2001: DYM (Death to Your Modern) begins as an electro/industrial music project. Influenced by old-school industrial acts such as Skinny Puppy, Throbbing Gristle, and Frontline Assembly, (E-N) conceives DYM.
2002: At the start of the year, three of DYM’s tracks hit the internet, and the band’s popularity first begins to swell. DYM holds the top 3 slot on the mp3.com Canadian Industrial chart, and gains international acclaim with their lo-fi single, “Dirty”, as it lands at 23 on the mp3.com World chart.
2003: longtime friend (Arc) joins forces with E-N, and DYM plays their much anticipated first performance in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. DYM continues to play live, and the band is well received by Hamilton and Toronto audiences. DYM also finds critical recognition in the same year: after a mere 3 shows, Alex Veronac of (internationally distributed) Release Magazine names DYM one of “the best electro-industrial newcomers of 2003”.
2004: DYM meets 2004 with a series of live performances, headlining shows in St. Catharines and Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, while also continuing to play to their growing Torontonian fan-base.
In the following year, DYM takes a break from live appearances, choosing instead to focus on writing and studio work. Also in 2005: DYM relocates to Toronto.
2006: DYM returns to find that all of their diligent work is about to pay off. In March, DYM clenches the 1 position on the numberonemusic.com industrial chart with their engaging single “Zenologic”. Four of DYM’s songs remain in the chart’s top ten for three weeks. “Zenologic” gains widespread popularity throughout the industrial scene, and is remixed several times by other accomplished bands and DJs. Early spring finds the duo playing to a packed audience at the world renowned C.O.M.A. 3 festival in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. In September, DYM wins Caustic’s remix contest (artist's choice) with “Give Me Damage”. The track appears on Caustic’s 2006 release, Give Me Free Handjobs.
2007: DYM is nearing completion of their latest album, The Invilid. With inspiration from rhythm and noise of acts such as Venetian Snaresand Enduser, The Invilid is set to feature an enigmatic design of aggressive EBM synths, interfused with an influence of breakcorepercussion and 'glitching'. Nick Gorman (of Fractured - Dependant Records) co-produces.
2008: DYM signs with Noitekk and released through Cop International in north America - "The Invilid" released in September.
2009: “The Invilid” appears On Germanys DAC top 10 for 2 months at the beginning of 2009 marking DYM’s entry onto the international scene and receives a number of great reviews from various magazine, webzines, and forums worldwide (see blog). During this year DYM played a numbers of live shows to support the Invilid including appearances at north America’s biggest industrial music festival, “festival kinetik” in Montréal & the infamous B.E.A.T Crusher in Toronto. In between Live performances EÑ of DYM had been Working hard on a slew of remixes for other bands (Grendel, Acylum, wynardtage, Caustic, Cdrone Defect, Preemptive Strike, C lekktor, and others) as well as preparing a remix version of “the Invilid” to be accompanied by a New EP from DYM.
