Canvas Solaris - Biography

This band's profile is 'invisible', meaning that it's much less prominent on the site - either because it's incomplete, or maybe doesn't entirely fit MS format.



Formed in 1999 by Sapp, Ginn, and former bassist Jimmy McCall. Band played increasingly weird death metal for two and a half years before adding Simpkins to the line-up and going instrumental. Recorded the Spatial/Design EP in Dec. 2002, which was promptly released the next year by North Carolina label Tribunal Records. In 2004, Canvas released their debut LP, Sublimation, again through the Tribunal label. In Feb. 2005, Canvas signed with Sensory Records (home to Spiral Architect, Gordian Knot, Zero Hour, et al.), who just released the band's second full-length album, Penumbra Diffuse.
