It’s hard to imagine the Saskatoon metal scene without local four-piece Sparky. Thankfully, we never really had to.
For the past ten – yes, ten! – years, Sparky have evolved, grunted, growled and shredded, weathering members changes and the occasional on-stage faux-murder – anyone else remember when current bassist Jon “replaced” Tim in front of an overly delighted audience?
Musically the group keeps a masterful balance between pushing boundaries, adding layers of technical wizardry to keep the music nerds interested, but always thrashing hard enough for us wasters to bang our heads into a sloppy, gooey salute.
