This video is just a little taste of what the playing environment is like, and Armstrong Metalfest is growing each year, and will only get bigger and better from here.

Death Toll Rising Announces New Album

Featuring a combination of death and thrash metal, Edmonton-based Death Toll Rising formed in 2003 in Stony Plain, Canada and has been grinding the Western Canadian metal scene steadily. The following press release was issued about the band's lineup and upcoming album:

"New addition Tylor Dory on guitars has introduced a technical and progressive element to the band they have not had in the past. Add in the intense and relentless drumming provided by Bryan Newbury (recently recruited by Canadian prog/death powerhouse Into Eternity), as well as the well-rounded rhythm provided by Drew Copeland on guitar and Mike Puff on bass, and you get a monster that is only now being unleashed upon the masses with vocalist Jesse Berube topping things off with a combination of brutal death growls and Tomas Lindberg-esqe high shrieks, which will be plenty noticeable as they gear up for the release of their sophomore album 'Infection Legacy' on October 22nd, the follow up to their 2010 debut album 'Defecation Suffocation' and 2008 EP 'Spontaneous Decapitation'."

Guitarist Drew Copland comments: "This album has been a long time coming for us, but we firmly believe in taking your time and never releasing something that you feel is inferior in any way.
