Genre: Grind Core
Grizzly comes at us with this new album release entitled Reaper and it’s some heavy hitting, fast metal with amazing hardcore instrumental playing strong through it all.
The band is made up of Mark on guitar and his two brothers on drums & vocals, as well as their best friend on Bass. From Wingham, Ontario, no one is getting any rest in this town with this positively noisy hardcore band.
With twelve tracks to choose from, Grizzly will leave you rocking out all night. Make sure you have that extra hard drywall cause these few tracks probably will be causing some damage and destruction somewhere. These were my favourite ones on this intense album.
“Bi(:)ch Grinder” has an evil Bill and Ted feel to it with some futuristic guitar play and amazing vocals. The intensity on this track keeps you stuck in it all the way through. The guitarist possesses pure skill and he’s as fast as hell.
“Reaper” is all bass and drums. A fast and funky song that keeps your heart pumping with every strum of the bass. The drums are out of this world and keep your head banging all the way through.
“Hung and Gutted” is a dark title and the bass playing has a mind blowing Twilight Zone feel to it. I need to see this band live. I could only imagine how intense this song is. I bet this one gets the mosh pits going!
Connect with Grizzly:
Born in Kingston, I grew up with the likes of Dan Akroyd and his blues influence and also The Tragically Hip, plus live shows downtown in the streets and country bands in the pubs.
I love music in all forms and genres. I can adapt my ear to enjoy and appreciate all instrumentals and vocals. I started writing about certain artists that I grew up listening to and then I reached out to artists for interviews. I have done over 20 interviews with artists and CEOs of industry companies from all over the world.
Now, with Canadian Beats I have an opportunity to improve my journalistic abilities and to get the word out there for artists, and best of all to go to shows and get that personal feeling. I get to represent Canadian music on a higher level. We need to open more doors and have more shows and venues, as well as get the world to come to us. That is my goal.
