Martyr

French-Canadians Martyr played a highly complex form of technical death metal, a style that soon became synonymous with the Quebec area. Drawing from bands such as late-period Death, Cynic, and Atheist, the song arrangements jumped all over the place, showcasing the advanced musicianship of the members. Not for the casual metal listener, as the riffs and time signatures were constantly changing, but for technical metal fans, this band was a must. After self-releasing their albums for far too long, they finally signed to Galy Records for what turned out to be their last album, Feeding The Abscess. They broke up in 2012, and guitarist Daniel Montgrain went on to replace the immortal Piggy in Voivod.
