The Shanks

THE SHANKS Founded in 2005 on a farm in Mono, Ontario, Canada. The Shanks are a
blistering rock duo comprised of bass and drums. A combination of 1970s album-oriented rock and protopunk, the Shanks belt-out melodic chordal arrangements amidst a sea of low end and pounding rhythms. It’s haunting, tribal arena-rock played on a basement floor. The Shanks have been touring steadily across much of Canada and the U.S. performing at multiple festivals including NXNE. In 2012 and 2013, the band embarked on European tours, first in support of their 3-song 7” EP "Feel The Holes", released Fall 2012 on Mono Butcherboys Records/Fading Ways Music (UK) and distributed by Broken Silence Records (Hamburg), and again this past Fall, 2013. The Shanks will be on tour in the U.S. and Canada in continued support of "Surfing The Lexicon" as the album becomes available through wider distribution this Fall.

Depravation are blackened hardcore band from Germany. the band have got a new split tape with Slowly We Rot from Belgium out now & it was released on tape by Dark Omen Records (GER) and Skin & Bones Records (UK). It’s available in three different colors and limited to 100 pieces in total. "Depravation was founded in December 2011. In March 2012 we’ve released our demo-tape “I:PRAEDICTVM”, followed by our first LP "II:MALEDICTVM" in July 2013. Since then we've played a bunch of shows. In April 2014 our drummer moved to Hamburg and had to leave the band. We've recorded the song "With Dead Eyes To See" with our new drummer in June. I guess it's fair to say that our new music has a different vibe, compared to our older tracks. But I'll let you be the judge of this..." Slowly We Rot is the follow up band for Niels after Worms Feed. Founded in late 2013, the 3-piece delivers evil and filth soaked sonic terror in the form of metallic hardcore. The two tracks on this split are their first recordings. Keep your eyes open for these young guns, as there is way more good stuff to be coming from them in the future.
