SYRYN (Siren) –
In Greek mythology, the Sirens were dangerous creatures, who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island. Calgary based metal band combining the roots of Blues, the domination of Power Metal and the rapid shreds of Thrash. SYRYN will seduce and entice you with mysterious and menacing melodies, captivating vocals and swift drum attacks.
Comprised of 5 members, Sloan Voxx, Lyxx Rose, Byron Gorieu, Bryan Campbell, and Paulo Rage, SYRYN hit the ground running. With a wide variety of inspirations including, but not limited to Aretha Franklin, Battle Beast, Megadeth, Rush, Kalmah, and Dio, SYRYN's music is hard to pinpoint genre-wise. "Their music is unpredictable. You don't know what's coming next, and that's what I love about it!".
SYRYN Released their first single, "Unbreakable" in December of 2017.
" “Unbreakable” comes in like gang busters from the very first note. The senses become infused with the haunting darkness that wants to possess your ears, and it demands your soul. I am captivated with every bass and drum beat which becomes intertangled with strong feminine vocals that speaks directly to me. Women have always faced challenges in any industry, let alone the metal genre, and yet here we are with the band Syryn featuring Sloan Voxx on vocals and their war cry for anyone needing that justifiable push towards righteousness on their own behalf or others. The guitars are sweet, fast, precise and impressively very Iron Maiden-ish.
Overall, the entire musicianship impressed me. I actually got goosebumps listening to “Unbreakable.” This band reinforces the notion that metal talent is alive and well in Calgary, AB with bands like Syryn on the scene. I for one am excited and looking forward to listening to their upcoming EP or album in the near future. "

Their second single, "Paradise for Demise was released nearly a year later, in anticipation of the
full album release in Spring/Summer of 2019.
"The Canadian West metal community has created many exceptionally talented bands, as is the case with the band SYRYN.
My old school taste of hard rock and metal music reverberates within the notes and melodics from SYRYN.
When listening to "Paradise For Demise", I particularly liked the climactic escalation of the song progression filled with headbanging vocal ranges and heavy driven riffs in "Paradise For Demise". " - Ingrid Newton, Metal Master Kingdom
