Founded in 2004, the Villach/Carinthia based band Thytopia has come a long way from an underground four-piece to receiving increasing critical recognition, especially following the release of their debut Bleeding Earth in 2008. Whilst rewarding their live audiences across Central Europe with energetic performances, Thytopia has proven not to turn a blind eye to the issues of its day.

Currently a five-piece, Thytopia have refocused their song writing to expand their blues/rock influences as well as explore the darker but also more sophisticated realms of their musical approach. The band’s wide-ranging song-craft has lead them from decidedly Rock’n Roll-inspired riffs toward increasingly intricate song structures and musical sophistication without ever losing sight of metal’s long-standing tradition, making Thytopia’s second full-length release Apparatus Diaboli (2014) another enthralling testimony of their masterful musical Approach.
