The Alright of Spring.

As a particularly dreary Canadian winter concludes like the socially awkward party-goer who suddenly realizes at 4am that he’s overstayed his welcome, it occurs to me that we are a nation titillated by our unencumbered yearning for that ever-elusive promise of spring. The transition is horrendous at first: the snow begins to melt, revealing all of the dog turds and liquefied garbage that had been cryogenically frozen from the months before. Slowly but surely though, the days get longer, and the shorts get shorter. Spring time is electric.

 How about that moment where you optimistically opt to discard your bulky winter coat for a light, sensible leather jacket based on the favourable weather forecast. You’re at the bus stop and you reach into that breast pocket for the first time all season and what do you find? …Oh fuck yeah, brother, it’s a crumpled up 5-dollar bill and a half eaten roll of Mentos. In the moment, these items seem to have the value of a lost Picasso sketch and the missing evidence from a murder case. Thanks, universe! That is nature’s way of saying “Who loves ya, baby?"

As the seasons change, the fellas in Fatality and I have decided to make a few positive changes ourselves. For starters, we finally got a fuckin’ website. I haven’t been this excited since MySpace. Now, I know what you’re all thinking: “Spencer, that’s great and all, but I’m still not convinced that this whole ‘internet’ thing is going to stick around. It could be a fad!” Our bass player Adam Zlotnik would have none of this. That is why when he pitched the idea of getting a great functional website to use as a hub for all of our music, news, and social media, I said “Malarkey! Music fans interact with their favorite musicians one way and one way only, but by the telegraph, of course.” It was in that moment that Adam Zlotnik proceeded to grasp his iPhone 5 in his hand and pistol-whipped me on the head repeatedly while yelling the lyrics to “Video Killed the Radio Star”.

You can find everything Fatality at So take a look and see what you like. Everything’s on there: our tunes, videos, tour dates, photos, podcast, and even this blog! Neato!
New website:

Oh yeah, we are also doing a hometown show opening up for world-renowned thrash legends Destruction on April 12th at the Virgin Mobile Mod Club in Toronto. Joining us will be Krisiun, as well as one of my favorite metal bands in the whole wide world: Exmortus. I have blathered about them at length in previous blogs about getting to know them while we did a string of incredible shows with them across California. We hope one day for their forgiveness for us clogging their toilet with a human Mars Bars and covering their floor with sewage last summer.
So enjoy the spring and be sure to make the most of it… Make love in a garden. Plant a tree. Forgive a foe. Or just embrace the simple joy of peeing comfortably outdoors.
And lose some weight,

The Dead of WinTour

What is it that I love about the East Coast of Canada? Why do I always come running back there with such affection? Could it be the fresh ocean air, the endless hand-rolled cigarettes, or could it be the friendly and accepting atmosphere? There seems to be some sort of pungent energy that clings to the air like that of a great high school party where everyone got laid. It’s that work hard, play harder, get drunk and eat lobster, call in sick to work just to air guitar and masturbate side of the country that I have grown to love and truly respect. Fatality is ecstatic to announce the “Dead of WinTour” which will be taking us from Montreal to Halifax between January 31st and February 8th to help bring a little bit of heat back into the heart of a frozen country.

I have always felt right at home on the East Coast. Any spot that was built on the shoulders of the working class seems to be effortlessly infused with a true character of honesty, hard work and a population that drink like a school of chronically depressed halibut stuck in loveless marriages. It’s a value system that revolves around the importance of keeping your word, the power of a hard day’s work, and a commitment to cherishing friends and family. The pot isn’t bad either.

There is no such thing as getting “too drunk” in the Maritimes. It’s gotten to the point where I once overheard a guy from Nova Scotia describing throwing up as “backwards eating.” This is my kind of place!

I can’t wait to crack a few Pilsners, pile into the tour van and start out on what is to be a bachelor party on wheels filled with great friends, loud music, questionable food choices and undoubtedly a few well earned dry-heaving sessions behind an Arby’s in the mid-afternoon somewhere off the TransCan in New Brunswick. Through all of the decadence we are sure to encounter, we still pledge to play every moment of each set with a great deal of professionalism, intensity and passion in order to fully share our fun loving brand of heavy metal music.

I am getting my Guess Who cassette tapes ready in anticipation for a Canadian winter road trip for the ages. Please be sure to subscribe to the Fatality Podcast and warm up to some audio of great conversations and stories from the road as well as a first hand look at what actually happens inside and outside the tour van on our many adventures.
