This next band is the Under 18 People's Choice band for Decimate 2.0! We're beyond excited to be working with such a young and talented up-and-coming band!
Flashback is ultimate cross between stoner metal, and mainstream rock, with added progressive and doom influence. The group's sound reflects a heavy "wall of sound" like quality, but with undenying groove, melody, and soul.
Flashback was formed in a garage in the spring of 2016. The bands early sound was focused primarily on classic rock, and early heavy metal, but over time developed a more thick and heavy sound that caters more towards the stoner rock and doom metal genre, but with added progressive rock and hard rock influence. In 2017 came the addition of drummer Lucas MacLeod, alongside bassist Gabriel Lagasca, and guitar player vocalist Aidan Desmarais.

In 2017, Flashback self released their debut self titled demo album, and in 2018 came the release of the demo album "Persistence", which showed more evolution from their first recording, in regards to production and songwriting. With a combined 10+ years experience playing and over two years experience performing in Calgary's local scene, Flashback continues to be dedicated to playing local shows, writing new music, and enjoying all there is to enjoy about writing and playing their music.
