About:

Power Thrash champions SANKTUARY hail from the harsh and blisteringly cold of the deep far North of Canada’s Yukon Territory, situating themselves in the city of Whitehorse (pretty far north, like the Siberia of Canada eh!). They have been trekking across the country for the past 6 years to bring their fierce and dynamic high-speed riffs, catchy hooks and belted out lyrics to the Metal crowds.

A collective vision that began in high school with a group of like-minded teens fed up with the constraints of mainstream music who wanted to emulate the lifestyles of their favourite bands. Their straight-forward, no-bullshit attitudes shape their signature brand of Heavy Metal, which has led them to release the full length, 2013’s ‘Something Fierce’ that reached #19 on the national college radio loud charts, 2011’s ‘Tundrastruck’ split with Nova Scotia’s Black Moor and Montreal’s Metallian, plus two EPs – 2010’s ‘Black Magic’ and 2009’s self-titled.

Members of the band write harmoniously, basing each song off of a key riff from either Alan Binger (vocals and guitar), Glen Emond (guitar), or Cole Hume (bass) and then Anders Grasholm (drums) works his magic on the rhythm of each tune.

2016 see the band’s return with their sophomore album ‘Winter’s Doom’ set for release on January 22nd, 2016. The album features seven killer high-speed, breakneck Thrash Metal tracks inspired by the Yukon’s far North they call home, along with other issues such as politics, technology, etc..

“In the title track and album cover we portray ourselves as Heavy Metal warriors thriving in a habitat where most would perish instantaneously.That’s our homeland, the Yukon.” comments the band.

Stay tuned for what Sanktuary has to offer for fans! Visit their Facebook page for more details at: www.facebook.com/sanktuarymetal.

Forward Unto Dawn - promo tour flyer - Canada - Summer - 2015

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.

_________________________

Discography:

*band line up for recordings was Denis Sasquatch Barthe (guitar and backup vocals), Botcher (vocals), Burn (guitar), Dug (bass) and Gate (drums and backup vocals).

*1985 – *4 track demo

*1986 – *Live (14 track live album)

*1986  -* 4 Track demo

*1986 – Forgotten Skeleton (originally recorded in 1986 and later released in 2004)

About Arrival Of Autumn:

A band name inspired by Opeth lyric’s (thanks to drummer Ty Fox) and influenced by various genres ranging from melodic death to groove metal to progressive to rock n’ roll, AOA’s catalogue has grown rapidly with two self-releases in 2014. First it was their debut EP ‘Endless Nights’ in March followed by their ten track full length ‘Shadows’ in September.

Touching on personal issues to triumphing demons as a band, ‘Shadows’ with a dash of dark lyrics and tracks such as The Court Of Owls to There’s No Angels Here to the infectious chorus of Like Fire demonstrates AOA are not just evolving, but are a live force raging to be discovered by the masses.

L-R – Dave Waram – Guitar, Davis Hay – Vocals, Brent Bell – Drums, Stephanie Bell – Bass

______________________________

Edmonton, AB’s Death Metal crusaders KRYOSPHERE are proud to announce their ‘West Koast Katastrophe Tour’ that will kick off in Nelson, BC on September 18 at Kootenay Coop Radio for in studio performance and interview on the Nelson On Nelson show and wrap up in Edmonton, AB on September 28th.

“We have been waiting a while now to get out to the West coast, and we are stoked to be getting all the way to Vancouver Island for two dates. With all the festivals we have played this summer so far, it will be nice to seal the deal so to speak and do it night after night for different crowds. In Vancouver we get to play a one-night special with ENTROPIA, which is going to be a hell of an introduction to the Vancouver metal scene. I mean for Brent our drummer, this will be a long time coming return to the big water, but the first for KRYOSPHERE. Also a big shout out to Terry Anderson of RTK for making this all a possibility, we wouldn’t be headed out if it wasn’t for his dedication. Support your local Metal scenes!” comments bassist Stephanie Bell.

