CEMR was developed on the idea of supporting Canadian metal via an online station. We want to expand our community by offering events to bring them and our Underground Metal scene together!
Banding together this year with Voxx Promotions and The Forge, CEMR have put together a delectable bill of various genres of metal that are assured to keep you on your feet in hopes of the end result of this weekend being a severe bangover and tons of amazing memories.
Without further adieu, CEMR is proud to present to you…

Planet Eater (Regina, SK)
Planet Eater hails from the western region of Canada in Regina, Saskatchewan. Living in the middle of a giant expanse of desolate land, the seasons are extreme and the living conditions harsh. The cold, dark months of the long winter sets the stage for five brothers to craft a brutal and harsh sound patiently tempered into the sound of Planet Eater. With no preconceptions of success or riches they write music that they want to hear, that remind them of the bands that once walked the earth and breathed the fire of metal into their minds. Canadian greats such as Strapping Young Lad and Katakylsm are blended with international legends, Gojira, Red Fang, Meshuggah, Converge and Morbid Angel to name a few. Planet Eater strives to play a tight heavy set and to have a visually exciting performance at all times. Their first release was a six song EP in October of 2014, which has been met with intriguing amount of international acclaim. Planet Eater looks forward to 2017 with festivals, shows and a full length album in the works. Join the hordes in support of one of Canada's newest death thrash bands.
All hail Lord Nekron, eater of planets.
