  • FATALITY Posts New Tour Diary From USA 'Towards Disastour'

    FATALITY Posts New Tour Diary From USA 'Towards Disastour'
    New Dates Added; New Album Out Psychonaut'; Music Video 'Thoughts Collide'

        Fatality vocalist / guitarist Spencer Le Von has posted his first diary entry on the band's current 'Towards Disastour' at the following location here.

    Smarter, stronger and musically tighter than ever, Canadian thrash party monsters Fatality unleashed their sophomore album 'Psychonaut' last week on June 28th and are currently on their USA 'Towards Disastour'.

    Vocalist / guitarist Spencer Le Von comments:

    "Psychonaut, this complex riff addled collection is the result of much blood, sweat and endless passion. Eight tracks of blistering progressive thrash metal, each one of them filled with enough ear candy to satisfy your heavy metal sweet tooth. So this weekend, fire up that BBQ, get your rye and coke on ice and let your whole street hear it." 

    'Psychonaut' is available on iTunesBandcampBig Cartel.

    A darker and more mature effort, Psychonaut brings forth Fatality's trademark energy and commitment to drunken mayhem. Tracks like 'Thoughts Collide' and 'Before The Collapse' delve deep into the sodden minds of their creators, bubbling with the strange alchemy of pop culture. Psychonaut is an exploration of the inner landscape of the mind, where addled thoughts and horror-polluted dreams are held up to musical scrutiny. Monstrous, ambitious, and sardonically funny as ever, Fatality are taking their unique sound and boundless energy to the next level. 

    First two singles from the album:

    4. Before the Collapse - 5:29

    Total: 46:25

    To fund their new album, upcoming tour and music video FATALITY launched a crowd funding platform via Indiegogo.com, which was linked to http://fatality.ca. They've successfully received over $5,000 in fan support during the campaign for the album through this new initiative.

    About: Toronto, Canada’s high-energy, modern thrash monsters Fatality have been cranking out wise-cracking, beer-drenched nightmares together since 2003. Known for their wild, riotous live performances and their peerless work ethic, they have been independently booking and promoting their own shows, creating great merch, touring North America, and making some great tunes along the way. Few bands embody the DIY spirit as fully as Fatality consistently do, and no other bands have as much fun working their asses off.

    Fatality’s debut effort, Beers From The Grave, was an irreverent, horror-themed album that eschewed seriousness in favour of hard living and good times. Decibel Magazine quipped that, on Beers From The Grave, “solos fly with reckless abandon, the bass is audible and practically so are the beers being cracked open. These guys must have awesome parties.” Hellbound.ca stated that Fatality are “a bundle of crass, explosive, obnoxiously positive energy spewing beer and shrapnel.” Part homage to classic zombie apocalypse horror and part retro-thrash ruckus, Beers From The Grave was an exciting, riotously messy debut.

    After supporting Beers From The Grave with East coast Canadian tours, and being invited to share the stage with the likes of Exodus, Municipal Waste, Holy Grail and Razor, the thrash rockers went back to the studio and emerged with still more new material. Three rough-and-tumble, irresistibly catchy singles — “T.F.E.S.”, “Uppercut” and “Hammerfist” — were bundled together as a free EP. While most bands would have simply released a free record and called it a day, Fatality supported their singles with North American tours, winning hearts, destroying livers and splitting eardrums along the way. After those adventures, Fatality went into a period of hiatus. They emerged from this creative cocoon and re-instated their original drummer, Mason LeVon (brother to guitarist and vocalist Spencer LeVon, who replaced longtime friend and skinsman Andrew Suarez), and new musical vision. In early 2012, the band began writing a brand-new full-length, 'Psychonaut', unquestionably their most ambitious project to date.

  • BornBroken Announce New Vocalist Matt Bailie (ex-The Catalyst); Part Ways With Singer Jesus Salazar

    'Due to personal reasons, BornBroken and Singer Jesus Anzola Salazar have parted ways, Still the Broken rise...'

    Wedding

    From L-R: Simon Savard – Guitar | Jesus Salazar – Vocals | Tommy Vaillancourt – Bass |  Mike Decker – Guitar | Jonathan Ménard – Drums

       Unleashing their debut album 'The Healing Powers of Hate' earlier this month, Montreal, QC's BornBroken announce the departure of vocalist Jesus Salazar whom will be replaced by vocalist Matt Bailie (ex-The Catalyst).

