Kenny Coull is a founding member of Ontario Deathcore band In The Act Of Violence. Having to differentiate their sound from other bands, a unique sound is a must have. Read on for insight into how the Digitech Whammy pedal does just that and more.

What one piece of equipment do you use to obtain your signature sound?
Kenny: My DigiTech Whammy.

What about it makes it so important to you?
Kenny: It adds so much more range to my sound and over all guitar tones in select parts for songs we have.
What are the major pros and cons?
Kenny: Range in tones, something different that not many bands use, easy to use, and built to last through World War 54.

How long have you used this piece of equipment and would you ever change it?
Kenny: I have used this for over a year now. I love it and would never change it. If it breaks down on me one day I'll go buy another one the next day.

Any final thoughts or comments on the gear?
Kenny: Buy one, they're a lot of fun for jamming either in your room by yourself while you learn guitar or if your in a touring band looking to give the band a new sound. - Chee Kam

Yesterday, The Poor Alex Theatre threw a great death metal/grindcore party! No less than 10 bands stepped up on stage to show the audience what they were about. Headlining this metal fest were Waking The Cadaver from New Jersey and Ontario's very own In The Act Of Violence.

The setting changed from a couple of kids hanging out to a true metal party when Breaking The Archetype stepped on stage and kick-started the festivities. I The Destroyer did a good job maintaining the positive mood of the young crowd, especially during their popular sing-along song ”Bludgeoned, Beaten, Raped and Eaten.”

A quick note to all the parents

If your kids don't get enough exercise and you think they lack a healthy hobby, buy them a ticket to the next In The Act Of Violence show. This Bowmanville-based band ignited a genuine acrobatics/hardcore two-step show-down at The Poor Alex Theatre.

After all that exercise, including a few rounds of running in the circle pit, the crowd was clearly growing tired, before Waking The Cadaver stepped on stage. However, the New Jersey band made the boys and girls of Toronto squeeze out their last gasp of air in several well-attended circle pits.

Waking the Cadaver's performance

The band's bassist had been arrested for a DUI prior to the show, but Waking The Cadaver had a great attitude and rocked the stage with a highly unusual grindcore/death metal line-up; two guitars, a drummer, one vocalist and no bass.

The show was well received by the audience and the mood reached its climax during ”Blood Splattered Satisfaction” off the band's first demo from 2006.

At the end of their show Waking The Cadaver was pressured to do ”one more song,” by a cheerful audience, before which lead-singer Don Campan yelled, ”U.S. is f***ing weak! Canada f***ing rocks! Canada has a f***ing great metal scene!”
