Population II

**All shows 21+—valid ID required** Doors: 6:30 PM Show: 7:00 PMPOPULATION IIPopulation II is a band dedicated to its disengagement, constantly working on refining their imposing, yet unpretentious sound. Masters at both improvised madness and sophisticated composition, Population II delivers a heavy psychedelic rock infused with feverish funk rhythms, a touch of jazz philosophy, an energy reminiscent of punk’s early days, and a love of minor scales that harkens back to the roots of heavy metal. The band’s uniqueness is reinforced by Pierre-Luc’s one of a kind voice and his introspective, nostalgic and offbeat lyrics. Their sources of inspiration are diverse and not limited to music: the Detroit garage rock and psychedelic funk scenes of the late 60s, the Canterbury scene of the same period, the German experimental rock of the 70s and Miles Davis’ eclectic era collide, bound together by the swampy decor of Pointe-Calumet, and the deep friendship and undeniable chemistry of the three musicians. The roots of Population II go back a long way, and are inextricably linked to the members’ teenage memories. After years of jamming to the point of developing a sense of telepathy, the trio began recording a handful of releases that soon caught the attention of John Dwyer, leader of the American band Osees, and the man behind the independent label Castle Face Records. Thus was born À la ô Terre, their first label-released album, which came out in 2020. The band spent the next two years playing shows in Canada and the United States, notably performing at SXSW (Austin, Texas) and Pop Montreal, as well as in New York City, Toronto and Quebec City.

Wild Beyond ~ Skumstrike ~ Cryptic Void

**All shows 21+—valid ID required** Doors: 7:00 PM Show: 7:30 PM Wild Beyond Unforgiving, nihilistic blackened thrash metal from the heart of Philadelphia! Featuring past and present members of Deava, Infernal Stronghold, Woe and Woods of Ypres, Wild Beyond scorch the earth with blazing black metal and savage thrash on their self-titled debut. Philadelphia trio Wild Beyond has reveled in spontaneity and the unexpected ever since the band took shape smack-dab in the middle of the 2020 pandemic. While their vision was clear from the start — Fast, unrelenting black metal paired with the savagery of early thrash — the members of Wild Beyond have channeled their unbridled energy and angst into something that exceeded their most humble of expectations. It explains why, then, Gates of Hell Records was so quick to sign Wild Beyond for the release of their eponymous debut album.https://wildbeyond.bandcamp.com/album/wild-beyondSkumstrikeFormed in the icy depths of Montreal in the winter of 2017, Skumstrike seek an unholy union between the raging punk of that city and the glowing-red aggression of ancient thrash and first-wave BM. Formed by LA (Profane Order) on strings and ZS (Serpent Corpse, Xanadoo) on vocals/ceaseless battery, ‘Demo 2017’ soon issued forth, followed by the nascent ‘Pure Coercion’ EP, which first showcased the cadre’s hideous melding of pounding hardcore with the primal madness of early Voivod and 80s Germanic steel. Spilling early blood on the stage with acts like Outre Tombe, Occult Burial, Devil Master, Profane Order, Saccage, Enforced, High Command and Napalm Raid, the group took a leap forward with their debut release on Caligari Records, ‘Execution Void’, in 2020, while ramping up live shows around eastern Canada.https://skumstrike.bandcamp.com/musicCryptic VoidCryptic Void hails from Houston, TX and have been keeping Gulf Coast Grindcore alive since 2014, delivering a fresh take on the old school approach to grindcore of furious blast riffs and groovy death metal breakdowns. Their debut release, ‘Psychic Transgressor’, was a sadistic two song tease followed up quickly by ‘Psychomanteum’, an intense assault that set the stage for everything to come. Next was, ‘Wasteland’, a promotional demo for the debut full length ‘Into the Desert Temple’. Beginning to end, this album only lets you take a breath to flip the cord only to hit you even harder with side B. No surprise as the band was formed by ex-members of such bands like Insect Warfare, P.L.F., War Master or Dissent.https://crypticvoid.bandcamp.com/
