BRIMFIELD — Few bands enjoy much success during their first few shows, but Tides of Time has proven to be an exception to the rule.

Despite the current members of the progressive rock and metal band only performing in a handful of shows prior to the recent Battle of the Bands in Hartford, Conn., they managed to win the competition. The band consists of five local men who met while studying music at Holyoke Community College, including Mikey Splaine, of Brimfield, who grew up in Holland and attended Tantasqua Regional High School.

"HCC is one of the only community colleges accredited for a music program, so we are all formally trained and understand music at a scholarly level," said Splaine, who joined the band in February as a vocalist because their previous singer moved to Sweden.
