pstrongspan class=”text_exposed_show”About AGGRESSION:/span/strong/p
pFormed in 1985 under the original moniker #8220;Asylum#8221; to be later changed to AGGRESSION, the speed metallers unleashed their 1986 demo #8220;Forgotten Skeleton#8221;, (which saw an album release in 2005) and their debut full length #8220;The Full Treatment#8221; in 1987, which lead them to become one of the most popular bands to rise out of the Quebec and Canadian metal scene. With their manager at the time (Johnny Hart), AGGRESSION quickly became a household name with their concerts sold out everywhere and a fanbase that grew from hundreds to thousands in no time.  Other bands such as Metallica, Slayer, Exodus, Hallow#8217;s Eve, Destruction and others all wanted to see the beast for themselves during tour stops in Montreal. Playing numerous concerts with bands such as Anvil, Celtic Frost, Voïvod, Nuclear Assault, Agnostic Front, D.R.I., Possessed, Dark Angel, Crumbsuckers, Sacrifice and others, AGGRESSION decided to call it quits in 1989 due to external influences./p

p style=”text-align:justify;”The second round of Calgary’s Wacken Metal Battles had a bigger turn out then the previous round, which was also the previous night. Despite the bigger turn out, the sound seemed to be much quieter than Round 1. Overall it was a great show, people were moshing and everyone was enjoying the bands that played. The four bands that competed were strongTrain Bigger Monkeys/strong, strongStatue Of Demur/strong, strongSkymir/strong and strongDethgod/strong./p

p style=”text-align:justify;”strongTrain Bigger Monkeys/strong is an excellent band. I try to catch their shows as much as I can. This band is exciting to watch and have a lot of energy behind them. It’s almost like these guys were all made to play together because they all mesh so well and are a very tight band. Their drummer is one of my favorites in local scene as he is immensely fun to watch and makes drumming look so…/p

pMongol (Devon, AB)br /
a href=”http://ift.tt/WuEfeg” rel=”nofollow”http://ift.tt/WuEfeg/a/p
pForged in the frozen bowels of Devon, Alberta, by members, Tegri, Zev, and Bourchi. The folk metal act #8220;Mongol#8221;, pays homage to the Mongolian Empire of old. Blending heavy melodic riffs, with an array of folk instruments, and Asian harmonies, Mongol creates a sound that stands apart from any other Folk Metal band./p
pTyrant ( Edmonton, AB)br /
a href=”http://ift.tt/1Cvv4LU” rel=”nofollow”http://ift.tt/1Cvv4LU/a/p
pTyrant is a five-piece heavy metal band hailing from the small town of Gibbons, Alberta. Influenced by bands like Metallica, As I Lay Dying, Lamb of God, and Sylosis, the band combines modern metal with classic thrash metal. Tyrant’s melodic lead lines, shredding solos and powerful screams create high-energy songs, which bleed into their live show. Tyrant’s live performances include heavy music, lots of head banging, and usually at least one member of the band in the crowd moshing./p
pBlack Collar ( Srpuce Grove, AB)br /
a href=”http://ift.tt/1Jitjn8″ rel=”nofollow”http://ift.tt/1Jitjn8/a/p
pBlack Collar has a straight up fucked up kind of metal brand that they bring to every show. With a metal sensation that feels like its straight out of the 90#8217;s along side bands like Pantera and Exodus. you will find it hard not to throw down to their tunes while they are on stage./p
pAnd/p
pRavage Redbr /

DEBUT SHOW**/p
pRavage Red will be making this their Debut show and what a show to play. Ravage Red is a five-piece metal band from the surrounding Edmonton area. Thrash, groove, and overall aggression from Mike (drums), Spencer (guitar), Cody (guitar), Lucas (bass) and Billy (vocals) will leave you no option but to bang your head!/span/p
pstrongAbout:/strong/p
pFarmageddon Open- Air was conceived in 2012 by Tyson Travnik whom is recognized in the Alberta metal scene through sound engineering duties and promotional services. After noticing the 70,000 Tons of Metal cruise, Travnik wanted to re-create the intimate setting and host a festival with no internal borders in the Edmonton area./p
pAfter two very successful years, Farmageddon Open Air has proven to be one of the most prestigious metal open-air festivals in Canada with quality production that has been highly regarded by bands and patrons alike. The festival falls into a special category with Travnik setting goals of bringing in top-shelf bands that rarely, if ever play Canada. The costs of doing so are reflected in the ticket price with maximum attendance numbers not being something on the agenda. Keeping an intimate setting between the bands and their fans along with growth of the metal sub-culture to aid in promoting some of the hardest working bands in the country is at the forefront of Farmageddon#8217;s priority./p
pEach year, the festival has hosted over 30 bands, with the request reaching as far as Europe and Asia. Farmageddon prides itself in only selecting the bands that the organizers feel have proven themselves worthy of the festival. This is not based on show attendance figures, but rather by judging the work ethic of the band throughout the previous year. With many new features and additions planned for Farmageddon 2015, organizers are pushing forward to double the attendance numbers from 2014./p

