Vesperia, Catharcyst, Buried Out Back live at The Asylum

Sunday June 5th 2016 - Live in Sudbury

VESPERIA (Searing Canadian Goodness!!)
Vesperia loves Sudbury, and to prove it they are blessing the stage once again on "The Tempests Over Ontario" headlining tour. If you have yet to witness the relentless power of Vesperia's music, this is your chance to catch them live in action. Every member of the band is as skilled as they come and Vesperia are quickly becoming a household name, having won the 2015 Wacken Metal Battle as world finalists! We had to pick up some jaws from the floor when they played here last with Kalmah, and this time around they are headlining so expect a set of epic proportions!

CATHARCYST (Sudbury Metal Pioneers)
Since the late 90s, Catharcyst has been shredding and going strong, evolving from the original name of State of Aggression to the beast that it is today! Catharcyst has shared the stage with some great and legendary bands in their musical career and are a Sudbury Metal staple, having gained a fan base and supporters who have never stopped banging their heads and throwing up their horns at their live shows. Bringing a melodic and dark element to thier thrash/death metal/black metal hybrid sound, including clean vocal parts Catharcyst keeps getting better and better and their performances are something not to miss first hand.

BURIED OUT BACK (North Bay Melodic Death Metal)
Featuring members of prominent North Bay bands such as Empyrean Plague and Vanquished, Buried Out Back is a perfect blend of metal, and have strong influences from bands such as Amon Amarth, Black Dahlia Murder and several elements of various heavy genres. Buried Out Back's debut album "Songs In The Key of Murder" is available for free at the bands bandcamp page. We are stoked to have Buried Out Back hit the stage at The Asylum!

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.