    Guitarist Mike Decker comments:

    "We had come to a pass in the road; Jesus had some tough life decisions, which came down to no longer being able to sing for BornBroken. We have had 2 great years with Jesus and recorded a stellar debut CD. We wish him the best in his future projects and health. Thanks for everything! To all our fans, this bump in the road came with a glimmer of hope at the end. BornBroken was able to quickly fill the empty spot in the lineup and is happy to announce -The Catalyst's ex-frontman "Matt Bailie" as the new singer. We will debut our live show with Matt on July 12th in Montreal at Foufounes Electriques supporting The Agonist."

    Matt Bailie also comments:

    "I would like to thank Mike, Simon, Tommy & Joe for the opportunity to once again destroy and dominate on stage. BornBroken has big things planned for the not so distant future and I am glad to be a part of it. This is a new chapter for me musically and I personally cannot wait to unleash our music upon the masses, "Hear our cries...the Broken shall rise."

    BornBroken w/ The Agonist on July 12th at Foufounes Electriques.

       The groove metallers have been gaining momentum since releasing their debut as it was fan voted Album of The Week (June 10th) on Revolver Magazine, along with debuting #8 on Canadian College Loud Charts, and them being named one of the best unsigned Heavy Metal Bands for June by Drago's Dungeon on About.com – Heavy Metal. They also received great admiration from Yell Magazine! quoting 'This is a debut metal album of epic proportions. If it’s not the Canadian metal album of the year, it’s certainly in the running for Canadian debut metal album.' along with TheFrontRowReport quoting 'BornBroken may be the best metal band you probably haven’t heard of. Those who love hard, heavy, angry metal are in for a treat and may find a new favorite in BornBroken.'.

    The album is now streaming at the following link: http://soundcloud.com/bornbrokenmusic/sets/thehealingpowersofhate 

    Their heavy hitting single ‘Control’ is also available for FREE download at the following links below.

    Bandcamp - http://bornbroken.bandcamp.com/track/control

    Soundcloud - https://soundcloud.com/bornbrokenmusic/control

    BornBroken was formed with one simple mission in mind: Help the masses find a voice, a face, an “X” that marks the spot through the sounds of beating skins, metal strings and broken chords.

    After months of writing and hours spent in the studio, BornBroken managed to take every emotion they felt, put it to music, build off of past battle scars and create a record where listeners will feel they are part of the storyline. 

    On their debut album, The Healing Powers of HateBornBroken play out not only what life has given them but also what they want to give back: truth, integrity, perseverance, loyalty and faith in humanity’s struggle for equality.

    Interview on CJLO - Mike from BornBroken on Champions of the Local Scene - http://snd.sc/ZJDMTe 

    Revolver Magazine – Album of The Week – June 10, 2013 

    Named discovery of the year 2012 – Musique d’une nation

    Named discovery of the year 2012 – Québec-Métal

    Voted 2nd best show of 2012 in Montreal -Québec-Métal

    Voted 2nd best show of 2012 in Montreal – Ondes Choc

    “Montreal’s BornBroken simply go for the throat and never let up. Their debut record The Healing Powers of Hate is a no holds barred punch to the face. Combining the aggression of Lamb of God with the riffs of Pantera makes for a modern day polished metal release. A concept record based around mankind’s ability to overcome adversity and rise up against it, the message is powerful and thought provoking.” – About.com – Heavy Metal - Drago’s Dungeon: June 2013 The Month’s Best Unsigned Heavy Metal Bands

    “BornBroken may be the best metal band you probably haven’t heard of. Those who love hard, heavy, angry metal are in for a treat and may find a new favorite in BornBroken. Their latest album, The Healing Powers of Hate, is the perfect combination of heavy meets melodic and combines what you’d hear from Lamb of God, Hatebreed and Five Finger Death Punch into one powerful, melodic, fist-pounding metal experience. There’s not one dull moment here and any metal head should at least check this album out. Rating: 8.5/10″ – TheFrontRowReport

