“I am so scared of this…but that’s good.” – Bob Ezrin
“Think a 3 piece Mr. Bungle with Patton’s vocals taking a turn for the better, add some laser beams and dreads, turn it all up to eleven, stand the fuck back and enjoy.” – Ground Report , NYC
“Pay attention Canadian recording industry, Ninjaspy is on the rise and the people’s salvation is at hand.” -Absolute Underground Magazine
“Soaring vocal harmonies are there one minute and replaced with a throaty growl the next. “Pure Sketch” is a sure-fire modern rock radio hit, as the post-grunge frame work gets stirred up into a tasty seventies inspired soul/funk soup”. – Metal-Rules.com
“Bloody well are entertaining. All dreadlocks and fricking samurai swords, giant pants and flying limbs. Not a speck of the stage was left untouched by this band’s chaotic feet.” – Cord Magazine
“The album itself is a blend of Hardcore, Punk, Ska, Rock & Metal, a recipe for brilliance. I urge everyone to check out this band, you may just re-evaluate your existence” – Infinitybasement
Ninjaspy arose with the dawn of the year of six, embodied by the Triad in Blood: Vocalist/Guitarist Joel Parent, Drummer Adam Parent and Bassist Tim Parent. Rising above the mire of their faceless six year muse, they have focused their sights on the mission objectives now at hand: Swift, surgical amalgamation of a spectrum of styles and the subsequent eradication of narrow mindedness. Advocating total freedom of expression and infiltrating every earthen sinew in their chosen path in order to stay grounded and facilitate real connections with others; interactions that are crucial for a meaningful human existence. In correlation with a commitment to people before all else, support for Ninjaspy has grown with every show, every tour and every industry contact.
With the help of prolific producers, GGGarth Richardson and Ben Kaplan, they entered the next level of their career, releasing their debut cd πature (Pi Nature) in the fall of 2007. Ever reworking new ideas to their utmost potential, 2013 saw the release of the follow-up multi-media EP/Graphic Novella “NINJASPY NO KATA” with production by the same team of producers.
Equipped and, indeed, armed with their own musical weaponry, (a derivation of hardcore, ska, grunge, reggae, funk and more) Ninjaspy aim to engage people with radical ideas on a level plane. And above all else, to reiterate to people over and again, the importance of victory in the eternal conflict with the skank; the vicious and relentless evil that lives in every human being. The skank that is overcome each time Ninjaspy has the honour of sharing their crafts with people in a live environment, where dancing destroys the enemy. The enemy whose defeat is apparent as one witnesses the total freedom felt at every show by the people in the pit who rise up to throw the skank down.

Nothing is ever left behind in a BREACHED performance as the loud rocking, heavy amp cranking band announce Toronto show dates since performing last October at Indie Week.
February 7th will see the band join Blind Race, Asleep Behind the Flame, Bike Thiefs at the Bovine Sex Club for an ear bursting assault of infectious melodic rock, then later that month on February 28th, the band will be stripping down (not in the nude) to an acoustic set at Drum n’ Flats where they will be joined by the Waxmen and guests.
Feb 7, 2014 – Toronto, ON – Bovine Sex Club w/Blind Race, Asleep Behind the Flame, Bike Thiefs – $8 (Breached set at Midnight) – Event Page
Feb 28, 2014 – Toronto, ON – Drum n Flats – w/ WAXMEN and guests (Acoustic show)
BREACHED‘S EP ‘Left Behind’ was released on October 22nd and was recorded in between Canadian and US dates during the spring and summer months of 2013 while the band toured to promote their second EP ‘Revolution Sessions’, an acoustic version of their debut EP with a bonus stripped down cover of Alice In Chains’ ‘No Excuses’, which was also joined by a series of in-studio music videos.
Creating an alluring blend of melodious, metal-tinged rock ‘n roll, it didn’t take long for Breached to start winning over fans with their live shows and five-song self-titled EP. The band’s tight harmonies and nail-hitting screams combined with overdriven guitars, intricate tempos and powerful lyrics provide a unique blend that audiences can’t seem to get enough of.

