Magnetic North started in 2011 as a trio made up of Shawn Gabel (formerly of Vancouver band Batoche), James Marshall (formerly of several Vancouver projects) and Mike Akerman (newly arrived in BC from Nova Scotia).

After a year of playing together and gigging around Vancouver the band recorded their self-titled album. It features the heaviest sounds they were able to muster, complete with layer upon layer of loops and soundscape elements courtesy of Shawn's preposterous guitar and pedal set-up.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- From [ Nadja ] to [ Architecture Of The Universe ] to [ Magnetic North ]. This just keeps getting bigger and better. On a noise / dense and dark atmospheres, ominous, or discordant overtones note [ Magnetic North ] got it all as they focuses on creating a structured melody vibes. The band emphasize on tones and composition that lead to a highly conceptual and experimental in style sound. Even though the band predominantly aim on specific riff and elements such as post-hardcore and sludge-core the entire album is not limited as it takes on various flows.

These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade by Patkus

Somewhere at the intersection of modern classical, ambient, and post-rock, Philadelphia-based guitarist Patkus evokes nostalgia and contemplation through pulsating swirls of melody that pierce through clouds of harmonic distortion. "These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade" is Patkus' third full-length album, building upon the idiosyncratic blend of influences and composition techniques heard on 2015's "Colors." Dedicated to the loss of his beloved grandmother, "These Are But Dreaming Men, Breathe and They Fade" mirrors Patkus' journey from loss to acceptance; a search for catharsis tinged with hope.
