Legendary rock armada WHITE COWBELL OKLAHOMA have been established since 1999 and on their 20th anniversary, the band is saddling up for tour dates in Ontario and Quebec in the coming months, especially for their highly acclaimed, cult-followed X-mess experience at Lee’s Palace in Toronto, now going on its 16th consecutive year!

“Besides the expected southern-fried onslaught, the Toronto X-Mess concert will feature a dizzying array of surprise guests, nubile flesh, power tools plus the general sullying of long-cherished holiday icons.” says vocalist /guitarist Clem C. Clemsen.

Video of previous X-Mess’ can be viewed here.

WCO‘s “20th XX-Travaganza Anniversary Tour” will kick off with their annual X-mess show in Toronto on December 13th, followed by dates during the months of January and February in southern Ontario and Quebec. (dates listed below).

Clemsen adds:

“White Cowbell Oklahoma are pleased as acid-spiked punch to go into 2020 at the virile, jubilant, uncompromising age of 20! It’s time to up the ante, batten down the hatches and do some really weird shit! New music releases cometh! Unprecedented new shows, tours, productions, and territorial conquests cometh! WCO have embarked on a quest for the lost chord — but we already know it will lead either to Holdsworthian madness, but probably just to Tony Iommi‘s house! Next stop, Silver F*cking Jubilee!”  

Recommended for fans of Deep PurpleZZ Top, and Frank ZappaWHITE COWBELL OKLAHOMA have made their mark appearing at festivals like SXSW, and NXNE plus tours like Rockstar Uproar. The band also regularly performs throughout the European festival circuit, their most recent this past July in Holland and Germany.

Their latest European tour was in support of their studio album “Seven Seas of Sleaze” released on the band’s own label Slick Monkey. The album is packed with trippy groove and enough whiskey-fueled southern rock n’ roll to have you riding WHITE COWBELL OKLAHOMA.

“Magnetic, untamed, infamous and regaled for their strange and sensational stage shows, White Cowbell Oklahoma is the country-fried boogie rock sandwich you didn’t know you were craving.” – Beatroute AB

“given live performances that seem to feature more people onstage than in the audience, chainsaws, strippers, decimated stuffed things (turkeys, play toys and so on), they do aspire to have their music appreciated to the same extent that their image is co-opted, gawked at and gossiped about.” Exclaim!”

“White Cowbell Oklahoma add a touch of psych to their trashy hard rock formula…hellraising Southern-rock-tinged rock ‘n’ roll.” – Now Toronto
There’s no warm-up for White Cowbell Oklahoma’s sixth full-length release, recorded at Zeus’s Toronto studio and also in concert in Amsterdam. As in their live shows, where flames and power tools feature prominently, the underrated Toronto old-school rockers throw us into the fire immediately, and that fire doesn’t die until long after the final chords – from not one, not two, but three guitars – ring out.” – Now Toronto (2015 Mixto Sixto Review)

“a fist-pumping, anthemnic set of songs thick on low-end, pelvic thrust and grit. Easily their most confident effort to date, it displays a new Bell that is streamlined and primed for attack. ” – Exclaim! (2009 Bombardero Review)

Warm Up This Winter With “Unsought Salvation” From Edmonton Prog TYLOR DORY TRIO

New Music Video “East of Eden”

Tylor Dory Trio from Edmonton, Canada are putting out a new record and it’s exactly the warm proggy hug you need this winter. “Unsought Salvation” is full to the brim with warm riffs and spicy drumming, topped with delectable vocals that will comfort you as the nights grow longer. 

TDT explains the connection between the new album and their 2015 debut EP “Carried Away”:

“The album should serve as a valid continuation from ‘Carried Away’ alongside spiritual ties to the first EP. ‘Carried Away’ was tonally quite dark, we feel that ‘Unsought Salvation’ is a more balanced presentation featuring some upbeat tracks alongside darker and heavier tracks that you may have come to expect from listening to ‘Carried Away’.”

For the first single off the album, East of Eden’, the trio have put together a video featuring their adventures in Norway where the full length’s bass, drums, and guitars were recorded with Christer Cederberg at Cederberg Studios in Kristiansand in 2017. Vocals and synth were recorded in their hometown of Edmonton at The Laboradory.

When asked about the themes present in East of Eden’, TDT explains:

“It’s’ our leading single and one of the most accessible and hooky songs on the album. I love how the chorus evolves in this song, getting bigger and bolder each time. A song about betrayal, we feel that East of Eden matches the fire of the lyrics while staying refined musically. Also, the only song, other than the acoustic tracks, recorded on six-string guitars as opposed to eights.”

Watch East of Eden’ via its premiere on Prog-Sphere.com HERE.

