PROTOKULT Celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday With “Oy Kanada’ Video Premiere On Bravewords.com
Toronto’s PROTOKULT returns to unleash their long-awaited music video “Oy Kanada” in celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday with a premiere on Bravewords.com. The folk-thrasher is a take on the Canadian national anthem and a video concept that tips its hat to the diverse multicultural metal community throughout the land.
The band comments:
“This is who we are and where we live and it’s a mighty fine time and place to show love for metal, this is our Canada! and yes, our beer is better than yours!”
Fearlessly fusing metal sub-genres, “Oy Kanada” marks the return of PROTOKULT to the front line after unleashing their third studio recording and 2014 album “No Beer In Heaven”, a release that’s an adventurous, heavy and experimental trek, diving into themes of drinking, history and human endeavor.
PROTOKULT Premiere New Canadian Anthem ‘Oy Kanada’ via Metal-Rules
Emerging from the vast Canadian wilderness with a ravenous thirst for beer and metal, PROTOKULT, the Eastern European transplants now residing in Toronto, ON are teaming up with Metal-Rules.com for the exclusive premiere of their new single ‘Oy Kanada’.
The band comments:
“Oy Kanada, is a power-folk thrasher that commands headbanging, pillaging and raising a round of the finest Canadian craft beer!. This is our take on a new Canadian metal national anthem: Our beer is better than yours! And tonight…Canadians rule!”

NORTHERN DARKNESS Issue IV features a face to face interview with BEHEMOTH bassist Orion, and also JB and Ludwig of GRAND MAGUS. (Both interviews took place back stage at their Manchester show – December 2014)
Other bands interviewed are Sheffield’s black metal titans FORNEUS, the amazing ETHEREAL FOREST, and some truly sickening underground gems in the black and death metal world, GRIMACE and SIRHK. More great bands interviewed include… Canadian thrashers Mutank, the UK’s own crusty death dealers Winds of Genocide and my favourite doom band right now, Uncoffined. Plus… Pale Mist, Protokult, Barshasketh, Gol, Live Burial, Iron Void, Resuscitation, Septekh, Misty Morning, Ethereal, and Kever.
PLUS, a memorial for the departed stoner doomsters MOONLESS and a shed load of reviews…
I’ve also included a little scene report on some up and coming Norwegian black metal bands. Might be interesting.
Also making a return is BLURGH the Cat, everyone’s favourite black metal kitty comic strip!
