Hailing from Brisbane, Australia storms the young melodic death/groove metal act Chronolyth. After a heavy line-up change in the early days and renaming to resurrect as a new entity, the sonically driven band grew to become the product of Hamish McSorley (Vocals), Alex Nisiriou (Guitars), Jimmy Barrett (Bass), Ben Constable (Guitars) and Michael Gee (Drums). With founding members Alex Nisiriou and Hamish McSorley resulting as the only remaining members of the original line-up, the band's sound began to grow in a heavier direction.

The band would soon be featured on highly respected shows such as the Ye Gods of Metal 2012 Festival. Record label attention resulted in joining with Hardline Media within months of establishing themselves in the metal scene. Fans would begin to recognise Chronolyth particularly for their ever growing tight and energetic live shows, fuelled by engaging and heavy yet melodic music.

Chronolyth would finally release their debut lead single 'Bitter Reflection' in November 2012, receiving much attention from European countries such as Sweden and Finland while even seeking approval from highly regarded artists such as Deals Death. 'Bitter Reflection' would receive airplay both internationally (The Rock, New Zealand) and nationally (4ZZZ, Australia).

Chronolyth toured throughout Australia in early 2013 and are preparing to reappear at the Ye Gods of Metal Festival 2013 due to the positive response in the previous year. The band is scheduled to record their debut album in April 2013 alongside producer/engineer Nik Carpenter (Core Studios) to be mixed and mastered by the legendary Zeuss (Planet Z Studios).
