Canadian Metal – New Release Round-Up: February 2016, part 2

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.

Wake
Sowing the Seeds of a Worthless Tomorrow
(Sentient Ruin / Everyday Hate / 7 Degrees / Nerve)
“… True, these twenty minutes are ingrained with H-bomb sized detonations of anger into each crusted, blackened moment. Within that time, though, Wake digs deep and dives through the bottom of the familiar grind formula to find some emotional grandness as well. …” — Read the rest of Justin Allec’s review here.


… And here are a couple more releases of note that fall outside our usual metal mandate.
