DARK TRANQUILITY promote their Swedish Grammi nominated album “Atoma” on tour throughout North America this fall. Since their first full length release of Skydancer in 1993, the band has become recognized as one of the key pioneers in the Gothenburg death metal sound. Throughout these past 20+ years the sextet has become no stranger to some of the biggest stages in the world and continue to be a household name for pureblood headbangers.

WARBRINGER rage their way into Canada supporting their Napalm Records debut album “Woe to the Vanquish” released earlier this year. Matt Bacon at Metal Injection raved in his review of the album, stating that “Warbringer is, and always has been, a highly percussive band. The balls out assault is delicious and focuses on big choruses and staccato punches to the gut”. The group blew the doors off the LA thrash metal scene in 2004 and haven’t looked back since.

STRIKER is an Edmonton-based recording and performing heavy metal band that has grown immensely through their years in the industry. A classic mix of heavy metal, hard rock, and 80’s hair metal, their music features powerful, clean vocals, catchy choruses, vocal harmonies, and impressive guitar leads. Striker has toured across dozens of countries as headliners as well as support for major metal acts.

DEAD ASYLUM has become known for its throat-gripping riffs and rhythms and its energetic, balls-to-the-walls live performance. Dead Asylum “is one of those bands that’s hit the ground running” (Abort Magazine). On top of tour dates around the Western US and Canada, they've shared the stage with thrashers Toxic Holocaust, Warbringer and Exmortus; Soulfly and Soilwork; the legendary Anvil; and festival dates with Suffocation, Bison BC and Holy Grail.

Hardly satisfied with any of the new trends in the metal scene, we decided to take a step back and prove that old-school heavy metal is just as fucking heavy, loud, and shreds twice as hard as anything to date. Formed in late 2004, we set out to show the local metal scene that Warbringer was a force to be reckoned with, playing no-holds barred r... more info
