Conceived in Toledo OH with a home base in sister city Detroit, Silent Lions are the sinister two-some of Heavy Soul. Dean Tartaglia simultaneously plays Effected Octave Bass, Sampled Synths, and Manipulated Atmospheric Vocals, all while drummer Matt Klein grooves and thrashes beside him, often providing soulful singalong melodies and harmonies. Silent Lions’ live shows sound as thick and creamy as they do on record. Their music has been tagged as “Heavy Soul”, “Chill Punk”, and “Hall and Oates Stoner Rock.”
