Pacer have been gainfully treading the boards in Montreal since 1997 opening for higher profile acts such as Trapt, as well as working with respected L.A producer Phil Greiss to produce this, Pacer’s debut e.p. Honed faithfully in the groove favoured by some of Canada’s more popular alternative hard rock acts, Pacer show a decent enough aptitude to warrant radio airplay-‘Persuasion’ and ‘Silent Treatment’ being the clearest examples- yet display enough new metal ideals to produce solid album orientated material (‘Facedown’ and ‘My Rain’). In general record labels have shown a great deal of interest in music of this genre and certainly the popularity of bands such as Crossfade, Cold and bands of that ilk shows little signs of abating. Pacer would by no means be out of place on any reputable major label roster.
