The Exclaim! Aggressive Tendencies tour is back with one of its most innovative and progressive line–ups to date. A cross Canada tour dedicated to celebrating hard, heavy and creative bands, this year features Relapse recording artists BARONESS and GENGHIS TRON along with newly signed Metal Blade recording artist BISON.
With a sound built upon a resolute sense of purpose and shaped by hundreds of explosive live shows, Georgia’s BARONESS position themselves at the forefront of heavy music with their debut full length and Relapse debut Red Album. Red Album is at once powerful, expressive, confident, and commanding. The band is a touring machine with almost 250 shows a year - since the band’s inception. Now they will be taking over clubs with their first headlining tour through Canada.
The enigmatic trio GENGHIS TRON weaves an ocean-sized orchestra from just a few instruments and machines. On GENGHIS TRON's vivid palette of sound and texture, giant riffs and frenetic beats make perfect sense next to haunting vocal melodies and moments of subtle beauty. The bands recent Relapse debut 'Board Up the House' spills over with the extremes of modern music into an unforgettable album experience unlike any other.
One of the latest signings to Metal Blade records, BISON are born of the ashes of seminal Vancouver skate-thrash band S.T.R.E.E.T.S. Their riffs are colossal and flow like a mighty river into a sea of fuzzed out shredding. Their message is punk rock angst and revolution, with the occasional nod to white wizards, the king of swine and a mythical beast called the "Stokasaurus". BISON is currently recording their Metal Blade debut Quiet Earth with Jesse Gander (3 Inches of Blood, Subhumans, Mass Grave, S.T.R.E.E.T.S.) at The Hive Studios in Burnaby, BC and are currently slated for a fall 2008 release.
