"Bushwhacker is a fucking trip. Heavy as fuck, but weirder than the members, and those guys are fucking weird." - Forde
"Dabbling in classic death metal with tinges of black, thrash and psychedelic throughout..." - Gord
"Sounds like old-ISIS and old-BARONESS having a threesome with DEATH and there's cum all over the sheets." - Adam

In an era of over-classified genre taxonomies, it's a breath of fresh air to find a metal band that just makes music. Vancouver's Bushwhacker is one such. Their sound combines influences from many decades, from traditional death and black metal genres to 60s and 70s British prog and psychedelia, and even further to jazz and darker 1800s-era classical. The result is a complex and thoughtful arrangement that both challenges and pleases the ear, defying classification.

August 2013 saw them in the studio at Rain City Recorders, putting the finishing touches on their newest work, a one-song, 20-minute EP called Fish Guy. A shining example of evolution done right, Fish Guy features all the passionate metal fury of their earlier works, while still boiling, now carefully honed into effective, driving riffs and passages, framed and punctuated by evocative, dexterous psychedelic breaks and solos. Classic thrash vocals have expanded into a medley of layered harmonies, eerie growls and epic choruses, carrying lyrics full of ancient nautical superstition.

Though already well-received, Fish Guy is only the beginning. After completing a Cross-Canada Tour, Bushwhacker returned to Rain City Recorders to work on their next project, a full-length album that they hope to release in the spring of 2015.
