Burning the Day
METAL from Toronto Ontario
WACKEN Metal Battle TORONTO Winners, 2014
Burning The Day are a Canadian metal band from Toronto, Ontario. Over the last 8 years BTD have undergone a few line up changes for the better, and in 2011 the band became stronger than ever with the addition of their unrivaled lead vocalist, Cesar Silva. The rest of BTD currently consists of rhythm guitarist Matt Metcalfe, drummer Steve "The Animal" Mitchell, lead guitarist Maxim Shelkov, and bassist Dmitri Skribans. Since the bands birth in 2005, Burning The Day have been developing and crafting their extreme sound and releasing four studio albums; In Fall She Sleeps (2006), Dawn Of Thorns (2007), Blacklisted (2009), and most recently, Metamorphosis (2013). With a handful of extensive tours across North America, they've gained a loyal following of fans that now make up the core of their expanding fan base. This has enabled the band to sell out legendary venues in their home town, performing for over a thousand screaming fans. In 2012, BTD tore up Indie Week Canada where they came out on top above 250 competing bands. This major win propelled them towards headlining shows in Indie Week Ireland 2013, followed by a two month UK tour supported by Self Made Records, Nottingham, England. Over the years, the band has shared their stages with many talented metal acts including: Bring Me The Horizon, Obey The Brave, Soilwork, Emmure, The Black Dahlia Murder, Bury Your Dead, 3 Inches Of Blood, Beneath The Massacre, Goatwhore, Ion Dissonance, Threat signal and many more. Burning The Day are making waves in the metal scene. Performing live shows, planning another European tour and writing new music are just a couple of things that will be keeping these guys busy for 2014.
