Put your ear to the ground anywhere in the civilized world and chances are you'll hear the rumble of the newest power trio to break into the scene. Ground Level brings metal, hard rock and hardcore to the table to form their own style of groove metal with crushing riffs and anthem-like choruses. Although the band is still fairly new, having played their first live show together in January of 2004, the members of Ground Level each have a long history of musical experience. Scott Leef, who has worked as a drum instructor, grew up in Ottawa playing with hard rock bands on the local scene until he moved to Toronto in 2003. Leo Gray, guitars, and Jeff Buck, bass, met in high school and have been playing in various bands together ever since. Because of the different influences and talents of each member, the songwriting process can go in many different directions. Ground Level's sound can be described as a fusion incorporating the rawness of old school hardcore with the melodic groove of modern hard rock that manages to sound fresh and exciting. Since forming, Ground Level have successfully inked 2 clothing sponsorships, worked with some of Toronto's top booking agents and have had one of their songs included on the soundtrack for an upcoming film appearing at the American Film Festival. Ground Level is definitely a band that must be seen live, as the stage is where the energy and power of the music explodes. Their new album 'TRUSTFIRE' is simply a glimpse into the anarchy which is their live show. The band is constantly writing new material and finding new ways to entice their crowds so that each show is a new experience. Keep your eyes open and your ears to the ground as you do not want to miss out the next time Ground Level rolls through your town.
