Quebec is a province increasingly known for its killer metal bands. Groups such as Blackguard, The Agonist, Derelict, and Endast have risen from this part of French Canada each making a significant name for themselves within our growing loud music scene. Newly-formed metal act BornBroken could now also possibly join the ranks of these such bands affirming once again why Quebec is the place for metal! Read the rest of this entry
