“Five Minutes With” Hard Rock/ Glam Metal Calgary band, Lÿnx

Lÿnx is a Hard Rock/ Glam Metal band hailing from Calgary, Canada. Their sound is highly inspired by classic rock & 80s rock. During the 2020 pandemic, the band was formed by former vocalist Lazer Wild and lead guitarist Blade. Soon after, bassist Fangs and drummer Flash joined and Lÿnx was formed. The band is currently fronted by Ja6ur on vocals, Blade on guitar, Fangs on bass and Flash on drums/percussion.

Connected by a shared love of 80s hair metal and hard rock, the band immediately set about writing original songs that embody the style and swagger of the past, while embracing the polished production and down-to-earth grit of their modern rock influences.

Lÿnx released their debut self-titled EP in February 2021 followed up by their second EP titled ‘Long Live Rock N Roll’ in September 2021 with Bullzhorn Records. Since their releases, the band has gained popularity through various reviews on different media platforms in Europe, Australia and North America. Having gained a reputation for their anthemic choruses, sizzling guitar solos and powerhouse vocals, Lÿnx has garnered a dedicated and eclectic international fan base.

The band has hit the stages with high energy and connected with their audiences through the love of Rock N Roll. The band aims to build on the momentum created by their released music and push their sound into even more extreme levels of Rock N Roll.
