Sumo Cyco is an independent, female fronted punk metal based band in Toronto, Canada. Their sound blends heavy metal guitars, with in your face blast beats, dance hall rhythms, and molten lava female vocals topping it off. Sumo Cyco’s secret weapon comes in the form of front-woman Sever, the alter-ego of former teen-pop sensation Skye Sweetnam.
Signed by Sony/ATV at the age of 14, Skye had performed in over twenty five countries before her 17th birthday, including 50 shows opening up for Britney Spears on the Onyx Hotel tour. She then decided to take her career in a different direction. Craving artistic control and rock’n’roll, she initiated her departure from the major label and formed Sumo Cyco.
