Syryn: Branching out into the Pirate/Sailor’s perspective and beyond.

Syryn – Head Or Tails

Syryn is Calgary based metal band combining the roots of blues, the domination of power metal and the rapid style…..Their sophomore album Heads Or Tails was released August 26th. The band returns to seduce new fans and entertain current ones with their epic heavy metal tales of mermaids, sailors, and pirates. The track Sink Or Swim,

Syryn’s sophomore album Heads Or Tails, is a record full of growth, diversity, and a much more collaborative effort as a whole compared to the band’s debut full-length Beyond The Depths along with co-writing with guest vocalists Amanda Kiernan (ex-The Order Of Chaos, ex-Into Eternity) and Craig Carswell (Producer, Singer /Songwriter, Dorians Mirror, Court Of Cardinals). Head Or Tails is more a themed album branching out into the Pirate/Sailor’s perspective and beyond. The video Madness Becomes Me,

The band wanted to continue on the storytelling of a Siren’s journey, touching on as many aspects of it as they could fit onto the record (including the many emotions we go through in everyday life: Love, fear, anger, happiness, sadness, regret, etc.). Syryn also wanted to shake things up and create something a bit out of their regular musical realm, no two songs are alike and that makes the band more difficult to categorize. They try to incorporate all their influences into their own sound with a wide array of styles to adhere to many people’s tastes.

«This album is part of my soul. Not only is it melodic, but it is also menacing and malicious. It’s happy and fun, yet heart wrenching. Every piece of music written includes a piece of myself. How could it not, really. We write from experience, we write from knowledge, or dreams, or desires. I write from all of the above, and more. The beauty of this album as a whole is that we all get it. We all feel those things and want to represent them as best we can».

«Be it to cheer someone up, provide an awesome drinking song, be pissed off at something or someone, dig a bit deeper, stand up for ourselves, give a musical hug, or whatever the hell else we feel like. This album encompasses all of that and more. Music is a voice, and we are choosing to use it. This album was a blast to write! We’ve been holding on to these riffs for a long while, and hopefully, the anticipation is exactly what our fans were waiting for», adds vocalist Sloan Voxx.

Madness Becomes Me is the first single off of Syryn`s sophomore album to be released in 2022.

Madness Becomes Me tells the story of the calm before the storm… and then the storm. All is well, tranquil and beautiful. Then you start to feel as though you’re being pulled in multiple directions like someone is controlling your thoughts. You start to question yourself and your own sanity and start thinking of a way out. Bargaining, threatening, trying to keep a sense of reality. It’s scary and seems like everything is darker and you feel like you’re going in deeper and deeper into a black hole while blind to your own senses.You try to fight it, but in the end, you are feeling depleted. You’re lost in your own mind and are pleading for the force to release.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7437 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
