For Fans Of Mute: IVS

Fast, technical, and melodic are just a few words that the punk rock community uses to describe MUTE’s music. Composed of Marc-Antoine Bastien, Étienne Dionne, Jean-Philippe Lamonde and Alexis Trépanier, MUTE has spent the last 16 years taking a 100% DIY approach to bringing its music to the masses.
The group has four albums under its belt - Blueprints (2001), Sleepers (2004), The Raven (2008) and Thunderblast (2011) – that have been distributed in North America, Brazil, Japan and Europe. The band has also filmed five music videos over the course of their career.

Today we would like to introduce you a band that sounds very similar to MUTE’s music, IVS.

Out of Canada comes the band known as IVS, bringing with them an arsenal of fast, melodic tunes. For fans of metal-infused melodic punk rock, IVS is a band that you absolutely can not miss! With many surprises up their sleeves, and no plan to give up anytime in the near future, the five-headed monster from the cold city of Mississauga is ready for Destruction.

The band has released two EPs, 'Black Eyes EP (2008)' and 'Extinction EP (2010)', and a full-length, 'Rest Assured, We Are Not Your Saviours (2009)'. You can get them right here.
