METAL/PUNK: Alternative Metal, ROCK: Progressive Rock

Inner Surge is an intense, politically and emotionally charged metal/rock band from Calgary, Canada. The band has been described as "one of the best imports that Canada has to offer" by RWS Magazine. With an eclectic, intense approach, the band fuses metal, rock, punk, hardcore and progressive influences. As opposed to conforming to the ''meathead'' mentality of heavy metal and hard rock, Inner Surge''s energy is focused on breaking those stereotypes down, and pushing boundaries, both lyrically and musically.

The band was formed in 2001 by Steve Moore, who wrote and recorded the debut album "Solus Verum", a 16-track epic with an intensely personal lyrical approach. The next album "Matrika", was released to excellent reviews. Space Junkies Magazine gave it 10+ out of 10, while Bands United described it as "Disturbingly fresh". The album has been critically acclaimed and has earned them positive reviews in many magazines & websites. Inner Surge''s "Matrika" also made https://www.tradebit.com''s "Top 10 of 2004" list and was re-released in 2006 by Cyclone Records and is available through Napster and Sony Connect.

Inner Surge has played many shows such as Warped Tour 2006 at Race City Speedway alongside Helmet and Underoath, the "Rock against Racism 2002 and 2005" concerts in Calgary, the annual CJSW 90.9 Metal Fundraiser and the Southern Alberta Hardcore & Metal Festival alongside acts such as Into Eternity and Caveat. The band has also organized it''s own benefit concerts for charities such as Operation Eyesight Universal and the Evan Shaw Foundation.

Inner Surge is also featured on the Paladin Pictures film score for "Rebellion of Thought", which debuted to a sold out audience at the Virginia Film Festival. Phat Mountain Film''s most recent DVD release "Divided Aggression" features 4 of the band''s songs as well.

Inner Surge''s music video for "Retribution Song" explores the band''s political views and was partially inspired by the largely ignored Uzbekistan massacre as well as the Zapatista''s(EZLN). The video is available at Google video, https://www.tradebit.com, https://www.tradebit.com and https://www.tradebit.com for download.

Inner Surge''s newest album is the critically acclaimed and groundbreaking "Signals Screaming", an 11 track assault on human rights abuses and what the band sees as the international "blind eye". Released April 1 2006 through Cyclone Records, the album has been well received by both fans and music critics. "Signals Screaming" is being hailed as "one of the most essential metal albums of the year" from "one of Canada''s most promising and most modern-sounding metal bands out there today." The lyrics cover themes such as the 1994 Rwandan genocide in "Wolves", the massacre of peaceful protesters in Uzbekistan in 2005 in "Retribution Song", the repression of the FDA in "No Profit in the Cure", and what the band describes as "self serving corporate groups on the road to destroying themselves". https://www.tradebit.com says "Signals Screaming is a battering-ram of an album that is impressive and powerful, both in sound and in message. Delivered through a screaming fury along with sung words that are weighted with disdain, the force of its lyrics is impossible to shut out."

Inner Surge''s intense and honest sound has given the band a fast-growing following, and with plans for a new album on the horizon, the word is sure to spread.
