Hamilton, ON Canada (2003 – present)

Threat Signal arose from the filthy, industrialized east end of Hamilton, ON Canada, in late 2003. Threat Signal was formed in the late summer of 2003 by cousins Jon and Rich Howard, who then added the guitarist Kyle McKnight. The trio then found drummer Adam Matthews in early 2004. A , , machine, Threat Signal combines the complexity of Bay Area and European , with a more sound involving rhythms, and musical passages.

Before the band had played a single live show, their home recordings generated significant interest online. The song Rational Eyes hit #1 on the international independent music website and to this day remains in the top 5. This prompted many record labels to take notice, one label in particular fit perfectly with the band’s vision, and in 2005 Threat Signal inked a deal with Nuclear Blast Records.

Threat Signal’s debut album Under Reprisal was recorded with producer Christian Olde Wolbers (Fear Factory / Arkaea). “It’s without a doubt my favorite album of 2006,” Wolbers remarks. “A mix of Strapping Young Lad, Fear Factory, Soilwork… a true Canadian phenomenon!” Veteran mixer Tue Madsen added the final touches to the album and it was released internationally in August 2006. Embraced by fans and critics, although perhaps the most meaningful praise for the album came in the form of the Canadian Recording of the Year award bestowed upon the band in their hometown at the 2006 Hamilton Music Awards.

    I like how the 2005 demo is more groove metal in tone than djent in tone. Gives the demos a different feel, as does the slight reverb/echo to all of the guitar/bass parts. A New Beginning's demo in particular feels very different.

    Их песни в мой плейлист не попадают, хотя довольно хороши и добавил некоторые.

    Награду за убогие тарелки не получали случайно? Группа вообще обычная, что-то среднее между старыми линкин парками и современными In Flames, The Unguided. Ахахах, послушал песню, косяк в вокале услышал, все ясно тут.

    «лучший мужской вокал»? что за бред, и где эта группа? в вк в сообществе 600 человек и особо я ее не чувствую как топовую группу, на ютубе вообще баг, ставишь дислайк за так себе лайв и ставится лайк.

    Currently they are the first band that comes to mind when someone asks me about awesome modern metal music.
