This next band impressed us with the drive they have for their music and the great sound that they have at such a young age. You can easily tell they their influences have played a big part in their music and what it is today. Please welcome, Lacerator!
Lacerator is a 5 piece metal band from St. Albert, Alberta that has been shredding up the Edmonton area for over 2 years.
The beat of the band is held by Eric Henning's fast yet groovy style on the drums and Evan
Bruce's untameable energy and unbelievable bass riffs. Metal just isn't metal without head exploding guitar solos though, so Michael Nobrega and Benjamin Nickerson shred with ease and accuracy. Finally Gavin Beaulieu brings vocals straight from the demons in hell. This band has played shows at various venues in Edmonton, for example, The Rendevouz, Bohemia, The Forge, and of course the heart of their scene, the Clever Rabbit Vegan Café.
On August 4th 2018, they played their first all ages show that really solidified them as an up and coming metal band in the area. That night they played with Edmonton thrash titans Rising Sun and Malicious intent, as well as the horror punk band Misery tomb. The show was a major success as it saw kids and adults alike mosh and tear the place down. That show was a huge momentum boost and they continue to play at that venue!
Lacerator plans to have physical copies of their debut EP for sale at the show as well as t-shirts. If you’re having trouble making up your mind about going to decimate let Lacerator be the band that makes up your mind, and always remember to MOSH AND DIE!
