Hell Hounds are a product of Regina, SK, where classically trained vocalist and multi instrumentalist Viviana Aaren, recently having relocated from her native Switzerland, joined the newly formed group in 2013 led by guitarist Ryan Pawelko. Pawelko had recently completed a year of Music Education at the University of Regina and formed Hell Hounds with bassist Joseph Maciag and drummer Ryan Bennett (who also joined Altars of Grief on drums in 2018) with the intent of assembling a group capable of a dark and operatic delivery with lush orchestral overtones. Brad Korol (keyboards) rounds out the current Hell Hounds line up, and Donny Pinay (also active as the bassist of Saskatchewan Doom Metallers Altars of Grief) adds rhythm guitars on stage.
Their first independent CD release, “Paint the World”, (2017) attracted the attention of Canadian college radio nationwide and made it onto hard rock & metal charts across the country for nearly two consecutive months. With a huge sound reminiscent of the operatic metal of Nightwish and Epica, Hell Hounds has already won over a wide audience – from traditional metal fans and goths to old school headbangers eager for acrobatic and virtuosic guitar riffs.
Singularity started back in August of 2012 when Jared McRorie decided to push his guitar playing to new limits. With lineup changes along the way, and an extended hiatus between fall of 2016 and winter of 2018, Singularity is back and better than ever with Jared McRorie and Aidan Lindberg shredding twin lead guitars, Pierre Bazin playing complex and creative drum patterns, Valerie Dawn leading as the new front of the band and vocalist, and Jon Foreman joining with his driving bass lines.
Singularity’s particular brand of technical and melodic metal, characterized by many leads and solos, both often harmonized, has made an impression on the Canadian scene. They have had the honour and pleasure of opening for metal titans such as Trivium, Striker, Act of Defiance, XUL, Alterbeast, Inferi, and Rivers of Nihil as well as local metal kings Into Eternity and Untimely Demise!
Aiséirí is a Saskatoon-based folk metal band. The group draws its influences from traditional Celtic music, as well as European metal bands. These group of talented musicians are quickly making a name for themselves and certainly won't disappoint. These guys are climbing the ranks faster than Monica did Bill! Don't miss them!
FMC Lost in space aboard the FMC Stan Akroid, this rag-tag group of unlikely spacers first appeared by entering low Earth orbit just in time for Band Wars X. Transmitting over stolen alien technology, they made a spectacular appearance in photo-realistic holographic form, indistinguishable from the real thing (radiation exposure was mostly minimal)!
Incorporating influences in metal from all over the galaxy they aim to bring Earth up to speed on what music can actually be, taking the human race one step closer to induction into the galactic order...
