Tuesday, May 1, 2018 - Voxx Promos and Distortion - Live Music Venue proudly present, for their first time playing in Canada, coming to you from Portsmouth / Hampshire / UK - Bloodshot Dawn! Joining them on tour from Cambridge Ontario, Æpoch and locals FALSE FLAG & Detherous! Tuesday is the new Friday this week, so get ready for some epic metal! See you in the pit! Bloodshot Dawn Bloodshot Dawn is a melodic Death metal band from Portsmouth / Hampshire / UK. They will be embarking on their first Canadian tour in 2018 in support of their new album, Reanimation. "From beautiful solos, blistering combinations of pummeling barrage of chaotic drums and versatile vocal deliverances, Bloodshot Dawn’s Reanimation paves the way for the modern day technical/melodic death metal and is an absolute blast listening to if you’re fans of their previous work!" - Metal Purgatory Media " There’s a little of everything for everyone: tech riffs, melodic riffs, tremolo, groove-laden riffs and whatever else you’d care to mention." - MetalWani.com Their current lineup consists of: Canadian shredder Morgan Reid, drummer James Stewart (also of Vader and DIVINE CHAOS) and bass player Giacomo Gastaldi. Listen to "Reanimation" here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=5gEXdnVdMCk www.facebook.com/BloodshotDawn/ https://bloodshotdawn.bandcamp.com/ FALSE FLAG "In their punishing debut, Calgary metal trio False Flag skirt between multiple sub-genres while never fully committing to one. As such, they’ve created something original and crushing that is never cliché. Tracks flirt with the crushing dynamics of death doom and the wavering guitar tones, jutting palm hits and garbled howls of technical metal – think Nothing-era Meshuggah – and the energetic dynamism of punkified thrash. Given that the band is made up of current and former members of Meggido, AfterEarth, and Lordosis, it should be no surprise that Orobas slays. It’s definitely worth picking up." - The Review of their "Orobas" EP By Sarah Kitteringham http://beatroute.ca/2013/06/13/false-flag/ https://www.facebook.com/falseflagmusic/ http://falseflagmusic.bandcamp.com Æpoch Æpoch is a Progressive Extreme Metal band from Cambridge, Ontario. In June - October 2017 they recorded their debut full-length album with producer Jonah K of Monarch Woods. Their album is set to be released in spring 2018. Æpoch has played with bands such as Cryptopsy, Kataklysm, Beyond Creation, Allegaeon, Archspire, Act Of Defiance, Carach Angren, First Fragment, Inanimate Existence, Becomes Astral https://www.facebook.com/AepochMetal/ https://aepochmetal.bandcamp.com Detherous Death/Thrash Band from Calgary, Alberta https://www.facebook.com/detherous/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZJ9lMNd3aw ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Doors at 8 / Show at 8:30 Tickets $10 / Door $15 WE ALSO ACCEPT E-TRANSER - Send ticket orders to: voxxpromos@gmail.com Password: voxxpromos Please include the name of the show in your description.

Full Event Line Up - Savage Master (Louisville, KY), Bewitcher (Portland, OR) , stab.twist.pull (Calgary), Benevolent Like Quietus (Calgary), World Class White Trash (Calgary), Glare (Calgary), In Ruin (Saskatoon) You can also follow this event at www.facebook.com/events/433432047079866/ Metal United World Wide (MUWW) is a project which brings together Metal bands of all genres, Metal fans, Metal promoters, mass media and other supporters for one massive global event featuring Metal shows taking place all over the world on the same date - May 5, 2018. The goal is to create a world wide feeling of community as well as attracting attention to the bands and the scenes involved. For more info on this global event, please check out the official web page right here: www.metal-united-world-wide.com. To mark this world wide event we wanted to bring you some of Calgary's best and most popular bands that refuse to define themselves inside single genre of Metal and represent our scene with all the passion and intensity that Metal demands. We are therefore very excited to announce that stab.twist.pull, BLQ - Benevolent Like Quietus & WORLD CLASS WHITE TRASH are the first bands to be added to lineup as well. Also added to the show is Saskatoon's In Ruin on their Western Canadian tour. And the really big announcement - the Savage Master and Bewitcher North American tour will be joining us on this date as well. We are thrilled to be presenting Savage Master & Bewitcher to headline this bill! Savage Master From the very depths of hell and darkness, the wicked warriors of SAVAGE MASTER return with their new album "With Whips And Chains". Two years after releasing their debut titled "Mask