Biography

Talamyus was created in 2002 by the St-Jean brothers (Benoît - guitar/vocals and Dany - bass) with the firm intention of developing their own original style; an hybrid of their personal influences, mainly Thrash, Death and Viking Metal… Something that, at the time, was never really approached nor experimented with by any local bands in their home town of Montréal.

After several attempts in finding the right drummer to complete the very first Talamyus line-up, luck finally stroke when Jean-Philippe Latour (drums) offered his services. The band started jamming right away and after giving various local concerts, the band entered Studio En-Phase (Jean-Philippe’s studio) in January of 2005, to record the band’s very first album entitled “As Long As It Flows…”, which was later on licensed to local indie label GWN Records.

In August of 2005, Nicolas Vincent joined the band to add a second guitar.

Various shows followed locally. Then in late 2007, ex-DEATHROW drummer Jonathan Herbst was enlisted to fill the void left by Jean-Philippe, who left the band for personal matters. The move proved to be beneficial, instantly bringing the band to a higher level of musicianship.

Hitting back studio En-Phase for the band’s second album entitled “In These Days of Violence”. The new material showcases a giant leap in originality, production and musicianship. The band’s style slowly shifting to more of a Viking Metal approach while still keeping its Thrash Metal overtones.
