Toronto Melodic Death Metal

In the iceclad realm of Canada, where the land, the sea and sky converge; four young men step forth from scarlet mists to propagate their scourge. As the sun begins to rise on 2016, VESPERIA have already met with international praise and repute by the primal incantation that is their vast and resplendent sound.

Winnipeg Death Metal

Thundering in the distance of the Canadian prairies from the depths of Winnipeg hail four-piece ENTITY generating blasphemous death metal!

Adam Kozak - Vocals/Guitars
Kyle Braun - Drums
Brown - Bass
Tyler Augusto - Guitars


Improvised Comedy Metal

85 Pound Poutine are the pioneers of improvised comedy metal, being the first band in the world to completely make up all of their materials on the spot and incorporating improv comedy into the lyrics and content of their live shows. The band was formed in 2007 in Sudbury, Ontario originally as a project to fill opening spots at local shows, eventually recording improvised materials as EP's and albums which were never officially released.
