They will fill you up with “nice juicy riffage”, some critics have stated about Tymo: a band whose attitude lives to the title of their debut album “Purge & Reset”. Lead guitarist and vocalist Tim Tymo explains that the origin of the title is more than words; it is a statement of lost faith in humanity. “Let’s just say we have a creator or superior being. If this being gave up everything we needed to flourish and returned to see all the wars and corruption, it would want to wipe the slate clean and start over. Hence…PURGE AND RESET!”
Formed in Edmonton in 2015, Tymo is comprised of Tim Tymo as the lead guitarist and vocalist, Nick Schwartz on rhythm guitar, Harlen Jacobs on bass, and Marc Durie on drums.
Tymo was among Edmonton’s finalists in the Wacken Metal Battle Canada contest: a battle of the bands with the goal of playing in the Wacken Open Air music festival in Germany. They have played with bands such as Ninjaspy, Mortillery, Hazzerd, W.M.D., and Thor. Inspired by Municipal Waste, Megadeth, Slayer, Bonded by Blood, and Metallica, Tim Tymo describes the band’s sounds as “loud, angry, and explosive thrash”. Tymo has a serious mission to entertain their fans. “We love writing and performing, and we all share a common passion for thrash metal. We wanted to reference our heroes and mix up that inspiration with our own brew and see what we came up with; and here we are. We want to give people a source of inspiration and excitement!”
Live, Tymo has much in common with their heroes Municipal Waste. “We like to look at our shows as something to keep everyone entertained, such as having something unique happen during each song. We will have our mascot run out and mosh with the crowd and add little changes throughout each song to keep the set memorable.” Tymo’s debut album “Purge & Reset” was released in August of 2017 and is available online at all major online retailers.
