Formed in Oshawa, ON, these guys have been around since 2008 and this is their fourth EP (no album as of yet), and has been self-released. I don’t really know anything about their history, but I do find it more than a little strange that a band like this haven’t been snapped up yet. There are some very interesting mathcore elements going on here, and I would have thought that fans of Protest The Hero would be all over this. Now, I like PTH (and finally saw them live last year, hooray!), and can say that if these guys had an album out I would be very interested in hearing it indeed.
They state that their influences are Gojira, Korn, Iron Maiden, Dethlok and Antonio Vivaldi, while the PR company says that their sound is best described as “energetic, unorthodox, progressive, spirited, and memorable”. They have also managed to get local girl Lindsay Schoolcraft (Cradle of Filth) to play and sing on one of the six songs, so possibly that will assist in them getting some more publicity. If you are interested in bands such as Veil of Maya, Between The Buried And Me, Protest The Hero then you really ought to seek these guys out. If they can produce an EP of this quality when they are unsigned just what are they going to be doing then they have a label behind them?
