"This band is actually interesting"- Joey Sturgis
"Loud, Heavy, and Dramatic in all the right ways" - Underock Magazine
" Powerful"- From the Depths Entertainment
Aviyn has been writing songs together since 2006. Some of these songs have made it to our live shows and some have never left the practice area, but all of them have been a result of us wanting to share an honest piece of ourselves with our fans. We can’t imagine not being able to write music or not being able to connect with our fans and music lovers alike.
In the past three years we have released two early production CDs, “Better off Dead”(2009) and “Reflections”(2010), while playing a handful of tours and hundreds of shows with bands such as Asking Alexandria, Motionless in White, Oh Sleeper, Jamie’s Elsewhere, It Dies Today, 36 Crazyfists, August Burns Red, The Misfits, and many others. We are set to release out debut self titled full length album June 26th. We acquired Nick Sampson for production/mixing/mastering of the album. He is most notable for his work with the bands; I am Abomination, In Fear and Faith, and Adestria.
What kind of music is Aviyn? We are considered to be a "metalcore" band with a focus on melodic structure and some progressive production. Some put us in the same light as Asking Alexandria and The Devil Wears Prada. A quote from Underock Magazine describes our sound as "loud, heavy, and dramatic in all the right ways". With all of us being self-taught musicians, we have an extensive catalog of influences ranging across various genres and time periods. Unearth, Atreyu and Killswitch Engage have really helped lay the ground roots for which we have built our musical consciousness on.
We are all from a small town outside of the Tulsa, OK area where we still reside and practice. Our small town surroundings have helped play a substantial role in our ability to be so diligent in our music and the chance to perfect ourselves sonically. Our music is about people. It’s our dream to have a common language- to be great communicators. Our music may not change the world, but could change lives. We dedicate ourselves to the music we make and especially to the people who support us and our ideas as entertainers.

"Most groups formed in the 2000's have almost and exact opposite affect on me than Aviyn. Aviyn has a unique and beautiful sound as well as a new kind of hardcore with amazing music composition and some of the most beautiful vocals and lyrics ive ever heard. Aviyn has an affect on me daily. Not a day goes by without Aviyn on my mind or in the stereo. One of the things i love most is being able to ask questions about the music and lyrics if im dumbfounded. The lyrics meanings are just as complex and phenomenal as the music. Its not hard to tell the members hearts and souls are put into every note. Just listening to Aviyn at home has no comparison to a live Aviyn show. There is something very special and strong when it comes to being around other Aviyn fans who are just as dedicated to the band as i am, and as Aviyn is dedicated to their fans and their amazing music." -Email
