Featured Band - Trihexyn


Trihexyn is a heavy metal band that utilizes beauty and brutality to create music that appeals to the most diverse range of tastes. Drawing inspiration from both classic and modern metal, Trihexyn continues to push the limits of convention and combines the best elements of several metal sub-genres. Trihexyn is also completely self-produced, doing everything from recording, mastering, and mixing to creating graphic images for the band. No matter what your tastes are, Trihexyn is an experience you won't soon forget.

Trihexyn was formed in 2005 by Greg Staub and Shawn Staub, cousins who both play guitar and share a love for metal. The band experienced a series of different musicians until Joe Baker, drummer, joined the band in 2008, bringing a solid rhythm section and recording know-how. After having no success finding bass players, Shawn Staub, after having always wanted to play bass, switched to playing bass in 2013, opening up the lead guitar spot for Guillaume Radde.

Trihexyn has two full-length albums, Omni Contemptus (2009) and Of Death and Desire (2012). They're currently working on their third CD, currently untitled, slated for release in 2014.
