Don't miss the launch party for Celestial Ruin's debut album "The Awakening", recorded with Platinum Award winning producer Kevin Hamilton and former Sarah McLachlan bassist Jeff Sawatzky & Mike "Dikk" Dagenais (Celestial Ruin's bass player), joined tonight by special guests Kush, Iron Kingdom & Skinny Millionaire!

CELESTIAL RUIN - Styled after European symphonic metal but executed with a decidedly North American flavor, Celestial Ruin's sound combines heavy rock riffs and rhythms with rich symphonic textures, catchy melodies and lyrical themes drawn from fantasy and horror. Based out of Vancouver, and featuring the stellar vocals of frontwoman Larissa Dawn, Celestial Ruin is poised to take North America by storm with their upcoming debut release “The Awakening”.

KUSH - Known for their ripping riffs, awesome harmonics, drop the beat chops and full out energy, Kush brings a stellar approach to a melodic blues & rock style. One of Vancouver's premier hard rock bands, these boys crank it up by bringing an old school metal feel with a touch of punk to the mix, augmented by hard hitting drums and steady rhythmic grooves that are sure to astonish you! http:/

IRON KINGDOM brings back the classic sounds of traditional heavy metal with electrifying stage presence and intricate musical melodies. Chris Osterman brings star power and is an exhilarating guitarist with a wide vocal range that leaves audiences wanting more. His classically-trained sister Amanda lays down the refined beat that sets the dynamic foundation for the group and bassist Leighton Holmes brings poetically dark lyrics and classic finger-style playing while Kenny Kroecher delivers the excitement of dual lead guitars and intricate guitar rhythms.

SKINNY MILLIONAIRE - Once upon a time there was a group of people who pushed their way out of their respective wombs with varying degrees of success. Their collective interests include clumps of things (oats, teeth, etc), lightning, spice, cereal, and hitting strange things with mundane objects to make unexpected sounds. Love them or hate them... but please shower them with provocative gestures, undergarments and liquor bottles.
