Grab a winter parka and head north with Roots this week for a French-Canadian hyperblast from the most technical metal scene ever known. Reaching back decades to Voivod’s thrash metal, we enter warp drive with Martyr and Obliveon, then knuckle down with tech-death originators Cryptopsy and Gorguts, finally following the pathways as Quebec tech expands to progressive metal and deathcore with bands such as Beyond Creation and Despised Icon. Connaissez votre racines… and know Your Roots!
Explode your head with metal knowledge with brain-blasting books from BAZILLION POINTS.