    “These extreme metallers have done an amazing job of combining death and thrash without treading on melodic death too much…The quality of the recording is also up to standards, including some gravity blasts that’ll have you shouting, “fuck yeah!”…This is a debut metal album of epic proportions. If it’s not the Canadian metal album of the year, it’s certainly in the running for Canadian debut metal album.” – 4/5 – Yell Magazine 

    “‘The Healing Power of Hate’ is a well executed album, tight and well produced, at times with strong hardcore influence. I liked the strong profile that the drums took, the guitar breaks were exciting and all the way through the vocals were first rate. The time taken to create it is very evident in the final result.” 4.5/5 – MetalTalk

    “This album is 44 minutes of pure adrenaline infused death-thrash metal at its finest. The Healing Powers Of Hate captures the voice of ‘the broken’ and grants an identity to the thousands of so called misfits that struggle to find a place in our society. Marching to the sounds of brutal bass, slamming percussion, high-speed guitar solos and violently powerful vocals, the broken shall rise.” – LouderThanHell – 5/5

    “The Healing Power of Hate is a great example of why Canadian metal is regarded around the world as being of very high quality: Because, quite simply, it is”. – GoetiaMetal

    “I was sucked in after the first couple of songs and if I had a label I would sign them in a heartbeat! I understand that this release was self-produced and if that is the case these boys are ten steps ahead of the game and will have labels banging through their doors in no time.” – XplosiveMetal

    “Pour percer le domaine du groove métal, tu dois avoir de bons… grooves! Et Bornbroken t’en sert dans bouche à grands coups de louche, toutes très pleines ! Groupe émergeant de la scène québécoise, cette troupe de Montréalais replace les pièces de certains puzzles laissées au sol par des groupes comme Pantera,Lamb of God et Hatebreed car en plus d’être métal et groové, on sent une petite corde bien tendue vers le hardcore métallisée…Si je m’entrainais au gym, question d’augmenter le volume de façon exponentielle de mon chest et de mes bras, c’est sur du Bornbroken que je le ferais!” – MusikUniverse

    “Musically, BornBroken are a more solid, and extremely heavy, lot. Simon Savard and Mike Decker’s surging, Dimebag Darrell-inspired grooves hit like haymakers throughout, aided by the sort of dry, ultra-punchy production Terry Date used to achieve such brutal majesty with Pantera, Unearth, Deftones and on White Zombie’s Astro Creep: 2000. The sound here is huge – especially for a self-released effort – clear and quite pummeling.” – Metal-Rules

    “It’s not often when you find yourself deep inside of a storyline with an album especially a Metal album, and this is exactly where you find yourself being drowned in throughout The Healing Powers of Hate. Every lyric and every song has a purpose and sheds the tearing storyline that is BornBroken. Throughout every well timed riff through the endless pounding of the skins and through each scream and Growl BornBroken brings you down to their deep hell and shows you their vision through The Healing Powers Of Hate.” – KingstonMusicReviews

    “BornBroken deserves broad attention. They’ve already made a very big impression in their native Montreal, both for their live performances as well as their music in general. I honestly don’t know that much about the Montreal metal scene, but I do know that it is getting bigger and more competitive. For these guys to emerge as a local favorite suggests something of their overall quality. Give this one a spin.” SeaofTranquility – 4/5

    “BornBroken’s Healing Powers Of Hate is a powerful album that falls in line with the likes of Pantera, Lamb Of God, and Hatebreed with some thrash inspirations from the likes of Testament, and Slayer.” – Emurg.com

    “I must say that BornBroken’s amalgamation of melodeath, metalcore and modern thrash works very well. It is well balanced and captures only the good aspects of these three genres, reminding us that, despite all the not-so-interesting bands that roam the three genres, melodeath, metalcore and modern thrash do have a lot to offer…Fans of Pro-Pain, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, Machine Head and a wide variety of modern metal bands should definitely check out this potent debut album.” – 4/5 – MetalMusicArchives

    “What BornBroken have done here is create an album that ticks pretty much every box on the seriously heavy tick sheet, managing to put together an album which is heavy, melodic, dark, haunting, and yet uplifting at the same time. Representing the pain and angst that went into making it, this album will connect with your soul, and remind you of what heavy is.” – Loud-Stuff.com

