MONOBROW (Ott Instrumental Stoner Doom)
An epic journey of sci-fi metal meets psychedelic stoner in this shocking saga of riff worship. A TARG Fave!

THE DEAD CENTURIES (Ottawa Instrumental Metal)
Ottawa three-piece The Dead Centuries are both futuristic and dangerous…which is as it should be. Influenced by Protest The Hero, Periphery, Paul Gilbert, Sithu Aye and Intervals, The Dead Centuries can easily hold their heads up in such exalted company.

In their current form, The Dead Centuries compose and perform technically precise instrumental music, rich in virtuosity, melody, compositional skills, and most importantly…they create superb music to listen to. This isn’t the sound of three musicians showing off their undoubted skills, rather they are serving their songs above all else, with every fiber of their beings, every neuron firing in their minds, every tendon in their bodies. In a sense it is as if the three musicians that make up The Dead Centuries have become one mind in their own music!

DESTROY CLOCKS (Ottawa Post Metal/Shoegaze)
Hailing from Ottawa, Ontario, Destroy Clocks is a dynamic trio that fuses post metal, shoegaze, and progressive sounds. Influenced by bands like Neurosis, Behemoth, and Sonic Youth, Destroy Clocks has carved out a unique style of music that is as heavy as it is serene, and as chaotic as it is beautiful. Through their fusion of heavy guitar, transcendent piano, and precision powerhouse drumming, the trio evokes an array of emotions in their exploration of sound.
Destroy Clocks unveiled their unique brand of sound to the world in 2017 with the release of two singles, "Highway Eyes" and "Tinman." Their first full-length album, "Tarot" will be released in September 2018. Tarot was recorded, mixed and mastered by Scott Burniston and Topon Das (Fuck The Facts) with album artwork by Ryan Patterson (Fotocrime, Coliseum).
