WHO ever you are , and WHERE ever you are, say ONLY these 5 words to police if taken into custody -
Remember these five words.
This will save you in many cases.
You can be held for what seems like days and possibly be (physically and mentally) abused by the cops, but DO NOT SPEAK TO THEM other than,
even if they stop at your door and ask questions, DO NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS,
The police have stolen from my personal belongings in the past and I wonder if those items will appear in a future crime scene!

Schizoid (Newfoundland) - 1980s hardcore/crossover

Originally posted December 10th,2011

Hardcore Punk Thrash / Crossover

After posting http://torontothrash.blogspot.ca/2014/03/remember-schizoid.html , I remember I thought I had downloaded their stuff before, and now found it again.

Thanks to http://www.mocm.ca/Music/Title.aspx?TitleId=299593 for posting some info,
I grabbed the images of the record from there.

I used to own a copy of the 7" vinyl, but it was printed/photocopied on orange paper, not yellow.
Probably was a second or third pressing I had  bought at The Record Peddler?

Thanks to the original ripper/uploader. Found this years ago on a punk forum.

They called this an EP, but this is really short, so I call it a single.
The band is from the Toronto, Ontario, Canada area.

Note: Sadzak a couple years ago was working on new material, but I never heard any more info as to which genre of metal it would be, if it was his thrash roots or in the Inner Thought style.

Haggath - demo + rehearsal


haggath, d.o.g. (death of god) flyer january 1986 flyer .
I don't know if this gig happened still, or was moved to the Quoc-Te club.
Forgot the exact date of the live tape I had

Deathcore zine No.2 (1986) by Glenn Salter (guitarist from D.O.G.)

EXODUS at Larry's in 1985,
with Metallic Assault zine editors -
Glenn Salter (top middle, above Paul Baloff))  and, Derek Emerson (top right, over Gary Holt).

Photo credit: probably Rita Laberto of Photo-drome fame

get Photo Drome Issue #2 as a pdf download here - http://equalizingxdistort.blogspot.ca/1988/06/photo-drome-2.html

I really wish I had the live gig from that dumpy tiny bar the Quoc-Te (it was managed by a little Vietnamese man who screamed at you for your ID), because as Derek Emerson from Metallic Assault zine/More Stupid Initials said, "Haggath were amazing like NYC Mayhem. They would play a fast song, then every song after just kept getting faster and faster!"
If you like speedcore like early D.R.I. and NYC Mayhem, and Lethal Aggression,
then this is right up your alley buddy!

Unfortunately, they changed the band name to Visible Minority around 1988, and still did some Haggath, but the last I heard from one member over the phone when I wanted an interview back then, he said, -
"Why are you bothering ? We don't play like that anymore.We want to sound like R.E.M. instead or something."
Yes, I felt pretty deflated when I heard that.
Then it made sense when I heard they would play shows with their backs to the audience, as they felt nobody cared what they sounded like anymore...
and so...

...now the quest goes from Etobicoke's fastest band to the elusive Brampton speed-of -light core band DISTORTION who's singer Steve had super long hair,and he was mistaken for Cousin It off the Adams Family, and the singer from Epileptic Brain Surgeons said they had the ultimate fastest song of all time called "Ball of Light".

But until or IF I ever get a copy, in the meantime blast loud this January 1986 rehearsal demo recorded off the mixing board.

ripped, and originally uploaded by SonicBludgeon
was reminded of this band after someone recently uploaded the demo tape over at  http://heavymetalrarities.com/forum/
so I brought this old post from 2009-09-13 back out of "draft" status as they have new links.
Like I said originally,
I USED to have a live tape from the Quoc Te club (in the Kensingtin Market area) (January 1986) that I got in a trade off Dave Busch, but that's disappeared since the early 1990s, and I am not in contact with him.

HAGGATH live was pretty much exactly like the rehearsal tape for speed and intensity, but they also did some cover songs, like by S.O.D. and NYC Mayhem I think (who were pretty much the ultimate bands in crossover metal back then).

Durva (Ex - Durvasag)

Just searched a bit and learned one of my fave bands, has changed / lost members again, and changed their band name too !

Toronto, Ontario

Durva (Ex. Durvasag) is a Toronto-based band. We have been through many changes and still expect and want to further advance and innovate our sound. We've gone from the "metal" only, everyone else is a poser but us, and we know what's best mentality; to a open, welcoming, and mature way of perceiving those pleasing sound waves, known as music.

Well, I don't know what this means...
go listen/download/buy the old releases
 here - http://durvasag.bandcamp.com/

You heard ? MEGIDDO (from Canada) might visit Europe in 2014 to blanket it with black death !! ...ooh ! ...Hey !... Ay !

