Biography

Started in 2007 as originally a four-piece, skate punk band; Rhythm Fiend has since evolved their sound to that of a fusion band. Merging together sounds from their favourite genres the now three-piece is working on new material.

Formed in the basement of Kyle Charron's parents house, Beer League Kennedy spawned as a four-piece skate punk band with members Kyle Charron, Brandon Reid, Chris Ambrus and Ally Sweetzer. Shortly after the formation the band dropped original lead vocalist Ambrus and changed their name to Rhythm Fiend. Originally sticking strictly to punk with thrash influences, RF wrote and recorded a 6 song EP called the "Homegrown EP". The band continued writing and playing shows all around the GTA until mid 2008. Near the end of 2007 the band started forming their sound into a heavier style with more technical guitar and bass, and faster drums. The product of this new style brought forward the more popular four song EP "No Need To Panic" which was sold at shows and available for free download over myspace. Along with the four songs on the EP, Rhythm Fiend had roughly another 5 new songs plus the original 6 and covers leaving them with quite an extensive catalog of music.

2009 the band continued playing shows and writing new material but movement was slowly halting all the way into 2010. RF recorded four new songs to give audiences a preview of what was to be expected for 2010. Blast forward to now, original drummer Sweetzer jumped ships (with no bad blood) to a new band called Paramount and the Fiend found a new drummer named Chris West. As of August 2010 the band continues to write all new material as they have pulled a 360 on their sound and prepared to hit the studio and start playing shows come September.

Glass Back Into Sand

Glass Back into Sand
Lyrics for GLASS BACK INTO SAND.

Standing stranded silent
There's no doubt about it
I'm lost for words what's there to say anyways?
So much time has gone by
Still so much time to get high
Like a disease these thoughts keep eating away at me

Don't know exactly what went wrong
All I know is we did our best to have the best time that we had
I'm past the point of breaking down
These eyes are tired from long nights thinking of how to make things right

So let's turn this glass back into sand
Less chance of us cutting our hands
I wish you would stay close to me
It's the beginning of the end

Can't stay confused about this
Situation you've made complicated
A chapter written, over thought and thrown away
Standing stranded silent
Here at the end of all this
No going back, no time to say what should be said

Don't know exactly what went wrong (Shortened Days)
All I know is we did our best (and falling frights) to have the best time that we had (Will take away, our worst)
I'm past the point (recreate myself) of breaking down (built back up)
These eyes are tired from long nights thinking of how to make things right

So let's turn this glass back into sand
Less chance of us cutting our hands
I wish you would stay close to me
It's the beginning of the end

It's so hard to know what to believe anymore
Sometimes you just want to run away
It's so hard to know what to believe anymore
Sometimes you just want to run away

Let's turn this glass back into sand.

Johnny Got His Gun

Written By: Charron

Sail away all by yourself, just to aid the selfless lives.

Thousands set ablaze, missiles overhead. Keep the blood shed lines in mind as the unmarked graves. Closer to the final plan to rid of man, the arms are set to blow; welcome to death row.

Lets pin these bodies to the wall, of depression; without question. Why don't we celebrate the unknown redemption?

Running to falling to flailing now your on your own.
Murdered and wounded and screaming, now you die unknown.
Flashing its fading, blood gushing, scream out one last moan.

MAN!
We cannot offer help.
DOWN!
We've had enough

The concluding raid, millions pronounced dead. Trenches filled, skin, bones, lost souls and you should have fucking fled. Run away from these, ideas that lack responsibility.
Buried alive, this hole...is where you fucking die.

One by one these men all bleed the same, stab the post. Carved in grain!
One by one these men all plead the same, smash the post. Carved in grain!

Just sent your soul straight to the grave.
AND THAT CONCERNS YOU!

Lets tear these bodies from the wall, of depression; without question.
Why can't we celebrate the unknown redemption?
