Band: The Apex
Genre: Tech Metal
Home: Windsor based
Year: 2013
Formed: 2011

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.

Darren – Vox

Brian – Guitar

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.

Self Cynic CD Release

May 14, 2010

Band: Self Cynic
Release: Self Cynic
Year: 2008
Home: Chatham-Kent (Tilbury)
Resides: Montreal
Formed: 2006

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.
  Matt began writing music at age 12, then went on to University (Waterloo) and spent allot of time working in studios, eventually making his way to Montreal.

Tracks:
01.
Goodbye
02. The Next Room
03. Misbehave
04. In My Head
05. Mona Lisa
06. Stone Throw
07. All Around
08. Never Change
09. Try It Again
10. Evil Freedom
11. Already Gone
12. Left Behind 04:19
