In 2004, the members of AlcoholicA met with the world renowned Metallica in Montreal where James Hetfield gladly said: "Thanks for keeping the spirit alive". The following day on Metallica's website, pictures and a video of the event were posted and entitled "Metallica Meets Alcoholica". Two days later, members of the worldwide selling artist Godsmack showed up unexpected at an AlcoholicA show in Quebec City and they were simply astonished to witness the depth, passion and precision of the band's repertoire. That same night, members of the Metallica Road crew including Flemming Rasmussen (who has an evident reputation as engineer and co-producer of Metallica's albums Ride the Lightning (1984) and Master of Puppets (1986)) came to AlcoholicA's show to finish their night off and were all impressively amazed by the show.
Pierre St Jean - Lead Singer Guitarist (HEAVEN'S CRY, NONHUMAN ERA, VOIVOD), Chris Joly - Lead Guitar (brother and guitar player for multi platinum selling disco diva FRANCE JOLI), Jean François Vincenti - Bass (NONHUMAN ERA), founder of the AlcoholicA project and talented Sebastien Dubuc on Drums promise to deliver a show like there's no tomorrow! AlcoholicA will certainly make your night an unparalleled and memorable one!
The Altruist is an upcoming Modern Metal band that mixes a catchy and heavy sound with electronic influences.
Fully formed in November 2017, the band has released the debut Single ‘’Destiny’’ in May 2018 to raise awareness. While we gained some exposure and started playing a few local shows, we’ve been working on a debut EP that is set to release Spring 2019. Its first single ‘’No Guiding Light’’ recently dropped and gives a good overview of what the band is all about (modern tone, moody ambiances, catchy choruses, heavy riffs, synth layers).
