"Loco for Live, Local Music- by Jason Dole"

Friday 2/09/07-MazMyth @ The RockBar in Liberty.

-I will deffinately be taking a closer look at MazMyth in the comming months, but here's the quick scoop: The Quartet (possibly a qunitet, but their drummer is a school) features members from Livingston Manor and Liberty. Led by guitarist-Dj-producer Matt Smith, they play a mix of rock raggae and electronic jams unlike any other local band I'm aware of.
I entered the RockBar last Friday to MazMyth's cover of Bob Marley's "Exodus," in honor of Marley's birthday a few days before. The following set included synth-laced jamming, some metal-edged modern rock and more mellow grooves. It was accompanied with-screen video images of everything from war-protests to horror movies, courtesy of Manor media man Ryan Mead.
As I said, look for more about MazMyth on these pages. For Now, you can check them out yourself when they return to the rockbar (formally Burger King) off of Route 52 in Liberty this Saturday, Feb 17. - Sullivan County Democrat




Jordan DuMond is rarely seen without a bass guitar in his hands. Jordan's drive for excellence has helped to temper him into a musical force to be reckoned with. Listening to Frank Zappa from a very early age, the influence of classic experimental music is evident in Jordan's play. More recent influences like Les Claypool and Bootsy Collins have helped Jordan to realize the power of funk, and the essence of leading a song with a bassline.
Steve Freitas' melodic and harmonic skill stands apart from the majority of his musical peers. From a creative standpoint, Steve's ability is difficult to match. Steve is skilled at making a crowd feel comfortable. His charismatic charm, and humor laden demeanor could make any audience feel at home. Influenced primarily by Pink Floyd, and Sublime, Steve brings a unique element to the ensemble.
Matt and Dan Smith have been playing music together since childhood. Born to a musical family, the Smith brothers grew up with instruments in their hands. With a vision of sound as communication, the Smiths can be seen "talking" on stage without moving their lips. Influenced primarily by Yes, King Crimson, Aphex Twin, and Tool, the Smith brothers strive to push the boundaries of composition.
MazMyth is a constantly progressing meeting point for each of these musician's thoughts, emotions, and aspirations. Complex rhythmic compositions and high energy performances are a hallmark of MazMyth's union. Collectively, the band's influences exceed those of any individual member. In this case, the whole is truly greater than the sum of its parts.
