We’re happy to announce the signing of HALCYON WAY from Atlanta, Georgia!
The band was founded in 2001 and released its successful debut album “A Manifesto For Domination” in 2008 (via Nightmare Records).
HALCYON WAY started working on the second album “Building The Towers” in 2009, which was released in autumn 2010, once again receiving fantastic reviews.
“IndoctriNation”, the band’s third album, followed in late 2011.
In spring 2012, HALCYON WAY went on their largest tour yet, which led them through 9 countries in Europe and the UK, along with Delain.
Another highlight in the band’s live history is the 2-week US/Canada tour with U.D.O. in April 2013, the 32-day US/Canada tour as direct support for Saxon and Fozzy as well as support shows for Fates Warning in the US.
HALCYON WAY‘s sound cannot be neatly slotted into any sub-category of metal; but it can be described as heavy, catchy, technical, and above all, focused on mature songcraft.
The band draws influences and inspiration from many metal bands from Megadeth to Dream Theater, Testament or Chimaira.
The focus of the songwriting is on catchy hooks, vocal harmonies à la King’s X or Stryper, and on heavy, technical, but ultimately accessible instrumentation.
Although these are many disparate influences, the net result is a brand of metal that is immediately familiar and comfortable to the listener, yet strangely hard to define.
HALCYON WAY’s upcoming album “Conquer” is set to be released later this year via Massacre Records!
