In 2013, after five years of silence, Byzantine released their self titled comeback album to overwhelming acclaim. Garnering multiple album of the year nods, it proved that the unsigned artist can hold their own against the big budget bands. Self released and financed through a successful Kickstarter campaign, Byzantine debuted as the #1 most added metal album at College Rock Radio and stayed in the Top 10 for 7 straight weeks. The album also debuted at #5 on iTunes top albums the week it was released, beating out new efforts by Five Finger Death Punch, Kill Switch Engage and Newsted. Now, Byzantine returns with it's fifth studio album, To Release Is To Resolve, teaming up with PledgeMusic to give their fans the ultimate DIY experience. To Release Is To Resolve will most certainly solidify Byzantine as one of the most consistent and continual genre-bending heavy metal bands of the last two decades!
