SPRËADEAGLE - With their three guitar attack and brutal onslaught of '70s-inspired hard rock, these five visionaries who hail from Mission, B.C., have graced the stage with the likes of The Misfits, Speedealer, Bad Wizard, The Cherry Valence and Nashville Pussy. Their lethal combination of rock prowess slays crowds with both originals & covers.Taking equal parts of the brainless thud of AC/DC, the reckless abandon of the dwarves, the sonic onslaught that is Mötorhead, and eagerly blending it with their own unique musical nuances, they have created the aural revelation known as "SprëadEagle".

BLACK BETTY is a musical entity consisting of Jonas Fairley and Ana Serena. Founded by mutual love for music and the need to express, explore and exploit our creativity, BB is committed to provide the most entertaining, alternative heavy music to the world.


MONGOOSE - 4 hard working lads from East Van whose punk attitude and sonic assault of contagious and raucous garage punk rock has had them hailed as "the best live band in Vancouver!" (Nerve Magazine) and "In-freakin-sane Hives inspired alt-metal!" (Exclaim!). With their ability to write catchy songs, Mongoose has licenced songs to TV, snowboarding and mountain bike videos and movies, played over 180 shows, shared stages with Tricky Woo, Hedley, C'mon, Los Furios, Billy and the Lost Boys, Faber and many more, while racking up over 84,782 km since late 2003 in a minivan called the EGG!

CROWN THE WOLF - Described by one of their fans as watching powerful stomping trees on a day with no wind, this stoner-rock-metal band rips up the stage with an intense, tight sound pulled together by Geoff on drums, Kyle on guitar, Nick on guitar/vox & Sara on bass. Influenced by some of the best dark-hued stoner hard rock & metal bands such as Kyuss, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Motorhead, Metallica, Tool, C'mon, Fu Manchu, C.O.C., Soundgarden, Nirvana, Danzig & many more, the band describes their charged dark metal sound as aural sex.

SpreadEagle (SLAUGTERING THE UNIVERSE)

When you think of the Vancouver BC based SPREADEAGLE you think of one of the loudest bands to grace us with their head-banging, rock n roll presence in North America by far. The band was formed in early 2000 when brothers and guitarists extraordinaire Donnie James Rio (Chris Dyck) and Mattias Stabbs (Matt Dyck) decided it was time to play rad music... more info
