Halcyon Way - Biography

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.




Halcyon Way is Atlanta, Georgia's premier heavy metal band. Known for their explosive live shows, instantly catchy melodies, precise vocal harmonies, incendiary guitar work, intricate yet pounding drums, and live props and showmanship hearkening back to the glory days of arena rock, they dominate the local live scene. Aurally combining the heaviness of bands like Slayer, the technical prowess of Dream Theater, and with vocal melodies reminding you of Ronnie James Dio's best work, you will be pummeled with the punishing riffs while being lovingly caressed by the unforgettable hooks.

Halcyon Way have received radio play on Atlanta's FM 99.7, 91.1, 96.1, 1640AM, XM Radio, Sirius Radio, Darktech Radio, Maximum Threshold, Braingell Radio, Powermaker, Zentient Metalcast, and many other online radio stations. They have also shared the stage with heavyweight acts such as Helloween, Strapping Young Lad, Symphony X, Kamelot, Doro Pesch, Marc Rizzo of Soulfly, and many others. In addition, Halcyon Way were the first Atlanta band to be featured at the legendary Prog Power festival in 2004, having been invited to kick off the festivities at the Prog Power Showcase, and were also a last minute addition to the Prog Power VIII Showcase in 2007. Halcyon Way also performed twice at the Rocklahoma 2008 festival alongside bands such as Queensrÿche, Tesla, Ace Frehley, and many others.

After releasing a string of EPs - Blind Eyes To The Sky & Deliver The Suffering, Halcyon Way released their long-awaited debut, A Manifesto For Domination in 2008. Produced by guitarist Jon Bodan with assistance from James Murphy (Testament, Death, Obituary), mixed by Lasse Lammert (Alestorm, Incubator), and mastered by James Murphy, the record was released worldwide via Nightmare Records.

In 2010, Halcyon Way releases their 2nd album. Produced by Halcyon Way and Lasse Lammert, Building The Towers features the 10 best songs the band has ever written, superb performances by all involved, including new vocalist Steve Braun (formerly of Italy's Ashent) and guest vocalist Pamela Moore (yes, Sister Mary from Queensrÿche's Operation Mindcrime). Topped by a stunning artwork courtesy of Travis Smith (Nevermore, Opeth etc.), the album comes across as nothing but a masterpiece in the making.
