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. Unable to locate the perfect vocalist in Chile, they found Canadian singer Cayle Charlton and worked with him for years via the internet, honing their material before taking the ultimate step of relocating to Canada. Inspired by Lamb of God, Pantera, Sepultura, Slayer, and Machine Head, Zuniga describes the sound of SOCIAL ARSONIST as ‘aggressive, fast, intense, catchy and disruptive.” Over the years the world has been able to hear the fruits of their labour with the release of their 2014 EP ‘De-Evolution of Thy […]

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 […]

Rapheumet’s Well (Band Interview)

Today we speak to Joshua from Rapheumet’s Well. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? Our history is a rather lengthy and complex one but what has amalgamated to the present line up has been a evolution in the mission that is currently Rapheumets Well.  Rapheumets Well started with Joshua Ward, Ralph Barnette (R.I.P), and Jonathan Finney and eventually Aaron Rogers.  As life has it, people change and our personal mission changes.

What’s your musical history? (Trained or Amateur)? We have an assortment of […]

Cope (Band Interview)

Today we chat to Mickey, the drummer -and second half- of Cope. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? Tyson and I have played together in a few different bands over the last 8 years. A two-piece was something we always talked about but it finally came to be during a period of downtime from our other projects. It was nice because we play different roles in other bands and there is often a principal songwriter in those situations, but this is our first full on collaboration. It also brings us back to our main instruments, Tyson on guitar and me playing drums. What’s your musical history? (Trained or Amateur)? Tyson is a self-taught musician, playing guitar […]

Cydemind (Band Interview)

Today we speak to Cydemind. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band? We formed in 2011 for what should have been a one-time show and then disband. We played some Dream Theater and David Garrett at a music contest. The experience was so much fun we decided to go on and write our own music. At that time there was just Olivier, Dage and former bassist Elie. We quickly had Kev and Cam on board and we starting writing. It was shitty at first but as the years passed experience sunk in and our music refined itself. We feel that with Erosion we reached a great musical level and from that point we can only go higher.

Today we speak to Alex Citrone from Sigil. Let’s start with this: What’s the history of your band?
