Thyne Scabbard was formed in 2002 by vocalist Sky "Fire" Heydecke, drummer Travis Robidoux, and guitarist Dylan Bloodshed. They immediately recorded a demo, and functioned as a trio for awhile. Chris Garcia then added a second guitar, while Isaac Merfalen soon followed on bass. Fueled by Heydecke's intense vocals, Thyne Scabbard has since showcased a brand of metal that is as epic as it is aggressive. Their goal as a live band is to put on an exceptionally intriguing and brutal performance, while allowing for an honest look at their Christian faith. Heydecke's lyrics challenge Satan and his legions while simultaneously adoring the one true God.
Their first full-length album, Redemption, released on April 22, 2006, has received critical acclaim from Uprise magazine, Indie Vision Music, and Rain City Ambience.
