"some music was meant to stay underground..."


Formed: 1999
From: Vancouver, Canada
Last Known Status: Active


Formed in early 1999, Cyanotic hit the ground running in the Vancouver music scene and hasn't looked back. The sound is best described as a balance of the beautiful with the brutal, the melodic with the dirge. A reviewer recently described the music like this: …this wonderful bit of twisted sickness rammed its way through my speakers, full force. No time to ease into things, they jump straight into it, and never ever stop. Cyanotic believes in the value of a strong song over a good gimmick, an energetic and tight live show over makeup and masks, and integrity and honesty over packaged aggression. Opening for such acts as Disturbed, Mudvayne, Nothingface, Endo, and Strapping Young Lad within months of inception, Cyanotic has gained notoriety quickly and is poised for the next level.

Cyanotic music has appeared in two extreme sports videos and is being spun religiously by local college radio and Internet radio stations around North America.

Cyanotic consists of Conan Freeman - Vocals/Guitar, Cory McBain - Guitar/Keyboards, Lee Jeffers - Bass/Vocals, and Tom Peterson - Drums. Conan and Tom, the core members of Cyanotic, met through a local Vancouver trade magazine in January 1999 and began building the foundation of the band. By November 1999, the lineup had been solidified with the additions of Cory on lead guitar and Lee on bass, both handpicked from other Vancouver bands.
