TRIKL-TSHYN was formed in the spring of 1998. Shaun Melanson (lead vocals/guitar), Andre Genest (bass/backup vocals), Mike Blais (drums).
With a unique musical perspective TRIKL-TSHYN has created a stir in the city of Timmins rock community with an explosive and fresh approach to alternative/rock music. The band has created a multi-dimensional sound that is built on solid songwriting.
TRIKL-TSHYN is building upon a consistent fan base, that has been created over the years by their reputation for sounding great. In December of 2002, TRIKL-TSHYN won the Northern Ontario Xtreme Band Slam competition. In March 2003 the band went on to compete in the National Xtreme Band Slam held during C.M.W. against the top 13 unsigned bands in Canada. For review of the performance check www.chartattack.com
At times, TRIKL-TSHYN's lyrical content is serious and hard hitting and at others downright fun. The result is a potent collection of songs that are both melodic and infectious. TRIKL-TSHYN's influences come from a wide variety bands and great musicians such as Pearl Jam, Ozzy, Metallica.
An independent album titled "In my Head" is in progress, to be released in 2005, with a tour currently in the works for the summer.
A TRIKL-TSHYN show has all the energy that a larger venue or event would come to expect.
