Triskelyon is the new Canadian melodic thrash metal project created by Geoff Waye, guitarist for Artach and Category VI that was conceived in late 2021 as a studio-only project. Earlier this year, on January 25th, the band featuring contributions from vocalists Pete Healey and Marlee Ryley (Hyperia), along with drum programming by Raul Marques (Burning Torment) made their introduction to the metal world with a 3-track self-titled EP. The recording was received with great praise from new fans and the metal media that commented the following:
“This is the kind of band that really plays that pure, raw, seething thrash metal that I love.” (Wings of Death)
“The EP thunders around the listener’s ears with a massive, powerful sound and gripping guitar riffs… Geoff Waye also acts as lead guitarist in the melodic as well as brute playing with pinpoint accuracy…” (PowerMetal.de),
“Pete’s vocals definitely are more of the aggressive heavy/power metal variety while Marlee shakes the hell out of the speakers with a more aggressive and harsher, yet high-pitched style.” (The Metal Crypt)
Triskeylon is proud to tease new music from their upcoming first length, founder Geoff Waye explains further.
“Based on the encouraging feedback, and the ongoing flood of riffs that I kept coming up with this year, I decided to do a full-length Triskelyon album. More details on the record will be available soon. All the guitars, bass, and drums are recorded. It’s just the vocals that are being worked on now. Musically, you can expect the same style of melodic thrash that was on the 3-track EP from Jan 2022.”
With anthemic choruses that you can sing along to, speedy head-banging riffs, and just a straight-to-the-point melodic thrash sound, Triskelyon is recommended for fans of Anthrax, Death Angel, Metal Church, Testament, and Forbidden.
