MARES OF THRACE of Calgary, Alberta, produce a full, complex, and original sound with just two broads and two instruments. Clearly seen in their style are influences of sludge metal Isis, and 90’s alternative hardcore Jesus Lizard. With their low-toned guitar and permeating fills, paired with a fusion of soft and growling vocals, Mares of Thrace exude layers of experimental thought. Having just toured North America, the girls bring it back to Van to throw us a brutal show that’s also easy on the eyes.

ANION mix up tempos and genres to produce a heavy hardcore mash-up made for crushing brains. They are signed to Vancouver’s Apocalypse Sunrise Records, and have played with notable hardcore Van bands like IOP and Golers. Having just rocked a Canadian tour in the fall, Anion return home to revive us with their pulsating riffs reminiscent of the 90’s hardcore sound. Describing themselves as a “negatively charged band”, they pull together an intense act with waves of noise coming from all directions.

WEIRDING is a dark-roast blend of groovy down-tempo hardcore with psychedelic tendencies. They present the most tasteful (and tasty) sludge anyone has seen in a while. With progressions that actually go somewhere, creative beats, and a balance between heaviness and ambience of the guitar lines, Weirding is not a band to miss!

WITCHDR has spawned very recently out of Vancouver, featuring members of Burning Ghats and Spirals. This newborn presents an imaginative new scramble of hardcore, thrash and grind, guaranteed to melt faces. Come check out their very first show!

No scene points, no genre devotion - just a desire to create devastatingly heavy and ultimately ugly music. Riff driven and intense, the music stands apart with an underlying foundation of ugly and intense hardco... more info
