As I mentioned in the first of these posts, Adam Wills and I are always seeking out new Canadian metal releases to highlight on our CFMU* show, Kill Eat Exploit the Weak. Today’s entry is the third of the year, covering Canadian metal released between February 13 and today, February 26, 2016 (more or less). As always, please feel free to let us know about anything else that flew under our radar.
*By the way, CFMU is about to kick off this year’s fundraising drive, so if you’re in the Hamilton area, or listen online, or just want to support campus-community radio, consider showing your support with a pledge or by spreading the word.
