Looking for some live metal this week/end? (Toronto, Hamilton, Montreal)

While going through the Hellbound inbox I found a message from earlier this month – an email letting us know of some bands crossing the border into Canada this weekend and asking for a little help spreading the word. Finding myself with the time to check out their Bandcamp pages, I decided to take the next step and mention the shows. But while I’m at it, I figured I’d share some info on a few other gigs taking place this weekend and coming week that might be worth your attention.

Moon Tooth and Rozamov

Moon Tooth (Long Island, NY) describe their music as “Aggressive Progressive Rock/Metal.” Their newest album, Chromaparagon, came out in February – you can sample it below or buy your own copy at moontoothny.bandcamp.com.  The band has a full US tour with Intronaut and Entheos lined up for July and August.


Rozamov (Boston, MA) recently wrapped up the recording their own first full length doom album, and audiences on the current tour jaunt will get a chance to hear what’s in store. In the meantime, you can check out “Ghost Divine” from last year’s split release with Deathkings on Midnite Collective at rozamov.bandcamp.com.

    Having been one of the few, the proud, the Marines who saw Dead Quiet and Black Wizard in Toronto last weekend, I highly recommend that show to anyone in the Hamilton area.
