  • "Atlantic Canada’s metal scene is a curious niche in our cultural cornucopia. If anything, it is tenacious. Its fan are fervent. And while they may be toiling away in the shadows (though perhaps not so quietly), the metal scene has had a near constant presence over the last several decades. Now, one fan and former music promoter is hoping to shed some light on the scene with a Maritime Metal Documentary."
