    About: Kill Matilda just can’t sit still. But since they’re on an ass-kicking mission to find revenge, who can really blame them?

    Touring and moving around their native country relentlessly, Kill Matilda has called B.C., Quebec and Ontario home over the years, making it exceptionally clear that they mean business. As the journey to kill Matilda continues, the title of the band’s first full-length album says it all: I Want Revenge.

    Charged with the task of clearing the nation of a spreading zombie epidemic after a life or death encounter one fateful night, Kill Matilda is rising to the challenge of zombie management. Specially trained to combat these unruly creatures, Kill Matilda is armed with two incomparable, indestructible, advantageous tools: their bone-crushing music and front woman Dusty Exner’s famous cookies.

    Showcasing the energy, power and adrenaline-soaked insanity Kill Matilda is famous for, I Want Revenge was recorded at Vancouver’s Nimbus Studios after the band’s self-titled DIY EP won over Garth Richardson and the students of Nimbus. Their knowledge of KM’s top-secret mission may or may not also have been a deciding factor.

    The result? An album that was built on their preceding EP’s strengths and squashes its weaknesses. “Being able to have someone as committed and talented as Wes Kennedy to trust with bringing our sound to another level really shines through on this record,” comments bassist Mykel Exner. “We knew what sound we wanted to hear and Wes had no issues taking all the extra steps to bring it to life.”

    For anyone who chooses to tempt fate and not pick up I Want Revenge, or anyone who opts to not support KM’s zombiecide mission, you’ve been warned – Kill Matilda may be coming for you next.

     - 30 -

    "With their debut LP, Kill Matilda kicks zombie ass and takes no prisoners. Punk ‘n’ roll pulses through their veins like a narcotic substance, and frontwoman Dusty Exner is screaming like it’s the only thing keeping her alive. It’s a performance that makes her the center of attention for the whole record. The band bangs out solid rock riffs, every once in a while tapping into southern-fried hardcore grooves...I Want Revenge is a solid record from a promising new band." - The Link (Concordia University Press - Montreal)

    "These guys and girl are one of the best unsigned bands I have ever seen live. Their raw performance filled the room with energy as they bashed on their instruments while vocalist Dusty Exner shouted and sang her lungs out." - PureGrainAudio.com (Live Review)

    "If you're into Hole, Die Mannequin or Bif Naked, you need to take a listen to Vancouver's Kill Matilda." - AlanCross.ca

    “It’s always a pleasure to hear women rock out. Kill Matilda provided the perfect adrenaline rush…They had boundless energy, plenty of high volume power chords and shouted vocals….Joan Jett on steroids.” - LA Beat

    "More exciting and entertaining than any of the Resident Evil films, I Want Revenge will kick your ass with the rage of ‘Zombie Apocalypse,’ the vengeance-inciting title track (‘I Want Revenge’), the police van burning ‘Law Abiding Citizen,’ and the machine-gun riffage of ‘PBJ.’  I Want Revenge really is like the musical version of Left 4 Dead, and it’ll leave you with hours of enjoyment and bloodshed (probably from banging your head into the wall after a failed one-man-moshpit in your bedroom)." - MusicReview.co.za

    "First thing you have to know about Kill Matilda is they are going to rock the sh*t out of your skull. Either live or on I Want Revenge get ready for your head to explode with Heavy Riffs and Dusty’s ear piercing screams. But never overdoing the screams Dusty keeps the decibels in check. I got lucky and saw Kill Matilda before I got to listen to I Want Revenge and their live show just blew me away by how in your face their music is. With Harding pounding Guitar Riffs and the pounding volume to match each venue they play shakes the buildings rafters and leaves cracks in the foundations. This album is only a touch of what you can expect live, but in no way am I harping on the album I just have to get the point across of you need to see this band live." - Kingston Music Reviews

    “This is definitely a band to keep an eye on.” - Abort Mag

    "One of B.C.'s big-city buzz bands" - Prince George Citizen

    “A highly energetic show …they play hard and Dusty wails on vocals while engaging the audience with ease.” - Yell Magazine!

    "I stood stoked and wanting more" - Renegade Rock Review

    "They're loud, crazy and out of fucking CONTROL!" - Ninth Circle Radio

    “Kill Matilda’s sound can and will appeal to wider audiences.” - WestCoastWeasel.com

    About: FINAL TRIGGER’s story begins on ‘The Block’, nestled deep in Toronto’s urban jungle. Crime and poverty stricken, amongst a haven of thugs and deadbeats, four musically talented characters cross paths.

