Dripping with stoic longing, Rutherford Royal’s “Back Burner: throbs with unrequited love and ghostly quixotic touches of sonic gesticulations.

The Canadian/American goth rock duo Noah Veil and The Dogs of Heaven have just debuted their new single, “Voices Carry”, taken from their upcoming album Forever Immortal, due out in early 2017.
There has been so much soul-searching over this album, and where to place its prominence in the arena of other industrial and pop-metal bands of its same ilk. For our money, it’s certainly a polished piece of work and will appeal to a younger audience who are enthusiastic about industrial music being integrated with a more popular sensibility.

Well known for her voice in Mary and The Black Lamb, Lindz Riot is taking the reins yet again in her first ever solo effort “Schoolcraft”. Native to Canada, the classically trained vocalist and pianist draws new inspiration from nature, fantasy, trip hop beats, and symphonic orchestration.

We made it to the eastern tip of Canada and back to southern Ontario with few problems other than the occasional horde of raving zombies that needed to be slaughtered. Little did we know that the near vehicular miss we had suffered in Montreal (see Facebook page for pictures of the car that drove up the side of our car and flipped itself but only damaged our car in a very minor way) was actually a hit; the rear axle of our touring vehicle had been cracked in the accident but didn’t break all the way until we were driving…
WATCH OUT CANADA! Rock band Kill Matilda are back with their new album, I Want Revenge, and blast through 10 tracks of grungy rock ‘n’ roll with a gothy twist. The music is simple… but the sound is raw. I like how they’ve brought back the solo bass parts, even if it’s not a complex riff. I thought those parts died in the early 2000’s, but Mykel Exner has proven me wrong. Also, the band brings back Dusty Exner’s spine-chilling, aggressive singing and shouting.
You see a lot of things, living life on the road as a band in a van. Some things are awesome, some things are not. Some things are all too common and we roll our eyes at them condescendingly. Some things are grotesquely unusual and our eyeballs pop out of our skulls. That’s okay though, because everyone knows blind people make better musicians. On our current coast-to-coast of this vast and godforsaken land called Canada, these are the places we have been and the things we have seen.
Lineup: Kill Matilda, Booze Cruise and Overtime Heros. The show was a collision of the Kill Matilda “Zombie Apocalypse Canadian 2011 Tour” and the “Booze Cruise” tour. The road dwellers collided at the month old venue, The Bombshell, for a night of punk and rock n’ roll.
A common trend from the 90s was for artists to release acoustic albums under the name Unplugged.
