CANNIBAL CORPSE - Kill

By Korgüll The Destroyer - Metal for Supper - The Afternoon Edition - 03/21/2006

The cover for this album was disappointingly tame. I mean, if it's not a picture of a maggot colony bursting out of a corpse performing cunnilingus on a dead pregnant body that has demon/mutant/alien thing tearing itself free from the womb, is it really a Cannibal Corpse album cover?

dEUS + Eastern Conference Champions @ Main Hall

By Jordan-na Belle-Isle - Canadian Invasion - 03/25/2006

After a five-year hiatus, dEUS is back with a new album (Pocket Revolution) and a new label (V2). Popular in Europe during the nineties, members of the Belgium band took time off to pursue side projects, which usually indicate the demise of a band. Yet their show in Montreal proved the contrary. Although dEUS had been gone, they were certainly not forgotten by their faithful following nor had forgotten how to put on a great show.


REGINA SPEKTOR @ Cabaret

By Stephanie D - Twee Time - 04/08/2006

She is a vision of beauty: a young woman surrounded by Matryoshka dolls, a hot chick who drinks wine straight from the bottle. A sly smile is always planted upon her angelic face, radiating from her mouth and eyes. Regina, Regina ah ah ah. The Russian goddess with a Bronx edge.


NEKO CASE + The High Dials @ Club Soda

By Idle Matt - Idle Minds - 04/04/2006

If I had to describe last week’s Neko Case show at Club Soda in two words, it would be Goose-bump Inducing. I’ve had this opening sentence set in my mind for a while, so let’s just ignore the fact that goose-bump is technically two words. Please? (Editor's Note: Fine.)


FROSTBITE TOUR 2006 @ Spectrum

By Josh Mocle - The Kids Are So-So - 03/30/2006

Arriving at the Spectrum, one of Montreal’s premier rock venues, on the evening of March 30th, I suppose the first thing that occurred to me was the irony of attending a show with the word “frostbite” in its name on one of the warmest days in recent memory. My horrible sense of humor aside, I had been pretty excited for this show for some time and after a particularly hellish week at school, I was ready to kick back and hear some good ska and hardcore with a little straight-up punk rock mixed in for good measure. I can safely say that The Frostbite Tour delivered on most counts.
