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.

NAAL is an eclectic music project led by Chicago composer Dave Mantel. This talented musician has a true passion for great melodies and haunting musical textures. His blend of ambient, shoegaze and experimental drone music feels personal and unique, echoing the work of artists such as Slowdive, Boards of Canada or Sigur Ros, just to mention a few.
