Winners of the 2019 Wacken Metal Battle Canada competition, Toronto’s melodic proggers THE SLYDE have released a video for the track “These Wars”, one of the highlights from their latest album Awakening.
The ‘no-budget video’ was filmed in the Toronto region and is a no-frills visual accompaniment to the first single off the band’s second full-length album that was released at the end of 2018. The band shares the video’s concept:
“We had a lot of fun shooting the video for These Wars. We went mostly for a straight-up, rockin’ out, daytime shoot, as we wanted to show what it’s like to see us live in concert. The song comments on the impact that cell phones have made on society, and I think the silly shots convey that nicely and compliment the performance shots.”

Hey there! I’m Zach I love long walks on the beach and movies that make you cry. Wait a minute this isn’t my E-Harmony account. Let’s try this again, hi I’m Zach from Dawson Creek, BC. Before you think it, no it’s not like the TV show! I have loved music ever since I was a kid back in Abbotsford, BC where I was born. Moved up north when I was about six and was practically raised up here. Hands down one of my favorite Canadian band has to be Simple Plan, with Dallas Smith coming in second. One of my Favorite Things I enjoy doing is just sitting around listening to music or taking pictures. I’d say I’m a pretty good photographer but you can be the judge of that. Just even ask a couple of my friends City light vigil, Scarlet serenity or Violet night. If you’re still reading this congratulations you’ve reached the end.
