Technical death metal band Archspire nominated for metal/hard music album of the year.
A technical death metal band started by a drummer who grew up in Oak Bay, has received a Juno nomination for metal/hard music album of the year.
"It's pretty mind-blowing for us to be nominated considering the genre of music we play. It's pretty extreme music," said Spencer Prewett, Archspire's drummer and founder. "It's not anything that ever comes up on the mainstream radar so we never dreamed that we would be recognized by the Canadian government."
Archspire, currently back in Canada for three weeks in between their European tour and upcoming Japan and U.S. tour, played two shows on Vancouver Island this past weekend.