pstrongAbout:/strong/p
pHarnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist  Matty J “Moose” to create strongPyschostick/strong, a band they#8217;ve coined as humorcore. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US of A, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000./p
pNow residing in Chicago, IL, with four full-length albums behind them – “We Couldn’t Think of a Title” (2006), their holiday album “The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride” (2007), “Sandwich” (2009),  and “Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D#8221; (2011), the almost 100 percent do-it-yourself laugh factory, strongPsychostick/strong returns with their signature sound (Chimaira, Machine Head and Hatebreed sexing Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic) to showcase their latest offering, the crowd funded album strong#8216;IV: Revenge of The Vengeance#8217;/strong (fan thank you video a href=”http://ift.tt/1wtlkye”http://ift.tt/1wtlkye/a) strongdue out on November 4, 2014/strong. Featuring a hilarious track listing that includes previously released singles the beard anthem a href=”http://ift.tt/1n9U06K”#8216;Obey The Beard#8217;/a and popular a href=”http://ift.tt/1jTnoJX”#8216;Dog Like Socks#8217;/a plus new tracks such as #8216;Quack Kills#8217;, #8216;So. Heavy#8217;, #8216;Blue Screen#8217;, and a tribute to the 21st century#8217;s most beloved action super hero #8216;Bruce Campbell#8217;. Psychostick are crazy to share with fans many more comedy sing-a-longs on the road and more!/p

