Winners of the 2019 Wacken Metal Battle Canada competition, Toronto's melodic proggers The Slyde recently represented Canada at the Wacken Metal Battle international final, at Wacken Open Air in Germany. 

Off the heels of their Canadian victory, The Slyde is celebrating 10 years of their melodic prog rock, showcasing highlights from their latest album "Awakening".  The band (formerly known as just Slyde) dropped their ten-track album in 2018, harnessing the intricate, contrapuntal prog metal they've honed over the last decade. Described by critics as "a highly impressive, thunderously powerful, thought provoking collection of songs" and "vigourous and passionate", The Slyde carve their own path and take no prisoners.

In true prog fashion, The Slyde stays true to their mission statement with their quirky arrangements, aggressive edge, and ominous lyrics.  The result is a thought provoking, high-octane brand of prog metal for fans of Rush, Dream Theater, Haken, Coheed and Cambria, and Megadeth.  Driven by Nathan Da Silva’s elegant vocals and passionate guitar work, Sarah Westbrook's virtuosic keyboard skills, and the powerful rhythm section of bassman Alberto Campuzano and drummer Andrew Suarez (with long time drummer/songwriter Brendan Soares), the band grabs the attention of technically minded melodic prog rock and metal fans.

The Slyde has played nearly 200 shows in Canada and abroad, sharing the stage with such bands as Protest The Hero, Down With Webster, Angra, Pain of Salvation, F*ck The Facts, Dana Fuchs, and Timber Timbre among others, and have made past appearances at Ottawa Bluesfest, Canadian Music Week, IndieWeek, and Cornwall Lift-Off.

The band is currently creating new music for an early 2020 release.
