directory of local bands
Their music draws on influences from across the Heavy Metal "spectrum", with influences from bands such as Lamb of God, Gojira, Slayer, Periphery and Dream Theater. This mixture of styles has resulted in a perfect blend of fast, thrashy riffs, complex time signatures, and extremely heavy beats.

The lineup consists of:
Henri Attan: Vocals.
Rick Walker: Guitars/backing vocals.
John Richardson: Guitars.
Adam Parkin: Bass.
Stephen Wilkinson: Drums

Tyrant have already played several gigs, and have even got through to a local battle of the bands final, with the first heat being their first ever gig! In playing these gigs, it has shown that Tyrant can be listened to by people of all ages and from all backgrounds. They have received great reviews from from people of all musical tastes, and have even had a very good review from Leeds Student Radio.

Although Tyrant might be a bit too much for an open mic nights, they would be more-suited to playing local gigs supporting other heavy bands, botb's and rock/metal festivals. Tyrant has even been involved in a few botb's playing alongside folk, funk/soul, and indie bands.

Tyrant are also in the process of recording an EP, which will be released in June 2011.
