I hold making an attempt to drill it into the heads of my buddies in American-based touring bands that there’s a treasure trove of steel goodness able to welcome them (and are available to their reveals and purchase their merch) east of Montreal. Alas, for no matter purpose, routing will not often take a band previous the island the place you may’t make a proper on a pink mild and into the wilds of Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and, for the extra adventurous, Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island. Earlier than anybody scoffs on the notion, take into consideration that while you’re staring out the window on the wastelands of Kansas, Nebraska or Iowa or bemoaning the dearth of cool locations to play west of Denver earlier than you get to California, Washington or Oregon. 

The japanese Canadian steel scene is just like the Toyota Camry of steel scenes: compact and dependable. And one of many longer operating extra recognizable names are Orchid’s Curse. Shaped 18 years in the past within the Dartmouth-Halifax space of Nova Scotia, the band has issued six releases since 2006 — their newest being an EP titled The Decay which is launched tomorrow and a stream of which we’re operating beneath — and have received a number of native music and recognition awards over the course of their historical past. Moreover, vocalist Josh Hogan is thought for his involvement in Purple Tentacle “a multi-facet music options firm providing quite a lot of providers for impartial artists, music trade professionals and small companies” and is a well known Halifax live performance promoter. 

The Decay sees the band taking steps to consciously be as stylistically numerous as potential with every of the six songs on provide, from sluggish and low to quick and livid, from melodic dying steel and thrash to late ’90s/early ’00s Hydra Head/Relapse metallic hardcore and epic bright-eyed sludge. 

Right here’s what they needed to say about their newest work: “We’re elated to lastly be releasing The Decay to the plenty. Writing for this album began earlier than the pandemic and we’re glad the time to launch it’s lastly right here. One optimistic is that with the shutdowns we had a number of additional time to spend refining these songs to make sure it was probably the most mature and competent launch thus far. With every new album we at all times attempt to proceed to progress and up the ante musically and artistically. All of us really feel actually assured in these songs and this launch as a complete.”
