Edmonton’s Tymo have fleshed out a new single ‘Sanity Clause’ ,which is being premiered exclusively via Bravewords at the following link HERE.

This single is the first release from the band since their 2017 album “Purge and Reset” and they are fired up to get this new single to ears! They quote with enthusiasm: 

“We hope that people are as excited to hear what we’ve come up with as we are to put it out! We can never know for sure how people will respond to our music, but we’re excited to see what people think!”

Influenced by thrash heavyweights including MegadethSlayer and Municipal Waste, the single is their first that will depart from the melodic end of the metal spectrum exhibiting more speed, energy and technicality that is akin to the traditional thrash sound. In their own words:

“It’s a fast, skull crushing song, which tells the story of one not being able to escape their consciousness. When the obstacles in life become too hard, they take their own life only to realize it’s much worse in the afterlife and the consequences are worse.”

What started as a solo project for Tim Tymo evolved into a full-fledged band with the addition of Nick Schwartz, Harlen Jacobs and Marc Durie. They describe their sound eloquently by coining it as a ‘golden shower of thrash metal’ and citing that this single is a taste of what’s to come on the upcoming album the thrashers have chosen nine songs that they think will stand out the best and are stoked to be releasing them soon.

Metalheads get ready! This single comes out October 4, 2019 on all music platforms.

For More Info:


They will fill you up with “nice juicy riffage”, some critics have stated about Tymo: a band whose attitude lives to the title of their debut album “Purge & Reset”. Lead guitarist and vocalist Tim Tymo explains that the origin of the title is more than words; it is a statement of lost faith in humanity. “Let’s just say we have a creator or superior being. If this being gave up everything we needed to flourish and returned to see all the wars and corruption, it would want to wipe the slate clean and start over. Hence…PURGE AND RESET!”

Formed in Edmonton in 2015, Tymo is comprised of Tim Tymo as the lead guitarist and vocalist, Nick Schwartz on rhythm guitar, Harlen Jacobs on bass, and Marc Durie on drums.

Tymo was among Edmonton’s finalists in the Wacken Metal Battle Canada contest: a battle of the bands with the goal of playing in the Wacken Open Air music festival in Germany. They have played with bands such as Ninjaspy, Mortillery, Hazzerd, W.M.D., and Thor. Inspired by Municipal WasteMegadethSlayer, Bonded by Blood, and Metallica, Tim Tymo describes the band’s sound as “loud, angry, and explosive thrash”. Tymo has a serious mission to entertain their fans. “We love writing and performing, and we all share a common passion for thrash metal. We wanted to reference our heroes and mix up that inspiration with our own brew and see what we came up with; and here we are. We want to give people a source of inspiration and excitement!”

Live, Tymo has much in common with their heroes Municipal Waste. “We like to look at our shows as something to keep everyone entertained, such as having something unique happen during each song. We will have our mascot run out and mosh with the crowd and add little changes throughout each song to keep the set memorable.” Tymo’s debut album “Purge & Reset” was released in August of 2017 and is available online at all major online retailers.
