Hailing from Calgary, AB, a new legion of power metal thrash has come forward to tell stories of mythology and legends with their debut album “Beyond The Depths” due out January 3rd, 2020.
Produced by the band and mixed by Jesse Kopala (Incite Audio) plus mastered by Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, He Is Legend, Scale The Summit), SYRYN’s “Beyond The Depths” is over 30 minutes of epic tales through twelve adventurous tracks.
Following their 2017 debut single, ‘Unbreakable’, SYRYN shares the powerful grandiose shredding lead single off the upcoming full length, ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’. The track tells the story of an all-powerful Siren pulling out of her dungeon, the Pirates she has captured. Defeated, the Pirates are forced to kneel in surrender and with one swift swipe of a blade, they are deprived of existence and the seas are turned to red.
SYRYN was founded by vocalist Sloan Voxx after seeing Amanda Kiernan of Into Eternity perform at Calgary Metalfest IV in 2015. After that performance, Sloan was inspired to set off on creating a band that would be able to enchant, captivate and trigger emotion, with shredding power metal and the Mythological folklore of the Siren with an added twist. Setting out on her search to find members, the lineup you see today is solidified by Paulo Rage (Guitar), Byron Gorieu (Guitar), Lyxx Rose (Bass) and Bryan Campbell (Drums).
Since their inception in 2017, SYRYN has made lots of waves on the Western Canadian metal scene appearing on various festivals such as Decimate, Loud As Hell along with being scheduled to perform on 2020’s Hyperspace in Vancouver, BC on April 18th alongside Unleash The Archers, Silver Talon, Viathyn and more. SYRYN has also been recognized by Calgary’s local music industry, nominated earlier this year for a YYC Music Award for “Metal Recording of the Year”.
Set to kick off 2020 with the seducing melodic power thrash of “Beyond The Depths”, vocalist Sloan adds: “‘Beyond The Depths’ is a conceptual album that takes you on a journey through the eyes of a Siren. Her menacing instincts enticing her to lure sailors/pirates, torture them and kill them. This Siren, however, starts to develop humanity, which causes an internal struggle for her. The storyline allows you to be with her through this battle, its tribulations and emotions. To imagine what one would feel when faced with these situations and what decisions they might make. Will she succumb to her natural impulses, or will she fight with benevolence to be what she is to believe she is not?”
