"Prepare to enter the sonic equivalent of Valhalla, where glory is won with axes in hand; axes bearing six strings that pour forth thundering metal into the moody skies of some long forgotten time." - BeatRoute (AB)
Osyron is a symphonic metal band based in Calgary, Alberta. The group consists of vocalist Reed, guitarists Krzysztof Stalmach and Bobby Harley, bassist Tyler Corbett, and drummer Cody Anstey. Bridging the gap between traditional European metal and the music of their homegrown contemporaries, Osyron has a sound all their own.
The band's origins can be traced back to Ontario, where they began under the name Morbid
Theory. They released their first demo, Chaos Breed, in 2006 and performed alongside acts including: Norther, Protest the Hero, Threat Signal, and The Agonist. They recorded a follow-up demo, Harbinger, and released it in 2010.
After that release, the band underwent some changes in membership, scenery, and identity. Moving to Alberta in 2012, the group, now rechristened Osyron, re-recorded Harbinger in Calgary, and released the album in 2013.
"Surprises like this are why Heavy Metal has been such an enduring part of my life. "
