When we accepted Chained By Mind's submission, they were an exceedingly talented and driven -18 band in the Calgary area! Now they are playing in and are ready to decimate the 18+ Bar scene!

Chained By Mind is a Calgary heavy metal band formed by drummer Griffin Klapak in 2014. Since the inclusion of Quinn Rupert on bass and Shane Madani on guitar in 2016, the band has developed a sound influenced by various stoner, sludge, progressive, death, and black metal bands. CxM has done well for themselves as a minor band performing festivals such as Moments Fest numerous times and Sled Island for the first time in 2018. 2019 marks the year that the band will move into the 18+ scene. They strive to make music that is both melodic and experimental. Filled with heavy yet catchy riffs, hard-hitting drums, and highly aggressive vocals, their performances are energetic and (the band hopes) impressive for this young band's age. CxM is incredibly excited and eternally thankful for the opportunity to play Decimate 2.0, a festival that the band thinks is sure to be one of the highlights of their music careers.
