Uigg was formed by Dani Dowling and Craig St Jean in the spring/summer of 2006. Both quickly realized that vocals and percussion rarely make for good metal, so they enlisted the assistance of longtime friend Chris “Q” Gaudette and recent acquaintance Christ “Douce” Doucette. After writing some material they came across Ryan “Halestorm” Hale to complete the quintet. Drawing inspiration heavily from thrash, death metal and black metal they’ve developed an aggressive sound which clearly separates them from other heavy bands in the area. When paired with one of the most intense live shows the Maritimes has ever seen, Uigg has become an experience that few have words for, but then again broken bones and busted lips can usually speak for themselves.

“a very interesting combination of some of the most intense and well-loved metal styles out there”Exclaim! Magazine
“To Punish and Enslave represents hope on the horizon for me, because it is indeed a straight up, good death metal record with black metal influences”
All Metal Resource
“This release offers a mix of death metal, black metal, thrash and even a little stoner rock, which is definitely one hell of a mix… UIGG is off to a great start and has proven that they can mix all of these styles with relative ease”
