2023 METAL/HARD MUSIC ALBUM OF THE YEAR | Get The Shot | | The JUNO Awards

Merciless Destruction, marks the awaited return of Quebec City’s hardcore scene trailblazers, GET THE SHOT. As with “No Peace In Hell” (2014) and “Infinite Punishment”(2017), the fourth album sees the band exploring new territories of extreme music, while sticking to its roots and its fierce DIY approach to music. GET THE SHOT incorporates death metal and beatdown elements on Merciless Destruction. Over countless tours across the globe the band has taken inspiration from many bands along the way and refined their sound, while also taking influence from some of the top heavy artists such as Obituary, Cannibal Corpse and Machine Head.

On Merciless Destruction, GET THE SHOT consolidates its independent approach despite a tedious and fraught recording process. Hardcore community anchorage has never been greater, driven by a clear strategy, a group on top of their game and unwavering dedication. After more than 500 concerts on three continents, including some on the biggest international stages such as Hellfest, Jera On Air, Summerbreeze and Groezrock, the five members remain committed to the core values of authenticity, integrity, and equality at the heart of the hardcore movement, while addressing with disillusioned realism the flaws of an era defined by blind individualism.
