Sudbury Metal Fest returns for its seventh year supporting Canadian metal with 36 bands from across the country, along with showcasing international talent that includes Negura Bunget and Grimegod from Romania plus Dyanfari from Iceland.
For three days Sudbury, ON will be biggest mosh pit in Canada from October 23 to October 25 with two stages at the Sudbury Events Centre and Asylum, both located at 19 Regent Street. SMF organzier Mark Howitt comments:
"Sudbury Metal Fest has a reputation for showcasing bands that are on the rise and doing big things, and we feel that this year's line up is a solid display of underground and independent bands that Canadian fans need to see live and know about. In the past, bands we have showcased at these events have went on to win Juno awards, and this year we feel is no exception.
"Artists like Exes For Eyes, Thantifaxath, Zaum, and Corrupt Leaders to name just a few, are making big waves and have had appearances at some large festivals in Canada and the US. It is really great to be able to display some of Canada's rising stars all in one event. For the first time, this years line up also has the inclusion of punk and hardcore bands such as the legendary punk band The Ripcordz. We are extremely excited to have brought this unique festival back to life and the response so far has been over the top." More...
Dynfari is streaming the band's entire new full-length album online (available below) and the band also comments:
"Today marks the release of our new album 'Vegferð tímans.' Stream it from start to finish below. We would like to use the opportunity to give thanks to everyone who helped us make this album a reality.
"It is of tremendous relief to finally get this album to you when the initial thought was to release it in late 2013. We believe the journey has been a meaningful one though, and the album benefited from the time we spent rethinking it and polishing. It could not be as it is without the following people:
- Karen Ýr for lending her beautiful voice to Vegferð II - Ad Astra
- Johan Becker (Vaskula) for his brilliant violin performance in Óreiða
- Haukur Hannes for an awesome job with the mixing & mastering of the music
- Metastazis (Alcest, Behemoth, Watain, Morbid Angel) for his breathtaking artwork, perfectly capturing the essence of our music visually
- Our label Aural Music for solidifying our tones and their cooperation in bringing it to new realms
- Bragi & Hjálmar, our now full-time guitar and bass players, for willing to play this material with us live despite not having been part of the composing or recording process. We look forward to indulging in future endeavours with them and Andri from Auðn.
"We will announce a release concert in Reykjavík soon enough and plenty more shows to follow in both Iceland and North America later this year. Until then - bon voyage." More...
"Vegferð Tímans," directly translated as "Journey of Time," is Dynfari's third full-length album and glimpses into untold history: the inevitable demise of man as matter once living and breathing, dissolving into nothingness, uniting with the infinite heavens and becoming one with the stars.
The album will drop March 16th via Code666 Records. Artwork for the Icelandic black metal band's new album was handled by Metaztasis (Watain, Behemoth) and the track listing is as follows:
3. Sandkorn (í stundaglasi tímans)
5. Fall hinna XCII og 2,57885161 - 1 sálna
6. Vegferd I - Ab Terra
7. Vegferd II - Ad Astra
8. Vegferd III - Myrkrid More...
Dynfari has signed a deal to release the band's new album “Sem Skuggin” through Code666 Productions. Code666 commented:
"Founded in 2010 in Iceland, Dynfari can be described as Atmospheric/Post-Black Metal. 'Sem Skugginn' is a highly dynamic and diverse concept album touching on the subject of humanity’s decline and human depravity in relation to the striking contrasts between how humanity is but a brief moment in history compared to the eternity that is the age of the universe.
"The diversity is personified with ambient sounds followed by blast beats, fast tempos by slow tempos, loudness by quiet and melancholy by hope…"
