Biography

There are at least two bands with the title Tenet.

1. A five piece / band from Vancouver, British Columbia.
2. A five piece rock band from Hartford, Connecticut.

1. TENET is a heavy metal band formed as a side project by Jed Simon and Gene Hoglan of Strapping Young Lad and Zimmers Hole. They originally started out in the summer of 1996 for Jed Simon, founder of the band. Together with Steve Wheeler (Zimmer’s Hole drummer at the time), they started getting Jed’s ideas down to demo-tape form, but while both continued along with Zimmer’s Hole and Strapping Young Lad, nothing much happened for Tenet apart from some casual jam-sessions, which among others also included players like Stu Carruthers (Grip Inc.). Jed then initially met guitar-partner Glen Alvelais (ex-Forbidden) way back in 1997 when SYL was touring with Testament, for who Glen was playing guitar at the time. After quickly becoming friends, Jed eventually asked Glen if he would be interested in playing together in Tenet and long years later when they re-connected, Glen’s first question was “Whatever happened to that album we were gonna record ?”. They laughed and Jed said “Soon, are you still into it ?” His response was “FUCK YEAH!”

After signing a deal with Century Media Records Jed started out working on “Sovereign” with bassist Byron Stroud (SYL, Zimmer’s Hole, Fear Factory) as well as drummer Adrian Erlandsson (At the Gates, The Haunted, Cradle of Filth, Paradise Lost, etc.