Track Listing: Left Behind
1. Left Behind (4:04)
2. Piece By Piece (2:59)
3. All We Need (3:09)
4. Brighter Days (3:51)
5. Here With Me (3:17)
Total Time: 17:20
“The Left Behind EP, is the latest offering from Canadian hard rockers Breached, and man it is quite impressive…Disc opener, “Left Behind”, works off a killer riff and features overdriven guitars and a captivating chorus which led me to be immediately sucked into the EP. The remaining four songs follow suit and are solid hard rock tunes in their own right, but at only 17 minutes long, I found this EP to be a bit of a tease.” – Pure Grain Audio
“Breached really delivers on the goal of making emotionally charged music. Vocalist Bobby Noakes has an incredibly powerful voice as it soars over the heavy distortion-laden guitars and precise explosions of the rhythm section.” – Rock Freaks
“a hugely enjoyable miniature peek into the potentially huge future which lies ahead of this quartet.” – Planet Mosh
““Left Behind” is well-structured, well-written and well-executed in every way! The band consists of 4 incredibly talented musicians: Bobby Noakes (Vocals), Mike Diesel (Guitar), Ryan Alexander (Bass) and Neil Uppal (Drums). You can tell, just from listening to a few seconds of their music, that they are masters of their crafts!” – New-Transcendence
The title track had me singing along on my second listen and swaying along to the chorus, before launching into Piece By Piece with a more upbeat, punky sound with a few good screams mixed in, and the feel continues with All We Need. The passion that has gone into the writing and production is evident, and when the tempo drops for the next track, that energy is transferred to a different frequency and you really feel the lyrics of Brighter Days. This is for me where the vocal talent of Bobby Noakes shines the most, a real arms in the air song.” – Wyrd Ways
The Canadian lads of BREACHED are quite an interesting band. Their songs caught my heart with their melodic and easy to listen attributes. You can of course label them, but I think that it wouldn’t be wise. Noakes has fantastic voice and show a great promise. Any Rock fan or Metalhead should grab this one, this much more than to the open minded.“ – Metal Temple

About: Hailing from Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, Deathpoint is a melodic groove metal band with a passion for persistence. What started out in bassist Brad Gold’s basement in 2005 when he was barely thirteen years old alongside childhood friend Cameron White on guitar, the band steadily grew into something promising. Drummer Mike Labate was introduced to the band by guitarist David Johnson. David left the band shortly after, leaving the trio of Brad, Cameron and Mike as an instrumental progressive metal band. Searching for a vocalist via Kijiji, Jonnie Barr was the next addition to the line-up. Deathpoint’s first show was in late 2007, and began playing regularly in the local scene. The desire for a second guitarist became apparent for harmonies and rhythms, and Mike Paling stood up to the task. Paling only stayed with the band for a very short period of time before they parted ways, leading to the addition of his replacement, Henry Joldersma – a high school friend of drummer Mike Labate.
Deathpoint released their debut album “Fixation” on May 7th 2010 and immediately began playing more shows alongside bands such as Threat Signal, Quo Vadis, The Agonist, Divine Heresy, and Moonspell. Shortly after “Fixation” was released, Cam White and Deathpoint parted ways due to a difference of priorities; with a very promising career ahead of him, White chose to pursue his education in computer engineering at the University of Waterloo. The band placed an ad on Kijiji once again, this time seeking a guitarist. Tim Ross responded, and it was clear he was man for the job. Brad, Mike, Henry, Jonnie and Tim released the band’s EP “Suffer” in August 2011.
The writing process for “Sinister” began within six months of releasing “Suffer,” and by August 2012 they began recording the new album. Jonnie Barr suffered a vocal cord injury which prevented him from performing and recording vocals, and Deathpoint decided it was time move on in another direction. The split was amicable in nature, as Jonnie was very understanding of the band’s desire to take the next step in driving forward. Jonnie and Deathpoint are still the best of friends; business did not get in the way of their strong brotherly bond. Frantically searching for a new vocalist to appear on the album, Tom Emmans of Odium offered his service for hire. After hearing the instrumental tracks and realizing the potential of what could be in store for Deathpoint, he immediately decided to join full-time.
