Silver Gallery are a sludge metal band based in Marseille, France, It was formed in 2002 by Patrick Ingoglia (drums), Mitch De La Vega (bass) , Stephane Girard (guitar) and Laurent Marchet (voice; Ex-TCHYZKOK, Ex-ONE MILLION GRAVITY).
Before Laurent’s departure to (and eventually overstay and deportation from) New York City, the band played a few gigs with local bands such as Flavor and Rescue Rangers, then renamed itself Elephant Coliseum and enrolled Julien as the new singer. After a couple of years, Laurent came back and the band renamed itself Silver Gallery.
The original Line up then decided to engage on more rough musical paths looking towards Eyehategod, Iron Monkey, Neurosis kind of bad vibes.
Then a first self-released 10” was issued in 2013 (which can be played on: silvergallery.bandcamp.com)
In 2016, Stephane left and the band asked Sebastien Galliot (currently playing guitars for Moon Ra, and Ex : Kulfi, Nnecra Packê, One Million Gravity, Ufo Gestapo, Transatlantic Rat’s Atom) to replace him in prevision of an opening gig opportunity with Monolord. The thrill was high enough for Sebastien who has remained in the band since then.
So far the band has been enjoying opening for the following bands: KARMA FOR COMMUNITY, RESCUE RANGERS, HOLLY FROST, MONARCH !, GOZU, PYLONE, FILLETTE, MAGNETO, FILTHY CHARITY, STONEBIRDS, WATER PIPE CULT, UFOMAMMUT, MONOLORD, CONGER! CONGER!, POUTRE, CLYSTONE, MUDRIVER, DAHUZ
