Beneath the Massacre and Blackguard: Profugus Mortis join other death-metal bands in the 2009 North American Summer Slaughter Tour.

Beneath the Massacre
Coming from a rich, albeit relatively modern heritage of brutal Canadian death metal, BENEATH THE MASSACRE is perhaps the band most apt to take the title for the heaviest and most technical band from its northern forefathers. Mixing voracious, grinding double bass alongside stop-start guitar work and unhallowed death metal growls with a helpful does of destructive breakdowns and unparalleled technicality, the handful of new tracks that make up BENEATH THE MASSACRE's debut full-length are a welcome addition to the heavy metal world. After building buzz in Canada and abroad behind the band's forceful 5-track EP in 2005, the band signed with Prosthetic Records in early 2006, with Mechanics of Dysfunction unleashed to the public in early 2007, a time when metal fans worldwide are craving more extremes in a musical genre already known for being extreme.

Blackguard: Profugus Mortis

Montréal's own Profugus Mortis are undoubtedly the most talked about newcomer on the Canadian Metal scene. This is no coincidence. Their style is miles away from any local trend, beautifully incorporating violin and keys to their already eclectic mix of Power / Black / Folk Metal.

The band is already an online phenomenon with well over a 100,000 plays on their Myspace page. They already scored various high visibility gigs with Behemoth, Lacuna Coil, Moonsorrow, Yngwie Malmsteen, Finntroll, Sodom, Kataklysm, Unexpect and Augury, adding to the buzz surrounding them. Their musicianship is impeccable. Their stage show is always professional. Their energy is simply contagious. No wonder their touring schedule is filling up quickly.
