Khynn Unleash New Music Video ‘Tainted Impression’
A few days after the official release of their brand new full-length album, French metallers Khynn just unleashed an official music video for the single “Tainted Impression” on YouTube. The song is extracted from ‘Supersymmetry’ still available on CD, digital formats through the main legal platforms (iTunes, Amazon, Deezer…) and full streaming on SoundCloud.
At the beginning, Fab (Guitar, Vox), Max (Drums) and Sam (Guitar) decided to create Khynn in 2004. Soon after they were joined by Nel (Synths) & Joker (Bass) and in 2007, the band, based in Besançon (France), released a 7-track demo called “Breakin’ the Fury”. With influences from Metallica to Children of Bodom, the band delivers a heavy thrash melodic debut record, allaying power and emotion. A blast of energy serving a limitless spirit.
Then, some changes occured in the original line-up : Sam replaced Fab as a singer, Joker was replaced by Guillaume and then by Rémi as new bass player. Nel left the band too but was not replaced, Khynn using samples instead of synth, further broadening its musical universe.
In 2011, they released “Any Fear Calms Down” an introspective, epic but effective effort with some progressive rock parts and a varied scope of influences going from Scandinavian to American metal.
I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot!
My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!'
The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;)
Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
