Edmonton, Canada’s TYMO have a third single coming out off their solidly thrash metal album “The Art of A Maniac” slated for release next month. The single “Age of Deception” is a groovy, progressive, jazz fusion inspired track, reminiscent of early Megadeth. The song touches on the subject of social media abuse and how people change under the influence of technology and how the human race is now very connected yet still so very distant from each other. TYMO explain the track further:
““Age Of Deception” was an instrumental that Nick Schwartz had written over 12 years ago, which was sitting in his computer. He showed it to the rest of the band and everyone was blown away. Nick was taking jazz guitar lessons at the time and it really rubbed off on this track.
Tim quickly added some lyrics to it and it became “Age Of Deception.” This song is definitely a new style for the band and really shows off our skillset! One of those songs that’s fast and to the point, another favorite to play live!”
The band initially started out as vocalist/guitarist Tim Tymo’s solo project, but once the current lineup formed they found that they had good chemistry as a band and wanted to work together on new music. Their common musical interests have led them down the path of playing faster and heavier, and before they knew it, they were a thrash metal band.
Their lyrical inspirations can vary from our life experiences as well as our personal interests. However, the increased intensity of the songs, especially on “The Art of A Maniac'' has led to crazier lyrical ideas this time around, including alien invasion, civil conflicts, social media, and total annihilation.
TYMO describes their music as “The feeling of being caught in a tornado and going for a ride around the funnel” , it is recommended for fans of Slayer, Lich King and Municipal Waste.
The single “Age Of Deception” can be heard via its premiere on Metal-Rules HERE .
“The Art of A Maniac” is recommended for fans of Megadeth, Slayer, Lich King, Municipal Waste, and Exodus.

“A golden shower of thrash metal!” Six words to sum up Tymo! A band whose attitude lives up 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 god 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.
Tim Tymo describes the band’s sounds 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!
Tymo’s debut album “Purge & Reset” was released in August of 2017 and Tymo performed shows in support of the album throughout 2018. The band returned to the studio in early 2019 to record a single entitled “Sanity Clause.” It was released in late 2019 with very positive reviews and sold-out shows! Due to Covid 19, the band spent much of 2020 in the studio recording their follow-up album to Purge & Reset!
As of 2021, Tymo performed at the Loud As Hell Festival 2021 and has finished recording their next full-on thrash album! Much faster and more aggressive than Purge & Reset. The album entitled “The Art of A Maniac” is planned to be released in 2022 and Tymo has a mission to expand its audience and dominate the world! Planning to tour Europe and many other countries.
