Get Ready to Mosh

Forward Unto Dawn are gearing up to ignite pits across Canada.

Halifax, Nova Scotia-based deathcore band Forward Unto Dawn are taking the heavy riffs and smooth grooves of their recently released EP ALPHA on the road. Joined by their brothers in metal, SINTHETIK, The Parallel and The Luminary, the ALPHA Release Tour is set to open up the pit, and assault all of the senses.

In the words of Forward Unto Dawn bassist, Devan Smith:

“Not only is it exciting for us to continue to push ALPHA, the album we all worked so hard on and are so proud of, but this is also our first trip out of the Maritimes. Intrepid Bookings set us up with stellar bands that we are ecstatic to work with. The gents in SINTHETIK will be along for the entire ride, while The Parallel will be crossing the Maritimes with us then passing the torch to The Luminary for dates through August. It is an awesome feeling to be able to bring Forward Unto Dawn’s music to an entirely new scene and to have the opportunity to play alongside the diverse talent that exists across Canada.”

About AGGRESSION:

Formed in 1985 under the original moniker “Asylum” to be later changed to AGGRESSION, the speed metallers unleashed their 1986 demo “Forgotten Skeleton”, (which saw an album release in 2005) and their debut full length “The Full Treatment” in 1987, which lead them to become one of the most popular bands to rise out of the Quebec and Canadian metal scene. With their manager at the time (Johnny Hart), AGGRESSION quickly became a household name with their concerts sold out everywhere and a fan base that grew from hundreds to thousands in no time.

Other bands such as Metallica, Slayer, Exodus, Hallow’s Eve, Destruction and others all wanted to see the beast for themselves during tour stops in Montreal. Playing numerous concerts with bands such as Anvil, Celtic Frost, Voïvod, Nuclear Assault, Agnostic Front, D.R.I., Possessed, Dark Angel, Crumbsuckers, Sacrifice and others, AGGRESSION decided to call it quits in 1989 due to external influences.

BIG|BRAVE – Southern Lord Announces The Signing Of Montreal Trio

Posted in Music, rock bands, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , on May 25, 2015 by Metal Odyssey

Big Brave - promo band pic - 2015 - #010525MO

Southern Lord is pleased to announce the signing of Montreal trio, BIG|BRAVE.

The three-piece plays sincere, long-form out-rock that ventures in to different directions, at times mournful and unsettling, their music plays out in to moon-bleached grunge where serene vocals crumble over scraping guitars bled of melody.

The new BIG|BRAVE album is penciled in for a late summer release, recorded with Efrim Menuck (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra) at Hotel2Tango. This will add to a growing discography comprising their debut EP An Understanding Between People (2013) and the debut LP Feral Verdure, which they recorded at Paradise Studios with Jon Boles, and self-released in September 2014. There’s high expectation of great things to come…

Stay tuned for more news from Southern Lord and BIG|BRAVE.
