MYTHIC (USA/PA)


In early 1991, guitarist Dana Duffey contacted the all female band Derketa after seeing them in an underground fanzine to see if they were interested in adding a fourth member. At that time, the Pittsburgh based Derketa had actually broken up, unbeknownst to Dana who was living in Toledo, OH at the time. Dana decided to visit Pittsburgh, PA to meet with the remaining members of Derketa, former Wormhole and Master Mechanic bassist Mary Bielich and drummer Terri Heggen. All seemed to go well so Dana moved to Pittsburgh and the trio began writing music. It was also decided that Dana would be the vocalist and main lyricist for the band. The name Mythic was chosen and the band was officially born. Within a month a three song rehearsal tape was recorded on a 4 track recorder to spread the word throughout the underground scene. Later that same year they recorded an official demo entitled "The Immortal Realm" which was recorded live. This six song tape received heavy promotion, proving Mythic to be substantially more than an all girl novelty. Within a year of forming they were offered a MCD release from Relapse Records. Again, Mythic were eager to record and entered the studio immediately.  ‘Mourning In The Winter Solstice’ was released in 1992 on MCD, 7" record (both traditional black and limited blue vinyl) and cassette. Soon after this release, MYTHIC parted ways with Terri Heggen and a session drummer was used for what would be the final performance at the legendary Milwaukee Metalfest VI. After the festival, MYTHIC strangely disbanded. Dana promptly formed the notorious Black Metal band act DEMONIC CHRIST. Bielich went on to join the Doom band NOVEMBERS DOOM, Brian Griffin of BROKEN HOPE’s side project EM SINFONIA and by 2001 was a member of PENANCE. She would also figure in the scene as part of the political Punk band BEHIND ENEMY LINES.
