I'm running CMUCL 18d, too, yet I get this:

	% cmucl -quiet -load baz.x86f
	; Loading #p"/u/rpw3/.cmucl-init".
	Hello, world!

I'm guessing that you don't have an accessible init file in your
home directory (e.g., "init.lisp" or ".cmucl-init"), or you'd get
the message, too. I believe the suppression done by "-quiet" occurs
*after* any init file is loaded (though before any "-load" is processed),
which it why this doesn't cut it either:

	% cmucl -quiet -init baz.x86f 
	; Loading #p"/u/rpw3/baz.x86f".
	Hello, world!

But by combining our suggestions we get the following, which *is*
silent (even if one has an accessible init file):

	% cmucl -noinit -quiet -load baz.x86f
	Hello, world!
