Metal Review: Intervals - Epiphany (Official Music Video): make Time to check this out!

   In the wake of the release of their latest EP last October, "In Time", the all instrumental progressive metal band Intervals has just released a new music video for the song "Epiphany". The Heavy Metal Sasquatch absolutely loved "In Time", and is very excited to see one of its songs transformed into a music video. While the music video is very simple, featuring shots of the band playing mixed with colourful images of neurons and other complex patterns, it is still extremely badass. The song Epiphany is a masterpiece, delivering beautiful melodies as well as hard hitting riffs. And the music video provides a suitable counterpart to the song not focusing to much on the video itself and letting the listener enjoy the music Intervals plays. Check out the music video for Epiphany below and make sure to check out Intervals on Facebook @! You can check out Intervals LIVE during the month of May on their Canadian Tour with Texas in July, Northlane, and Structures. More into available on their Facebook page!

- The music video for Epiphany is simple, but it does a very nice job of showcasing the song. The visuals throughout the video were enjoyable and suited the music very well. Overall a wicked music video

Structures, Texas in July, Northlane, & Intervals Canadian Tour! (May 3 - 25, 2013)

This is a re-post of my very first post, but it needs to be brought to your immediate attention! The month of May initiates the start of a month long Canadian tour for metal Structures, Texas in July, Northlane, & Intervals. The tour kicks off May 3rd in Halifax and ends May 25th in Vancouver. Having seen Intervals once already this year, I was already hooked; but the other three bands are the icing on the metal cake. All 4 of these bands are absolutely wicked, providing heart-stopping metal from the progressive metal, djent, and metalcore ends of the spectrum. All these bands are on the rise and I predict these sorts of small shows might be a rare occurrence soon, so make sure to get out and see these guys up close and personal! This show is going to be unbelievable and the Heavy Metal Sasquatch is itching to get in the pit!

New Metal Review: Meshuggah - I am Colossus (Official Music Video): Horrifically Brilliant!

   The Heavy Metal Sasquatch is very excited to announce the release of the official music video for I Am Colossus by the Swedish metal gods Meshuggah. From the moment the video starts you have a feel for what is to come; an animated, wicked and creepy glance into a twisted world of religion, modernity, and extreme horror. This video showcases tremendous imagery, seemingly showcasing the worst parts of humanity and then winding it all up into one sentient being in conclusion. So turn out the lights and check the video out below! 

-I am Colossus is a wicked song from start to finish. It's not only heavy as all hell, it is also extremely artistic; leaving their images and riffs stuck in your head. Meshuggah never ceases to disappoint!

Progressive Metal Review: Sirens - Drone: Amazing!

     The Heavy Metal Sasquatch has recently fallen down the Progressive Metal rabbit hole. In my decent I have come across Sirens, a band that combines djent and technical death metal with an electronic and ambient fusion. The finished product is a deadly combination of heart pounding intensity and trance inducing slow melodies, all with a clear electronic undertone. Sirens reminds me of Between the Buried and Me; providing both mosh pits and out-of-body experiences at the same time. The thing I love in particular about Sirens is their ability to deliver intense metal riffs combined with serious electronica bass in their music; with their EP "Spore" having many Dub step style bass progressions throughout. Sirens recently released their new single "Drone" from their new unreleased album of the same title. Give it a listen here, and check Sirens out for yourself.

- Check them out on facebook @ and @ for a free download of their EP - Spore or check them out live for shows on the 2013 Vans Warped Tour!

-Overall I am extremely impressed with Sirens ability to transcend multiple musical genres while never straying to far from perfectly executed heavy metal. I feel like Sirens is doing something different in the metal world, providing a fresh metal experience. I highly recommend you give this band your support.
