Auroch, Celestial Coffin Psycomantium
Mon, Jul 16
The Slice - Lethbridge


Time: 9 p.m.



Spawned from Vancouver’s underground back in 2008, Lovecraftian death metal trio Auroch is on a mission to give Canadian extreme metal traditions the respect they deserve, bringing them to the countless maniacs always anticipating the next epic death metal assault.

Following a number of smaller releases, Auroch will finally be unleashing its soon to be titled first full-length album in summer 2012.

“The album is the inevitable and natural point of evolution from the past releases,” says guitarist/vocalist Sebastian Montesi. “These songs came together over the past year and represent the fiercest, fastest, most harrowing and barbaric of our written and certainly recorded material.”

Showcasing the band’s metamorphoses from thrash metal band into a full-fledged death metal assault, the debut full-length album is “raw, relentless and tapping into a musical current of the wrath of Lovecraft’s Ancient Ones. Any and all who question or condemn modern conventions should sympathize with the ideologies and mythos provided. Fans of barbaric blasting and technical shredding should associate with the musicality” says Montesi.

Auroch is awakening and shall pave the path for the coming of the most Ancient One!

Psycomantium is a melodic metal band that incorporates elements of thrash and death to create their unique sound. The group was spawned in September 2006, following a chance encounter between Dave Khallil and Arik Wagner at a local Lethbridge A.B music store. Currently the band is preparing to release their self-titled debut album. This independent recording conveys themes of social upheaval and ideological warfare, but also hope for change and world redemption. To promote the upcoming release, Psycomantium will embark on a tour of western Canada and the U.S. during the spring and summer of 2010. Following a number of member changes, the Psycomantium line up was solidified when founding members Dave Khallil (guitar/vocals) and Arik Wagner (guitar) were joined by Dustin Gergel (drums) and Marcel Puurveen (bass) in mid 2009. Although the group has been together in its current form for less than one year, their combined playing experience totals nearly four decades. During their short career, Psycomantium have been continually performing live and have opened for a number of touring acts. Some of the most notable of which include Galey record’s Unexpect, and Anonymus, Cyclone record’s Caveat and Wormbox and most recently Practical Art record’s Woods of Ypres. With the vital combination of talent, persistence and uncompromising musical vision, Psycomantium are poised to ascend the metal ranks and sit among the heroes who they have drawn inspiration. ..
