***LOOKING FOR GUITARIST AND BASSIST! Must be a very proficient guitarist/bassist, 100% committed, willing to do as many practices and gigs as possible, and must be tolerant of being eaten by a giant inflatable crocodile on a regular basis***

Tyrant are a Leeds based metal band. Formed in October 2010, by students and graduates of Leeds university, Tyrant have become a force to be reckoned with in the Leeds scene, playing their own brand of thrash/groove tinged with elements of progressive and melodic metal, generating fantastic receptions and great radio reviews. Their debut E.P. 'Serious Business' has already taken to the airwaves, and their music has been played on Jam Radio, Leeds Student Radio, PlanetMosh and the Wyrd Ways Rock Show.

At the 'Serious Business' launch on April 19th 2012, Tyrant played a headline set to a sell-out crowd, showing just how far they have come in the year and a half since their conception. Within a few hours of coming on sale, every single copy of 'Serious Business' had been sold!

Tyrant have main supported such bands as EVIL SCARECROW, FALLEN FATE, XERATH, FURY, VIER, EXIST IMMORTAL, and SEVERED HEAVEN, and have played alongside such bands as DYSCARNATE, BLOODSHOT DAWN, VIRUS, DETONATION, GORE, GRIEVE, DIASCORIUM, PLAGUE OF ANGELS and DREAMCATCHER. They have exploded across the Leeds rock and metal scene, building up a solid fan base and a sonic onslaught that is a blend of blistering riff-work, soaring harmonies, thunderous beats and intricate melodies, as well as a good solid helping of old-school thrash, and, erm...inflatable crocodiles. Yeah. Tyrant come ready to tear it up while having some fun, and bring the metal without too much of the cheese (but maybe a little cheese :D ) .

"Tyrant take the best of old-school thrash and modern metal combined...large, spiralling riffs...really impressive" (review on LSR)

"TYRANT are making serious noise. They have built a strong reputation for their unrelenting live shows. To put it mildly, Tyrant guarantee serious verve at every outing. Good form." (review by Live&Loud)

"Tyrant tackled the stage in a vibrant approach with captivating songs, 4/5'' - Live review by GigsandFestivals

"Tyrant exploded into a thunderous set and turned the crowd into a tornado like wall of death – much to their delight. Darkly witty presence and richly melodic lead guitar styling is Tyrant's trademark , but seeing them live just takes the music to another level. Gustave made sure it was “business as usual” by diving into the crowd and promptly being torn a new one – literally! If you have no idea who Gustave is then I suggest you hunt down the lads at their next gig and ask to be introduced." - Live review by Gothestro Fanzine
