Their first Metal Blade release, Quiet Earth, showed what that earth's last sound might be like. It was heavy, sick, and crazy; stomping and banging, elegiac with cello. Just beneath the rock they described a bad trip through a devastated world where resigned dignity and camaraderie with the friends that remain are the only consolations.
This mixture of rowdiness and gentleness is very much of their hard-living, hard-loving hometown: f*#%$d-up modernity's last outpost on the rim of a vast, menacing wilderness. In their new release, James sings, "Vancouver's an empty bottle, our dying thirst causing problems. Stand at dawn, the beginning of something heartfelt and replaceable." No matter where we are, this is what it has come to in this age. So let's listen to these gentlemen and rock out together.
"…intense, guitar heavy thrash that would make even Municipal Waste step back in awe." Alternative Press
"…they dare to approach the maniacal majesty of present-day High on Fire." Decibel Magazine
"…unpretentious, mountainous rock…frequently sound like Mastodon at their most straightforward, coming impressively close to that band's mastery of the riff." Terrorizer Magazine
Explore Music is a Canadian multimedia rock music recommendation project run By Corus Interactive and Integrated Solutions, the online arm of Corus Radio. It consists of a website, a syndicated radio show, and a weekly TV show that offers exposure to songs and artists with the vision of providing "context, perspective, recommendation and discovery of music that's new (or new to you). ExploreMusic achieves this through artist interviews, exclusive performances, music news, album reviews, and lists of recommended songs that are presented on a daily and weekly basis.
The radio program was first broadcast on 6 October 2008 on 102.1 The Edge in Toronto, Y108 in Hamilton, FM96 in London, Power 97 in Winnipeg, and The Fox in Vancouver. The show has since been included on Live 88.5 in Ottawa, Rock 101.9 in Cornwall, X92.9 in Calgary, SONiC 102.9 in Edmonton, and The Wolf 101.5 in Peterborough, Ontario, with plans to branch out to more affiliates in the future. The program began syndication in the United States after ExploreMusic partnered with FMQB.
