Formed when three Newfoundlanders crossed paths in the Canadian heavy metal capital with Ahmed Saad who hails from the Middle East, the injection of music immediately began to flow through their veins and M.E.C.H. metal was soon born.
“It stands for Middle East Coast Heavy Metal; Our drummer being from the Middle East and the rest of the members being from the east coast of Canada,” explains Stephen Reynolds (bass, vocals). ‘Every single person in this band is a songwriter, so the songs come out with their own feel and develop naturally.’ continues Reynolds. ‘We don’t shackle ourselves to any kind of focused idea, which brings about a sort of honesty in the music not often found in metal.’
Wacken Metal Battle Canada champions MUTANK have posted a new video from their recent jam session, which includes a new track called ‘ Channel Change’ that can be heard at the following link:
The band commented the following on their facebook band page:
“For a Tank Mu we got together and made a new jam vid in the tank. New song included called Channel Change. Check Steve-out’s radical bass riffage, and Steve-in’s debut behind the mic. Come hear Channel Change and another brand new song on Friday night at L’alizè with Lich King and Trainwreck Architect and Reanimator. Say goodbye before we leave for Germany!!!”
