In the last couple of months, Bleed Again have unveiled singles, “Through My Eyes”, “Decimate” along with the new single and video for ‘Walk Through The Fire’.

Vocalist James Dawson talks about the meaning behind ‘Walk Through The Fire’


“Walk Through The Fire is about facing your demons head on. Using the pain and failures in life to learn from and pass that onto future generations. I have learnt a lot from my parents and friends experiences to help me through my own issues. If I can pass that knowledge onto my own children and loved ones then we can always step closer to salvation”.

Bleed Again are currently on tour to promote ‘Momentum’ supporting Death Remains, with the tour coming to a mighty close on the 6th May with the bands album launch show hosted by Mammothfest and with headliners Brutality Will Prevail, Raging Speedhorn and more.

ARMSTRONG METAL FEST Reveal Set Times For 2017 Line Up w/ REVOCATION, NINJASPY, AGGRESSION, GOLERS and more!


armstrong festival.jpg

ARMSTRONG METALFEST reveals the set times for their 2017 line up being held on July 14th and 15th at the Hassen Arena in Armstrong, BC. This year’s headliners include Boston’s tech death / thrash titans REVOCATION, Vancouver’s reggae-metal fusion NINJASPY, Canadian 80’s thrash legends AGGRESSION and the Broken Neck Radio people’s choice winner GOLERS among many more from across the country. (Full list of bands and set times below.)

Situated in the Okanagan Valley with the beautiful backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, ARMSTRONG METALFEST, now in its ninth year, is British Columbia’s largest gathering of metalheads from across Western Canada and beyond.

Festival co-founder Jesse Valstar comments:

“The team members of West Metal Entertainment poured their sweat and blood into making this year’s line up for Armstrong Metalfest the best year yet! A large portion of this year’s line up consists of bands who will be releasing albums in 2017. The fact that so many bands in Canada are able to write and record quality material is a real testament to the thriving metal scene we have. The band submission process is a grueling gauntlet of awesomeness, but personally I love every second I dedicate to the brilliant artists of Canadian Metal! 

I am especially excited to have Revocation on this year’s edition of Armstrong Metalfest. Their style is hella fitting for the festival and I know they will be well received! Also, their album “Great Is Our Sin” is fantastic front to back. I’ll be front row center screaming my heart out for sure!

I am very proud of the work our team has put into year nine of Armstrong Metalfest. Our work is paying off, so far this year we have broken every record for ticket sales we have ever had. As a community we built this festival from the ground up. As the festival grows, so does our community. We are all proud of this big beautiful beast!”

Weekend pass available for $120 CAD regular pre-sale with camping included in ticket price. Weekend of festival, the weekend pass will be $160 CAD at the festival gate. Day pass will be available at the festival gate only for $70 CAD. Camping is an additional $20 CAD for day pass per night.

Canadian Fest Celebrating Women In Metal METALOCALYPSTICK Announce First Batch of Bands To Line Up


 

Based in Valemount, BC near Jasper National Park with the beautiful backdrop of the Canadian Rockies, there stands an outdoor festival that just doesn’t celebrate Heavy Metal, but embraces the power of women in metal.

Formed in 2016, METALOCALYPSTICK FEST was created to present a unique experience within the Western Canadian metal community, a gathering of similar views, aspirations and musical taste. (similar to former mainstream music festival Lilith Fair.)

Founded by Kaija Kinney of Vancouver’s Anarcheon after researching a lack of female based metal festivals to apply her band to, Kinney took matters into in her own and decided to produce the event.

Kinney comments:

“This festival means the celebration of both sexes coming together and creating something amazing. People like to say women in metal aren’t a big deal anymore and that we are all the same. I feel that is untrue, this is still a male dominated world and woman are still looked as lesser. I want to showcase all these bad ass ladies and celebrate the differences of men and woman rather than pretend we are all equal. Truth is we are different why can’t we celebrate that?”

In addition to the festival celebrating women in metal, the METALOCALYPSTICK FEST gives back to the community by being a non-profit organization dedicated to raise funds and donating 100% of proceeds to local charities Girls Rock Camp, Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter, Earth Protectors plus an audience picked foundation.

The 1st annual Metalocalypstick hosted female influenced metal bands from across Canada and the world such as Brazil’s Nervosa (Napalm Records), Egypt’s Massive Scar Era, Hollywood’s The Maension, Valfreya, Scythia, Mortillery (Napalm Records), Van Halst, Dead Asylum, Juliet Ruin, Violent Betty, Omega Crom, Körperlose Stimme, Elysium Echoes, Solborn, Monarch Sky, Forsaken Rite, Anarcheon, and Suspended.

Preparing for their 2nd annual year, the outdoor festival for women in metal is proud to announce their first batch of bands added to the line up with Tessitura, Körperlose Stimme, Meteor Tree, Scythia, Hedks, Forsaken Rite and Remnants.

METALOCALYPSTICK presented by Gigfly.ca is being held during Canada Day weekend on July 1st and 2nd in Valemount, BC. For tickets and more info, please visit the following links:
