Silver Mountain: Roses & Champagne and Breakin Chains





SILVER MOUNTAIN

For fans of: Yngwie J. Malmsteen, Rainbow, Stratovarius & Dragon Force

Originally hailing from Malmo in Sweden in 1978, Silver Mountain were very much inspired by Deep Purple, Judas Priest and the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal, but especially Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow, from where the band took their name. Fundamental to the birth of classically inspired symphonic hard rock and heavy metal, a scene that also gave the world Yngwie J. Malmsteen and Europe, they evolved around lead guitarist Jonas Hansson
