​Our featured musician this week is drummer extraordinaire, Thiago Siqueira of Ivory Gates. This guy is smooth, technical and creative, just a pleasure to listen to.  Thiago's style is dynamic with complicated chops yet he makes it all look incredibly relaxed.  

Mix high doses of 70’s influences with 80’s progressive rock and good old heavy metal into their very own unique blend. Their compositions are direct and aggressive, but with highly sophisticated arrangements. Since their formation in the year 2000, they have towered an impressive discography of five albums, all extremely well received by national and international press.   less

With Thiago's drumming, great guitarist, bassist and vocalist, Ivory Gates create top level music, they are a must see band.

Nosso músico destaque desta semana é o extraordinário baterista Thiago Siqueira do Ivory Gates. Esse cara é suave, técnico e criativo, é um prazer ouvir.  O estilo de Thiago é dinâmico com golpes complicados, mas ele faz tudo parecer incrivelmente descontraído.


Misture altas doses de influências dos anos 70 com rock progressivo dos anos 80 e o bom e velho heavy metal em uma mistura única. Suas composições são diretas e agressivas, mas com arranjos altamente sofisticados. Desde a sua formação no ano 2000, acumulam uma impressionante discografia de cinco álbuns, todos extremamente bem recebidos pela imprensa nacional e internacional.

"We’re comin’ in fast, hot and greasy with our second dose of Nitro Rock, “Broke and Ugly”. It’s faster, grittier, meaner, sleazier, and louder than the first dose we gave you, and it’ll have you tapping your arm frantically to find a good vein. We’ve been called “Halifax’s answer to Motorhead” by The East Magazine in 2020 with our first album, and with this release, we’ve taken that reputation VERY seriously.


Get yourself a grimy slab of Thrash, add a good pinch of NWOBHM catchiness and throw it on the burner. Mix some spicy glam metal and sleaze rock into a bowl with a large helping of punk rock and hardcore. Drizzle that over what you got on the burner, and garnish with a singer determined to turn his voice into sand who’s lifestyle and world-view will make you worry for him, and you have the recipe for Turbo’s distinct flavor. It’s an absolute slaughter in 7-tracks, sure to scratch an old-school itch you didn’t realize was there. Like your disheveled uncle on Christmas morning, Turbo is STILL trashed, pissed off, and sick of your shit.