p#8211; 30 #8211;/p
pstrongem#8220;In a genre with a lot of anger, aggression and seriousness, every once in a while some levity is good. That#8217;s wherea href=”http://ift.tt/zPHXXg” target=”_blank”Psychostick/a come in. Their fourth albumIV: Revenge Of The Vengeance is musically solid and lyrically amusing.#8221; #8211; Heavy Metal #8211; About.com/em/strong/p
pemstrong#8220;humorcore band Psychostick is like the Jerry Seinfeld of metal. On its fourth full-length release, IV: Revenge of The Vengeance, the band’s sound invokes similarities too oddball artists such as Mr. Bungle, GWAR, Primus, Green Jello, Scatterbrain and Austrian Death Machine, to name a few. On its 21 ridiculous tracks (including various short skits between songs), the band explores its brand of observational comedy mixed with brutal breakdowns. The band exceeds expectations by parodying popular culture, relationships and binge drinking.#8221; #8211; Bravewords/strong/em/p
pemstrong#8220;Psychostick pulls the pin from a hand grenade and shoves it down the gullet of comedy. When it explodes, anyone within earshot finds themselves covered in the entrails of hilarity! These guys are off-the-chart insane. Imagine if the cast of “Jackass” formed a metal band with Andy Samberg, Sam Kinison, and Seth Rogen and then they threw a house party that made “Project X” look like amateur hour by comparison. Yeah, now you’re getting it!#8221; #8211; Axs/strong/em/p
pstrongem#8220;I do like when bands like Pyschostick inject humour into songs and REVENGE OF THE VENGEANCE is pretty damn funny#8230;The first single ‘Obey The Beard’ is magnificent and this is coming from a clean-shaven dude. It made me want to grow one. Comedy Metal fans can listen for a couple of inside Metal jokes (Captain Stupid!) and a cameo by ‘snaky’. The production is immaculate and as always these guys are as heavy as hell. Weird Al on crack. I wanted to use that phrase and I couldn’t even think how to work it into this review so I just dumped it here at the end. Humour is so subjective but I know what I like and I really like IV: REVENGE OF THE VENGEANCE.#8221; #8211; Metal Rules/em/strong/p
pstrongem#8220;IV: Revenge of the Vengeance isn’t just a Psychostick album, it’s a Psychostick experience. They really went all out on this album. Not all of it makes sense and some of it may be a little over the top, but that’s what makes this band so great- they aren’t afraid to push the envelope of ridiculousness. In fact, they bask in it. Get ready, world. Get ready for the revenge of the vengeance and one of the most action-packed metal albums ever concocted. Rating: 9/10#8243; #8211; Front Row Report/em/strong/p
pemstrong#8220;The creator of “Humorcore” knock one out of the fucking park with this one (IV: Revenge of The Vengeance). If you’re in a band trying to do parody and funny Metal songs stop right now, you’re just embarrassing yourself, you will not be able to dethrone Psychostick. #8221; #8211; Rock Hard Place/strong/em/p
pemstrong#8220;In #8216;IV: Revenge of The Vengeance#8217; you have more craziness and beard than ever before, weighing in at a whopping twenty one beard bending tracks of strictly tongue in cheek craziness and general insanity with song titles ranging from #8216;NSFW#8217;, #8216;Quack Kills#8217;, #8216;Loathe Thy Neighbor#8217; and the previously unleashed  #8216;Dogs Like Socks#8217; and #8216;Obey The Beard#8217; as well as a cover of Kenny Loggins #8216;Danger Zone#8217;. Add a couple of cameos from Bill Manspeaker, the founder of Green Jello and you can imagine the types of craziness that is unleashed once play is pressed. Simply put, #8216;IV: Revenge of The Vengeance#8217; is beardtastic and in the words of Psychostick #8216;Obey The Beard#8217;.#8221; #8211; Firebrand After Darkness Mag/strong/em/p
pemstrong#8220;make no mistake about it – these guys rock first and foremost, especially on this album’s standouts, the anthemic “Obey the Beard,” as well as “Dogs Like Socks,” which explores the complexities of canine/hosiery relations.#8221; #8211; Erie Reader/strong/em/p
pemstrong#8220;There are so many little things that make this more than your run-of-the-mill laugh and enjoy album. For example, in the lyric book, for the song “Choking Hazard”, it simply displays the pamphlet image of what to do in the event of someone choking. This unpredictable, jokey style they incorporate spills over into their live show and after four albums, they show no wear and tear in their funny bone and no signs of decelerating those head banging riffs. I could ramble a little more, but you’re better off experiencing this yourself. So go buy it already.#8221; #8211; Media Mikes/strong/em/p
pemstrong#8220;This new album features twenty-one tracks of skits and songs that will make you listen to it until you can catch all the references from pop culture, the metal scene, and moments of “did he just say what I think he said?” With the fast paced musings of being stalked by a water fowl in “Quack Kills” to “NSFW” that will never see airplay on your local radio station, the album covers a wide range of subjects in its lampooning. It is no wonder their fans, that have had three albums to delight them in metal geekiness and humor, have waited anxiously for this new release.#8221; #8211; National Rock Review/strong/em/p
pemstrong#8220;Psychostick is not a metal parody band; they are a great metal band with funny songs. “IV: Revenge of the Vengeance” starts off with a movie style trailer that sets you up for the insanity that will follow. There are songs about Anatidaephobia  (which is the irrational fear that one is being watched by a duck), Bruce Campbell , and even a song the gives accurate information on how to help someone that is choking. The album also has some skits that introduce songs, my favorite being the one that introduces the song “So Heavy” in which the band tries to tune to H flat.#8221; #8211; Extreme Metal TV/strong/em/p
pemstrong#8220;How fuck the Psychostick haven#8217;t played in the UK recently I don#8217;t know, I know so many people who love them here. The album is fierce and hilarious,, it remains a thrashy, compact masterpiece with chunky breakdowns and enriched madness. #8221; #8211; Music Review Database/strong/em/p
pemstrong#8220;Ha ha. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha!/strong/embr /
emstrongOkay, give me a moment. I’m still chuckling every time I think of Psychostick’s latest 21 track album Revenge of the Vengeance. Every moment on it is filled with hilarity, from marrying beards, being afraid of ducks and then saving a crowd of people from a dimensional time portal. And I thought I’d heard it all#8230;Tenacious D were the kings of comedy metal, but Rize of the Fenix has made it look like they’ve reached their hay day, as much as I love them. The king’s crown has to go somewhere, and for an album like this, it looks like Psychostick are next in line for the throne.#8221; #8211; Rock Revolt Magazine/strong/em/p

pstrongAbout:/strong/p
pInitially never planning to release his music compositions beyond the borders of just song writing, freelance drummer / instructor Sean Lang was urged by his circle of musician friends whom heard his material to take his creativity to the next level./p
pThe outcome is Seven Year Storm, which showcases Lang#8217;s unique sound, music arrangements written entirely by him plus guitarist Dean Lamb (Archspire) whom handles all of the mind-bending guitar leads and solos. Everything comes together into songs that are tight and heavy, melodic and groovy, technical yet memorable./p

