Flotsam and Jetsam, an American thrash metal and progressive metal band that formed in Phoenix, Arizona in 1981. The band currently consists of vocalist Eric "A.K" Knutson, guitarists Michael Gilbert and Steve Conley, bassist Michael Spencer, and drummer Ken Mary. Flotsam and Jetsam went through several lineup changes over the years, and Knutson has been the only constant member of the band. They are also notable for featuring bassist Jason Newsted, who left the band shortly after the release of their debut album to join Metallica as Cliff Burton's replacement.
"You can listen to pretty much any song on 'The End Of Chaos' and go, 'You know what? This would have fit on [1995's] 'Drift' or this would have fit on [1988's] 'No Place [For Disgrace]' or this one would have done well with one of the other records. There are little bits and hints of every era of FLOTSAM. Knutson also commented on the fact that "The End Of Chaos" has turned out to be one of the heaviest albums of FLOTSAM's career. "I like to do the ballads and stuff, because I get to show off my voice a little bit," he said. "We had a couple of ballads in the 43 songs I had to choose from, and they just didn't come anywhere near the stuff that ended up on the record. It was a no-brainer to just keep it fast and heavy, and every song I wrote the next lyrics to ended up being faster and heavier than the one before. It just kind of fell into place that way."
The Thrash/Death-Metal band 'Untimely Demise' was formed in April 2006 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan by brothers Matthew and Murray Cuthbertson. The group is making their mark on the metal music scene by incorporating the influences of genre-leaders Megadeth, Death, Arch Enemy, Testament, Exodus, and so forth into an ambitious package that places a paramount focus on guitar-work and musicianship. Having toured Canada extensively for nearly a decade, Untimely Demise has built a reputation as a go-to group for headlining dates, but also as support for metal heavyweights.
The League of one
Prairie born and metal bred, Regina's League of One is a stoner rock power trio full of give'r and tone to boot. With a sound like no other today, The League is sure to have you captivated from the first note.
The debut of all new post-thrash, groove metallers "Sorceress" featuring former members of Psymatik, Into Eternity and Circles & Revolution. An unrelenting, crushing wall of sound - only pierced by the monumental vocals of Johnny Bellamy - Sorceress brings decades of songwriting experience and varied influences into a new collective with a renewed focus on music as an art form.
