Good ol’ school heavy metal, metalcore, black metal, post-hardcore or whatever floats your metal super tanker – you will find it in Toronto in December.
Blacktooth Entertainment invites you to start December with quality Canadian heavy metal at the Hard Luck Bar, 772a Dundas St. West. December 2nd, Blacktooth Entertainment is throwing a release party for Montreal-based Joe Thrasher as Joe Thrasher will be releasing the band’s new full length album “Cries of War.” On stage Joe Thrasher will be joined by co-headlining Ash Lee Blade, Halifax-based Sanktuary, Possessed Steel, F.A.F. and Lethal Voltage.
