Guided Through Darkness (Blog #9)

The last band we played with tonight was the headliner, Guided Through Darkness. A metalcore/post-hardcore band from Cambridge, Ontario/Buffalo, New York. We played with these guys before and they are awesome. They’ve opened for big metal bands such as Reflections and My Ticket Home. They are influenced by bands such as Bullet For My Valentine, Killswitch Engage, and As I Lay Dying.

Check out their latest single, “These Once White Walls”, down below.

This is Identity (Blog #8)

The second band we played with tonight was called “This is Identity”, a 4 piece metal band from Cambridge/Kitchener/Guelph. Bringing their unique styles to their music they’ve come up with something that they’re proud of.

The band has influences from Black Sabbath to Pantera, from The Beatles to Miss May I, and from Nirvana to Slipknot. You can check out this live video of them playing below.

To Your Tomorrows (Blog #7)

So my band had a show earlier tonight with three amazing bands. One of them was alternative rock band from Waterloo, “To Your Tomorrows”. According to their Facebook, they describe themselves with this quote, “Our Good God created us to be loud, so we will be loud We were brought together to teach so we will learn We are made to love, so let us love We are To Your Tomorrows”. You can check out their song, “Like Lambs to the Slaughterer”, down below.

The band Volumes calls their genre “groove metal”. The band has many influences when it comes to songwriting. The band likes metal of course. But according to their Facebook they come from a wide array of musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz, classical, post-rock and hip-hop. “Volumes eclectic tastes blend together to forge a creative bond between several types of genres that are worlds apart”. They also mentioned in their interviews, they write heavy and melodic music that still has a good message behind it. That’s what I like to hear from bands than what the mainstream artists would say in my opinion.

Anger (20 Sounds FAIL)

I was only able to fit 17 tracks in 15 seconds this time. I wanted to fit in three more, but I figured it would sound like garbage, even with the mastering. Normally, I wouldn’t have a problem with this, but at this time, I felt ashamed. Anyways, here’s what I tried to incorporate if I had a bad morning.
