Osyron is a symphonic metal band based in Calgary, Alberta. The group consists of vocalist Reed Alton, guitarists
Krzysztof Stalmach and Bobby Harley, bassist Tyler Corbett, and drummer Cody Anstey. Bridging the gap between
traditional European metal and the music of their homegrown contemporaries, Osyron has a sound all their own.
The band’s origins can be traced back to Ontario, where they began under the name Morbid Theory. After
releasing two demos (Chaos Breed in 2006 and Harbinger in 2010), the band underwent some changes in
membership, scenery, and identity. Moving to Alberta in 2012, the group, now rechristened Osyron, re-recorded
Harbinger in Calgary, and released the album in 2013.
After releasing their sophomore album, Kingsbane, in the fall of 2017, the momentum that followed was swift.
Kingsbane caught the attention of the European metal community – proving a favourite of audiences, critics, and
In 2018, Osyron released a metal cover of the Canadian national anthem, which picked up speed across the
country. This patriotic theme was continued into their third release, Foundations (2020). Stemming from a
perspective of Canadian identity and culture, both past and present, Foundations challenged the global
perspective of the great white north by retelling historical moments in an immersive and melodic manner.
Speaking on topics of Canada’s colonization to the mistreatment and recognition of Aboriginal heroes to the
country’s participation in global warfare.
Now in 2021, with great reception from new fans for “Foundations”, Osyron has decided to re-introduce the past
to the present with the re-release of their 2017 album “Kingsbane” in a Deluxe Edition on May 14th.
The Deluxe Edition of “Kingsbane” will feature all original tracks from the 2017 record re-mixed and re-mastered
(which featured former drummer Trevor Cobb). There will also be three re-written and re-arranged bonus tracks
for Viper Queen, Griefmaker, and Razor’s Wind (Acoustic) with current drummer Cody Anstey. The original
recordings of the bonus tracks were written by guitarists Krzysztof Stalmach and Bobby Harley, but for the Deluxe
Edition were collaborated by the whole band. The Deluxe Edition of “Kingsbane” was also entirely re-mixed by
bassist Tyler Corbett and re-mastered by drummer Cody Anstey.
Osyron has performed alongside numerous major acts such as Norther, Protest The Hero, Into Eternity, Threat
Signal, and The Agonist. Their next goal is to take their sound across the Atlantic to put on a true Canadian
spectacle across the European lands.
