Bassil Silver | Vic Firth Drum Set Artist

Bassil Silver


Without a doubt, Bassil Silver plays in the nerdiest band the modern world has ever seen. Powerglove, named in homage to the 80’s Nintendo controller, plays adaptations of popular video game, cartoon and movie themes infused with the speed, power, and overblown grandiosity of heavy metal. Bassil began playing drums at the age of 8, and has since developed a very powerful and blazing fast playing style. Attending Berklee College of Music as a Music Production & Engineering major, Bassil had the opportunity to study under such drummers as Mike Mangini, Jackie Santos and Tony “Thunder” Smith, as well as learn the techniques he applied to engineering and mixing Powerglove’s records.
