Maxdmyz | Imperative Management:

Maxdmyz were born in an explosion of colour, creativity and defiant free-thinking in the late ‘90s, taking influence and inspiration from wherever they pleased. This exciting, barrier breaking attitude to music making is something they’ve carried with them ever since. Taking a core of powerful metal they twist and sculpt, graft and adorn, transform it into unique and fiery forms.

At the heart of the Maxdmyz sound is vocalist and founder member Twister – a formidable, constant presence with a voice that can convey every emotion that the eclectic music demands. Many others have fought beneath the Maxdmyz standard over the years, contributing their talents to the ever-changing sound, but Twister has remained steadfast, a guiding hand upon the tiller. The current ensemble of gifted musicians that have pledged themselves to the Maxdmyz cause is perhaps the most potent in the band’s history, featuring innovative, powerhouse drummer Jamie, ingenious keyboard manipulator Vortex and two recent recruits – Filon, a guitarist with metal in his veins and bass player Jamison who harnesses the overdriven thunder that roars at the heart of the beast.

The most recent Maxdmyz release, Alchemical Metal, hit the streets in mid April 2017, and took everything to a new level for the band; it transformed them, redefined them and destroyed any other attempt at definition. Maxdmyz became Alchemical Metal. In a world where no existing label was adequate they created their own. Alchemical Metal is the collision of science and sorcery, the fusing of soul and steel, the transmutation of base metal into gold.

The EP was preceded by a video, a magnificent dystopian vision of our inevitable future, that accompanied the jackhammer power of single ‘All To Hell’, which opened a doorway into the electrifying world of Alchemical Metal, inviting listeners to step across the threshold and surf the waves of colour and magic, to ride on the razor’s edge with the sonic rebels of Maxdmyz. Live shows in support of the Alchemical Metal release included appearances at the Renaissance Alternative Music Festival, headlining the inaugural Mad Max themed Apocalyptica: Road To Ruin event and shows at the Camden Underworld with the likes of Tengger Cavalry, Formicarius, Ost+Front, Fleisch and Auger. These shows have all become part of the rich history of Maxdmyz which has, over their lengthy career, seen them play many prestigious venues, including the Torture Garden in New York.

Early 2019 saw Maxdmyz playing The Dome in London’s Tufnell Park as part of Die Kur’s 20th Anniversary celebrations, The Electrowerkz in Islington – returning again to the bill of the Renaissance Alternative Music Festival – and at Southend’s famous Chinnery’s with management stable mates Forged In Black. However, behind the scenes the band were writing furiously for their next album and were soon ensconced in the legendary Parlous Studios with producer Neil Haynes (Immicus, The Fallen, Sacred Mother Tongue etc). This new album promises to be the greatest sonic achievement of Maxdmyz’ career to date and 2019 their most successful year.
