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.

Genre: Metal
Home: Tilbury

Members:
Cory Chauvin
– Guitarist (ex-Lesser Known, D.N.A.)
Darren James – Vocals (Dismata, PitBull Grin)

Notes from their page
Rearing it’s ugly head in June 2005 “A Dying Fixation” was spawned from a simple concept…friends getting together to deliver a punishing dose of extreme groove-oriented hard-core / metal music. A new project where the main focus is to bring something a little fresh to the current scene while leaving a trail of musical destruction behind them.
  They have released three tracks on ‘myspace.com’ that include Vultures, Home Town Grotesque, and Martyrs Wear Murder Weapons.

The Golden Eagles 2009

March 8, 2010

Band: The Golden Eagles
Release: The Gold Album
Year: 2009
Formed: Early 2008
Home: Windsor/ Chatham-Kent

Members:
Jamie Reaume – Vocals and guitar.
Neil Tupling – Bass (ex-Lost Souls Division)
Geoff Yunker – drums.

 Notes: Some of you may know singer songwriter Jamie Reaume from his previous band Foreign Film Star, or saw him play a solo acoustic show  in Chatham or Windsor. He used to often play at the Elephant’s Nest and other venues while growing up in Chatham.
 Jamie is currently living in the Windsor area and his new band involves musicians from there as well.
   This is a great indie CD worth checking out. Their first single “Cell Phone” is a great indication of jamie improving consistently with his song writing and song structures. This track alone shows signs of a band who gets it and has worked hard to drop tracks that simply rock without trying to over play, be too artsy, or too safe.

Track Listing
01 Cell Phone
02 See You Coming
03 Bird Of Prey
04 Go
05 Surfing At The Circus
06 Don’t Wanna Know
07 Twenty Something
08 Dr Shark’s Leather Couch
09 The Duke

The Gold Album was recorded from November 2008 to March 2009 at Sharktank Studios in Windsor, Ontario and was engineered, mixed and mastered by Mark Plancke. The album features guest appearances from Sara Hines as Sally, Mark Plancke as Dr. Shark and Jose Ramirez as El Diablo.
