CALGARY – February and early March have a lot to offer – so much so that we could barely fit in half of what we wanted into this section. So let’s go!  

As covered in our January edition, doom lords Conan will perform at Palomino with the Weir. The band will also perform in Edmonton on Saturday, February 10 alongside The Weir, Culled, and more. That same evening in Calgary, Round 3 of the Wacken Metal Battle goes down on February 10 at Distortion with Accostal, Heyoka’s Mirror, Red Cain, To The Mountains, and World Class White Trash battling for the last slot in the Calgary final.   

On Saturday, February 17, head to Rendezvous Pub in Edmonton for Winnipeg’s own Ossific and Cell. The two bands will be playing alongside Erebos and new act Everythingyoueverloved, the latter is making their live debut.  

Calgary’s own WAKE are releasing their fourth studio album ‘Misery Rites’ on February 23 via Translation Loss Records. Although we are huge fans of the project, we’ll be waiting for their upcoming March tour with Withered to discuss the new record. In the meantime, we encourage everyone to go order the splatter colour variant and get familiarized with the crusty grindcore album so you can shout the lyrics back at the band when they play Calgary and Edmonton.  

Iced Earth will perform on Friday, March 3 at the Starlite Room in Edmonton and on Saturday, March 3 at the Marquee Beer Market & Stage in Calgary. Two days later on March 5, Max Cavalera of Sepultura, Soulfly, and Cavalera Conspiracy fame will be fulfilling his early 2017 promise to play a set as his shockingly strong industrial metal sideproject Nailbomb. They’ll be performing all of the disarmingly sociopolitical statement ‘Pointblank’ an album that merges industrial metal with hardcore to shockingly strong results. The band will be performing at Dickens in Calgary alongside Today is the Day, Lody Kong, and Uncured.
