This Month in Metal: October 2017

Sunday 22nd, October 2017 / 19:09
By Sarah Kitteringham  

CALGARY – BeatRoute’s pages are filled to the brim with heavy bands this month. Be sure to peruse the RockPile and Edmonton Extra section to get the full scoop on what’s going down in October!  

As for everything else…  

Friday, October 6 is utterly stacked for new releases. There is the new album by epic doomsters Spirit Adrift called Curse of Conception. The Black Dahlia Murder will release Nightbringers (and will perform in Calgary this October alongside Necrot, who we featured in this section) and virulent sludge metallers Primitive Man will release Caustic. Head to your favourite local record store and spend some money!  

Head to Distortion in Calgary on Saturday, October 7 to enjoy the spaced out grooves of HasteroidBuffalo Bud BusterRawBazaraba, and Pelican Death Squad.  Bring yer buds, the show will be made better with ‘em! If you’re in Edmonton that eve, head to the Mercury Room for a black metal gig starring IdolatryVile Insignia, and Traer. Don’t forget to done your corpse paint.  

On Wednesday, October 11, Mexican death metal act Evilheart will be performing with Stab.twist.pull and Moosifix at Dickens in Calgary. Now fronted by Adam ‘Greasy’ Benito, the vocalist for Calgary act Train Bigger Monkeys, Evilheart will also be performing at Rendezvous on October 13 (Edmonton), Munnin’s Post on October 14 (Kelowna), and The Astoria on October 15 (Vancouver).
Canadian metal icon THOR will be performing with Tarantuja at the Starlite Room in Edmonton on Friday, October 13. Be sure to head out to see his rippling pectorals, sick fashion sense, and enjoy him bringing thunder on the tundra. LET THE BLOOD RUN RED!  

On Friday, October 13, a bunch more kick ass albums are coming out. Check out trad metallers Savage Master, who are releasing their brand new EP Creature of the Flames. Meanwhile, grindy death metallers Exhumed will unleash their eighth studio album Death Revenge. 

This isn’t metal, but that’s irrelevant. Legendary Scottish alt-rockers The Jesus And Mary Chain are performing at MacEwan Ballroom on Saturday, October 28 (Calgary) and at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium on Sunday, October 29.  Dig the cold production, mountainous snare hits, and reverberating vocals your favourite bands use? THEY PROBABY DIG THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN. REPEAT AFTER ME: I WILL GO SEE THE JESUS AND MARY CHAIN.  

Running out of words, so make sure you find your own damn Halloween plans, and be sure to find a sober buddy to drive you around, ya meatheads!  


CAPTION: Evilheart perform at Dickens in Calgary on October 11.
