News : Silent Knight vocalist parts ways with the band.

By on October 15, 2019

It has unfortunately come to our attention and the shock of many in the power metal realm that, Jesse Onur Oz, long time vocalist of West Australian power metal ensemble Silent Knight has parted ways with the band. The announcement was made via the band’s official Facebook page in which Jesse shared the following message.

Since a long while I have not been in a good place and this weekend just topped it off to a point where after all those years of pain and sacrifice, I felt I cannot continue anymore and it turns out, I am not able to attend to international headliner in Indonesia, Bugger.. so sad..
With great regret, I resigned from Silent Knight to find myself once again.

I am wishing all the best to my brothers in arms. I am confident and I know they have no trouble moving forward, I would be even more depressed without live metal especially power metal in my life, I don’t know how will I move forward at this point, I don’t know if I can ever get so lucky to find such power metal band again. Nevertheless, it’s not fair to hold them back due to my downward spiralling state of mind at the moment.

I want to return back to my own originals in my own pace and maybe continue Edforce1 too. A bit of uncertainty surrounds my head at the moment.

Cameron Nicholas and Stu McGill, thank you for bearing with me all these years. I want you to become a real big band as you deserve and make me proud as I’ve busted my ass all these years together with you to be where we are today. I do not take what you have given me for granted and I hope the same exists for you. All the best and keep going forward!

Silent Knight recently finished up a supporting Turilli / Lione Rhapsody‘s in Melbourne this past Sunday alongside Black Majesty, Vanishing Point and other prolific metal bands from Melbourne and interstate.

The band went on to say.

The band would like to thank Jesse for the efforts and sacrifices he has made to help us get to this point. Jesse came in at a tough time and helped propel us forward with his enthusiasm and willingness to be part of the team. He is definitely a favourite among the fans and has left his mark with great performances on 2 albums, 2 EPs and singles.

It wasn’t an easy job but we are proud of what we achieved together. We have forged memories and a history that can’t be taken away so we thank you again for everything mate. All the best with the future and I’m sure we’ll cross paths and share a stage again.

Due to the recent change in the band, there is no confirmation, as of yet, if Silent Knight will have a replacement vocalist for their appearance at November Rain Festival in Indonesia this November.

Everyone at Metal Obsession wishes Jesse the best of luck in his future endeavours. To find out more about Silent Knight, head to the band’s official Facebook page.
