On Saturday afternoon of Heavy MTL, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Job for a Cowboy’s bass player, Nick Schendzielos.  Nick told me about his other band, Cephalic Carnage, talks about travelling and makes a good few jokes in between.  This interview was one of my favorites, just because Nick has a really [...]

Day two of Heavy MTL was just as excellent as day one, but this time, with sun!  After the rain on Saturday, it was nice to get a bit of sun on Sunday.  The Jagermeister stage and the Heavy MTL stage switched places, which was probably nice for the people who paid extra for bleacher [...]

    My second weekend in a row spent in Parc Jean Drapeau was for Heavy MTL.  A vast departure from my previous weekend, spent at Osheaga, it was still a very pleasant weekend.  Even though pleasant is the least metal word that I could use to describe a weekend of metal.  This weekend, the [...]

On the third day of any festival, or constant partying in the sun, you may sometimes find yourself waking up and wondering why you must endure a third day of the madness.  This was kind of the case with me – I’m from Newfoundland, and I don’t deal well with heat exhaustion!  Luckily, Sunday morning [...]

Osheaga kicked off its second day of the 2012 festival with temperatures even hotter than on Friday (if possible)!  Saturday was not sold out at the beginning of the day, so the crowds were a lot less when I first arrived for Portugal, the Man on Virgin Mobile’s River Stage.  These guys played a wild [...]

I knew before my arrival to Jean Drapeau Park for Osheaga 2012, it was going to be a crazy time.  Everyone I knew was talking about it, and it was pretty easy to see the Montreal’s population density slowly increase from all the out-of-towners coming in for the weekend.  With one of the largest lineups [...]
