New Jersey native best known as bassist for progressive metal giants Symphony X, Mike LePond now presents his first solo project ever: Mike LePond's Silent Assassins, an onslaught of raw and true HEAVY METAL in it's purest form. His debut self-titled release is a full hour of headbanging riffs, kick ass vocals and epic tales. It is an album that draws influences from the classic heavy bands of the 1980s, all the way to the Viking/Folk metal of today. It was made "for" metalheads, "by" metalheads. A celebration of the power and glory of that which we call........Heavy Metal.
