Othrys, a melodic heavy metal band from Oregon. With
passion, pride and determination. We knew from the start that
this project was special. Formed in 2010 by long time
collaborators Sebastian Phoenix and James Weaver. With Ian
Hamilton joining the band in 2013, and Luke Martyn solidifying
the lineup in 2016. We were now ready for anything including our
debut album in the works and a newly released single named
Retrograde. New music being constantly written , we look forward
to what the future holds for our formative project.
The vocalist of Othrys, I pursued vocals at a young age, after playing guitar recognizing my passion for and about music. Heavily influenced by Alice in Chains, Faith No More, Nothingface, Mudvayne, Gojira, Meshuggah and DevilDriver. I has achieved a lifelong goal of playing within a band of close friends and creative minds. Our shared passion has spawned a band I am nothing but proud of, Othrys. Previous bands include and not limited to Our Own Blood, Dark Cloud 9,and Kingdom Under Fire.
I have always been a lover of music from an early age, started playing acoustic and electric guitar at the age of 16, active in bands since 2000, influenced by more bands then I can name but I’ll try, Slipknot, Mudvayne, Lamb of God, Decapitated, Gojira, Opeth, the list goes on lol. I am humbled to play with such amazingly talented musicians and great friends I get to call family! Previous bands include but are not limited to, Our Own Blood (05-10), Othrys (10-Present), The Suppression (12-13), and At the Seams (15-16).
Masterbasser with 20+ years experience. My early influences include FNM, Tool, Metallica, SOAD, Mudvayne. I was an avid music fan at an early age, I owned my first album at 7. Billy Joel- An Innocent Man yo! I was inspired to pick up the bass when I discovered Cliff Burton and the bass solo Anesthesia. I’ve been actively playing in bands since 2001. Sunday Straightjacket (bass & backup vox) 2001-2005, Face of Order (bass & backup vox) 2006- 2010, Strange Dichotomy 2009-2014 (bass & backup/lead vox) and Applaud the Villain (bass & lead vox) 2011-2013. I actually saw these guys (Othrys) a couple times a years before I joined the band. I was very impressed, despite the lackluster bass. ;) I’m super stoked to be a part of this now.
My previous bands include but are not limited to, Endless Rage, The Suppression, and Othrys. Joining Othrys in 2013 and drumming along with them has been one adventure for sure.
