Sudbury Heavy Metal/Hard Rock

The Wring is a 4-piece band from Northern Ontario, Canada. Not so far north that dogsleds or polar bears are ubiquitous, but far enough north that shovelling snow is a more frequent event than pretty much anything else. Or so it seems.

Our music would not be possible without references. So we thank Rush for making everything ok back in 1976. We thank Metallica for firing Dave Mustaine; a world without Megadeth would have been unimaginably desolate. We thank Mikael Akerfeldt for deciding that it is entirely proper to mix unlikely intervals and articulation with traditional ‘metal’. We thank the 80’s for Dan. We thank Brann, Troy, Bill & Brent for the new millennium.

There are so many more.

Listen to our music.

Sudbury Alternative Rock

Save The Strange is what some might call the latest "Supergroup" to form in Sudbury, Ontario. Formed in April of 2015, the band features members from many classic and memorable Sudbury bands including Sushi, Weatherly, Backroads, Hyland Drive, Konflit Dramatik, Breaking The Breakdown, Sex & Summer and Sulfur City. Although the band started in 2015, they did not start playing live shows until 2017 after spending some time to craft their music to what they envisioned it to be.

Sudbury Acoustic Rock

Bubbling up out of the slag of the Nickel City, Aggressive Acoustic has gradually been smelted into a highly corrosive hodge podge of madness, musical instruments, and the united goal of making ear drums bleed with instruments traditionally perceived as pleasant to the ear. Initially the brain child of Brian Cattapan, Aggressive Acoustic started as a one man band of big voice and bassy acoustic guitar sounds. Deciding that he needed some drums in the mix, Brian performed an ancient and eldritch ritual to summon the Thunder Goddess, Angie McBride to provide rhythm to what was to become Aggressive Acoustic. In the process of summoning Angie, the earth let loose a massive high pitched fart that sounded pleasing to Brian's ears. Almost in tune with what he was playing.


Indie/Acoustic Folk

HK, or otherwise known as "Josh" is a tall white kid, hoping you feel the emotion in his words, they come from the heart. Please sing along to the number one hit on the Bandcamp "Netflix & Chill".
