Tylor Dory Trio‘s new record “Unsought Salvation” officially drops on December 21st, but before it’s out, the band has teamed up with MetalInsider.net for the album’s full stream premiere HERE.
Full of enlightening riffs and spicy drumming, topped with delectable vocals, the album is the perfect listen to comfort you as the winter nights grow longer. The full length’s bass, drums, and guitars were recorded in Norway with Christer Cederberg at Cederberg Studios in Kristiansand during February 2017, as depicted in the band’s music video ‘East of Eden‘. Vocals and synth were recorded in their hometown of Edmonton at The Laboradory.
TDT explains the full length:
“We believe that ‘Unsought Salvation’ perfectly captures the band’s complete sound – combining some of the lighter, upbeat moments from our first self titled EP, the darker, moodier atmosphere of the ‘Carried Away’ EP, and more concise, mature songwriting than each of our previous releases. There’s still plenty of odd times, dynamic changes, unconventional chord progressions, playful drum and bass interplay, and slippery guitar solos, but we also focused on trimming the fat off of our arrangements so that we served the songs as opposed to showing off our musical abilities.”
Tylor Dory Trio was conceived in late 2012 by guitarist/vocalist Tylor Dory and drummer Jonathan Webster. Wanting to step aside from playing in extreme metal bands, Dory and Webster decided to form the duo to explore the music close to their hearts – proggy weird stuff. The trio was completed in late 2013 after the addition of their bassist Slava Fedossenko.
Bringing together influences like Opeth, Alice In Chains, and Rush; TDT is characterized by proficient musicianship, tight songwriting, and powerful hooks. It’s progressive metal that isn’t pretentious. TDT loves pushing the boundaries of what a power trio can accomplish, but above all else, it’s about the songs.
Musically, they take their fans on a journey through light and dark tonalities, crushing heaviness to ethereal cleanliness, through peaks and valleys that end up coming full circle.

“A therapy session during the synth backed opening of “The Righteous and the Rest” about being prisoners of our own thoughts is certainly a novel way to start an album. The surprise is that after the first wave of synth backed Progressive Metal riffs play out, we are greeted by the bright riffs of the likes of Intervals with some Grunge era vocals that you wouldn’t expect to find as an accompaniment but work incredibly well. How Tylor Dory himself can manage to sing this well and play the riffs he does here live can only be a thing of wonder.” – Metal Noise
“so much of Unsought Salvation will bring a joyous smile to the face as it twists and turns in ways few can even imagine.” – Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life
“Canadian band TYLOR DORY TRIO sounds very much like a jazz piece, but nothing could be more incorrect. What you get here is guitar driven progressive metal of class, and actually with some unique or at least unusual twists… They have their own style – sometimes heavy, sometimes soft. And there are mystical parts as well, with melancholy. An interesting acquaintance.” – Melodic.net
“The highlights on Unsought Salvation are threefold. The main highlight is the epic closing track, “Cenotaph.” It’s a fourteen-minute excursion into the realms of prog metal, replete with dexterous fretboard work, a left-field solo halfway through, some interesting piano work and stellar groove, and all told a solid, full-bodied arrangement. “East of Eden” also displays strong writing/arrangement techniques, while “The Fallen Man” displays sublime electronic augmentation and a killer sense of rhythm. All three songs, as well as the moody, intriguing “Into the Maelstrom,” also highlight a pretty cool feature of the album: every song segues into the next in a logical and compelling fashion, giving us the sense of listening to one cohesive, whole suite. It’s really well done.” – Angry Metal Guy
“les musiciens ont pris le temps et surtout le recul nécessaire pour nous offrir de fort bel manière une œuvre bien léchée, avec de belles trouvailles quant à l’arrangement et une recherche finement aboutie sur les voix qui rend l’ensemble plus que très sympathique. Pas mal de titres sortent du lot. Si vous recherchez de quoi mettre vos tympans au chaud pour cet hiver, vibrer sur des solos et autres riffs ou bien des rythmiques bien développées, alors penchez-vous sur cet album.” – ProgCritique
