“We feel privileged to be a fairly regular band on the AMF roster. We always look forward to performing on their big stage, and reuniting with a bunch of our closest brothers and sisters of the Western Canadian metal scene. We’re excited to play our new material for the crowd of friends and festival goers who have probably seen us perform countless times and are ready for some more variety in our live set. The promoters are great at what they do, and have become good friends of ours over the years.” says vocalist / guitarist Shane Sherman.
Inspired by such giants as Goijira. Sikth, Meshuggah, Dillinger Escape Plan, Between The Buried And Me, SLAGDUSTER’s sound can be best described as “progressive, groovy, creative, unique, heavy”. Their next offering “Deadweight” is the follow up their 2010 debut album ‘Nature.Humanity.Machine’. The album features nine tracks that give a variety a flavor with its ripping riffs and tremolo melodies to soft transitional parts and psychedelic interludes on top of constant heaviness and groove.