    “So watch for it. Listen to it. These Montreal Metal Thrash-core compadres are definitely onto something different, and not only with regard to the local scene, but for Metal in general. The BornBroken boys are biting off as much as they can chew by creating a heavy-duty concept album, fusing the powers of all their influences and generating a sound that fluctuates between latter day Sepultura and mid-career Lamb of God.” – BetweenTheHorns.ca

    “…At the first look, the album looks like a collector’s item.”
    “…The Healing Powers of Hate as a sound comparable to the big names of the industry…I have the strong impression that everything was thought of on this CD. It’s a very well done album from A to Z. The Healing Powers of Hate from BornBroken is nothing less then a must!!” – Musique D’Une Nation

    “BornBroken is the future of Québec Metal, with 10 titles to discover, even on stage, since the group demonstrates an uncanny and totally uncommon, energetic stage presence. They have poured their guts into the making of this introductory album, their own monies and a wealth of professionalism, which must be recognized. Bravo for an excellent album that one just doesn’t tire of listening to.” – Québec-Métal

    “…le disque est marqué au fer rouge d’une intensité menaçante qui n’épargnera aucun tympan.’’- Bande à part (Radio-Canada)

  • Canadian Rockers DOLL Announce UK Release of New Album 'The Ragdoll Diaries'

    Left to right: Alex Vance – Bass | Peter Kasper – Guitar | Christina Kasper – Vocals + Guitar | Nick Richer – Drums

       Canadian female fronted alternative rockers DOLL are proud to announce the UK release of their new album 'The Ragdoll Diaries' on July 29th via Cargo Records to follow up to their popular award nominated 2009 debut ‘Inside The Dollhouse’.

    "After thousands of copies sold in Canada and in the USA, we're extremely happy to have The Ragdoll Diaries distributed in the UK. Cargo Records has been distributing an amazing catalogue of music for over 13 years and now our UK fans will be able to pick up a copy of the album in stores instead of paying high shipping costs." comments vocalist /guitarist Christina Kasper.

    The Ragdoll Diaries is undoubtedly Doll’s best works to date, working alongside producer Jason Jaknunas for an album that has it all, creative musicianship, honest lyrics, and a truth that’s been missing in music for some time. Supported by the fearlessly rocking threesome of Pete Kasper, Nick ‘Chopz’ Richer and newcomer to the Doll family Alex Vance, this is one band that you don’t want to miss getting in on the party early and staying for days while you zone out the beautifully crafted yet fiercely hard hitting tunes.

    The grunge punksters have released their third and latest music video 'Plastic Lies' in support of 'The Ragdoll Diaries', which follows their two previous music videos 'Youth of Today, Hope For Tomorrow' and 'FMO'.

    Formed in 2005, Doll provides the missing link between punk and rock, a sound that’s been lacking in mainstream music for quite some time. With fresh and honest songs cutting through like a hot knife through butter, the rockers snap the listener out of their daze and onboard their trip of truth and beautifully crafted angst through sound and vision. Inspired by the great bands such as Sonic Youth, Hole and L7, Paramore, Flyleaf and Die Mannequin, Doll is on its way to becoming a creative and honest musical force to be reckoned with.

    2012 saw great advances for the band, completing several successful Eastern Canadian tours, and breaking into the US market on their first ever tour through America, their live show is evolving and becoming one of the highlights of Canadian music. With strong performances at year’s past festivals such as the Ottawa Bluesfest, IndieWeek Canada, NXNE, and D-Tox Rockfest, a strong review in many major publications such as Outburn and Revolver Magazines, along with local support from the Ottawa Xpress being nominated over years in the Best Rock album and Band categories, sharing the stage with Protest The Hero, Lacuna Coil, Three Days Grace and tons more, to selling out over 1,000 copies of both albums and 500 vinyls of the Ragdoll Diaries, video plays across MuchMusic and MusiquePlus, and ever increasing radio plays, the band has embraced DIY to its highest degree continually improving its social media reach and brand awareness. You can expect big things from Doll in the near future! 2013 will prove to be a game changer not only for the band, but the Canadian musical landscape, with plans to return to the US and to branch out even further into Canadian markets.