pem“The Body Politic share a similar desire to take their art in new directions. Opening track “Vitam Agere” is the perfect intro to the EP, short ,modern and original, and something that would work well in film soundtrack. Second track “Armature” shows the band to be technically adroit but not at the expense of song-writing. “All Hands” mixes precision with power, while “Swing For The Fences” shows The Body Politic are very much making music for the 21st century. “Colqhoun” has a raw power to match its melodies. Finishing with the fine “Irradiate,” it’s clear that The Body Politic are a band with the potential to cross over to a wide audience indeed.” – Hellbound/em/p
pem“Watch these prog-metal masters as they rip through “Armature,” a song off of the band’s forthcoming self-released EP, Egressor… If you’re into the likes of Periphery and Protest The Hero, this song will most certainly get your blood flowing. And in all the right directions, you dig?” – Gunshy Assassin/em/p
pem“As sonically savage as it is melodically radiant, Egressor provides one sizeable tempest of aggression, passion, and technical invention which thrusts Canadian progressive metallers The Body Politic into a whole new spotlight. The EP is a furious yet seductive storm which is as accomplished and gripping in its senses ravaging enterprise as it is in its rich croon of melodic and harmonic endeavour. The six track encounter provides a blistering fascination and unpredictable adventure which took a short while to reveal all its glories but emerged as another of the rigorously compelling events of the year….The release impresses in many aspects, the technical craft, explosive adventure to the songwriting, and the striking vocals of Sam Britton the most striking of these.” – Ring Master Review/em/p
pem“This collection of songs is well produced; the clarity and power exuding through the headphones is amazing given that this group are yet to be signed to a major label. A doff of the cap must be made to those who financed and produced this EP. It delivers the intricate collective guitar work expertly with the vocals front and centre. Vocal duties are split with Sam Britton offering the melodic and thoughtful response to the hoarse rasping of Jesse Janzen who also plays bass. Special effects and background sounds come through clearly adding atmosphere and tension where needed…The album provides nourishment for those fans who like to dissect a song’s technical elements as well as fans that enjoy the overall presentation. This is an expertly put together snapshot of the group’s capabilities and this reviewer certainly hopes that it will result in a bit of major label attention and well deserved support… I would be delighted to see this band deliver their brand of honest, raw and technically fantastic music live and think that audiences over here would be very open to their brand of passionate yet technically brilliant music.” – RocknReel Reviews/em/p
pem“The Body Politic combines staccato rhythms with catchy vocal melodies and blends them in a killer progressive metal package. “Egressor” their new six song EP is a short but extensive slice of modern metal…The production on “Egressor” is top notch and the musicianship…there is no denying that “Egressor” is a great album…Go get your grubby little hands on The Body Politic’s Egressor” – Extreme Metal Television/em/p
pem“Lively yet brutally honest, their music hooks you in an intense whirl of emotions. Do yourself a big favor, listen to their song “Armature”- it is positively one of the best song of the year, bar none.” – PhilRadioCast/em/p
pem“The feverish energy and charisma that floats through your speakers while you listen to Egressor will leave you enlightened with a sense of purpose and motivation.”- Damnation Mag/em/p
pem“Wow! Yes, this is what I said, when I started listening to The Body Politic, as their latest ep “Egressor” comes at you like a locomotive engine, yet puts you at ease with their melodic vocals and melodic guitars.” – Explicitly Intense/em/p
pem“their newest EP, Egressor, their heaviest effort yet while still keeping the originality and captivating melodies from before…gives a little something to all participating audiences whether it’s heaviness and groove or melodic brilliance. This is one that progressive metalcore fans can’t miss.” – We Love Metal/em/p
pem“technical brilliance.This is an EP of six cuts that slash twenty minutes long that brings together all the ingredients for modern and advanced metal.” – Noizz Webzine/em/p
pem“a terrific EP of six dramatic metal landscapes.” – Metal Nation Radio/em/p
pem“With its six songs, Egressor is organized like a short album rather than a promo EP. It starts with “Vitam Agere”, a keyboard-oriented instrumental intro, then switches gear on “Armature”, where vocals come in. One thing that immediately struck me is how much The Body Politic’s music breathes. It is apparent that the band knows how to gage the keyboard, bringing it in only when it adds something to the whole, while balancing technique with efficiency. The 7-strings attack stands out, as well as the mechanical math-grooves and the metronome-articulated songwriting. With its cold beauty, “All Hands” reminded me of Sybreed, aside from the clean vocals chorus. There are highlights for each instruments on this EP, for example drums have a particularly nice routine on “Swing for the Fences”. While The Body Politic sounds and plays exactly like a metalcore band (think about Bring Me the Horizon or Parkway Drive), there is a clear venture on progressive territories and a mix of influences, including Opeth (“Colquoun”) and Dream Theater (“Irradiate”).” – Metal Made In Canada/em/pbr / a rel=”nofollow” href=”http://ift.tt/1t2U7nj”img alt=”" border=”0″ src=”http://ift.tt/1t2U7nl” //a img alt=”" border=”0″ src=”http://ift.tt/1t2U62Q” width=”1″ height=”1″ /brbr
