THE SLYDE borrow riffs and ideas from the metal bands that came before them, but sometimes that doesn't matter if they prove they know what to do with their borrowed ideas. THE SLYDE absolutely know what to do with the borrowed prog-rock past. ...

August 2019 WINNIE BRAVE describe themselves as a foot stompin’ Americana/Roots duo comprised of Amy McIsaac (vocals/guitar) and “one-man-band” Brad McIsaac (bass/foot drums/keys).

Review: Gold Stars to EX ØMERTA as they release debut self-titled album

EX ØMERTA released their self-titled debut on July 5th. I attended their release show at the Good Will Social Club. The line up for the release party included NORTHERN ROYALS, THE BOY & THE SEA, and LOA.
EX ØMERTA’s alternative/hard rock has been around since 2014 and they have released a few singles. This 11 track debut album is long awaited by fans and many wonder what took so long. I don’t think anyone will argue it was worth the wait. ...
