Alt-metal band Sterling silver Snakes shaped in 2011 following lead singer Alex Estrada’s previous hardcore band divided. The brand new group — made up of bassist Mike Trujillo, guitarist Jeremiah Bignell, and drummer Garrett Harney — mixed their myriad affects to make a hard rock and roll sound born from the post-’90s weighty alternative picture. Though he previously hardcore origins, Estrada was also affected by Latin music and commercial. The latter educated a lot of their sound, which nods to rings like Sleep, Device, Nine Inch Fingernails, and Ministry, but with today’s hardcore advantage. Their first recording, Pictures of the Floating Globe, debuted an upbeat, starving stream of fury like In the Drive-In nearly ten years before in 2001. The music group grew gradually darker, as sophomore launch, Year from the Snake, revealed a harder, downtempo sludge. In 2016, the music group added light synth components to amp in the commercial influences, creating a gorgeous and brutal crusher comparable to late-era Deftones on third recording Saboteur.
