Atlanta-based heavy metal boy band Zyx provide the soundtrack to the party that is life
On City Lights’ series “Speaking of Music,” local musicians share work and stories in their own voices.
In today’s segment, we feature Atlanta-based heavy metal boy band, Zyx [pronounced Zicks]. “Our music is the soundtrack to the party that’s life,” says Niko Maheras, guitarist and vocalist for the band.
“Our music is hard rock and there’s a lot of influence of metal and punk as well as music from the 50s and 60s,” says bassist Jackie Whiting. “We always jokingly say that our music is like a heavy metal boy band.”
“I’ve been into music as long as I can remember,” drummer and vocalist Alec Floyd said. “When I was like, 3,4, or 5 years old, my grandmother got me a guitar and to this day still can’t really play it, but at around 12, I got into drums and it really just clicked and been playing ever since.”
