"Putting its pedal to the metal"

Local rock outfit In Transformation has found a fitting place for its hard-rocking tunes: a computer racing simulator
Jared Story

Rock 'n' roll + fast cars = the perfect combo. Local hard rockers In Transformation are well aware that motorsports and metal are made for each other. The band's song Redline is featured on North American Grand Touring, a game for the computer racing simulator rFactor.

"I race a lot online," says Dave Thiessen, In Transformation's vocalist, who is joined in the band by drummer Garry Moir, guitarist Kevin Szarkiewitcz and bassist Dave Proulx. "It started as a hobby and it turned into sort of a lifestyle. I got to know a lot of people in the Sim community. It's ridiculous how big it is. When I found The US Pits, they were advertising looking for music. I sent them something brand new and they were all over it."

Sticking to the speedway, In Transformation has also been featured on the Australian race radio show, Live Race Call, as well as on the N-er-G Hour, a live call-in NASCAR show on 95.7 The Wolf in Fredericton, N.B. All this auto talk makes sense as In Transformation play pedal-to-the-metal, full-throttle rock that is shaped by a variety of influences.

"I grew up with Mötley Crüe, Judas Priest, Kiss," Thiessen, 35, says. "Then, in my 20s, it was Tool, Rage Against the Machine and Pearl Jam. Kevin, he's 23, and he's throwing stuff like Bullet for my Valentine and Thrice at me. So I'm taking what I learned from Eddie Vedder, Gord Downie and all those guys and trying to apply it to his new style of guitar playing. It gives us a little different sound in that way."

Formed in 2006, In Transformation's recording history is summed up by a two- song self-released EP and two online singles, which can be heard at the band's MySpace page: Thiessen says the band is in the midst of recording six more songs, all of which will be played at the band's upcoming gig, Saturday at Wise Guy's.

"We have this new stuff and I really want people to hear it," Thiessen says. "We've been sitting on these four songs that I really don't think are the best we have. I'm excited because the new stuff is turning out really good and it'll show a whole other side of us." - UPTOWN Magazine-Sept 25/08

-In Transformation took form in the summer of 2006. Perseverance, experience and dedication quickly brought them some much deserved attention. Influenced by a wide range of various artists they bring a welcomed sound to their listeners. In Transformation combines a solid rhythm and striking guitars against a full throttle vocal attack that holds you close with great range, energy and emotion. 
The release of the album “End of Creation”  showcased this very talented and distinct group of individuals. The album contains a mixture of different material written over the last few years allowing them to claim their stake as marketable song writers. From the subtle yet catchy aggressive tones in “Victims of Circumstance” to the high energy oddity that is “Dead Soldier” the band is very unique in their writing style allowing them to continue to build a variety of loyal listeners of all ages. In a short time the band has managed to secure healthy licensing deals and song placements over a global online network of digital and social media throughout North America, Europe and Australia. The band believes in longevity and persistence and will continue to work hard to achieve long term goals.
