Chatham-Kent Connection: Darren Marchand (Vocals) is from Tilbury & was also a member of Dismata, Pit Bullgrin, Gates of Rage & a few more local metal bands.

Bio: A collaboration of friends formed to push the envelope of technical music. These experienced musicians hail from such extreme acts as Closed Casket Funeral and The Coalition Design just to name a couple. Most of the members had moved to different parts of the country to pursue different things, but after a couple years they knew something was missing. After a discussion about forming this project, they all agreed to move back to our common ground of Windsor and create something much more mature that will continue to raise the bar as time goes on.

Chatham Connection: Mainman Matt Antaya is from Chatham-Kent.

Notes: Ask founding member Matt Antaya about his alt-rock band Self Cynic and his answer may surprise you. Songwriter and lead singer, Antaya, conceived his project as perhaps the opposite of a band. Self Cynic is an evolving experiment whose rotating lineup aims to demonstrate that a collection of songs will communicate their character despite varying musicians and arrangements.

Tracks:
01.
Goodbye
02. The Next Room

click to enlarge

Band: Lesser Known

Home: Tilbury Ontario
Format: CD Demo

Members:
(Spaz) Brent Rombough – Vocals
Cory Chauvin – Guitars
J.P. Caza – Guitar
Roger Beaudry – Bass
Paul Turgeon – Drums

Notes: Lesser Known was heading into the direction of Metal with strong hints of rap induced play. All bands could learn a thing or two about presentation from them. They were probably the best run indie band in Canada. Do It Yourself motto in full swing with great posters, band fanzines, website and studio blogs, posters, merch, media, great production, you name it. They had all that perfected 10 years before anyone else could spell check their own bio.
 Back in the day, Spaz was a leading force with his emotional stage presence, sucking you in to the secret circle that was the Lesser Known Zone. He had mastered this with his previous band D.N.A. which also included some members from the current band.

Tracks:
01.
Prestus Recordus
02. Weak Like You
03. Wa Zup
04. My Time
05. Come… In With The Dead
06. Sweat On Command
07. Freestyle Dis
08. Shattered Fantasy
09. Looking In My Brain
10. Getting Into It
11. Bring An Open Mind

Produced by Ron Skinner & Lesser Known
