MoSoFEST PREVIEW: Tobeatic is heavy as all hell

Vancouver group mixes monster rock riffs with hardcore fury

Editor’s Note – The following is part 1 of many previews on Ominocity’s upcoming sponsored MoSoFest showcase. Look forward to our ongoing coverage of MoSo.

There is something to be said about bands that take their cues from the classic rock records and in turn make them heavy as hell.

Vancouver’s Tobeatic recently released their full-length album All to Hell, and despite the fury of the delivery, they have included plenty of nods to rock and roll yesteryear.

Recorded and mixed by Jesse Gander at the Hive Studios, prog-esque, organ-fuelled instrumental jams break out throughout the course of the album, which give way to snarly, sludged-out doom punk. Guitar leads similarly stomp and slash throughout.

Still not sold? The artwork for the album features two deer leaping up to high-five over a double-bladed axe. Not sure why they are partying, but All to Hell is a killer soundtrack for boreal keg stands, hairwhips and all things dirty rock.

Check out Tobeatic at Rock the Bottom on Saturday, June 15 at 9pm.

$10 at the door, or free with your MoSoFest Priority Pass (subject to capacity)
