Stygian came out swinging with their 2007 debut album Struggle incorporating a mix of Metallica-inspired metal, grooving hard rock, and catchy melodies that only hinted at the act’s promising future. That promise was made into a reality with the group's new album Fury Rising. Set for release on February 9, 2010 the album sees Stygian raise its game on every conceivable level. Massive production, hooky melodies, and undeniable groove make this a must have album for all fans of metal and heavy rock.
After opening for many national acts and gaining a strong fan base, Stygian landed an opening slot for the band Soil. It was at this show they befriended bassist Tim King. After watching over the band for some time and seeing them develop into their own with a never say die/do it yourself attitude, Tim offered the band a Recording Deal through Mortal Music.
Through the power of the Internet (Myspace, Stygianrock.com, and I-Tunes), Stygian was able to reach loyal fans all over the world, most notably the U.K., Australia, Denmark, and Mexico. This enabled them to build a fan base off their first album Struggle, and set the stage for their new masterpiece Fury Rising.
The band recently hit the road with Mushroomhead for a 2 month trek across the U.S. in support of Fury Rising. They returned with a whole new fan base and great energy with headliners Mushroomhead.
