Diemonds calls downtown Toronto their home, but they live for crisscrossing the continent for weeks on end,armed with little more than their brand of original hard rock, their gear and a dream. With their 3rd album ‘Never Wanna Die’ released on August 14th, 2015, the band continues to modernize their heavy rock n' roll sound. With multiple Juno award-winner Eric Ratz (Monster Truck, Billy Talent) in the producer chair, it’s only fitting the album was nominated for ‘Heavy Metal Album of the Year’ at the 2016 Juno Awards. Remaining true to their sound, Diemonds takes lyrics that speak to the outcasts, wildchilds, and misfits, and combines them with a hard-hitting live show, taking cues from the greats they look up to. https://youtu.be/s3GyVwbw8aU
OPEN AIR http://openairofficial.com/ Revival is certainly an apt term for what Open Air bring to the table. Their sound is like a blender full of Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and Cream with a dash of just about everything else rock from the late 60's and beyond. Open Air mix sex appeal with the pounding chords, guitar rock is famous for.
At the band's core are four gifted musicians who honestly enjoy what they do, and this is what sets them apart. There is a youthful exuberance and a true appreciation for what’s around them, namely their art and their audience. So modernly old school, Open Air’s goal is to bring back musicianship, relying on talent rather than machines to manipulate their sound. With a high-energy, no-holds-barred live show, Open Air give their fans all the loud, raw and gritty attitude that rock n' roll is made of.
The Path Less Traveled is Canada's sleeper hard rock band that draws from punk rock influences like Rise Against and Sum 41, while blending their sound with familiar radio rock vibes from Three Days Grace and Seether. Natives to Calgary, they have been involved in the thriving music scene that Calgary has to offer. Playing dates all over western Canada and opening for bands like Finger Eleven, Econoline Crush, P.O.D., The Lazys, and Monster Truck, they're no strangers to Western Canada's rock scene.With rock slowly trickling back into the mainstream, The Path Less Traveled is on the cusp of making a name for themselves in Canada. Their latest release, entitled "Home", is a high energy anthem that starts off big right out of the gate. It's a song with a message about the state of our world and it doesn't pull any punches. Soaring guitars, frantic drums, and strong vocals are all used to marry the idea of aggression and beauty. https://youtu.be/4WzzWkvjXfI