Due out December 21, 2019“Unsought Salvation” has something for everyone and will especially be enjoyed by fans of Devin TownsendOpeth, and Porcupine Tree

About:

Tylor Dory Trio was conceived in late 2012 by guitarist/vocalist Tylor Dory and drummer Jonathan Webster. Wanting to step aside from playing in extreme metal bands, Dory and Webster decided to form the duo to explore the music close to their hearts – proggy weird stuff. The trio was completed in late 2013 after the addition of their bassist Slava Fedossenko.

Bringing together influences like OpethAlice In Chains, and Rush; TDT is characterized by proficient musicianship, tight songwriting, and powerful hooks. It’s progressive metal that isn’t pretentious. TDT loves pushing the boundaries of what a power trio can accomplish, but above all else, it’s about the songs.

Musically, they take their fans on a journey through light and dark tonalities, crushing heaviness to ethereal cleanliness, through peaks and valleys that end up coming full circle.

Their latest full length “Unsought Salvation” was recorded with the prolific Christer-Andre Cederberg at his studio in Kristiansand, Norway in February 2017, to be released December 20, 2019, to follow their 2015 EP “Carried Away”

The first chapter “King of The Forest” (North Soul Records) this past June and now “Leviathan and The Deep Dark Blue” (North Soul Records) is ready to be experienced by listeners this coming November 22nd. Releasing their first single is The Seafaerers’ at the beginning of October. The band is ready to share their next track in support of the release with an acoustic video of Morgan Rider performing ‘The Immeasurable Fathoms’, which can be viewed HERE.

Rider adds:

“I’m very happy to finally release a solo live version of some of the music from our new album ‘Leviathan and The Deep Dark Blue’. This is how I wrote and developed all the music for the album, so it’s cool to show it off in this stripped-down version, without all the heavy guitars, bass and drums.”

Morgan Rider and The Deep Dark Rivercombine all the humble qualities of blues, folk and classical into a well-balanced, artfully crafted musical reflection on life, hope and old-fashioned storytelling while delivering a uniquely fresh and uplifting listening experience.

About:Born in 1989, singer, songsmith and multi-instrumentalist Morgan Rider had his earliest imaginings of life as a musician while contending with an often tumultuous childhood. Overhearing his mother – who is a trained operatic soprano – his love and understanding of music blossomed at an early age. Morgan eventually spending his adolescent and early adult years performing in touring metal bands – appearing on tours and large festivals across North America and Europe.

During the summer of 2017, Morgan’s adoration of folk, classical and blues music finally culminated into a project and the beginnings of a collection of songs. The name Deep Dark River had been stuck in his head for years, as a byproduct of his writings and alluding to the very nature of his ideas as a musician and artist. As such, Deep Dark River became the name by which he would perform beneath.

While his ideas began to take form, so did his mindset for what became the early stages of Deep Dark River. In March of 2018, the first original Deep Dark River single ‘The Golden Bough’ was released digitally worldwide. Morgan began performing live and also toured solo to the Canadian east coast to promote the single. In the summer of 2018, the debut album Deep Dark River was released and supported with a full Canadian solo tour over 5 weeks.

As 2018 neared its end, Morgan called upon his friend Nathen Morrison to contribute cello to the sounds of Deep Dark River, solidifying the project as a duo. The pair immediately began rehearsing and recording the first of a four-album quadrilogy – which Morgan had written the bulk of on his travels. The first single featuring the pair – Starfire – was released in March of 2019 along with the album “King of The Forest” released on June 21st, 2019 via North Soul Records. Not slowing down, the pair have their next album just months later “The Deep Dark Blue” planned for release via North Soul Records on November 22nd, 2019 with its lead single ‘The Seafaerers’.

Last year, bands from Canada, Tasmania, Mexico, Egypt, and the USA graced the stage in a phenomenal display of feminine power at the premiere Canadian festival that puts an emphasis on women. Metalocalypstick is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to giving back to the community and donates 100% of the proceeds to local charities including Girls Rock Camp and the Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter.

About:

Featured in publications such as Metal Hammer and Billboard, Metalocalypstick Fest not only celebrates women in metal, but also gives back to the community. Formed in 2016 as a non-profit organization, they are dedicated to raising funds and donating 100% of proceeds to local charities Girls Rock Camp, Vancouver Rape Relief and Women’s Shelter, and Earth Protectors plus they sponsor an independent band picked by Metalocalypstick Fest judges.

The festival was 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 her own and decided to produce the event.

“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 women are still looked at as lesser. I want to showcase all these bad ass ladies and celebrate the differences between men and women rather than pretend we are all equal. Truth is we are different why can’t we celebrate that?” says Kinney.

