Tyranny of Hours


Founded in Portland Oregon in 2011, Tyranny of Hours have been forging epic metal symphonies and bringing them to stages around the Pacific Northwest. Featuring the soaring vocals of Michelle Matter, the band set up complex rhythms, melodic passages and haunting soundscapes against epic themes and lyrics. Their self titled debut album was released in 2013 to critical acclaim, both regionally and internationally.

The band set out to create a live stage show that could reflect the cinematic atmosphere and intensity of the music, including perfectly syncronizing an intelligent light show to every performance. The band quickly established itself as a headlining act at a number of regional venues and was the only metal band selected to perform at the first annual MOGO music festival in 2015.


With the release of their second full length album “Darkling”  – on June 15th 2018, Tyranny of Hours looks to take their adventures to the next chapter.