TOUR PROMO VIDEO:

Maintaining a strong connection with the roots of old-school Death Metal, KROYOSPHERE, established in 2008, by drummer Brent Bell (ex-Spawned by Rot, ex-Butcher’d), Stephanie Bell on bass, Dave Waram on guitar, and Davis Hay on vocals have released two EPs, 2013’s ‘SOL’ and 2011 debut ‘At Six Feet’ with a follow-up in the works for late 2014 / early 2015. Combining memorable riffs, soaring solos, powerful vocals plus thumping bass drives to inventive and technical drumming, KRYOSPHERE has been able to draw crowds of Metal fans with hails horns high. The band has shared the stage with Putrescence, Dead Jesus, Unleash The Archers, West of Hell, Archspire and many more from the Western Canadian Metal scene.

ABOUT KRYOSPHERE:

Kryosphere at its core has always maintained strong connections with an old-school Death Metal sound, while embracing the new ideas of their younger peers. In short, they are a Modern Death Metal band that knows how to draw a crowd across the massive gulf of Metal fans.

Formed in 2008 by drummer Brent Bell (ex-Spawned by Rot, ex-Butcher’d) with line changes through its early years, Kryosphere finally solidified an identity with Brent Bell on drums, Stephanie Bell on bass, Dave Waram on guitar, and Davis Hay on vocals. Their debut EP “At Six Feet” was unleashed in 2011 and followed by their 2013 self-release EP “SOL”.

Great attention has been placed on song writing, and it shows on. The uniquely structured music of “SOL” has memorable riffs that are often lacking in today’s Metal. Soaring solos and powerful vocals accompany thick bang along sections, while thumping bass drives the overall feeling of every song. Inventive and technical drumming steer the band through multiple time changes and differing movements.

PROTOKULT – Progressive Folk Metal Band Reveal Artwork and Track Listing From Upcoming Album “No Beer In Heaven” – Out On August 8th

______________________________

Toronto, Ontario’s fun-loving, beer drinking progressive folk metal band PROTOKULT are proud to share with fans artwork and the track listing for their upcoming album ‘No Beer In Heaven’, set for official release on August 8th, 2014, to follow-up 2011’s EP ‘Marzena’ and 2009’s debut ‘Ancestral Anthems’.

“We are anxious and excited to finally unleash the first PROTOKULT full-length album with our current and talented lineup. Expect nothing short of pure, heathen prog-folk with a healthy traditional metal dosage in the mix. Our first single, ‘Get Me A Beer’ will be released early this July and expect the official video shortly thereafter! The video follows a story line which can be best described as “Spinal Tap meets folk-metal” and captures the band in an unpleasant, humorous yet all-too-realistic situation in which artists may find themselves in (we certainly have!)” – Martin Drozd

Years in the making and a few line up changes in the PROTOKULT camp, the Eastern European transplants have transformed progressive, folk and heavy metal influences into a twelve track adventurous trek, diving into themes of drinking, history and human endeavor. Mixing a duo vocal attack of melodic operatics, plus woodwinds from Ekaterina Pyatkova and high-spirited chanting growls from guitarist Martin Drozd, PROTOKULT showcase a diversified and powerful engagement that includes shredding with guitarist Vodnik, the pounding force of Mike Matveev on drums and the grooves of bassist Dawid Slowiak.

In additional news, PROTOKULT will be performing a Toronto CD release show on July 26th for hometown fans at Bovine Sex Club with support from locals Primalfrost, Tsargrad and Montreal’s Karkaos. (show details can found here)

_______________________________________

Upcoming Show Dates:

July 19 – The Apk – London, ON w/ Battlesoul, Primalfrost, Valhalla Rising

July 26 – Bovine Sex Club – Toronto, ON w/ Primalfrost, Karkaos, Tsargrad

_______________________________________

Although PROTOKULT is a Canadian-based group, the members come from various backgrounds (Polish, Irish, Russian, Czech) and the result is a marvelous mix of Canadian and international forces. The goal is to unite these cultures into one sound, balancing tradition and folklore with heavy, thrash and black metal for head-bangers everywhere.

