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.