 Fredrik Lindgren @ Blackened Media & Promotion


Since it would be nice if I uploaded and shared some of their music releases to get you ready for them,
I won't do that! because they are mean!!..and play mean metal! and I can be just as angry faced !

so go look for it on eBay or in Distro's

or not, and save your money to buy some Megiddo shirts or tapes..make sure you give them as Christmas presents to your baby brothers and sisters...or  just give your money to the band..they know how to spend it better than you do...

Original EXCITER Lineup Reunites

(From Left to Right):
Bass - Allan Johnson
Drums/Lead Vocals - Dan Beehler
Guitar - John Ricci


Original EXCITER Lineup Reunites

April 10, 2014

Guitarist John Ricci of Canadian thrash metal pioneers EXCITER has released the following statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:

"Great news to all EXCITER fans worldwide: myself and original [EXCITER] members Dan Beehler [drums, vocals] and Allan Johnson [bass] have officially reunited! We intend [on] performing our bone-crushing, neck-snapping speed metal in as many countries that will have us!

"To celebrate our long-anticipated reunion, our first confirmed gig will be at the Keep It True festival in Lauda-Konigshofen, Germany, April 24, 2015. We hope to see you there! Our performance will consist of all the classics that established EXCITER as one of the pioneers of speed and thrash. New material and a new release will eventually follow.

"I also want to comment on my so-called 'retirement' which was posted on various sites on February 24 by the former EXCITER members. I just want to say I never said I was going to retire. In my opinion, this retirement announcement was fabricated exaggeration. What I did say is that 'I need a break from music' due to some rebellious behaviour from one of the musicians in the band. So, at this point, all that B.S. is behind me and I am now focusing on delivering some new ear-splitting, brain-rattling METAL with Dan and Allan!

"I want to thank all the loyal and dedicated fans and music industry individuals that contacted me during this false retirement statement and offering their support and a positive outcome to a situation that was non-repairable.

"Hope to see you soon with 'horns high and fists in the air!'"

The original EXCITER lineup recorded three classic albums in the 1980s — "Heavy Metal Maniac" (1983), "Violence & Force" (1984) and "Long Live the Loud" (1985) — before Ricci left he group and was replaced by Brian McPhee.

EXCITER's latest album, "Death Machine", which featured Ricci as the sole remaining original member, was released on October 29, 2010 via Massacre Records.


right on !
Going to pull out and blast their albums and bootleg concerts today!

download link bit.ly/1fYxGa0

EP will be released on CD(May) and on 7" in couple of mounths

Hope you enjoy it, and we were be glad if you share with it

Deszcz crew
Not sure I want to post this, as I don't want only the politically correct-type bands writing in.
But what the hell.... it is a free download after all, from hardcore band Deszcz  (translated from Polish to English, it means "rain", or "(rain) shower").
Musically, lots of you into screamo HC or black metal from the late 1990s to 2000's will enjoy the dissonant guitar chords.

What puzzles me is, they say this will be on a 7 inch record. 
From what I remember, a lot of the 7" EP's I bought in the 1980s, usually could only hold about 12 minutes total of music at 33 rpm.

Spewgore (Can) - Faceplant.... did you buy it? did you at least search for a free download !?

Spewgore (Can) - Faceplant [Full-length](released November 29th, 2013)
Artwork by Felix Laflamme.
Logo and layout by Hugues Laflamme.
Compact Disc (CD)
Includes immediate download of 13-track album in the high-quality format of your choice (MP3, FLAC, and more), plus unlimited mobile access using the free Bandcamp listening app.
ships out within 2 days
$10 CAD
(can't remember if postage/shipping included. Probably is. 
You can always message them. Steve the guitarist is usually good for responding within a day or two).

I never said a word about this after I got a copy, did I? My fault, as I haven't been playing it too often either, as there is always another new thing to listen to every single day.
Ok, so,
it is in a shiny CD jewel case, has nice photos when you fold open the CD cover,
and the band have not changed their sound or style.
If anything, sounds like they are close again to the sound of their classic Chipped Teeth Broken Fingers album.

They have a show coming up in the Etobicoke / Mississauga area in a couple months.

(Photo by.-Matt Neuman-Phrozen Photography)

Every week, I get a bunch of emails from Jon Asher - Music Publicist  promoting a lot of bands.
A lot of the time I don't care, as it isn't metal I would ever pay money for, but this photo impressed me.
I cracked up as it is really brilliant.
This says so much in one shot, because it is true.
Metalheads, buy/read a LOT, especially when younger I think. We can get pretty crazy and obsessed with certain topics just as much as with certain bands.
I know I did, and I used to devour everything that interested me.
Started off with science fiction/fanstasy, then horror, plus ancient history, the occult, religions, philosophy and all the while, maintaining a gigantic interest in music.

