Voices of Extreme – “Call My Name”
VOICES OF EXTREME celebrates their bassist Steven G. Knight’s birthday with their new release “Call My Name”. “We wanted to do something special for Steven and let everyone know to join in the celebration of his birthday on April 24 and we figured what better way than to combine it with our brand new release says Don Chaffin, lead vocalist/guitarist for the band. Voices of Extreme is a power trio hailing from New York and has just finished a tour with Geoff Tate from Queensryche and currently planning their summer touring schedule. The band’s history dates back to 2004 with it’s inception and now proudly lists it’s members as Don Chaffin (Lead Vocalist/Guitarist), Steven G. Knight (Bass) and Bobby Marks (Drums). Steven joined the band in early 2016 and has fortified his position with a powerful ensemble of chops and performance. He has a big fat low end groove that just doesn’t quit says Bobby Marks who himself has lent his mighty backbeat to several national bands throughout the years. Don goes on saying that Steven is a very special person who is passionate about his music and this band and we know that he will be quite flattered when his fans, family members and friends join him in this birthday celebration!

Voices of Extreme – Give Me Your Love
Voices of Extreme create a powerful, orchestral sort of metal that is tremendously reverent to the heavy metal of the eighties and nineties while coming forth with a clarity and focused sound that works well in current circles. Give Me Your Love is their current single (video below), keeping viewers on the edges of their seat through engrossing narrative and an intricate instrumentation that continually surprises fans with every subsequent listen. The two-part vocal harmony and responding guitar work at the two minute mark imbues Give Me Your Love with an energy that will keep fans on the edges of their seats until the effort’s final note.

Former ANTHRAX Guitarist DAN SPITZ Joins VOICES OF EXTREME
Former ANTHRAX guitarist Dan Spitz has joined VOICES OF EXTREME, the band led by his longtime collaborator Don Chaffin (RED LAMB). Recording has already started for a new six-song EP, to be followed by live shows in all parts of the world.
Says Spitz: “This powerful and crushing quartet is reminiscent of nothing before, but does fall into the realm of STONE SOUR, SHINEDOWN meets SOUNDGARDEN with a slamming riff master twisting it to a completely new level of new guitar tones, sounds, tapestries and emotional rides. I pray it brings much love to all.”
He adds: “There will be more announcements regarding other Christian movements, and projects I am entering into forthcoming that will certainly impact the world once again, and those involved with me are certainly a loving force of historical and legendary proportion.”
In addition to Spitz and Chaffin, VOICES OF EXTREME features Steve Nichols (SOLITUDE AETURNUS, GODFEAR) on drums and Steven G. Knight on bass

VOICES OF EXTREME – BREAK THE SILENCE
VOICES OF EXTREME has a modern day rock formula with AOR influences and radio friendly appeal. But they have a heavier edge that separates them from the homogenized pre-packaged radio ga ga. V.O.X.?s influences range from METALLICA thrash riffs to G N? R dirty rock ?n? roll to GODSMACK?s accessibility to NICKLEBACK?s songwriting qualities. The album includes rockers, ballads, softer melodies, ripping solos and a pounding rhythm section. I can picture most of these songs rocking out on the radio to uninformed but surprised listeners.
Vocalist Don Chaffin is the sparkling diamond in this batch of gems, often sounding like a cross between Chris Cornell, Robert Plant and Lenny Wolf. Their lineup also includes guitarist Nick Gertsson, drummer John Macaluso (ARK, TNT, Yngwie Malmsteen), and bassist Bob Brennan. On this release, V.O.X. has added guitarist David Mercado to their line up.
There’s a lot to like about Break the Silence. If you’re into this type of rock with powerful, emotive vocals, then Break the Silence is for you. It?s so catchy and it rocks.
