June 2011 the embryo of HELLCHAMBER was conceived. It was the brain child of bassist James Dean Eckert , guitarist Tyler Kinakin and vocalist Shane Stone. After months of searching for a second guitarist, they found their man in November 2011 when Blake Charlton answered a Craig's List ad. In February 2012 the next piece of the puzzle fell into place when Jeremy Hora guitarist of Default recommended drummer Barry Branigan for the job on the skins. June of 2012 Hellchamber recorded and released their debut self titled 3 song EP and proceeded to take the Vancouver bar scene by storm. In November of 2013 Hellchamber released their first full length album "The Right to Remain" with killer riffs , thundering rhythms and bad ass songs. In February 2016 Hellchamber officially announced Garth Allen former vocalist of Flybanger/Jar as their new front man after performing as direct support for Act Of Defiance. Hellchamber is currently performing and writing new material with plans of releasing a new EP by the end of 2016.
Hellchamber has shared the stage with Act Of Defiance, Primal Fear, Into Eternity, Untimely Demise, West of Hell, Jar, City Of Fire
Apprentice was born in the spring of 2011 in Calgary by founder Joey Hockin. After years of trying to get Apprentice off the ground Joey moved to Vancouver in September of 2014 to begin searching for musicians there. The lineup was quickly assembled with Chris Lock on drums, Gerald Leong on bass, Cody Henderson on Vocals and Kevin Zecchel on guitar. After playing their first show in April of 2015 they have had the opportunity of sharing the stage with Melo-Death phenoms Kalmah as well as City Of Fire, Into Eternity, Kobra and the Lotus and dozens of other awesome bands. After a few line up changes over the course of several months, Apprentice has solidified its current line up with guitarist Dylan Wijdenes-Charles, Drummer Ryen Spooner and Bassist Jon Power. 2016 is looking very promising for Apprentice as they are quickly approaching the release of their debut EP and preparing for a western Canada tour in early September.
