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.