    The spark of a lighter in a dark alley, smoking joints over the talk of escape and rebellion. A dream of a better life, where money/weed/bitches are a plenty. Free-styling with homies, rolling dirty, and dropping out of school to jam and pursue music. Most of all: a pact that would bind each member to a common cause, and entwine their fates forever. These are the fundamentals on which Final Trigger was born, and would lead it to become what it is today.

    The Four Horsemen:

    Lead Vocalist/Guitarist J-Roc provides the guitar-driven structures and shredding guitar solos with a tone reminiscent of Dimebag Darrell and Dave Mustaine. All while ripping vocal screams that would rival a Frankenstein of Lamb Of God, Snot and Hed PE.

    Bass-man/Vocalist Fazio brings an equally heavy but funky vibe. He plays with a rock-solid presence and slap-bass style, with influences of Cliff Burton and Marcus Miller combined. Not to mention the ability to free-style vocally as if James Brown joined the Wu Tang Clan.

    DJ/Vocalist Profit brings the smooth hip-hop vibe to the music, spitting savvy rhymes with old-school swagger, and tasteful keys and scratches.

    Drummer extraordinaire JJ Tartaglia contributes the backbone beats and rhythms with a metal/funk style to get the groove just right. Blazing double kicks, sky-high cymbals, and a visual style unlike you’ve ever seen.

    These players are the magical combination that makes Final Trigger an all-star line-up, and 2nd to none. The band believes hard in their music, and is proud to live their lyrics and image.

  • UNTIL DAWN Offer Free Download 'This Fallen Fortress' From Upcoming Album 'Horizon' On PureGrainAudio.com

    (L-R) – Steve White – Guitar, Darren Ehler – Bass, Adam Macleod – Vocals, Luke Worrell – Drums, Deke Worrell – Guitar (Photo Credit = Barrett Klesko – FadeBlack Studios United)

         Until Dawn's intense energy, intoxicating guitar riffs along with their lively stage shows has shown that their location in the remote northern depths of Fort McMurray, Alberta will not slow them down as they unleash their latest album 'Horizon' on Tuesday, August 6th to follow up their 2011 self titled breakthrough.

    Before the album's release, the band is now offering to fans the first single 'This Fallen Fortress' as a free download on PureGrainAudio.com here.

    Vocalist Adam Macleod comments:

    "We started working on Horizon two years ago, and the concept came together fast. As a touring band, we are always staring into the horizon geared towards the next show. That’s what we are trying to convey with our next record. We spent an immense amount of time writing and doing pre-production to ensure we lived up to our own expectations and our fans. We believe this is the best representation of what Until Dawn is right now. We are extremely proud and excited to get this record to our fans, to make new ones and hit the road to play the new songs live.

    Our single 'This Fallen Fortress' started as a song about being from Fort McMurray and the struggles we face as a band secluded so far north. But quickly turn into being about gaining strength through out any obstacle you are faced with. We as a band believe you can find strength and perseverance in any situation, and turn it into a positive. Let this dawn awaken."

    Mixing the sound of modern metal and classic rock, brothers Luke and Deke Worrell, with Adam MacLeod and Steve White have created a thirteen track exploder that appeals to both young and old alike.

    1. Roamers And Lurkers

    8. Time Tested Fortune
    9. The Trial
    10. Polar Parallels
    11. Horizon
    12. WM3
    13. Richard

    About: Until Dawn released their self titled debut in 2011 to great success having their hit single “Table and The Plastic” get steady rotation on local Rock 97.9FM.

    “‘Tides of War’ offers music that is well done and fueled with the propensity of delivering solid melodic death/thrash.” – Blistering.com

    “Fans of modern thrash, who like it furious, biting and yet melodic check Chariots of The Gods.” – Lords of Metal

    “There’s a lot on ‘Tides of War’ to pique the interest of either thrash or melodic death metal fans, and the non-stop galloping guitar sound is an impressive display of what the underground can achieve.” – MetalUnderground.com

    “It is heavy, brutal and energetic while also incorporating a fair amount of melody to boot!…This is an album that is definitely going to raise the bar in the extreme music scene for the remainder of the year. Pick this one up; you won’t regret it!” – PureGrainAudio.com

    “CHARIOTS OF THE GODS are showing plenty of promise to be able to be one of Canada’s next big things out there” – Metal Observer

