TYRANNY is a Finnish funeral doom band that was formed originally in 2001 by Matti Mäkelä and Lauri Lindqvist, conceived under the strain of a stranger will to channel the ageless resonations of earth and oceans and sonorous visions and fevered dreams by the means of epic, funereal soundscapes.
In 2004 the band released their debut, "Bleak Vistae", that made quite an impact on the small and reclusive yet devoted funeral doom scene. This was followed by the acclaimed album "Tides of Awakening" in 2005.
The band has always operated in the shadows, worked on intuition and done things only when there was a will and the time seemed right for it. The past 10 years have been devoted to a few live appearances such as Roskilde festival, Roadburn festival and the KillTown Deathfest, and the slow writing process of the next album "Aeons In Tectonic Interment" - the band's greatest work to this day. Be prepared for diseased psalms of slow, tortured, epically bowel-rupturing grimness!
