Sons of Silver - 'World On Fire'
Written by Ionas Finser & Staff
“World On Fire” is exciting and high octane from the very first moment, as passionate octave guitars barrel in with expressive ostinatos above an excellent drum line. Peter Argyropoulos introduces us to his fierce, gritty vocals that master enough gruffness to be interesting, yet retain the perfect amount of clarity.
The song is uniquely hypnotic, consisting of crazy ambiance around every corner. If you like having your mind blown, just wait for the bridge and guitar solo. The overall mood begs a kind of urgency, all while seducing listeners with beautifully epic emotions.
Sons of Silver voice a harsh critic of today’s society in their lyrics. They use a rich knowledge of history to their advantage in order to provide exciting, memorable lines at every step. Every word and phrase speaks to the overall urgency and passion that the music so naturally delivers.
“Shake down like we haven’t seen since 1939 Berlin Enemies manufactured in a rage of zero tolerance”
I can’t remember the last band I heard with so much talent and passion. Sons of Silver seem to have an infinite vocabulary of psychedelic, hard-hitting sounds on their palette. Combined with a fierce fury against modern society, there’s no telling what this band can achieve and inspire. I eagerly await their next release. Listen on Spotify Sons of Silver are available on most major digital outlets.

About Sons of Silver
The most memorable music remains the most human. It makes a connection on a physical and emotional level by displaying life’s blood, sweat and tears. It mirrors the experiences and amplifies the voices of its creators. Through real instrumentation, raw delivery and honest stories, Los Angeles quintet Sons Of Silver— featuring Peter “Pete RG” Argyropoulos [vocals, guitar], Brina Kabler [keyboards, vocals], Adam Kury [bass], Dave Krusen [drums], and Kevin Haaland [lead guitar]—strikes a personal chord.
“We’re truly a band, first and foremost. We’re collectively making music. It’s an old school approach. Get several musicians in a room together and capture a moment. All of that creates something rich and diverse. Something human.”
Under the previous name “Pete RG”, the group quietly attracted an impassioned fan base worldwide, and the band toured extensively across North America playing major markets like Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston and New York. They also crossed the Atlantic, hitting London, Paris and Berlin, among others.
After two years on the road, the sound evolved, as did the identity. What began as a solo artist had evolved into a band. Changing from the name Pete RG to Sons of Silver was a natural progression. There’s still a connection to Peter as the front man, since Argyropoulos roughly translates to ‘Son of Silver’ in Greek. “The new songs capture all of our voices. It’s louder. It’s evolved from being centered around one person’s outlook to multiple outlooks meshing together. Sons of Silver make rock ‘n’ roll of the most human variety.
“When you listen to us, I’d like for you to be actively inspired. Hopefully, our music encourages people to be conscious and self-aware of the impact they leave on each other and the world.”