    “An incredibly professional production is at hand: drums are clear; vocals are on the perfect level with the instruments; even the soft and quiet moments are balanced just right so as to create bits of atmosphere against the heaviness. There is a pure love of metal evident in this debut and the production lets all the power, aggression, and passion through to the listener…the band confidently establishes their intention: a charge of solid and unyielding melodeath garnished with impeccable interludes, solos, and leads.” – MetalStorm

    “CHARIOTS OF THE GODS, with their first full-length release ”Tides Of War”,is sure to be the new buzz of the underground scene…Overall, the album is an eclectic, vibrant, and colorful release that really keeps listeners head banging all the way and appreciating the good work the band has put in. The production is clearly strong, coming from the hands of Glen Robinsonwho has worked with Metal legends such as ANNIHILATOR and QUEENSRYCHE…The band does its best, and boy is it good, to church out infectious hook after hook, coupled with blistering melodies and kickass solos backed by Jobin’s great vocals. Each band member shines in this album and their dedication and devotion to their music is clear from the start…The entire album is structured in a genius way—these guys are clearly gifted lads.” – Metal-Temple

    “Splendid stuff from a young Canadian troupe that would appear to have all the tricks… I love their coruscating mix of Maidenesque harmonies (have a listen to the awesome Blind Assassin and tell me you ain’t impressed)” – MetalAsFuck

    “”Tides of War” is an album that rivals classics by acts such as God Forbid, Shadows Fall, and Killswitch Engage in excellence and pays respectful homage to acts like In Flames, Arch Enemy, At The Gates, and Dark Tranquility. For my money, this debut album deserves the status as a melodeath-type of metal classic. 5/5″ – MetalMusicArchives

    “The best thing about this band, in my view, is the powerful melodic style they bring to each song. The guitarists are especially strong on several tracks, including “Tides of War,” “Revillusion (1905),” and “Unbound.” I loved the instrumental track “Snow Falls on the White River (1914),” yet another piece of evidence that these guys have a keen sense of melody, at times, one that even approaches beauty. Mathiew St-Amour and Dimitri Gervais play their guitars with grace and precision and sound especially great on their harmonized parts. These guys have a bright future as twin guitar leads and I hope they’ll take advantage of what they can do together. Readers who like their guitars to come in pairs will love this album.” – SeaofTranquility

    ides of War” is an album that rivals classics by acts such as God Forbid, Shadows Fall, and Killswitch Engage in excellence and pays respectful homage to acts like In Flames, Arch Enemy, At The Gates, and Dark Tranquility. For my money, this debut album deserves the status as a melodeath-type of metal classic. 5/5″ – MetalMusicArchives

    “COTG entice the listener with infectious hooks, associated melodies and some blistering solos out of the guitar work. If that is not justice enough for you to buy this, then listen to the intensity of Renaud Jobin’s vocals. This is a release that requires you to strap your balls down (if you have them of course!) when the volume is cranked up…They have a fantastic musical ability and a gift of song structure that exhumes listeners emotions that includes anger and conversely serenity and the need to throw the devil horns without too much though will therefore result. ‘Tides of War’ promotes Chariots of the Gods as real contenders in their field of metal, their field of glory and the rewards are presented for everyone on these exceptional fourteen tracks defining a generation of musically gifted individuals who do not rely purely on breakdowns to get their point across, it sounds effortless. Horn’s raised high gents! 4/5″ – Brutalism.com

    “Overture is quite sweet sounding and feels like a film score. Nothing compared to the monster that is waiting to be unleashed. Ferocious riffs and classic metal vocals. Drums blasting out the speed and blasts and the guitars giving it a chunky edge whilst maintains some harmony. Hatebreed hardcore edge but throws in the melody. Definitely an innovative sound amongst a sea of similar sounds. Chariots of the Gods definitely seem to offer something that little bit different. Taking the generic metal sound and throwing in delicious guitar solos with a conflicting vocal. Upbeat without being cheesy.” – Culutre Bomb Mag

    “Hands down, CHARIOTS OF THE GODS have worked hard and have improved their songwriting that shines in “Tides Of War” in every aspect. Don’t be fooled by the melodic Death Metal tag and consider the Canadians just another IN FLAMES wannabe because there is more than just catchy riffs and growling vocals. And don’t forget that CHARIOTS OF THE GODS come from Canada that is a most reliable source for high quality Metal. 8/10″ – MetalKaoz.com
