Thyrane was a black metal band from Kemi, Finland. They were signed to Spikefarm Records for the majority of their releases and disbanded in 2006.

Thyrane was formed by Blastmor in 1994 when he and two other musicians began playing together. After going through several line-up changes, Blastmor found guitarist Daemon and bass player R. Grönholm in 1996. 1997 saw the introduction of Avather, a second guitarist, into the band. They entered Tico-Tico Studio and recorded their "Black Harmony" demo. Woodcut Records were interested. Thyrane's first full-length album "Symphones Of Infernality", was released in 1999. R Grönholm departed due to personal reasons, forcing Daemon to handle bass, and Blastmor the lead guitar as well as the vocals. One year later Spikefarm Records would sign Thyrane and they would record their second full-length album "The Spirit Of Rebellion".

"The Spirit Of Rebellion" received very positive reviews. Spikefarm Records then re-released "Black Harmony" in conjunction with The Dead Beginners' MCD. After the release, Thyrane toured France, Germany, Holland, Italy, Croatia, Austria, Switzerland and Hungary with Ancient and Stormlord.

The release of "Hypnotic" in 2003 followed. The band took an interesting turn with this album. Instead of playing the speedy, aggressive black metal packed full of double-kick drumming, they stepped into the industrial metal circle briefly. With their last CD "Travesty of Heavenly Essence" they returned to their previous style only keeping a slight industrial metal influence.

The band called it quits in May 2006.
