TYRANEX was formed in Stockholm, Sweden in December 2005 by guitarist Linnea Landstedt and singer Paloma Estrada. We wanted to create a band to take the listeners back to the 80: s metal sound. The hunting for other members started immediately and soon we had a full line-up where Stefan Thylander became the bassplayer. After some weeks of rehearsing we recorded 3 songs in a local studio and those were put on the first demo we did.

In the end of 2006 Paloma left the band and Linnea was chosen to be the new singer. With the new kind of singing style, more unclean than before and heavy metal high-pitched screams the sound changed a lot. We wrote more songs, played them fast and aggressive and the sound of old school metal was taking form.

In January 2008 TYRANEX recorded the demo “Blade of The Sacrificer”. The release made people around the world interested in the band. We got great responses and the demo was sold out in 252 copies.

The rest of the year 2008 and 2009 became a period for us when we played live. We had a lot of shows in Stockholm but also in other cities of Sweden. We got our first gig abroad – Göttingen, Germany and later we played in Helsinki, Finland too.
During this period we also recorded our next demo “The Evil has Arrived”, which was released in April 2009.

In spring 2010 we had a change of drummer. Johannes Lindström was chosen to be the new one for Tyranex

In April we signed a record contract with Infernö Records and the planning of recording our debut album got started.
The album – “Extermination has begun” was released in June 2011. After the release gig in Stockholm, Sweden we were booked to our first big festival. Jalometalli took place in Oulo, Finland in august the same year and where we shared the same stage with big-name bands such as Evil Dead, Entombed, Sepultura, Sodom, Oz, Nifelheim, Napalm death.

With good response we were later booked to famous Metal Assault Festival in Würzburg, Germany we’re we played in front of the biggest crowd we had this far. One hour set for 1000 people and we returned with empty bags of sold our merchandise. Metal Assault Festival has been one of the highlights in this bands history.

Promoting the record took us to places we had never been before – Spain, Netherlands, France and citys in Germany and Finland.

Plans of a second album have already begun…


Existing since late 2005, TYRANEX has already had many members coming and going. We are careful to choose members with the same goal and intensions to push the band further and become something more than just another band.

We want to thank every member of TYRANEX, you have all made contributions in one way or another and we wouldn’t have been what we are if it wasn’t for you!
