Feeling a bit camera shy


Closed Casket Funeral is a band of five musicians that create music you want to hear. Formed in the early winter of 2003, Closed Casket Funeral (Marc Lajeunese - Vocals, Jeff Pennycook - Guitar, Dustin Black - Guitar, Jer Candusso - Bass, Tyson Taylor - Drums) set out on a path to produce technical, intense, and equally catchy, metal that would later prove itself through the release of the five song demo, "The Script."

Closed Casket Funeral, with a demo to promote for, began to hit many Canadian and American cities to start a chain reaction of show bookings and much deserved respect. After being recognized as a touring band that "has one of the tightest live sets ever witnessed" they all decided to begin more extensive travelling as they began booking their two-week East Coast Canadian tour.

Once back home, they almost immediately started work on their new material which was intended to capture more of the defined sound they sought after, to further separate themselves from the rest. With three, much more powerful, songs under their belt, they decided to enter Sound Foundry Studios (Kingsville, Ontario) to capture these new creations which would quickly be released as an EP entitled, "A Special Thanks to the Man Who Invented the Wheel"

With the release all said and done, they decided their next tour should be to their neighbours of the South, The United States. As they travelled for another two week stint, Americans began welcoming them with much anticipation, based solely on whispers, from the previous nights during the tour, of Closed Casket Funeral's "intense and remarkably tight live set."

When they returned again, it was noticed that the new EP was selling at an alarming rate, and just as they reached the point of selling out of two pressings in one month, Resound Gr!nd Records (Austria) contacted them. Now accompanied by support, Closed Casket Funeral intends to tour much more frequently and with the same, entrancing live performance they are so notorious for.
