What's up all you metal maniacs. I wanna see our metal community come together here. This will be a good opportunity to share contacts, organize shows and share new material for current bands as well as give newer players (and currently band-less players) the opportunity to find other people to jam with. This is a great spot to come up with new ideas to improve this already very talented scene. ALL SUB GENRE'S OF METAL ARE WELCOME. If it's heavy then it's metal in the eyes of this group. Also be sure to invite your friends who are players (or even if they aren't players). The more the merrier.

THE RETURN OF FETUS FEAST! /wsg CUFF and IRIHIS

For just over 20 years, our quiet little Southern Ontario city, situated along the Quebec City–Windsor Corridor, has made its very own dent on the world stage of death metal. From those early days, which produced home-grown, first-generation talent such as Flesh Feast, Porno, Summertime Daisies, and Blood Of Christ, London has refused to let the spirit of brutality die... death metal is stronger than ever in the Forest City!

With hellfire in hand - proudly brandishing the inhuman torch of second-generation, London, Ontario death metal - we are proud to welcome back the guttural two-some that is FETUS FEAST!!!! For those who don't know, the band features members from both Ataxia and Trilateral.

Joining us in welcoming back our friends in Fetus are two of Toronto's heaviest, old-school-sounding death metal acts. Let us introduce...

IRIHIS: Don't let their lack of years on this planet fool you, as they more than make up for it in sheer ferociousness of death metal craftsmanship. With a sound not unlike early Deicide, Suffocation, and Dying Fetus, prepare to be time-warped back to the early 90s.

CUFF: Smack dab in the middle of this tasty death metal sam'ich, this brutal two-some are self-professed practitioners of 'Sci-fi Slam Grind'. Not easy to describe with mere words, we encourage you to visit their page and listen to their latest slab of death metal insanity, entitled Transient Suffering Through the Ergosphere.

Rock 'n' Roll Rent Party With The Mongrels and their Guests

Rock'n'Roll Rent Party happens the first Sunday of every month at APK in downtown London Ontario. It's an afternoon/early evening event running from 3 till 7PM which gives you plenty of time to recover for your return to the salt mines on monday.

The event will feature local pub rock combo The Mongrels as the resident band, and each month there will be another band joining them. 

There is no cover, it's a pass the hat around to help pay the bands and there might be some surprises as every Rock'n'Roll Rent Party so far, has had some.

The event will be MC'd by Whatwave Dave of CHRW's Radio What Wave, heard every Thursday at 6PM.

So get your dancing shoes shined up and come on down for all the action at APK.


And as always, The Mongrels will be playing 2 sets of rock'n'rol.

Here's some video of The Mongrels:

R.ariel released two albums in 2014, 'Life is Accepting You,' and 'Histories.' She was picked as best new artist of the year by Brian Eno and Thris Tian for Noise Fest in the UK.

She was mentioned in Sargents House playlist as music they are listening to now in March of 2015. She toured for 3 months in the USA with Thanksgiving (Marriage Records, K records) in 2014 and is now on the longest tour she has ever attempted to complete, a 4 month solo tour in the USA/Canada.

She is now finished with her new LP "Changer."

DOOM SQUAD D$4L CANADIAN TOUR STOP LONDON

West coast Edmonton Hip Hop sensation is touring Canada and London is on the bill
Brought to you by Nathan TempoMental Aitken and James D music 
Featuring Performances By Sharky - O Beast -M.O. Littles -Street Scape Records - James D - TempoMental

with John EP on the ones and twos!

May 10th London @ APK doors open 9pm 10$ cover


Doom Squad is a Hip Hop group from Edmonton, AB consisting of 3 artists; Kryple, NineLivez & Trippz

The group has been together since the end of 2010 and has already gained a huge fan base across Canada & the rest of the world. They have opened for almost every big Hip Hop artist that has come to Edmonton in the last 4 years, and have performed well over 150 shows across Canada, and numerous reputable music festivals.

Doom Squad has released 3 projects as a group so far, the first being a mixtape titled ‘Countdown To Doomsday’ in December of 2013. Just a little over a year later they released their first album titled ‘The Proper Project’ in January of 2014 with the release of their single & video Captain Chronic. 

In February of 2014 Doom Squad started their ‘Monthly Cyphers’ which is a cypher style music video that features a different Edmonton hip hop artist every month. On Christmas Day 2014 they released another mixtape titled “The Monthly Cypher Mixtape” consisting the audio of every cypher released in 2014 and is available for free online. 

Currently the Squad is working on 3 separate solo projects that are all set to be released in the Spring of 2015 to coincide with their ‘D$4L Tour’ as well as the ‘Countdown To Doomsday 2’ mixtape which is set to be released in the Fall. 

Kryple, NineLivez & Trippz are all also established solo artists and have all competed on the KOTD stage in the battle rap format. With their high energy stage performance, clean & passionate sound, and machine like work ethic, Doom Squad has only good things in their future and will likely be one of the top names in Canadian hip hop, if not the world very soon.

