Protosequence (Band Interview)

Today we speak to Protosequence. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band?  Protosequence was just an idea in our original vocalists head. After meeting Kyle, Marshall brought all the members (Logan, Parker, Kyle, Ryan) together to form Protosequence. After some time Joe was introduced into the band as the current vocalist. Once we secured this line up Protosequence were introduced into the Edmonton music scene. From there we toured throughout Alberta and dabbled into BC. As we progressed Ryan wanted to explore more of his life and that is where Jacob Teeple stepped up as our current bassist. 2017 has been a big year for us and looking forward to 2018. What’s your musical history? (Trained or […]

Decatur (Band Interview)

Today we chat to Decatur. What’s the history of your band? Decatur started while recording our debut record “Badder Than Brooklyn” with Joe Duplaniter at Silver Cord Studios in 2016. We had originally gone there to record under a different name. It was going to be the 5th record released by Jay “Beard” Sarrazin’s old band. But while recording the record the sound that was being created was nothing like Beard’s old band. And since the members that were now playing in that band were completely different and all new members, it was suggested by Joe Duplaniter, Taylor Bingley and Johann Meyer that maybe this would be the best time to start fresh. The members were different, the sound was […]

Doyle: As We Die (Album Review)

 

 Power. Power! POWER! Simply put: This is an album that is packed with power. My God, the power coming out of my speakers right now is something else entirely. This is “As We Die” from the brutal Doyle. The songs on this, 13 track, album are about as awesome as Metal can be. The guitar work is driving; the drumming is commanding; and the vocal style will leave you in awe… and a little frightened. Kiss Me As We Die Beast Like Me God Of Flies Run For Your Life Darkside Witchcraft Kind Of The Undead Virgin Sacrifice We Belong Dead Show No Mercy Dark Gods Arise Blood On The Axe Night Of Sin Now all the songs on this […]

G.L.O.W. – Emotions (Album Review)

 

 Many of you will think that today’s review will be biased as we are friends with the audio-dream spinner. And you know what? You are correct. This is G.L.O.W. with his first record-label produced album “Emotions“. Firstly I’d like to congratulate Mr. G.L.O.W for being signed up by the brilliant Dark A.C.E Records. Secondly, I’d like to simply say: “Well done, Richard! Nice to see your work getting a professional release.” (Wookiee, do you think if we keep this up he’ll buy us lunch? -Shadow). Right, so let’s get on with this review. The songs on this 10 track album, as you can no doubt expect, are, as is G.L.O.W.’s style, a veritable banquet of hard EBM/Industrial sounds, styles and […]

Hogan’s Goat: Hogan’s Goat (Album Review)

 

 There is something wonderful about actual, real, proper bloody Hard Rock. I am not certain what that something is; but I know that I love it. Case in point, I recently received a backside kicking debut album. This is Hogan’s Goat with their album, Hogan’s Goat. Now as debut albums go this one -a 10 track monster- is quite simply an exercise in perfection. The songs show you their true colours and potential from the start. Not once does the album lose its path or abandon its style in favour of simplistic and rehashed nonsense. Indeed, this album gives you quality from start to finish.

Moscow: Queen Of Sin (Album Review)

 

 There is something wonderful about EP’s. I know that I have said this before, but it is true. EP’s are a great way of getting your music out there without killing yourself making an LP; they are a fantastic way of whetting people’s appetites, titillating their senses, exciting their souls; they are simply an awesome way of spreading the creative word. This is the brilliant EP “Queen Of Sin” by the bloody talented Moscow. Now as this is an EP -and thus it is nothing more than a first course in a banquet you are left waiting for- you would think that the hors d’oeuvres served would be pleasurable, but not too amazing. But you’d be wrong. As EP’s go, […]

Aeraco: Baptized By Fire (Album Review)

 

 Metal! Metal! Metal! Metal! More Metal! (I do hope you’re writing this all down?) There are few things that knock people out of their beds, and awaken the dead, like the explosive sound of Metal. This is “Baptized By Fire” by the brutal Aeraco. The songs on this album are, quite simply put, the epitome of Metal. There’s kick. There’s power. There’s aggression and style on multiple levels. Back With Vengeance. Cum To Rock. Baptized By Fire. Stab In Dim Light. Tequila And Lime. All I know. Withered Rose. In Hell We Trust. In Vain. Bad. Fighting The Fame. Lone Wolf. The Outlaw. Songs such as… Well, let’s be honest here. No one song stands out for me. Instead, each […]

nttx: Of Beauty and Chaos (Album Review)

 

 It has been a few years since we last heard from the EBM/Industrial side of Canada, and I can honestly say that the return of Canadain-Doof-Doof to 925 is a welcome sight. This is “Of Beauty and Chaos“ by the amazing nTTx. The songs on this short album, though few in number, kick like a full-length album. Songs like “DarkMove” and “Prey” and “True” and “Earth” come at you from a thousand directions, with a thousand different flavours. They threaten to overwhelm you, overcome you, destroy you; and yet, they do nothing but inspire you and drive you to frenzied dancing. MoveDark Prey True Earth Falls Beautiful (Rotersand Remix) Eye of the Tiger Now the other two songs “Eye of […]

nTTx (Band Interview)

Today we speak to the power that is nTTx. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of nTTx? nTTx started out along time ago when I was still in high school. I managed to buy a couple of synths and a drum machine and started to make the kind of music I wanted to hear. I lived in a blue-collar town that was mostly metal and country music centric and I kept writing EBM and industrial music for myself never really promoted the electronic music I made. I was known more to be a drummer for post punk and rock bands. What’s your musical history? (Trained or Amateur)? I grew up in a musical, performing family. I first went on […]

Today we speak to Devin Doucette -guitarist/vocalist from Centuries of Decay: Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? Centuries of Decay formed in 2013 in Toronto, Ontario by Myself (Devin Doucette) Derrick Doucette  Rob McAllister. Derrick and I grew up in Charlottetown and were involved in the music scene there. I went to school for photography and digital imaging and decided to move up to Toronto in 2005.

All this time, Derrick was still playing […]