Besides fanzines and magazines, pretty sure I read every book on music history of the 20th century in my school library and local public library, which got me to check out other genres outside of rock and metal, like soul and blues (eg. James Brown, Muddy Waters).
I quickly learned that there is a reason why The Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin were immensely popular and not the "originals" ha ha ha....they were BORING !)

back to this band I never heard of before
Have a listen, and you can buy music files from
Pretty good heavy metal, has some prog and death metal influences.
Excellent singing, Bryan Baker has his own style.
Besides the Tribue album, they have an older one from 2012 ("Elder Lore / The Dark Arts") that IS also for sale (and on a physical format, CD).

Thanks to Salva Rubio, vocalist from band The YTriple Corporation (Spain) and author of the book “Extreme Metal” for writing to us and giving us this link to their free music.

Deathy vocals. Raspy. Because it has a futuristic aesthetic, the production, the guitarwork, and the way the vocals are sung, I am reminded of other great yet unrelated bands from the past,  like D.B.C. (Dead Brain Cells), Voi Vod,  Carcass ("Heartwork" LP), and Swedish melodic death metal like At The Gates

Unscarred (Paris,France) - Fake Democracy Demo (2012) free download

Female singer (YES! a singer!) fronting this thrash metal band.
Got this sent to me awhile ago (November 2013), but I forgot about posting it.
She is a Persian with a great heavy voice.
Has the roughness and harshness of HOLY MOSES' Sabina Classen , and of ACID's Kate De Lombaert, with just a touch of smooth wailing in the Dio-style (eg. SINERGY, HUNTRESS (Usa)

The band is still active, playing concerts, from what I see on their facebook page -

Unscarred Press Release:
Fronted by Nelly the mysterious Persian metal princess Unscarred are a new brand of thrash metal. Pushing a hard hitting and unforgiving sound up to eleven Unscarred are making some serious waves in the Paris scene. Critics say "This is a band who bring something NEW to an overcrowded genre that has stagnated for too long. Suffice to say, Unscarred is one of the best bands on the French scene right now.''

The Worshyp (Toronto)(2014) ''6 pack of Metal'' (free, or, pay what you want download)

A friend from Australia one or two years ago told me about this Toronto band and their fans who have a facebook group page.

Was reminded of them by this blogspot's post-

Here is a download you can get for free , OR, you can give them some money for....

For fans of :

Iron Maiden (Di'anno era),
Metallica (Kill'Em All),
Megadeth (Rust In Peace),
Black Sabbath (the faster riffy tunes with Ozzy).


Circle of Ghosts - Prelude [EP] (2012) free download

Depressive black metal from Toronto,  similar to Xasthur, Striborg, and Leviathan.

I discovered it today as I was looking at the Funereal Moon / Circle of Ghosts "From Darkness They Are" split CD for sale online, and was curious who they were.
 (I already know Funereal Moon as I own a few CD and cassette releases I bought from Skullfuckingmetal Distro and other places).


There are a few more Circle of Ghosts releases available to listen to on bandcamp, but no download links.

NOT a problem if for example
you use Mozilla Firefox, you can click the Tools option at the top left of the browser and search for an Add-on that allows you to grab (download) any mp3/audio files


Here is another band related to the above

Void of Reveries

Labelled as "post-black metal", which is sort of a Nyquil slow drone, similar to the Britpop shoegaze bands of the late 1980s/early 1990s.
The most famous of these type of black metal bands is ALCEST, whose latest album is moving away from this style.

ACCURSED SPAWN (Ottawa, Ontario, death metal)

free download single from upcoming ACCURSED SPAWN (Can) - 'Putrid' EP (2014) (Ottawa, Ontario death metal)



Formed in 2010, Accursed Spawn is a band hell bent on delivering speed, technicality, and raw aggression. Drawing inspiration from the darkest corners of extreme music, it is a band that fully intend to rip your throat out and gouge your eyes with their vulgar, deranged music.

PEARS, a new hardcore punk band based in gritty old New Orleans LA

Got another band (NOT from southern Ontario, not even from Canada !), looking for a mention.

I took a quick listen and it's decent punk. Maybe the silly video grabbed my interest.
More pop punk, than hardcore, but some of it (like the song "Forever Sad", from the 2014 demo, reminds me of the old band STARS AND STRIPES (the side band / joke band(?) of Choke from Slapshot).

Sacrifice (Can) 11-21-2009 live in Toronto xvid avi

Here's a very poor, very crappy filmed bootleg video, from the second Sacrifice hometown reunion show at The Opera House.
Very grainy, many spots where the screen is black due to being pointed at the floor or ceiling.

Sacrifice 2009 The Great Wall- Tetragrammaton...Toronto 2009 [HQ]

Too bad that this concert was not released with the 2006 Reunion Concert Double DVD that finally got released by Marquee Records.
Excellent quality, better sound and picture than the old bootlegs from the 1980s,
but, the intensity and rage is not as vicious anymore.
Still, it is a decent release.
