YYNOT is gearing up for their second album and just released the track, “Chemical Burn.” Tim Starace once again offers up some monster tone on a tune that goes from hard-hitting, to laid back, then grooves, and back again.

YYNOT: The Body Electric

I’ve been a fan of YYNOT for some time. I really dig their original work, as well as their covers of old school Rush songs. I was surprised to see them covering ’80s era Rush in this video, but as always, they nailed it.

Groove – Episode #48: Tim Starace

It’s hard to argue that Tim Starace from YYNOT is just another Geddy Lee clone playing Rush’s fabled music. Both statements would be incorrect. Anybody who can even play close to the brilliance that is Geddy on bass is worthy of attention, and Tim brings a whole next level of creativity, sound, and energy to the bass.

YYNOT has another video out, and this time, it features one of their original tunes. “Etheria” was written by guitarist Billy Alexander, and as always, sports that growly bass by Tim Starace. The buzz around this band is growing, which comes as no surprise to us. The tune is available on their .
