The Pit of Love Valentines Show With Archelon, Crone Of War, Behind These Eyes

Melodic-thrash metal turtle ninjas, Archelon, are playing their first scheduled show since the release of their debut album, "Bound by Bloodlines"

Catch prog-metal MASTERS, Crone of War, fully torqued off the release of their new single, "Dogma" - and hear other tracks off their upcoming debut album, "Beneath Grey Skies"

And we're happy to announce our boys in Behind These Eyes will be kicking the show off with some deliciously heavy jams for you and your special someone. Ladies in the splash zone; you will get wet.

At the last benefit show held at The Asylum, the Sudbury metal community raised over $200 for a local vet clinic... and I know this time we can do even more! $5 + a non-perishable food item donation for the Sudbury Food Bank, or $10 without a donation, gets you into the show this Valentines Day. And prepare for a few sexy surprises up on stage!

Sudbury Metal

From the frozen depths and smoke-filled skies of Sudbury comes ARCHELON. Grab our debut album, "Bound by Bloodlines".

Sudbury Metal

Joe and Craig were introduced by a fellow friend and guitar player named Gary Desormeaux, who also co-wrote 4 of the 10 tracks on "Beneath Grey Skies". At this point the band went through 2 name changes, Having an opportunity to open for Anvil, they quickly named themselves Death Ryder. After some thought, they later became Kronawar. Three of these songs are massively reworked versions of Gary's and Craig's former band "Misfire" from the 2006-2008 era. Joe, Gary and Craig tried many drummers and eventually Joe met Dylan while shopping for Auto Parts. Dylan auditioned and was an instant match. This line up only played one show together. Gary eventually left the band and focused on his family and shortly thereafter, Dylan pointed out the similarities between Kronawar and another band name...

Sudbury Deathcore

Behind These Eyes is a deathcore/death metal/beatdown band from Sudbury Ontario. The band has shared the stage with many of Canada's top deathcore and death metal bands such as Angelmaker, Falsifier, Killitorous, Gorod, Aegaeon and many more. The band is currently working on their first full length album.
