Hey Metal Heads!
Welcome to our headbanging newsletter. We’re glad to hear from all of you and proud to bring Canadian Metal from across the provinces and territories to you.
In the news from H.M.M.A.C.
Bands Nominated were the following:
H.M.M.A.C. and Loudtrax.com will be presentingCanuck Metal Volume 2 in the coming weeks. We would like to thank all the bands who submitted their tracks. We can’t promise all will be selected for this next compilation as we were overwhelmed by the initiative of so many to send us their metal tunes, but will consider them for Canuck Metal Vol. 3 to be released this fall.
Free download of Canuck Metal Vol.1 is currently available at the following link here. Promo code = HMMAC
Check out these spotlighted bands.
If you are an artist or member of a group and would like to be featured in our spotlight, please send us your band’s information, as well as any relevant links (Myspace, music video, etc) so we may showcase your work in our newsletters and our Youtube channel.

ERRATUM: We apologize to Marty DePietro and Fivebyfive Records for the error that slipped in our April Newsletter about ownership of the Label. The Article should have read: Fivebyfive Records, based in Sudbury, ON and headed by Marty DePietro is becoming completely independent from Umbrella Label OMERTA. They have just signed Brooklyn’s (N.Y.) “As Judgement Day Approaches”, bringing their roster to 20 bands around the world and growing.
