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 Triad by Groundburst

GroundBurst is an instrumental rock trio whose sound strikes for the band’s kaleidoscopic approach and wide-open mindset. The band consists of Phil, Si, and Erik, respectively on guitars, bass & keys, and drums. These three talented musicians set out to create a lush, diverse and textural musical backdrop, borrowing from influences as diverse as electronic music, psychedelia, rock and even jazz with a minimalistic flair. Their recent release, “Triad” is an EP featuring 3 original compositions, as the title of the release might lead you to guess!
