Biugek 2018 Release

April 1, 2018

Duo: Biugek
Release: WRK
Year: 2018
Genre: Experimental metal
Home: Toronto
From: Chatham-Kent (Grand Pointe/Pain Court)

Biugek Members
Joel Caron – Keyboard, Expression Pedal
Nigel Barylewicz – Drums

Chatham-Kent connection: Both guys live in Toronto, but grew up in Chatham-Kent, and both are Pain Court high school graduates. Joel & Nigel played locally in heavier bands before moving away. Each, amazingly musically talented on their own, are pushing their boundaries by joining together simply to experiment and move further into new ideas.

Tracks
1.
WRK1
2. WRK2
3. WRK3
4. WRK4
5. WRK5
6. WRK6
7. WRK7

Notes:
  “For the 2nd album by Toronto group Biugek, called WRK, the drums-and-keyboards duo go deeper inside their metallic and mathematical vortex. And go to work. They aren’t laying back into the jams here, this is full on running a tight ship experimental polyrthythmic metal – a palate of dry black-and-white shadows mechanically running off course, a puzzling mind within the mind. This is fucking sick and it keeps coming at you in the best way. Picture an eccentric machinist curious what the gears can do when pushed to the limit, before they pop and pull apart in a chopper whirl of tools and die, that second before it explodes, all that study for a firework flash of time. Where perfect left turns act as alleyway shortcut savvy, blueprint navigation theirs alone, laying the dynamite’s trail, with the smoke cloud’s tail, where unwinding and serpentine entanglements of traps and keys pummel, work the shadows, and tease utter deterioration. For that firecracker blaze in a powdered second, they go to work.” – Kevin Cahill, Rotational Review

Mike Davidson (Spaz) – Vocals
Cory Chauvin – Guitars
J.P. Caza – Guitar
Roger Beaudry – Bass

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.

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

08. Shattered Fantasy

Another Great Canadian Power Metal Band with light progressive elements, Featuring: former Eidolon vocalist, Brian Soulard. If your a fan of Megadeth or Fates Warning or Eidolon, this band may be your thing.

   This is the bands 2nd release, the bands first “self titled” Release was very nicely received by metal reviewers around the world and received many high praises. This album is quite a step up from their last, so we envision it doing quite well.

   The band 7 th REIGN was formed in January 2005 by Marios Panayiotis and Brian Soulard. (ex- EIDOLON vocalist) They started off with one goal, to form the kind of band that they would want to hear and see live. They were not worried about current trends or past influences but instead concentrated on creating good music that would cross many themes and styles but was built on the best form of music……METAL!!

Songs
01 Servants of the Lost
02 Unbeliever
03 7th Reign
04 Fallen Empires
05 Betrayed
06 The Other Side
07 Deliverance
08 Requiem for the Dead

.Is Life… Generation Zero
2.Strait-Jacket Memories
3.Special Olympics
4.Hold Your Breath

6.Technological Noose
7.Transparent Solutions
8.Plastic Cast… For M

   This Chatham based band just gets signed to Fringe Records (Toronto), Walt leaves his drumming position, Terry Hart takes over, & the new CD hits stores.
    The band toured the underground scene & quickly became as talked about as the legends of Punk/Thrash/ Metal they were opening for.
    The CD itself is great & is still as relevant today. The Mad were always known for writing music that had a purpose or message. The Mad were getting airplay across the country on college radio & began playing shows in the U.S.A. for the first time ever.

    This is one band I looked up to. I was lucky enough to be called in to do some shows with them on bass. I was a big fan & already knew how to play their songs so that got me in the door.  I was 17 & happy as s**t. We did a leg of a tour with Dayglo Abortions. NOFX played a date on the bill. They drove up in a little white van back then.  Thanks for taking me out with ya guys. Interesting.
