Assimilation - Death/Thrash - 215 Hits


Jesse Jardine, the founding member, started the band in 2011 as the grind variant, Ceaseless Discharge. It was a more death grind focused version of what would later come to be Assimilation years later. With Kyden McCormick on Drums, Ben Molavi on guitar, Lane Sabine on bass and Barry Butler on vocals. Shortly after their first show their vocalist left town. Then there was complications with their bass player. Next Ben moved to Los Angeles. This left Jesse and Kyden the last two remaining members. Jesse decided to re-name the band, take over vocal duties, and do what he originally wanted to do, old school death metal meets old school thrash.

After about a year of jamming and writing new material Rene Wilkinson, from local thrash kings Terrifier, was recruited on lead guitar. Shortly after Zakk Garrett was recruited on bass. A few shows were played with this lineup before Kyden moved on to focus on his main band, Ogroem. Stephen Shaw, from local death metal masters, Sinned, was recruited on drums.

With this new lineup the band went in to record their debut EP, Apotheosis, and released it in September 2015. After the release of Apotheosis Rene moved on to focus more on Terrifier, and Zakk moved on to focus on various other bands. Jesse met Shiloh Anderson working as a landscaper with Rene, and quickly recruited him on bass guitar. Next Matt Chanway responded to a guitarist wanted add on Craigslist. He came and checked out a show and we hit it off. With this new lineup the band quickly got to work on their debut full length, The Laws Of Power.

Old School influenced Death/Thrash Metal from Vancouver BC, Canada.


Everything was better in the old days. Every modern death metal band is trying to be more technical or more brutal than the next to the point that they lose the essence of the music. Others go so far as to mix it with other styles tainting the purity and aggression of that unmistakable early 90’s death metal sound.

With their first full length album “The Laws of Power”, to be released worldwide via SAOL on March 17th 2017, Assimilation prepares for a counterstrike. They’ll batter audiences with a healthy dose of classic death metal and thrash with none of the filler. Like a force of nature, the voice of singer and founding member Jesse
Jardine’s vocal attack leaves the listener penetrated by high shrieks, and pummeled by mid’s and lows. Lead guitarist Matt Chanway brings his neo-classical shred style into the fold to melt off any remnants of what used to be your face. Shiloh Anderson holds the low end down with his finger/slap hybrid style, and Stephen Shaw brings his experience and ferocity as the entity that keeps this juggernaut from flying off the rails.

With “The Laws Of Power”, the four Canadians make it clear: There are still bands well versed in the art of the original uncompromising death metal, something that is hard to find these days. Assimilation is going to change this – and drag everyone and everything with them on the way.
