HALCYON WAY was founded in 2001 and released its successful debut album “A Manifesto For Domination” in 2008 (via Nightmare Records). That was followed up by the critically acclaimed “Building The Towers” in 2010, and the sequel to that release, “IndoctriNation”, was released in 2011.
The band toured relentlessly over the last few years, going out with Fozzy in the UK, Delain for a full European tour, and North American tours with U.D.O., Saxon, and Fates Warning.
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 song craft. The band draws influences & 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.
