This is the metal music blog of the Heavy Metal Sasquatch. Thriving in the mosh pit environment, all the Yeti needs for sustenance is metal. I review underground metal, upload shitty pictures from shows I go to, and share wicked new metal bands I find along the way. Read this blog to discover new metal! \mXm/
The Heavy Metal Sasquatch is still recovering from the mass chaos that ensued last night at the Sound Academy in Toronto! Regardless of a few minor technical difficulties, all four bands killed their sets with high energy intense metal fury. This concert will be remembered for a long time, having one of the best mosh pits i've been in for years, seeing the thrash gods of Testament, the return of Jesse Leach to Killswitch, a crazy guy on acid in the rafters, the Wall of Death during Black Label, as well as all around good times had by all. Kudos to everyone who clashed with me in the pit, I have a feeling you feel a bit worse than I do today! As well as a huge cheers to all the bands; especially Lamb of God who absolutely destroyed the place last night! Check out some pictures from the night below.
Something big has been lurking in the Great Lakes surrounding Ontario; brace yourselves for the arrival of Robot Shark Attack. October 8th marked the release of Robot Shark Attack's first project, Oxygenesis, featuring 8 tracks full of completely instrumental and original heavy riffs mixed with passionate mind-altering ambiances of epic proportions. Drawing from influences such as Cloudkicker, SGX and August Burns Red, Oxygenesis is a post-metal masterpiece combining a backbone of heavy metal with a variety of well thought out electronic synthetics. The result is a completely wicked and unique musical entity, closely resembling a bestial mechanical sea creature. While listening to the album, the Heavy Metal Sasquatch was transported to another dimension, relaxing my body and soul without ever straying me to far from the liquid metal that runs hot through my veins. Robot Shark Attack can without a doubt call Oxygenesis a success with songs like "Kevin Bacon Strips", "Awesome Sauce" and "Crouching Tiger Shrimp, Hidden Dragon Fruit" providing absolutely bad-ass instrumental riffs with electronic mastery while at the same time presenting mind blowing depth. You can give Oxygenesis a listen and a download below, or from robotsharkattack.bandcamp.com. Also make sure to like them on facebook @ www.facebook.com/pages/Robot-Shark-Attack/157524101067198.
-Robot Shark Attack is simply amazing. Easy on the ears and the soul, and is definitely worth your time. So buckle up, sit back, relax, spark it up and enjoy the ride that is Oxygenesis \m/
