here, welcome!! Take a look, listen to some music, buy a CD and leave a comment! We are also looking for promotional and gig opportunities outside the Portland / Metro area so if you know someone or are someone who can make that happen, pass on our links here and on our other social media outlets(Facebook, Reverbnation, Twitter). You can also pass us on if you are feeling like spreading the METAL!
Our next upcoming show and probably last one in Portland for 2014 is just around the corner on October 30th, hit one of us up for pre-sale tickets for less than you will pay the at the door, it will be a night of good hard and heavy metal with NWOBHM pioneer’s Raven + from SoCal Night Demon, and then locally us, Maniak and Magnabolt. This is a show not to miss!!

Lots of good things have been happening since the CD dropped beginning of the month. We have had a huge amount of plays on our reverbnation page, made a ton of new fans, and booked some shows in October including one in Portland supporting metal legends RAVEN! CD’s have been flying off the shelf not just to the corners of the US but to Hungary, Brazil and Russia!!! We are super stoked and humbled, thanks to you OUR FANS!!

We had an AMAZING time at the GUITARS UNDER THE STARS* festival, meeting and hanging out with some of our musical inspirations as well as seeing new ones. The CROWD was great and the feedback was truly HUMBLING. The MID-WILLAMETTE VALLEY is getting to be a hotbed of OREGON’S homegrown local music and we will likely be back again to be a part of it.
*SPECIAL THANKS TO GARY HOEY, LITA FORD and her crew, PAT TRAVERS and his gang, and the many others we had the honor and privilege to play with: POINTS NORTH, FLOATER, LARRY MITCHELL, TY CURTIS, BRUCE BOULLETT…the list goes on. Lastly, to the event organizers, THANK YOU for letting us be such an integral part!
WE CLOSE THIS POST WITH A PIC OF OUR OWN J~MO MAKING THE FRONT PAGE OF THE LOCAL PAPER!
