Myth (1985)

Myth are a West Haven, Connecticut-based band who were formed in July ’84, and are not to be confused with the Seattle-based band of the same name (Queensrÿche frontman Geoff Tate’s old band). The band’s four members are: Rob Schwartz (vocals), Roger Loiseau (guitar), Dan Lynch (bass) and Mark Minervini (drums).

Earlier last year Myth released a single on Metal Force Records (no relation!), ‘Metal To The Pedal’ / ‘Rock Or Die’, which sold over 1,000 copies locally in its first week of release. Of the two tracks, I much prefer the fast paced ‘Rock Or Die’ which boasts some impressive vocals from Rob Schwartz.

The band have also recorded a five-track demo of more recent material which, compared with the single, I found a little disappointing. Though tracks like ‘Metal Is The Way’ and ‘No End’ still had enough going for them to hold my attention with some interesting riffs and a well constructed approach. Myth should soon be releasing their debut album.
