     Celestial Machine - the very name evokes contrasting images. Formed in 2009 in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, the original line-up of Celestial Machine had a fairly clear vision: to move away from their death metal routes and establish a more melodic, but equally heavy sound. This original line-up recorded and released the band's first album, 'Stagmata' in 2011, showcasing a sludgy, guitar driven sound.

       Noir is a progressive black metal band for fans of “Dissection, Opeth, Emperor and Enslaved”. They are mid tempo and the music is very dark and dynamic with heavy use of melody, harmony. Both guitars work together in tandem complimenting each other which creates a very rich sounding, musical texture. The bass connects the main melody to the drums, while keeping its identity, which are committed to the natural rhythms laid out by the guitars. The vocals are clear and audible but still gritty enough to deliver the lightless subject matter. 
Overall Noir believes in musical unity.
There are moments of beauty, sorrow, somberness and brutality which allows the audience to truly make a connection with the band.

Shooting Guns 

     Recently recognized on the Polaris Music Prize Long List, Shooting Guns are hard at work fortifying the heavy end of the psychedelic spectrum. Hailing from Saskatoon, SK, they haunt the foggy moor between Sabbath-styled doom riffery and heavy pulse-riding kraut-rock.  Centered around elephantine riffs, these delay-soaked songs rumble and hiss with analog synth-conjured monstrosities which surge to devour frequency ranges beyond the upper and lower ranges available to even the heaviest doom outfits.  Their spectacle is rapidly attracting a gender balanced cult of barbarian metal-heads, indie hipsters, Neanderthals, nerds, and the well-dressed ladies who scare them.


     Singularity, the brainchild of Jared McRorie, is a Melodic Death Metal band from Saskatoon, SK.  The band primarily draws influences from European bands such as Iron Maiden, Wintersun, Ensiferum, Kalmah, In Flames, and Amon Amarth, among others.  The band focuses on complex leads, sweeps and harmonies, vocals reminiscent of bands like Skeletonwitch, and unorthodox drum patterns.
