Thyrd Eye

Thyrd Eye

BandAlternativeGothic

An alternative take on goth. Brutal and dark yet with infectious melodies, clever riffs and thunderous drums. The sound changes within a few bars, hard-driving riffs following gently picked melodies; vocals changing from screaming staccato to sweet and ethereal. Performances are out of this world.

Biography

Thyrd Eye are a sibling trio from Monmouthshire with a debut single due for release in September 2009 through Levelsound Records.
Our music is a journey through grunge, metal and punk, with surprise detours (and a little help from Bob Moog). At times our songs are brutal and dark, they grab at your heart, set it racing and drop it down with a dirty great thud. Yet at other times they’re as catchy as pop, with melodies that remain long after our music has ended.
What you may hear at first is an infectious melody carried by grunge guitars and thunderous drums, but we are out to deceive. Our songs take a diversion which can be sweet or sour, ear-piercingly loud or soft and fragile. Hard driving guitar riffs stack up against vocals that turn from screaming punk staccato to sweet and ethereal. Queens of the Stone Age, Throwing Muses, Soundgarden, Nine Inch Nails, Masters of Reality, Melvins, The Cure, Sonic Youth and Pixies are just some of our influences.
We have recently supported Jubilee on the Hereford leg of their UK tour. Jubilee include Aaron North (ex Nine Inch Nails) and Michael Shuman (Queens of the Stone Age). We have also supported Zico Chain and Betty Curse at Bristol Carling Academy, The Subways at TJ’s Newport and Enter Shikari at Coleford Music Festival.
