Lye was formed in the mid 2000's with front man Nathan Storm and lead guitar player George McClintock. The goal of the project was to create a modern metal band with classic flares from classic rock and progressive metal. Their first release in 2006, To All of Those EP, was complimented with the addition of a bass player Dylan Parker (Warwick Bass Endorser) and got radio play throughout St. Louis. Then in 2008 Lye, went in to create their first full album. This process lead to the departure of the drummer and left Lye with an album that just didn't meet expectations. In 2010, Lye set out to create an album that would set them apart from all other albums in St. Louis. They wanted to include any and all influences from modern groove metal masters Meshuggah to classical progressive masters like Tool and Yes. In 2012, Lye acquired Keegan Roundcount and added a guitar player Dave Gregory to accomplish this task. Much talk ensued about the recording style of the album and it was decided that between the skills sets of all the members that they would DIY the album minus the mixing process. In mid 2012, after all the tracking was complete, the album was sent out to Poland to be mixed by Widek Music and Dec 7th, 2012 Point of Origin was complete. Point of Origin features nearly 50 minutes of material venturing through many colors in the musical spectrum from heavy groove metal to ambient choral chants to sweeping melodic choruses. This album is the point were all of Lye comes together.
