TENANT is an aggressive, progressive, and impressive heavy rock quartet based in Vancouver. Recorded at the famed Mushroom Studios, they launched their much-anticipated debut CD "All My Favourite Bands Are Breaking Up" with a sold out show at the Media Club, bringing their high energy live performances back to local fans. Every Tenant show is an opportunity to be amazed and entertained; their extremely heavy grooves and catchy melodies leave audiences humming and headbanging long after Tenant leaves the stage.

DREAMS OF TREASON - Raw intensity with amps turned to 11 and armed with the sole intention of rocking your brains out, Dreams of Treason's modern classic melodic hard rock delivers up-tempo fire and soul-wrenching darkness. As founding members of the Vancouver Band Alliance, Dreams of Treason have become regulars on local TV show A New Rock Reality, which chronicles the lives of several Vancouver-based bands.

CRY OF SILENCE is a Canadian band with ethnic and musical diversity that combines hard-hitting rock with the best '90s and '80s influences. Their songs are filled with aggressive yet beautiful vocals, and harmonies accompanied by metal-influenced guitar melodies. Hailing from Burnaby, the band's achievements include being one of the top winners in Supernova's Battle of the Bands and opening for popular artists such as Social Code and Jonny Hethrington from Art of Dying.

FINITE STATE MACHINES (formerly LTG) - A finite state machine is an abstract machine model with a primitive internal memory that is used to study and design systems that recognize and identify patterns. The idea of finite state machines is a powerful one with many applications in computer science but none in the arena of rock music... until now! Combining heartfelt singing, memorable melodies, insightful lyrics and an aggressive rock sound, Finite State Machines deliver the goods with style and vigour.
