"Canada is great, itís all our home country so this is home for us. There are tons of Canadian bands that have influenced us, and of course, not all of them are metal." 

1. SLUDGEHAMMER is a pretty young band with just one demo released. Tell us a bit about the early days of the band and any difficulties you found in establishing yourselves in the Canadian scene.

Well the full lineup of Sludgehammer will have been around for a year this May 2014, so ya itís still a young band. We are still growing as a band and defining our sound. The DEMO was written fairly quickly once we were all together, so it was exciting for us to get it out there as soon as possible. We recorded it ourselves in Danís apartment which helped the raw/heavy feel we were going for. Everybody came together and worked hard on their parts, we knew we starting something pretty cool when we were done. As far as the scene goes, I think itís hard if your ANY new band starting out, thatís expected though. Venues and fans are starting to getting to know us now so itís becoming less hard to book shows and get people out!

2. However your evolution seems to have been pretty active, you are going to take part on The Wacken Metal Battle and also preparing a brand new rec ording. What have been your greatest achievements and downfalls?

The Wacken Metal Battle is a great experience for us . Lots of metalheads in the same room just having a great time. If you bring it come showtime and light the place up then you should walk out of there with some fans! Our biggest achievement right now has to be getting this lineup together. We knew we needed a fast, hard hitting and technically gifted drummer, who was also capable of keeping the groove. A vocalist who can bring energy and emotion to the growling parts while also writing great lyrics, which is an underrated point that many donít look for. A Guitarist who can write a lot of riffs and play leads, both of which need to sound original and need to be executed live. We needed a bassist who could play up and down the fretboard as well as contribute to writing and bringing a high octane live performance. Not to mention!...we all needed to be able to stand the sight of each other for more than 5 minutes ha ha. So with Chris, Jeff, Fernando and Dan in the mix we definitely achieved a solid lineup.

3. Talking about your next release, this is going to be an EP right?? How is going with the recordings? Any interesting details you would like to share with us?


We just finished pre production on the new EP, we are extremely excited about it. The title of it will be Organ Harvester and it will be have six brand new tracks. Itís definitely going to be a step up in songwriting and production from the DEMO as more time and money is going into it. Expect it to be a wild ride when you listen to it! For the most part its way heavier and darker but there are some parts where the listener will be surprised. We might even introduce different vocal elementsÖÖ. We hit the studio in April!

4. How would you describe SLUDGEHAMMER in live? Where does the band feels the best to you, in rehearsal, studio or live?

Sludgehammer live is an outpouring of energy, plain and simple. For us by the end of the set we can barely breathe, which we hope indicates we put a lot of ourselves into the show. We hope that anyone that comes out to see us we put on a entertaining set for, because thatís really one of our main jobís and the band does feel itís best when its performing. Although we do also LOVE writing songs, recording and rehearsing as well.

5. Canada is characterized for hosting a big amount of good and talented bands. Whatīs your thoughts on this and do you think itīs a favourable you comes from this country?

Canada is great, itís all our home country so this is home for us. There are tons of Canadian bands that have influenced us, and of course, not all of them are metal. Where we are, in Toronto is probably one the best places for metal in Canada, the other one I could think of would be Montreal. Not sure how favorable or unfavorable it is to come from Canada looking to get established in the metal world, Europe and US are also great, but here where we are everybody has a blast hanging out, playing shows, going to shows, all that stuff and there are A LOT of us!

6. And how are you guys getting alone in private life? Do you hang out as a band or also as friends? Do you think its important to always be friends first and then a band mates?

We are all friends, which is good. It helps everything involved with being in band go smooth if everybody is on good terms. We also eat a lot of burritos which helps fuel our creativity and our intestinal tracts!

7. Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions, If you have anything to say to your, do go ahead!