Of The Devil", which has been promoted on two full US tours and on several festival stages, Stacey Savage and her hooded henchmen are back with a new Occult Heavy Metal opus, that takes you far beyond the promise of their first album, into a world of hellfire and horses, burning witches and spirits of the damned. Listen as Kentucky's True Metal cultists Savage Master rip through their second offering, 10 new songs of satanic fury and bloodstains. Not for the faint of heart! On "With Whips And Chains", the Metal tyrant Stacey Savage returns with the crack of the Devil's whip, claiming her rightful throne with her signature sensual devils screech, and backed by blistering Classic Heavy Metal riffs played by masked brutes spawned from the loins of Lucifer himself! Bewitcher ...And so it came to pass... In the year of Thirteen of Satan's third millennium, a new force rises to defend the ways of old. Bewitcher is the ancient black flame of magic, mayhem, freedom & liberation, burning in blatant opposition to the laughable norms of this modern age. Instead, they look to that bygone era, before it's pollution by imitators of a lesser intention, when heavy metal in all it's glory truly represented the tenets it was founded upon. May your children be corrupted, may your foundations 2be shaken, may your mundane existences be forever altered, for this spell cannot be broken. Fall, obey and beware the curse of the Bewitcher! stab.twist.pull Hardcore/Metal band hailing from Calgary,AB Canada. The band has been around since 2007 and often references from B horror and over the top action movies. Come check out the recent line up changes. You might be surprised at who you see on stage. BLQ - Benevolent Like Quietus Hailing from the cold, dark, winter nights of Calgary, AB, Canada; Benevolent Like Quietus brings forth a bounty of dark, brooding, gothrock influenced melodic metal. Laden with heavy riffs, catchy melodies and crushing breakdowns. The 5 piece metal act lyrically exploits the joy in sorrow and strife within life, love and death. Collectively drawing influence far and wide across the metal and rock spectrum BLQ has worked tirelessly to craft their own unique sound within the Canadian music scene. Having the pleasure of sharing the stage with touring acts such as Katatonia, Wednesday 13, All Hail the Yeti, Final Drive, Caspian and Invidia, BLQ continues to build on their live performances delivering a healthy dose of heavy, gloomy tunes to their audiences with no foreseeable end in sight. Benevolent Like Quietus is currently recording their debut full-length album which can be expected in the latter half of 2018. WORLD CLASS WHITE TRASH Founded in 2009 by Darcy Knol, World Class White Trash has always been somewhat of an enigma. With a name like World Class White Trash the general assumption is always that of a punk band, that couldn’t be further from the truth. WCWT blends all types of extreme metal including thrash, hardcore and groove. They promise to bring you a full speed, heart pounding, sweat inducing, sonic baseball bat to the side of the fuckin’ head! With the dynamic insanity of frontman Nate Trash, the headsplitting riff work of Darky Knol on lead guitar and Hayden Parker on rhythms rounded off by the heartbeat and backbone of the band respectively, Nic Larouche on drums and Justin Hall on bass. World Class White Trash will bring you a show you never expected and leave you broken, breathless, and begging for MORE!! Glare From the twisted minds of members of BLACKRAT GATEKRASHOR and RIOT CITY comes a new storm of disease rushing over the earth. Bare witness and die by GLARE. In Ruin IN RUIN IS IN PROCESS OF CREATING OUR NEW EP "ILLUMINAUSEA", PREPARING FOR THE RELEASE OF OUR DEBUT MUSIC VIDEO, AND HEADING OUT ON SPRING TOUR! CATCH US ON STAGE IN A CITY NEAR YOU! Tickets are available on line at showpass.com and will be available at Sloth Records, Distortion - Live Music Venue, and from stab.twist.pull, BLQ - Benevolent Like Quietus, and WORLD CLASS WHITE TRASH Sponsors: Big Rock Brewery - METALHEADS UNITED - Calgary Beer Core - Calgary Metal Scene Events - Distortion - Live Music Venue - The Celestial Agency Support your Scene | Like | Share | Invite | Rage On