About:
Inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s legendary grimoire, NECRONOMICON formed in 1988 by founding guitarist and singer Rob “The Witch” in the deep, northern part of Canadian province Quebec, Fjord of Saguenay. NECRONOMICON have a well-earned reputation for quality by releasing material only when ready and satisfied with the outcome ever since their demo entitled ‘Morbid Ritual’ (1992) firmly established their name within the underground. ‘The Silver Key”EP (1996) led to mainstream recognition on a national level, but their debut album ‘Pharaoh Of Gods” (1999) and the sophomore ‘The Sacred Medicines’ (2003) did even more to establish the band as a household name in Canada.

‘Return Of The Witch’ (2010) marked the international break-through for NECRONOMICON, and saw them performing at prestigious festivals such as Inferno (Norway), Ragnarok (Germany), and the Barge To Hell metal cruise among others, while sharing stages with acts such as CRADLE OF FILTHDIMMU BORGIR, BEHEMOTH, and MORBID ANGEL, to name but a few. Their steady advance around the globe grew considerably in impact by their next full-length “Rise Of The Elder Ones” (2013). By the time the band released ‘Advent Of The Human God’ (2016), they were met with international critical acclaim. Now, with ‘Unus’ out October 18, 2019, the band show that they aren’t slowing down and are ready to deliver another vicious strike! Prepare for the darkness to envelop you. In 2019, NECRONOMICON was presented with a certificate of honor for over 30 years of service via H.S. production/Tommy Tremblay, and the people of Saguenay Lac-St-Jean, making them the second band after VOIVOD to ever receive this honor.

“Best moments of BEHEMOTH and symphonic death à la GODFLESH APOCALYPSE while remaining entirely Necronomicon.” – Bravewords

“Advent of the Human God is a truly diverse album, perfectly balancing plenty of atmosphere with their iconic chugging riffs and pummelling blast beats.” – Exclaim!

“Advent of the Human God boasts both a Behemoth-like epic savage grace and Dimmu-esque orchestral pomp. But it also delivers a more primal ferocity and maintains the thematic air that has become Necronomicon’s forte” – Metal Rules

“”Their sound is akin to an Anti-Christ infant spawned from the blasphemous union of Dimmu Borgir and Behemoth.”” – Metal Underground

“The drums crash like Nordic avalanches on tracks like “Alchemy of the Avatar.” With its blazing jugular seeking guitar riffs and crazed piano breaks over top double kick drum insanity, this last song makes for a perfect ending to a blistering listen.” – Beatroute (AB)

“‘Necronomicon opened the show with a thoroughly impressive display of symphonic death metal… The best way to describe them would be a symphonic version of Winds of Creation-era Decapitated, with perhaps some Vital Remains mixed in. Lots of cool grooves and hair spinning moments!’” – Metal Injection (Live Review)

Third Chamber has been lurking around the Calgary metal scene for years, biding their time and working tirelessly to bring to you their debut EP “Harvesting Our Decay” on November 22, 2019.

The greasy and chugging death metal is a myriad of genre flavours taking into account the styles and influences of the five musicians who have been gracing stages for decades in their other projects and bands. Now they have come together to produce a mechanical blackened sound with lyrical content that is not for the faint of heart. The band explains:

“Lyrically the songs are based on the current politicized state of the world. Environmentally, economically and socially everything is used by the beating drums of those in power to maintain control and their position. Musically we are aiming to help you cope with said issues by providing an aggressive yet melodic 25 minutes of blackened death metal sure to make you drive faster and work out harder and maybe even help people realize that a 1st world problem is the least of their problems.”

The five-song EP is introduced with the title track as a single which takes a look at how humanity is destroying the environment with constant wars, exploitation of natural resources and endless pollution. As the band quips:

“We’re f*cked and won’t survive the earth once the healing truly begins.”

Watch the ‘Harvesting Our Decay’ lyric video via its exclusive premiere on Ghost Cult Mag HERE.

With influences primarily being old school death metal, Third Chamber adds a spatter of modern death metal aesthetics to the tune of Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, At the Gates, Misery Index and a touch of Napalm Death.

EP pre-order here. (Digital, CD and a limited quantity of hand-numbered cassettes)

Third Chamber will be playing live in Alberta in November and December. Don’t forget your earplugs.

Show Dates:
Nov 23 – Red Deer, AB – The Krossing

About:

Comprised of several musicians with a long history in Calgary’s metal scene, Third Chamber is cooking up a new, yet familiar death metal sound that will nourish even the pickiest of metal enthusiasts.

With death being the main ingredient in their metal melting pot, hints of grindcore and hardcore also stand out amidst flavours of politically charged lyrics. Third Chamber is not music for the soft, besides being musically ferocious, the lyrical content is a brutal reflection of the current state of the world. From negative motivations of religious organizations, the effects of social media on mental distress, the ever-growing pride of ignorance, the exploitation of our natural resources for the profit of the wealthy and the manipulation and lack of actual truth in most media consumed by the ever-growing bewildered herd.

In 2019, Third Chamber is releasing their debut five-track EP “Harvesting Our Decay”.
