On that day, UXB Press will be releasing their newest book, entitled Eve Of Darkness: Toronto Metal in the ’80s.

Hellbound Metal: ”
Hey there, Hellbound readers! We are a little behind in playlists, Sean has been too busy with work related things to update everything as much as he should, so here are two weeks worth of playlists.”
Give a listen to Primeval Tryants Prevails, the new album by Sweden’s Hypertension
In 1996, Hellbound’s Sean Palmerston was offered the chance to do the first ever in-person North American radio interview with Quorthon, leader and visionary behind legendary Swedish black metal act Bathory. They also went out for dinner together beforehand, and here are Sean’s memories of that fateful night some seventeen years ago, shared in public for the first time since.
Hellbound’s third preview of this month’s Noctis Fest in Calgary AB is a Q & A with ANCIIENTS guitarist Chris Dyck, as interrogated by Kyle Harcott
Western Canadian metal owes a lot to Terese Fleming. As the organizer of the Noctis festival, she has put our region on the map as far as heavy metal culture goes. Incredibly supportive of her local and regional scene, Terese has been putting on shows, from tiny community halls to the now multi-day Noctis extravaganza for years. I spoke to her over the phone to find out some history of her involvement with Noctis, what bands she’s into, and whether us attendees will really be eating bowls of ball bearings at the Noctis Metal Breakfast.
Interview by Kyle Harcott
To celebrate Canada’s birthday today we has asked all the Hellbound contributors what their favourite Canadian metal songs of all time were and to write a paragraph or two why. Here is what they told us, along with youtube links to all the songs in question so you can enjoy them too.
HAPPY CANADA DAY TO ALL!
