Band Biographies: Wykan

Founded in 2017 by guitarist Jeremy Perkins, the project plays a blend of Psychedelic Doom / Heavy Blues / Stoner Rock and Black Metal in the classic format of bass, drums, and guitar. Their experimental and massive sounding music is best described as Pink Floyd meeting Black Sabbath meeting Mayhem for those who have never heard the band.

In just under 8 months of the band being founded, WYKAN unleashed their debut EP “Solace” to the masses in April 2018. The EP delivered a heavy brew, blending a soup of atmospheric groove, spirits of heavy riffs and hot tubes overridden and pushed to the limits in a ceremonial manner. As they continue on their path of ceremonial heaviness, WYKAN returns in 2019 with their sophomore EP “Brigid: Of The Night” to follows the band’s plan of releasing an EP every six to ten months and keep fans on a ceremonial run of emotion and space.

“We want to give fans a trip for the mind, without barriers and hooks, just plain vibes and atmosphere. This next EP, overall, is more of the classic riffing which goes with each genre I touch and blend in each of the songs. As a thematic “Brigid: Of The Night” is about the Celtic Goddess known as Brigid. The whole EP’s thematic and three songs are a historical take on the cultural ceremonies & festivities in Ode to Brigid. Also one will find that the lyrics are based on the deities representation and relationship held strong between  the Celtic life of pre-Christian Ireland and Brigid.” says Perkins.

The band’s line up for the EP features guest drummer Simon McKay of The Agonist rattling his talents on track #3 Reul-Iuil Bride (Star of Brigid) along WYKAN and EOHUM founder Jeremy Perkins on guitar, vocalist Barrie Butler (Eohum, ex-Tard), bassist Corey Thomas, best known for his own Jazz ensemble Backwater Township and drummer Dug Kawliss (ex-Tempete) who is on tracks #1 Imbolc (The Cleansing) and #2 Breo-Saighead (Triple Goddess).

“Brigid: Of The Night” EP is slated for release on June 7, 2019, and will be available on Bandcamp as a $1 EP or more Pay-What-You-Want download