Summering + Fighter / Lover

Summering (Vancouver)
post-rock / psyche / ambient
https://forsummering.bandcamp.com/releases

Fighter/Lover (Toronto) 
synth / pop / experimental / rock 
https://fighterlover.bandcamp.com/

Summering is an amalgam of psychedelic and post-rock influences, whose unusual combination of poetic folk-inspired vocals, and tightly-wound yet gradually unravelling heavy rock instrumentals, have quickly won them a place in their local musical community of Vancouver, British Columbia.
Fronted by singer-songwriter Paul Stewart and his wholly unique crystalline vocal delivery, their complicated and mesmerizing instrumental combinations afford a wealth of possibilities, and each track unwinds slowly behind Stewart's haunting voice like a menacing weight. 
Summering fill their songs not with shoegaze-inspired effects processes but rather with alternating soft-spoken poetry and utterly heavy rock riffs. With the collected experience of the entire west face of Canada, Summering come on like art-rock for prairie folk or a heavier instrumental collective for the Pacific Northwest.

$8 / 19+ / 9pm

The Velveteins / Freight Train/ Radio Caroline

Edmonton AB rock and roll group The Velveteins
Addison Hiller
a.hiller@hotmail.com
Bio - "The Velveteins are a rock n' roll group from sunny Edmonton, Alberta. Their music first rose to public attention after the release of their second EP 'Fresh Claws'. Graham White of Geyser Music called it "one of the most impressive albums of 2014, enjoyable from beginning to end, nostalgically fresh with a sound that defies the musical status quo." Following the albums release the band received a nomination for the 'Rising Star' award at the 2014 Edmonton Music Awards and embarked on a Western Canadian tour. In November The Velveteins flew to Nashville to record their new album with producer Lincoln Parish of Cage the Elephant. The album is currently in the final stages of mixing and is set for release in spring of 2015 on Weiner Records, followed by a full Canadian tour which includes a date at this years Canadian Music Week in Toronto."

MY HOLLOW / INSURRECTION / MATTER IN THE MEDIUM / MUTUAL EXECUTION

MY HOLLOW / INSURRECTION / MATTER IN THE MEDIUM / MUTUAL EXECUTION
9PM / 19+ / 

Alright, we'll admit, this ain't no Bolt Thrower; but each and every one of these brutal-as-fuk bands are gonna give those limey bastards a run for their hard-earned money! No doubt!

First up, we have a band that needs no introduction, as they are the only one of their kind in Southern Ontario dealin this shit - the mighty MUTUAL-FUCKING-EXECUTION!!!! We can't think of a better way to start the night than a heaping does of thrash metal mayhem!!!!! Our boys will be hittin the stage around 10... best to get there early and get a couple into ya before the assault!

Next up is the return of London veterans, MATTER IN THE MEDIUM. We've been talking to these guys for months about their come-back show, and we feel there is no better welcome back for the boys than this night of progressive death groove! It should also be mentioned that the band features none other than Goran Mamika of London's own NIHILITY and TORTURED SAINT!

If that ain't enough, we have the co-headlining tandem of Quebec's INSURRECTION and Toronto's MY HOLLOW. Honestly, there is no better pairing - with both bands destroying with their very own brand of the metalz of death... let the APK pit roar!!!!!



My Hollow
(Toronto Progressive Groove Metal)

Insurrection
(Gatineau Death Metal-ers Return!)

The "Beginning" tour Oz Goode w/The Mongrels / Joani Paige

The roots of OzGoode lie in the creative partnership of co-founders Phillips and Joseph Pittari. They first met in film school in 1998 and have since worked closely together for the past fifteen years, in both Los Angeles and Toronto. While collaborating on making the film Breathe, they pooled their musical talents to create its soundtrack. Joseph recalls that, upon discovering that its songs were finding a welcoming audience in Europe and the U.S., “we quickly moved from writing to actually performing. Once that took root, there was no stopping us, and we wanted to record and play our music full time.”

The dynamic duo's music has earned international exposure in a wide range of settings. Phillips wrote the soundtrack for the acclaimed feature film Good People Bad Things, a movie he also wrote, directed and produced and that sold to over 20 countries. One of its songs, "Missing You," was recorded by Canadian songstress Ambre McLean, becoming an AC Top 40 chart hit.
 

The band was then fully rounded out in early 2015 with the addition of Vanessa Huneault.

Sweet and Lowdown serves the indie rock koolaid.

Chico Dusty is a Hamilton blues rock band that has gained a large following in Hamilton and has been playing successful shows in Kitchener, Waterloo, Burlington and Toronto.
The most trusty Chico Dusty
Chico Dusty's interpretation of rock and roll was birthed in an attic with the help of whiskey, cowboy movies, and the occasional wrestling match.Listening to Chico Dusty is kind of like waking up 45 minutes before your alarm, going back to sleep, then having a dream that you've been selected to be the lotion boy on the Miss Hawaiian Tropic Tour bus. Young to the rock game, the boys from Chico D are on the upside.