With a beauty and the beast-like contrast between Ekaterina’s haunting vocals and the band’s metal onslaught, whether they are reinventing the wheel or carrying down the torch high, PROTOKULT has an exhilarating and fresh sound for the 21st century.

From the studio to the stage, PROTOKULT puts on a live show that can be best described as engaging, energetic and in essence, a live ritual — ‘A must-see act’, according to the Emergenza festival.

protokult-no-beer-in-heaven- promo cover pic - 2014-album-cover

‘No Beer In Heaven’ was recorded at Spectre Sound Studios (Bloodshoteye feat. Randy of Lamb of God; and Woods of Ypres, one of the BWBK Top 30 Canadian albums) and will be released August 8, 2014.

Critical Praise:

“They belong amongst the ranks of bands like Moonsorrow and Skyforger…Almost every song twists and turns through several folk metal transformations, without ever tapping into cheesy or overly tired clichés.” – Metal Observer (2010 review for Ancestral Anthems)

“Their songs pulse and writhe like a sinuous living thing.” – Exclaim (2012 review of Marzena)

Untimely Demise - Systematic Eradication - promo cover pic

4.5 METAL Fists Out Of 5!

Metalfistredbckgrndsmall4Half - Metal Fist - metal odyssey

UNTIMELY DEMISE are from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Thrash Metal and Death Metal collide in a fireball of gargantuan glory, on Systematic Eradication; with healthy slices of True and Speed Metal adding to the Metal delicacy! Untimely Demise is, in my Metal opinion, a Metal band that has an enormous cross-over appeal to Metal fans of widespread Metal tastes. I’m certain the majority shall agree, the cover artwork for Systematic Eradication kicks quantum ass. Ed Repka is an artistic Metal genius.

With plenty of melodic guitar solos and groove infested rhythm throughout, Systematic Eradication is a Metal release from 2013 that must be highlighted here on Metal Odyssey. This Untimely Demise album comes across with such a genuine attack of Thrash sound and energy; I cannot resist listening to Systematic Eradication, in its entirety, each time I reach for it! Vocally and musically impressive, as ALL eight songs flow seamlessly together, with each song having ample Metal uniqueness of structure and enjoyability. A fabulous Metal album! Metal be thy name. – Stone

EDGE OF ATTACK – BIO:

No good could possibly come out of the frigid Northern lands of Alberta, you say? Well, sorry to tell you, there’s an exception to every rule. Enter smoldering power-thrash five-piece Edge of Attack.

Combining haunting vocals, shredding guitars, complex bass lines, furious drumming and choral and symphonic arrangements with surprising depth, Edge of Attack has not only taken the metal scene by storm, but also by surprise. Having been featured in Revolver magazine, you’d think the band has surely been around for years, but truth be told, they’ve accomplished all this while releasing no more than two singles.

Representing the changes that have taken place and the reinvention of Edge of Attack’s sound, the self-titled album, which was produced by guitarist/vocalist Jurekk Whipple himself and is soon to be released with Spread the Metal Records, is, simply put, a reawakening and rebirthing of power metal with thrash creeping its way into the picture.

Aug 1, 2012 – The Zoo – Winnipeg, MB

August 2, 2012 – Black Pirates Pub, Thunder Bay, ON

August 11, 2012 – Heavy MTL Fest – Montreal, QC

BIO:

Aggressive, hilarious, heavy and bloody and, just as importantly, filled with trans fats and cholesterol, Montreal’s Metal five-piece Dark Century welds together Death, Thrash, Grind and Hardcore, striving to always stay fresh.

Following their 2008 debut, Days of the Mosh, the band’s yet-to-be-titled second album is set to be unleashed on the masses later this year.

