Tyranny of Hours


Tyranny of Hours is a Portland, OR USA symphonic progressive metal band formed in 2011 by Don Graham (guitars, bass) and Michelle Mattair (vocals). Their first single, “Amber” came out later that year, garnering extensive international airplay in the UK and Germany.

They released their self-titled, full album in 2013 to excellent critical acclaim from a number of magazines online and print. After several personnel changes, they nailed the final line up when Matt Galligan (bass, guitars) and Alex McDonald (drums) joined the band late 2014.

They’ve concentrated on building a strong regional following, playing local shows and festivals as headliners and in support of international touring acts.

Tyranny of Hours will unleash their 2nd album in Spring 2018.