Decimate Metalfest is the brainchild of Sloan Voxx of Voxx Promos, which is destined to become an annual Canadian metal pilgrimage to Calgary, Alberta, Canada. With the many yearly festivals becoming part of the national metal heritage, Sloan wants DECIMATE METALFEST to become one of the best-known events alongside the various festivals located within Alberta, and Western Canada. With Voxx Promos booking and promotional experience, and the support of metalheads internationally, there is nothing to stop them from reaching their goal of bringing in the masses and putting on incredible metal festivals for years to come! Voxx Promos was the head promoter for Canada’s Extreme Metal Radio’s CEMR Metalfest in 2017 (https://www.facebook.com/events/222522428193641/), which showcased a killer line up of Western Canada’s up and coming metal bands such as Terrifier, Planet Eater, Display Of Decay, W.M.D, Vile Insignia, Path to Extinction, Tessitura Official, Anarcheon, Kelevra, Train Bigger Monkeys, Ye Goat-Herd Gods, Detherous, Juliet Ruin, Augurium, Anti-Pattern, Forsaken Rite, Graveyard Nemesis and BLQ - Benevolent Like Quietus. DECIMATE METALFEST promises to be bigger and better than the executed festival last year and its pending lineup will certainly not disappoint. Festival organizer Sloan Voxx comments: “We are so excited to be embarking on the adventure of starting our very own Metal Festival! We’ve been very fortunate to have worked with so many incredible people and bands in the past and we value them so much. What better way to spend a weekend than to bring them all together for 3 days of epic music and entertainment! We have a great team on board and we can’t wait to get this fest off the ground with the help of seasoned and up-an-coming metal bands of all kinds! Let’s do this!

In 2018 ULI JON ROTH is celebrating a rare TRIPLE ANNIVERSAY For UJR Fans all over the globe 2018 is going to be a very special year: I) 40-year anniversary of SCORPIONS - TOKYO TAPES ! II) 40-year anniversary of the Birth of ELECTRIC SUN !! III) 50-year ANNIVERSARY of Uli’s first ever stage performance in 1968 !!! To celebrate this special anniversary year, ULI JON ROTH is performing a whole series of concerts and tours worldwide with varying programmes. His two-month TRIPLE ANNIVERSARY NORTH AMERICAN TOUR – starting at the end of May 2018 - will be devoted to performing a complete set of Songs from Uli’s ground breaking ELECTRIC SUN period. ELECTRIC SUN REBORN will consist of an intense 90-minute set by Uli and his band, complemented by multi-media projections. This is followed by an intermission and a shorter set of the highlights from TOKYO TAPES REVISITED to round off the 3-hour extravaganza. Uli has not performed the bulk of this music for over 30 years. Although it never enjoyed the overwhelming commercial success of Scorpions, Electric Sun was far more than just a cult band and had a sizeable following on both sides of the Atlantic as well as in Japan. Largely thanks to Uli’s innovative and ground-breaking guitar playing and interesting compositions the band became artistically influential and presented a unique blend, which was sometimes likened to a strange mixture, located somewhere between Beethoven and Hendrix. Following the worldwide success of his latest SCORPIONS REVISITED releases, Uli will now revisit the spellbinding music of his first solo venture after leaving Scorpions and re-connect with his songs from that prolific era of his long and colourful career. Widely regarded as one of the greatest guitar players ever, Uli pioneered a unique style of guitar playing which - for the first time - combined complete mastery of the instrument with an intensely melodic and emotional appeal. Uli’s Electric Sun guitar solos are both uplifting and often mesmerizing, displaying a very wide variety of textures, colours and novel ideas. They always take you on a journey. From his earliest days’ onwards, Uli has always been a bold and uncompromising musical innovator of the first order and his Electric Sun period bears ample witness to that fact. Being the first guitar player in rock to incorporate complex melodic arpeggio sequences, Uli Jon Roth - in the eyes of many of his peers - practically reinvented modern guitar-technique almost singlehandedly during his Scorpions tenure, but even more so during his Electric Sun days. Uli has now taken a fresh look at this material, drawn from the altogether three Electric Sun albums which he wrote some 40 years ago. The three albums – in chronological order – were EARTHQUAKE, FIRE WIND and BEYOND THE ASTRAL SKIES. Electric Sun and Uli fans alike will be delighted to finally hear these songs played live again by the master himself. As a real bonus for his die-hard fans and connoisseurs Uli has a special treat in store which will bring many a tear to the eyes of nostalgic older fans; due to popular request, Uli will finally bring his legendary white Fender Stratocaster guitar on tour again! The famous instrument - which he used during ALMOST ALL the Scorpions and Electric Sun recordings (!) - will make an onstage appearance for a couple of songs after having remained silent for so many years... The