“One of the main differences is the fact that there is a second guitarist in the band now. This brings harmonies and solos that were not present before. The way we are recording is also different and our gear has evolved over the time. This time around we are also working with Chris Donaldson,” says guitarist Éric Duranleau.

“All in all, we are taking a big step from the previous album in order to put out something that sounds heavier, more aggressive and more in your face. We keep it simple and efficient. We are not reinventing the wheel. It is the logic evolution for us from Days Of The Mosh.”

With an unrivalled live show accompanying their music – “We like to bring the party on stage, we’ll throw ourselves around for the whole set and often feel it for a few days. When you come see a show that has Dark Century on the bill, you’ll get exactly that: a show” – it’s no wonder Dark Century was one of the two finalists at the Heavy MTL Battle of the Bands, winning the chance to play Heavy MTL this summer.

As Duranleau puts it, “Dark Century is bacon. It’s greasy, fat and crunchy and it is an essential element of any unbalanced diet!

TITANS EVE – “Life Apocalypse” An Inferno Of Thrash From A Fast Rising Metal Battalion

Posted in Heavy Metal, heavy metal albums, metal music, Music, rock music, rock music news, Thrash Metal, thrash metal bands with tags , , , , , , on July 12, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

TITANS EVE – 2012 has proven to be a quantum Metal leap forward for the Thrash Metal battalion from Vancouver, BC, known as Titans Eve. With their second full-length, Life Apocalypse, being released on July 13th, the Metal momentum for Titans Eve is on full-scale-Thrash-throttle. As an opening act for the legendary KORN back on June 29th, along with Summer tour dates opening for the supergroup KILL DEVIL HILL and also legendary ANVIL, Titans Eve is a Thrash force that have caught the attention of their Metal peer elite.

As I’ve listened to Life Apocalypse, I’ve come to realize that Titans Eve isn’t trying to sound like the other guys. Titans Eve hasn’t run off with old school fever. Titans Eve hasn’t caved into an over-swollen modern persona of sound either. Instead, Titans Eve truly plays their own scorching brand of Thrash Metal. Yes, the overall feel, vibe and sound that Titans Eve has tapped into has given me every reason to believe they will be around in another decade… or two.

When it pertains to level of heaviness, the Thrash from Titans Eve is not nearly as punishing as Slayer or present day Exodus, nevertheless, Titans Eve still plays Thrash in the heavy vein as ANVIL, AnthraxDeath Angel and Testament’s 1992’s offering The Ritual. Trust me, Titans Eve doesn’t need to go extreme, this band gets their Thrashin’ point across with admirable skill and polish.

_________________________

Brian Gamblin’s vocals and the totality of musicianship is very refined and refreshing, with no glimmer of trying to strip things down to be acknowledged as “extra cool.” I’ve found Life Apocalypse to be free of any fillers, however, a musical detour is taken with A Wound That Never Heals and it’s a mellow break in the Thrash action. This instrumental is an excellent listen and legendary Thrash bands before Titans Eve have chilled out with a mid-tempo/mellow song and/or instrumental too.

Life Apocalypse is an inferno of Thrash to get your ears into. My favorite song here is Frozen In Time; still this album as a whole is a 2012 favorite. The shredding, sizzling solos, riffage, hammering rhythm section and gang vocals are all here, with confident, strong and expressive vocals from Brian Gamblin. With the young guns of Thrash, the likes of HemoptysisWarbringer, HAVOK, Bonded By Blood and Titans Eve, I can rest easy knowing that this beloved genre will remain a Metal force to be reckoned with for many, many years to come.

Buy Life Apocalypse and it will serve you Metal right. In keeping their sonic identity as unique as possible, Titans Eve have weaved decades of Thrash elements together and are undeniably real. Thrash Metal fans of any generation should appreciate what Titans Eve have created for quality songs on this album. Metal fans of any genre will know this is the stuff when they hear it too. Metal be thy name.

Brian Gamblin – Guitars and lead Vocals

Kyle Gamblin – guitars and vocals

Jesse Hord – bass

Casey Ory – drums
