Woe Of Tyrants

Chillicothe, Ohio’s Woe of Tyrants, simply put, shred; they play metal music with little regard to scenes and sub genres. They are five guys dead-set on playing metal the way they want to and mix the best of death, thrash, and melodeath in a concoction that defies pigeon-holing. Combine the vintage sounds of Testament and Metallica with brutal death metal, add a honest melodic touch, and put some southern fried flair thrown on top, and you have what has become known as Woe of Tyrants.

Chillicothe, Ohio’s Woe of Tyrants, simply put, shred; they play metal music with little regard to scenes and sub genres. They are five guys dead-set on playing metal the way they want to and mix the best of death, thrash, and melodeath in a concoction that defies pigeon-holing. Combine the vintage sounds of Testament and Metallica with brutal death metal, add a honest melodic touch, and put some southern fried flair thrown on top, and you have what has become known as Woe of Tyrants.

Woe of Tyrants began in 2004 with several goals in mind, the main being to create heavy, intelligent music that can promote a positive message alongside a chaotic and technical sound. They released their critically acclaimed debut Behold The Lion through Tribunal Records in June of 2007, and only two months after its release, the band was already in talks with several major players in the independent label market.

In October of 2007, Woe of Tyrants signed a multi-album deal with Metal Blade Records and immediately began writing what would be their first worldwide release entitled, Kingdom of Might. Their preference for a positive message as opposed to the stereotypical negative and abrasive metal attitude is apparent in their Metal Blade debut. Vocalist Chris Catanzaro states their goal for this project: “This album is meant to encourage people to consider their lives, consider anything and everything, as opposed to just remaining lethargic. Upon doing so, it's my hope that someone might develop a peace with the truths in which they discover, and if nothing else find something within our record that leads them to improving their life as opposed to the common 'metal' message of destroying it. Kingdom of Might is our pride and joy musically, the culmination of hours and hours of work, so if nothing else, give it an honest listen!.

Woe of Tyrants spent the entirety of 2009 criss-crossing the US on a multitude of tours. After the grueling schedule came to a close, you'd think they would head home to relax and take some time off. But no, not Woe of Tyrants. They immediately dove right into songwriting for Threnody, the follow up to their sophomore album and Metal Blade debut, Kingdom Of Might. This time around, the guys have seriously turned up the shred-knob and have churned out an album chock full of incredibly exhilarating and exciting songs. Their style lends itself to a level of brutality and heaviness present in bands like Children Of Bodom and Amon Amarth - their heaviness lies in strong melodies, and not in the amount of times the open E-string is chugged. Woe of Tyrants' songs will put a smile on your face as opposed to a grimace. « hide
