AMF Live Videos

When preparing for a recent podcasting episode I happened to come across a folder created during Armstrong Metalfest. This was sometime during day one I made my way back to camp and copied over a bunch of AMF live videos to make room on my phone for more. Which actually never happened. Anyways, below is a collection of songs

The Vth Circle live video

I don’t know much about The Vth Circle but I did enjoy their set at AMF. I contacted the band to let them know I had this footage which they were very appreciative of and told me the song is actually called The Storm and Rotter. Two songs back to back. So bam. Two for the prize of zero!

They also have a ton of material on their Bandcamp. The vocal style is very a very evil style of raspy growls while the music is full on melodic death metal. That’s quite different from what normally comes out of this part of the world for metal. It easily has this Scandinavian styled sound not too different from the likes of say early Soilwork or Dark Tranquillity.

Liberatia live video

Thrashy death metal. Fast and intense stuff which reminds me a little of Dead Asylum or West of Hell (though different but sometimes similar style of vocals). I spent some time with these releases as well and quite enjoyed what I heard.

Liberatia is playing Kelowna on August 17th along with Truent and Apollyon. After watching this found footage and listening to their Bandcamp I’m quite stoked to see them play.

Widow’s Peak

This video was already provided in a recent blog post I did about their cross Canada tour that is currently happening. So just to repost something (hey, I can do that from time to time) here is Widow’s Peak “Pillars of Failure”. Matt has a great intro to the song explaining what it is about:

“This song is about getting trapped inside your own fucking head. And building up an empire for anyone who ever fucking told you you couldn’t do what you wanted to do. … If anyone ever told you you couldn’t do something. If anyone ever told you you weren’t fucking good enough. Now’s the time fucking shine.”

I really like these dudes. They are good understanding people who provide a very positive message with their music. Did I ever mention their tech death is crazy good? I highly recommend people to give their Graceless EP a chance and get out there to see them play on their cross Canada tour!

Exterminatus

This guys slap so hard! They recently played in Kelowna and I got a shit ton of footage for these dudes. We got together to do a written interview recently and one of these days I’ll get together with them to record a podcast episode. That is when the stars align.

These dudes also have a fantastic style of tech death that is quite literally out of this world. Being Warhammer 4K inspired. Check out their Bandcamp and our YouTube channel for more kick ass metal.
