Background

Forming in Montreal, Quebec at the turn of the new millennium, A Perfect Murder has spent the last few years refining their sound, crafting their own rules, and turning their backs on the tiresome trends watering down the hardcore scene. A Perfect Murder has reached deep into the archives of classic heavy metal and hardcore roots for inspiration. A Perfect Murder make their point by extracting the bare essences of the genre: nothing fancy, no tech-metal parts for the sake of having a tech-metal song, and no singing parts - just thick-sounding, heavy-hitting metallic hardcore.

One year after forming, A Perfect Murder released their debut EP, "Blood Covered Words" which started the word-of-mouth hype. As the buzz began to build, and with the addition of a new vocalist, Frank Pellerin, A Perfect Murder partnered up with Ontario-based Goodfellow Records and released "Cease To Suffer", which helped set their trademark sound of Hatebreed-esque vocals and breakdowns and Black Sabbath-like guitar riffs.

A Perfect Murder recorded their Victory Records debut, "Unbroken," in February 2004 at Trax East Studios with Eric Rachel (Every Time I Die, Hatebreed, Snapcase) with the end result being one of the most brutal and dynamic records that has graced the hard music scene in years. A Perfect Murder shakes things up by intermingling not only mosh-inducing breakdowns, but also classic metal sounding guitar solos and groove-inspired guitar riffs. Additionally, special guest Karl Buechner, former vocalist of Earth Crisis took a break from his latest project, Freya, to contribute vocals on "No Truce," giving them the imprimatur of one of the originators of the genre.
