It has been quite a long time since I deeply listened to some Rock that really impressed me, let alone local. A close friend of mine had told me that old High School buddies from New West had released some material under the name “Hillfolk” so once I got home I found one of them on Facebook and there it was. All of the members in this band are talented musicians so I was not surprised to find myself replaying the 3 tracks they’ve put out so far. The wide range of influences that they have completely shows in each track with “Out Of Touch” being a heavier riff based rock song while “Horizons” has a more relaxed and psychedelic feel. The most recent song was the track that had me at awe, this beautifully written song starts slow but picks up heavily and leads you to an amazing guitar solo that tops it all off. These guys don’t just want you to listen but take you on a ride with several different styles of music into one song. “Progressive/Psychedelic Adventure Rock” is definitely what i’d call the material they have out now but I wouldn’t go as far as keeping them under that label. You can stream the 3 songs that Hillfolk has released so far below or download them on their Bandcamp. The band is also currently looking for a drummer so if you think you’ve got what it takes to lay it down hit em’ up!

Black Wizard are a local phenomenon. They make delightfully heavy rock that Ozzy Osbourne would definitely raise a devil horn to.
I don’t think it’s a coincidence that their two bandcamp releases are from the first two months of the year. Vancouver is as bleak as it gets in the thick of the rainy season. Everyone on facebook gets mad at each other over trivial things and people off themselves from a lack of sunlight.
More Black Whizz at their bandcamp.

Picture a bunch of smelly heavy metal headbangers rubbing sholders, waving their hair around, raving hard on E and kissing one another.
