Red Hot Daggers

"A more accurate name has rarely been coined for a band – their edges would be dangerously filthy and serrated were it not for the fact that they have been plunged into the fire. A molten concoction of dance music, noise rock, and post-hardcore sensibilities, Red Hot Daggers is the sonic equivalent of a stylish seizure, all conniptive bursts, sulfurous screams, and joyfully vitriolic spasms." – push pins (October 14, 2006)
"Red Hot Daggers were like City of Caterpillar fighting Red Light Sting in a pit of Broken Glass. It was awesome."

From Edmonton, Alberta, and active late 2000's. They seemed to belong to a really good era of Alberta hardcore along with bands like Gift Eaters, and Fuck the Tundra. I think the description of them sounding like City of Caterpillar mixed with Red Light Sting is kind of apt, there's definitely a distinct Canadian post hardcore sound to them, mixed with more traditional emo. Pretty good. Check it out.
