Vancouver, BC power thrashers TITANS EVE are back with their sophomore album “Life Apocalypse” out on Friday, July 13th and is the follow up to last year’s successful debut release “The Divine Equal” that was named album of the month (Sept 2011) by Metal Hammer Magazine (Germany) and conquered the #7 spot on the Top 20 of Earshot’s Loud Charts for Canadian College Radio for 2011.
Here’s the official word:
Like its predecessor, ‘The Divine Equal’, which is based on themes from The Book of Genesis and John Milton’s poem ‘Paradise Lost. Titans Eve’s new album ‘Life Apocalypse’ is a concept release that explores people’s life changing events (Apocalypses) and their stories of courage to survive overall disaster.
So it’s 2012 and the end of time may be near, or so they say, but that’s no reason to panic because Vancouver-based metal masters Titans Eve are gearing up to unleash their second full-length album, the extremely timely and aptly titled, Life Apocalypse.
The perfect musical end for the perfect apocalypse, the 11 tracks of Life Apocalypse were produced by Titans Eve and recorded by Sacha Laskow of Divinity at Perfect Fifth Studios in Calgary, AB in a manner that was strikingly different from the band’s first foray into the studio while creating their critically-acclaimed debut, The Divine Equal. After all, time was of the essence.
“This album was written faster and was more of an aggressive attempt at writing and recording an album,” says guitarist Kyle Gamblin. “We hammered out the songs and bunkered down to record in Calgary with Sacha Laskow for a month and recorded every day.”
Taking a turn from their debut, which was released in February of last year, but staying true to their personal interpretations of honest, powerful modern metal, “the result, Life Apocalypse, shows our efforts and captures the best performances from all four members of our band. We worked very hard to deliver something that wouldn’t disappoint fans of our last album,” says Brian Gamblin.
Following the release of Life Apocalypse this summer, Titans Eve will once again pile into the “Titan Train” (i.e. their 2007 Ford E-350 van) and travel across Canada, bringing their music to as great an audience as possible, supporting Canadian metal heavyweights Anvil and oh, so much more until the clock stops ticking.
