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 […]

nTTx (Band Interview)

Empire State Human (Band Interview)

Today we speak to Empire State Human. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of Empire State Human? ESH formed in Dublin, Ireland in 1999. With the sole purpose of creating a retro, electro analogue pop sound, with a touch of Sci-Fi, Futurism and electronic pop. I always felt this was going to be a project for the long run, with an appetite for many, many releases. At least one a year. In 2002, upon the advice of the 80s band Alphaville Manager we sent demos to North America, as the Electroclash movement had begun and there was a real taste and interest in synth bands. The timing was perfect and we were snapped up by Ninthwave Records, who at […]

Ninjaspy (Band Interview)

 

 Today we speak to Joel from Ninjaspy. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? We have been playing together since 1999 when we were teenagers. We played all kinds of different styles back then, figuring out what we liked. Turns out we liked a lot of things. So we spent our creative energy on mixing genres together. We became Ninjaspy in 2006 and put out an album, Pi Nature, that brought ska, reggae and metalcore together. Since then it has been pretty much all touring in Canada and Japan with a short EP release in there, No Kata. A few years ago we whipped up a new batch of song soup and got the ball rolling to make Spüken, which we just released […]

Upright Man (Band Interview)

Today we chat to the members of Upright Man. What’s the history of Upright Man? Max: Their story began several millennia ago. The Upright Man, or Homo Erectus, was a species of human that lived during the Pleistocene Epoch from about 1.6 million years ago to 250,000 years ago. Now extinct, Homo Erectus was the first species of humans to master fire, and its remains have been found in Africa, Europe, and Asia. It is widely thought to be the direct ancestor of modern humans.

Social Arsonist (Band Interview)

Today we chat to Social Arsonist. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? SOCIAL ARSONIST is the cause of bassist Dario Zuniga and guitarist Manuel Morgado who started the band in 2009.

Deity (Band Interview)

Today we speak to the lads from Deity. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? Danny and I started jamming in high school just doing covers for fun. We then quickly got into writing original tunes. Starting as a three piece (just guitars), our goal was to blend different styles of metal with layers and harmonies. Our only problem was finding dedicated members, especially drummers and bassists. Through wise advise given to us by Keith of Rotting (Can), Danny then started playing drums. After a few years of struggling to find other members, the band decided to put the band on hold. Danny and I went on to do other projects in the local scene. We then […]

ERA 9 (Band Interview)

Today we chat to ERA 9. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? The band has been together for 6 years, but we found our sound in 2016. Jona, Marco and Joe met in high school, all sharing the same passion for music, and that progressed to the start of a band, and lead us to where we are today. Lalla was in a “rival” band from our city, so we all knew of each other in the MTL music scene. Joe and Jona had actually seen Laurie perform with her old band years before she joined Era 9, through mutual friends. We all had a passion for music since we were kids, and that brought us […]
