Animal Men of the Northwest, or AMNW for short, are a fairly new addition to the Edmonton Metal scene, however, in that time, they have made a lasting impression on everyone lucky enough to have seen them live. The band roster consists of the exceptionally talented Jeff Kirkby on bass, Cam Sopczak on guitar and vocals, Devon Allman (Ponch) on drums, Tom Melnyk (Fish) on guitar and Jacob Thompson-Rolheiser on vocals.

AMNW played their first show as a complete band in early 2008 and since that time have written some of the strongest indie metal music in the Edmonton scene. Their sound has been compared to such bands as Iron Maiden, Amon Amarth, Kalma, and early Metallica.

In a short period of time, the young band has managed to gain an almost cult-like following, carving out a niche with metal and punk purists alike. Since their beginning, AMNW has played numerous shows, recorded their debut EP titled “The Animal Men Forthcoming” and this past year were signed to indie record label Suicidal Bride Records.

The Animal Men of the North West are currently looking for shows to play, working on new material, and are having a the time of their life in the process of it all.
