Never miss another 'Cancer Bats' show
See all dates for Independent Venue Week 2019
Proving that loud, gritty, and ranting punk rock is still alive and thrashing in Canada, Toronto's Cancer Bats employ a punishing blend of hardcore punk, metalcore, Southern rock, and sludge metal. Citing a wide berth of musical inspirations, including Black Flag, Down, Led Zeppelin, Entombed, and Black Sabbath (they have toured Canada as a Sabbath cover band under the moniker Bat Sabbath) they emerged in 2006 with the hard-hitting Birthing the Giant. They caught fire in the early 2010s, earning Juno Award nominations for 2011's Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones and 2013's Dead Set on Living.

Brutal death metal is the order of the day from this Glaswegian quintet. Chugging, raw riffery collides with frill-free blasts to create a face-melting sound.
Bleed From Within tour dates
'Hurtling out of the burgeoning Asian metal scene are the Nepalese noisemakers Underside. The band formed in 2004, following the country's civil war that lasted almost a decade, as a loud and aggressive response to the sociopolitical situation at the time. Now the four-piece are one of the biggest and best metal bands Nepal and neighbouring India have ever seen. This is metal through and through.'