    “Doll has what it takes to popularize the sounds of the 90s all over again“ - The Ottawa Sun

    “Gritty, Angst-Riden music that doesn’t F#@K around“ - Now Magazine

    “This is serious music, dark, intense, and magnetic“ - Exclaim Magazine

    “Punk'N'Roll 8/10 Doll is a raucous female fronted quartet based out of Ottawa, Canada that slings 11 hard driving tracks full of punk, metal, grunge, and rock. Frontwoman Christina Kasper could simply steal the show with her aggressive demeanor and her gritty/streetwise approach to singing, but that wouldn't be fair to the band that surrounds her. While Kasper does add her guitar playing to the mix, Peter Kasper shreds each track with a vibrant blend of metal, punk and good ol' rock'n'roll. The intricate guitarwork ranges from full-on-metallic onslaughts to swirling walls of atmospheric rage and contempt. Nick Richer thunders in the background on the drum kit, helping each track rumble and rock by hammering away and pummeling the tracks into an abrasive viscosity. Add to that the fact that Doll absolutely nails a cover of Billy Idol's White Wedding and you have the makings for a viable leader in the hard punk and metal underground. ” - Outburn Magazine

    “Few words from the music encyclopedia bring waves of nostalgia back stronger than the mere mention of "grunge." Itself a semi-corrupt term for a scene nobody really understood at the time, grunge was more of a label for an era of rock philosophy – one in reaction to 80s glam and cock-rock – than it was a description of a particular sound. Ottawa band Doll clearly understand this principle, for though they proudly slap the label of grunge on their music, it is more of a badge of affiliation with the ideals of the time than the actual grunge scene. In The Ragdoll Diaries, 12 tracks of heavy rock riffs build on the wave after wave of ascending guitar sections that buoy the impressive range of lead singer Christina Kasper. ”- Ottawa Xpress

    “The debut from Ottawa's Doll caught me instantly like a fish on a hook. This is serious music. Dark, intense and magnetic, this is the kind of gritty '90s grunge that doesn't fuck around. Fronted by the vocally vicious Christina Kasper, Doll recall an angry and confused era of music devoid of pop but not catchiness. Kasper howls in the vein of Courtney Love and Brodi Dalle, and while the lyrics are simple and not exactly fresh, they are impacting. Songs like "Perfect" deal with trying to live up to society's standards, while "Sally Lost Her Shoelaces" and "Daddy's Little Girl" deal with hurt, confusion and heroin against a backdrop of chunky guitars, assaulting drums and badass attitude. Julie-Anne Madore's backing vocals add a whispered, haunting feel to this record. If the dirty rock'n'roll alone doesn't reel you in, nothing will. (Independent)”- Exclaim Magazine

    “It's rare nowadays that I get a record that gives me that good old screeching metal jolt that everyone (in my estimation anyway) needs from time-to-time. I certainly get that from The Ragdoll Diaries, the sophomore album from Ottawa quartet Doll. The band melt are a relentlessly hard-driving metal machine, with razor-sharp punk arms and hefty grunge legs welded onto it. The breakneck pace of "If I Could" and the take-no-shit first single "FMO" are powered by the vocals of Christina Kasper, who's defiant and forceful style is equal parts Kat Bjelland and Kittie. If you don't dig Doll's absolutely vicious rendition of Billy Idol's "White Wedding", then you just don't like hard music. This is not music for the tender-eared. - TO Snob

    “Despite its progressive nature, punk rock is largely dominated by men; however, Ottawa’s Doll demonstrates clearly that women can hold their own as the face of a punk band. Ragdoll Diaries is the band’s second album. With dirty bar rock forming the backbone of their sound, vocalist Christina Kasper’s singing is a throwback to ’90s grunge acts such as Hole or L7. The band’s rhythm section does a great job supporting Kasper’s vocals, which are certainly the centerpiece of the band’s music. After releasing Inside the Dollhouse in 2009, Doll spent a few years touring much of Canada alongside bands such as SNFU, Danko Jones, The Creepshow, and others. It appears as though rubbing shoulders with some of the genre’s finest has rubbed off on the band, who demonstrate a more mature and confident style with their latest release than in previous work. If Doll is coming through your neck of the woods, you’d be remiss not to check them out. - Canadian Musician Magazine
