  1. Removal

    Removal is a Canadian experimental music group formed in 1997 in Vancouver. They have recorded and released six studio albums to date. They produce and release instrumental only music on their full-length albums, occasionally partnering with other artists to provide lyrics and vocals for an existing musical track. Removal has been described alternatively as progressive metal or experimental rock. There are no vocal microphones on stage with the band during their live performances, and all communication with the audience outside of the music itself is done through text and images projected on the wall behind the band. The band undertake regular tours through Europe, going so far as to keep a van of tour equipment at the ready in Amsterdam for their roughly annual tours. Removal used the 1980 Ford Econoline van that accompanied Terry Fox on the Marathon of Hope for touring in North America for many years.
