Tonight the Blind Dog (671 Ouellette Ave) will be struck by the Turn That S#!t Up Tour, where the metal will flow and hair will fly.

Windsor’s own Assassinate The Following… headlines, bringing their enthusiasm for performing and playing, with a sound that takes the heavy brutality of Impending Doom, tosses in some of the infectiousness found in For The Fallen Dreams, and a bit of the guitars from Necrophagist to create a show that will have everyone screaming along as they body slam each other to the relentless grind of heavy metal.

These guys are still touring in support of 2009’s “Massacre of the North” that was recorded right here in Windsor at Spectre Sound Studios and is currently seeing worldwide distribution through CDN Records.

In December 2010 a fifth member, full-time vocalist Brandon Kellam was added to the lineup, and their new recording of “I Once Was” proves what a useful addition he has been. With his emphasis on screaming added to what was already coming from Brandon White and Drew Torok, there is an added dimension and depth that helps to push this band to an even higher level than where they already were.

Having in the past toured with Protest The Hero and Abandon All Ships, on their current jaunt through Quebec and Ontario they are joined by a sound like Big Wig on Cephalic Carnage steroids, known as The Jettison Commitment, out of London, Goliath, and We Remain, another Windsor act that leaves me with the distinct aftertase of End, only a bit more synthy. As an addition to the Windsor Date, Hellraiser joins the bill, bringing in their brand of DIY-flavoured metal to the mix.

The Turn That S#!t Up Tour featuring Assassinate the Following…, The Hettison Commitment, Goliath, Hellraiser, and We Remain, at The Blind Dog (671 Ouellette Ave), March 19, 2011, doors at 5:30, all ages, $6 ADV/$10 Door.