guitar has not been played in public since the Mid-Eighties when Uli switched over to SKY GUITARS for good and he is looking forward to putting this iconic guitar through its paces for old times’ sake. The “WHITE STRAT” can be seen on the covers of IN TRANCE as well as FIRE WIND. Uli played this guitar in EVERY SINGLE Scorpions concert since 1975 and on every single Electric Sun album !!! To make the evening even more intense, another VERY SPECIAL TREAT is reserved for the purchasers of VIP PASSES and comes as a big surprise. (VIP passes are only available online at UliJonRoth.com). VIP PASS holders will be given a unique opportunity to hear Uli perform his METAMORPHOSIS OF VIVALDI’S FOUR SEASONS in its entirety during a private pre-show concert !!! Uli has not performed Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in over 14 years and this is a very rare chance to hear this amazing piece of music played live by the “Master of the Sky Guitar” himself. Uli was the first and only guitarist ever to perform this most famous of all violin concertos on electric guitar note for note, stretching the instrument to the very limits of its capabilities, and beyond. Vivaldi’s Four Seasons concerto was written in 1723 and sounds as fresh and inspirational now as it did 300 years ago. Particularly so in Uli’s truly mind-blowing rendition, which is fiendishly difficult to play on guitar and can only be performed at concert pitch on one of his signature SKY GUITARS. Uli will be accompanied for the VIP event by his two very talented young protégés NIKLAS TURMAN and DAVID KLOSINSKI on guitar as well as CORVIN BAHN on keyboards who will play the orchestral parts. As an additional treat, Uli is going to perform this piece on his legendary “MIGHTY WING” 7-string SKY GUITAR, which has not been seen in public for a long time, but which was his main guitar for a period of 20 years. ULI JON ROTH FANS all over the world ! Prepare yourselves for a monumental evening of sheer musical ecstasy !!!

The Faceless’ debut album, Akeldama, was released in November of 2006 and was the first release on Sumerian Records, a brand new record label at the time. They released their second album, Planetary Duality in November of 2008. Planetary Duality reached #119 on the Billboard 200. Autotheism, their third album, was released in August of 2012 and reached #50 on the Billboard 200. They will be releasing their highly anticipated fourth album in 2017, which will be titled “In Becoming a Ghost.” Guitarist Michael Keene is known for his vast knowledge of music theory, his songwriting, and his producing skills. He has recorded and produced all of The Faceless’ albums, as well as many albums for other well-known bands. The Faceless has a very unique, sharp sound. They often focus on mixing fast, aggressive riffs, high-speed blast beats and double bass, and heavy, death metal style vocals with tasty guitar melodies, beautiful solos, eerie clean vocals, and creatively-structured drumming. They have made a name for themselves as a critically acclaimed “musician’s band.” The music is truly composed, and nothing short of perfection. The Faceless is known for pushing musical limits and experimenting with things that other metal bands have not dared to venture into, such as saxophone solos, industrial sounds, and even a sample of a crying baby. The Faceless’ music has influenced an entire generation of bands and is unanimously adored by the metal community.

Hailing from Washington State, slated to play 2.5 hour set, Blistered Earth is the best Metallica tribute band on the planet (we checked!). Playing classic songs ranging from 1983's "Kill Em' All", to 1991's self-titled "Metallica" this tribute pays it's respects to one of the greatest heavy metal bands of all time with the raw energy, showmanship, look and song selections that die-hard Metallica fans want to see and hear, they are the ultimate tribute to Metallica with locals W.M.D Formed in 2015, W.M.D, previously known as Shrapnal, has evolved into a blistering fast thrash act that consistently destroys every performance. Their name, which stands for "When Minds Develop", is a concept that inspires their heavy Thrash Metal with the idea that the developed human mind is the ultimate weapon of mass destruction. W.M.D are currently recording their debut album, so prepare yourselves for a party. These 20-22 year old maniacs don't just destroy the stage....they destroy themselves as well! $4 Highballs every Friday / Saturday til 10pm $6 Big Rock Brewery tall cans ALL NIGHT!

This first year included 10 additional showings in the Pacific Northwest with Antaeus, Negura Bunget, Bell Witch, Christian Mistress, Sabbath Assembly, and more.
