Tyranny of Hours

Tyranny of Hours releases Christmas song “The Silver Wheel”

From the ToH vaults… We wrote “The Silver Wheel” in 2014, after we were invited to contribute an original song for a European Christmas metal album compilation. Unfortunately, that Euro project never was released…but fortunately – we have a new (to our fans) Christmas tune to share – and just in time for the holidays!

ToH will donate 100% of  proceeds from downloads of “The Silver Wheel” made through December 31st 2017, to Salem Union Gospel Mission and to Portland Rescue Mission. These and many other shelters are simply overwhelmed and especially so during the harsh winter months. Every donation is gratefully accepted and put to max use.

Please join Tyranny of Hours in helping to make this season a little more bearable for those with so little!

Hello to you all!

I am deeply sorry we’ve been quiet for so long! Just weeks after last June’s CD Release show — I got sick. Real sick. Gig plans built on the momentum of our album release and press reviews, as well as our much-anticipated Halloween Ball… immediately thrown into suspended animation. As I slowly recovered through Fall and Winter.

But I’m a lot better, now — so we are pumped to get back to all things ToH!!

Looking back, 2013 was a pivotal year for Tyranny of Hours.  Released our debut album. Threw a gigantic CD Release and Press show/party at Black Diamond Studios in Portland to an SRO crowd – the place was packed to the gills! Their normally peaceful neighborhood never quite knew what hit ‘em!

So. We are picking up the threads of where we left off and really revving things into gear. There’s a lot going on!

First – the incredible guitarist of Pacific Northwest band, NeverawakE — our good friend, Matt Galligan – is even busier now because he just joined us as our bass player. We’re honored to be able to play with him.

Next – we’re adding the final brush strokes to an original Christmas song, “The Silver Wheel”, slated as part of a European CD compilation of worldwide metal bands for a global fundraiser.

Also –speaking of Halloween Ball …YES – – it is a go!!!  The 2014 Tyranny of Hours Halloween Bash is on – we’ll be rockin’ it live in Salem Oregon on Saturday, October 25th at Duffy’s Hangar with Special Guests “Lumus”.  We would love to see you there!

Tickets are already on sale and selling briskly.  The club only holds 300 souls, meaning we fully expect a sell out — so don’t wait!

One More Thing: we deeply thank every person who has purchased or intends to buy our CD, show tickets, etc. It’s crushingly expensive for independent bands to produce and deliver high-quality music and mount live shows – not just for Tyranny of Hours – but for scores of killer bands around the world. On behalf of us all: thank you for supporting original music and allowing us to keep on keepin’ on for you.
