In the summer of 2004, Markus Johansson sent a message to Johnny Rox via the Megadeth message boards, to see if he would like to get together and jam. After working together in various projects for the next two years, the pair set out to record what would ultimately become the Sylencer debut album. By May 2006, the tracking of their debut album began, with Sylencer recruiting drummer Kevin Talley, and lead guitarist Larry Tarnowski to round out the recording lineup. As the majority of the album was recorded by years end, hard economic times started to befall the band. But refusing to give up on the album, Markus and Johnny used their downtime to slowly but surely recruit more guests to the album’s lineup, which grew to include members of Dream Theater, Anthrax, Dethklok, and nearly a dozen others.
In December 2011, the band landed a licensing and distribution deal with dPulse Recordings/Ovrtone Music Group, Inc. in association with Sony Music Entertainment Germany. This led to the album’s finally receiving a release date, September 4, 2012, some six years since the project’s start. 2012 also saw the addition of drummer Kevin Talley as a permanent member of the band, as well as the founding of the band’s label, Sylencer Records, Inc., which is handling the album’s release in tandem with dPulse Recordings, and Sony Music Entertainment Germany. Upon the release of their debut album, “A Lethal Dose Of Truth,” the band intends to take to road and tour just as relentlessly as they pursued their album’s completion. On April 17, 2013 the band announced that a number of guest appearances for their sophomore album have been confirmed, including current and former members of Chimaira, Jag Panzer, King Diamond, Death, Forbidden, Korn and Megadeth.
