Silverstein formed in Burlington, Ontario, on the outskirts of Toronto in 2000.  Emerging from the thriving hardcore scene of their hometown, the band began honing their sound, and recording whenever possible. Two EPs followed and a former member of Grade began talking the band up to his friends at Victory Records. The band signed with Victory shortly afterward.




Describing the soundscapes found in Enditol’ music as ‘Chaos Metal’, Sacha draws from a vast plethora of influences and inspirations, while remaining firmly rooted in Metal.  I really dig this stuff.  Check it out here.

Analysis of Bison Kills

Analysis of Bison Kills are the band formerly known as Tear Gas and Plate Glass. Formed in 2001, the core duo of brothers Matthew and Nathan Dick released their debut self titled demo to positive reviews in the underground metal press. Backed by a drum machine, the two piece carved out oppressive slabs of sludge doom in the vein of British greats such as Electric Wizard, Iron Monkey and Godflesh.

Television Personalities

Television Personalities


I had the pleasure of corresponding with one of my favourite artists recently.  Television Personalities are quite possibly the finest cult band in the UK. Since forming in 1977, they have released an endless assortment of records involving numerous changes in personnel centred around songwriter Dan Treacy.

As a youngster, I worshipped 60's bands of all sorts esp. Pop-Art freakbeat bands like the Action, the Creation, the Birds etc. Considering the garbage AOR and disco that dominated the airwaves in the mid 70's, there was really not many options.

When I found the first TVP's record, I felt like I had found a band of Kindred spirits that had the same tastes as I did. The first record sounded like Syd Barrett-Era Floyd and Maximum R&B era Who to my young ears. I followed the band for years.

After a lengthy hiatus, the TVP's returned in 2004. The Band has been revived and includes founding members Dan Treacy and Ed Ball.

You might be surprised just how many large artists list the Dan and TVP's as influences. You can purchase the new the record here at Elefant Records.
