Cancer Bats Concert Preview

This hardcore punk band from Toronto might as well call Montreal their second home as they are here doing shows so often (if you miss this one they will be back again in the spring). But if I were from Toronto I too would be in Montreal as much as possible!

The band is part Led Zeppelin and part Black Flag with some southern rock influences thrown into the mix. With their debut release coming in 2006 ("Birthing the Giant"), they burst onto the Canadian hard rock scene gathering much attention. So much so that they were chosen to host MTV Canada's All Things Rock show and had one of their videos played to close it out. Just recently they released their second album, "Hail Destroyer". Their music is loud, fast, passionate, and full of fury.

They seem to have a burning desire to play live in every city on the globe, so when they play you are really seeing a band that is passionate about what they do. All members are confident and aggressive on stage which makes for an interesting visual and audio spectacle.
