NO OPERATOR

No Operator is a five-piece Rock/Metal band from Vancouver Island. Their sound blends heavy, intricate riffs with melodic vocals, and an extreme commitment to writing great original music. No Operator pride themselves in being a true rock band: doing both electric and acoustic performances; using no backing tracks, samples, or metronome; and using 100% real instruments in the studio. After three years of steady gigging; sharing the stage with the likes of Protest the Hero and Incura; No Operator released their debut album “Weather and War” in August 2012. In 2013, No Operator performed 29 times, expanded their line-up to a five-piece, recorded singles “State Your Allegiance” and “Sitka”, were featured on Shaw TV, won a “Stelly Award” for Album of the Year, and received their first airplay on commercial radio (99.3 the Fox, 106.9 the Wolf). With 2014 shaping up to be their biggest year yet, No Operator promise great things to come.

STATE YOUR ALLEGIANCE http://www.reverbnation.com/nooperator/song/20021525-state-your-allegiance

When a track like this starts these days I usually expect to hear screamo vocals but, to my pleasant surprise, the very melodic voice of TJ Muhl adds melodrama to the hard-hitting drums and guitars on show.!! It all adds up to a breath of fresh air from this talented band.STATE YOUR ALLEGIANCE is a very commercial metal track you have to check out.

CREPITUS http://www.reverbnation.com/nooperator/song/20021640-crepitus

Great guitar interplay kicks this rocker off and never lets up as Muhl again leads the line with some fine vocals.

great guitar solo too.

SITKA http://www.reverbnation.com/nooperator/song/20021622-sitka

Very nice melodic intro of clean guitars and tasty production.It takes off halfway through to finish as a great power-ballad.

In a world of metal-clone bands, NO OPERATOR stand out as one of the must see/hear bands this year !!!!

“BLOWSIGHT”

Description

Sweden has always been a guarantee for the export of epic Pop melodies and famous rock-bands. However, this rarely combined in one band. Blowsight have internalized the essence of both worlds.With no fear and always with a tongue-in-cheek attitude the band maneuvers through all facets and colors of modern rock music. Even in reflective moments they maintain a touch of lightness. Despite all diversity, Blowsight always put the fun in music first and they never stop short at playfully crazy ideas to show it off.

Fresh, melodic and powerful! This is rock, who’s beat is not only the heartbeat of zeitgeist, but mainly convinces listeners with sophisticated songwriting. This is music that works – on small or big stages.

Nick Red (lead vocals/guitar), Seb (guitar/vocals), Mao (bass/vocals), Fabz (drums/vocals)
Sounds Like: 30 Seconds to Mars, Trivium, My Chemical Romance, Bullet for My Valentine, Foo Fighters

Big dirty guitars combine Nickleback style rocking at its heaviest with big catchy choruses with beautiful chord changes to perk the interest and a quirky guitar solo !! Niiiccceee.
MAGIC EIGHT BALL
Almost Classical music intro segues into powerful drums n guitars.
It’s great to hear modern power with inherent melody and top class production.
Lots of musical twists and turns keep the listener on their toes.
LIVE DIE SURRENDER
Theatrical guitar start pounds hard into an uptempo rocker again with great vocal melodies
very exciting and inventive guitar solo, keeps you guessing as the song drops to lush vocal harmonies before smashing back into the power chords again.
Shit these guys are good !!!!!!
OVER THE SURFACE
Another ear-catching intro of modern keys lulls you into a great power ballad with killer melodies once more.This band don’t sit on tired old sounds and chords, they are always looking to try something different. MUST BE A SWEDISH THING !! AND I LOVE IT !!!!
