Lye

April 29, 2010

Band: Lye
Genre: Electronic rock
Year: 2006
Release: 2005 – Companion

Chatham Connection: Drummer Nigel Barylewicz is from Chatham. He spent his high school years playing guitar in local death metal bands. Nigel later moved to Toronto after high school and released a bunch of solo experimental records through the 2000’s. He plays several instruments, but landed this gig as the drummer for the popular band Lye.

Members:
Brett Carruthers: Vocals
James Toth: Guitar
Stephany Seki: Bass
Nigel Barylewicz: Drums

Notes: After solidifying their lineup, Lye took on new management, a new name, and a redeveloped website and worked for months to perfect their live show. Lye now consists of vocalist Brett Carruthers, guitarist James Toth, bassist Stephany Seki and drummer Nigel Barylewicz. Never afraid to jump from the stage and join their fans, the members of Lye have founded their reputation on an interactive and cathartic live show. Carruthers is a manic frontman whose range of emotion runs from one extreme to another. After announcing “this song is a love song” Carruthers bursts into a screaming rage amidst members of the audience.

In 2007, the band released a DVD ‘Live At The Opera House July 8 2006’.

A Dying Fixation

April 23, 2010

Band: A Dying Fixation
Year: 2006
Genre: Metal
Home: Tilbury

Members:
Cory Chauvin
– Guitarist (ex-Lesser Known, D.N.A.)
Darren James – Vocals (Dismata, PitBull Grin)

Notes from their page
Rearing it’s ugly head in June 2005 “A Dying Fixation” was spawned from a simple concept…friends getting together to deliver a punishing dose of extreme groove-oriented hard-core / metal music. A new project where the main focus is to bring something a little fresh to the current scene while leaving a trail of musical destruction behind them.
  They have released three tracks on ‘myspace.com’ that include Vultures, Home Town Grotesque, and Martyrs Wear Murder Weapons.
