Again, just quick tracks. Get a riff and go with it. Get it written and tracked in a couple of hours. Eric Godin, the bassist with HLR, was the inspiration behind the bass riff from our band practice this morning, plus a huge dash of Gojira influence.

Since ignoring to update this site in such a long time, a lot has happened. The band that I am in, Hero’s Last Rite, released our second album last April. The album is called The Mirror’s Face. On a personal level this album is by far the most rewarding creative endeavour I have done in years.
As we pumped out the album to various webzines, some great reviews started popping up. Also, the album has charted well across Canada and in a few charts it was ranked at number 1. As of this writing, The Mirror’s Face is still charting one year later! We, as a band, are very proud of this album and it recently won the 2015 East Coast Music Association award for Loud Recording of the Year.
As in a previous post, we have been lucky to have made another video with the help of Tim Rayne, Jeff Crawford, Art Thompson and many others. The video is for our song Viral Judgment and it is about the affects of cyber bullying and inspired by the tragic story of Amanda Todd.
Moving forward, the band is currently writing new material for our next release. If you would like to support the band, please check out our Bandcamp page.
After an amazing weekend with Moment of Inertia and 2 Minutes to Maiden. Plus showing our video (successfully) in Fredericton, we are now releasing our video for I Am Atomic to the public. Thanks to all that attended these shows. A big HLR growl to you all!!!!
I Am Atomic was directed by Tim Rayne. We were amazed with Tim and his crew and actors. So a big thank you also goes to Jeff Crawford, Mike Allain, Bunthivy Nou, Tim O’Neill, Rob Gemmell, Arthur Thomson, Nathalie Rayne, Terry Oakes, Karen Ruet, Jack Leblanc, Jacob Leblanc and Alysia LeBlanc. Without their hard work, this would not have happened!!!
Hero’s Last Rite have been nominated for an East Coast Music Association award in the Loud Recording of the Year category.
Here is a live video of one of our new songs.
So we (Hero’s Last Rite) are in the midst of writing new material for our next release. I know we live in a society that, in a large part, doesn’t support bands financially anymore. But if you want to help us out, head to our bandcamp page and show your love. We are also in the works of getting some new shirts printed.
