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.

Review for the new EP "I Wanna Be Exploited" by Tommy Red

A combination of retro aesthetics, enduring lyrics and alt-rock grit. The best music happens when artists refuse to remain stuck in their own comfort zones and creative boxes. Whenever this happens, they are free to give full range to their vision, and they can really come up with something that’s groundbreaking and personable. This is certainly the case here with Tommy Red and his brand new EP release, “I Wanna Be Exploited.”
