    “‘Tides of War’ offers music that is well done and fueled with the propensity of delivering solid melodic death/thrash.” – Blistering.com

    “Fans of modern thrash, who like it furious, biting and yet melodic check Chariots of The Gods.” – Lords of Metal

    “There’s a lot on ‘Tides of War’ to pique the interest of either thrash or melodic death metal fans, and the non-stop galloping guitar sound is an impressive display of what the underground can achieve.” – MetalUnderground.com

    “It is heavy, brutal and energetic while also incorporating a fair amount of melody to boot!…This is an album that is definitely going to raise the bar in the extreme music scene for the remainder of the year. Pick this one up; you won’t regret it!” – PureGrainAudio.com

    “CHARIOTS OF THE GODS are showing plenty of promise to be able to be one of Canada’s next big things out there” – Metal Observer

    “An incredibly professional production is at hand: drums are clear; vocals are on the perfect level with the instruments; even the soft and quiet moments are balanced just right so as to create bits of atmosphere against the heaviness. There is a pure love of metal evident in this debut and the production lets all the power, aggression, and passion through to the listener…the band confidently establishes their intention: a charge of solid and unyielding melodeath garnished with impeccable interludes, solos, and leads.” – MetalStorm

    “CHARIOTS OF THE GODS, with their first full-length release ”Tides Of War”,is sure to be the new buzz of the underground scene…Overall, the album is an eclectic, vibrant, and colorful release that really keeps listeners head banging all the way and appreciating the good work the band has put in. The production is clearly strong, coming from the hands of Glen Robinsonwho has worked with Metal legends such as ANNIHILATOR and QUEENSRYCHE…The band does its best, and boy is it good, to church out infectious hook after hook, coupled with blistering melodies and kickass solos backed by Jobin’s great vocals. Each band member shines in this album and their dedication and devotion to their music is clear from the start…The entire album is structured in a genius way—these guys are clearly gifted lads.” – Metal-Temple

    “Splendid stuff from a young Canadian troupe that would appear to have all the tricks… I love their coruscating mix of Maidenesque harmonies (have a listen to the awesome Blind Assassin and tell me you ain’t impressed)” – MetalAsFuck

    “”Tides of War” is an album that rivals classics by acts such as God Forbid, Shadows Fall, and Killswitch Engage in excellence and pays respectful homage to acts like In Flames, Arch Enemy, At The Gates, and Dark Tranquility. For my money, this debut album deserves the status as a melodeath-type of metal classic. 5/5″ – MetalMusicArchives

    “The best thing about this band, in my view, is the powerful melodic style they bring to each song. The guitarists are especially strong on several tracks, including “Tides of War,” “Revillusion (1905),” and “Unbound.” I loved the instrumental track “Snow Falls on the White River (1914),” yet another piece of evidence that these guys have a keen sense of melody, at times, one that even approaches beauty. Mathiew St-Amour and Dimitri Gervais play their guitars with grace and precision and sound especially great on their harmonized parts. These guys have a bright future as twin guitar leads and I hope they’ll take advantage of what they can do together. Readers who like their guitars to come in pairs will love this album.” – SeaofTranquility

For my money, this debut album deserves the status as a melodeath-type of metal classic. 5/5″ – MetalMusicArchives

    “COTG entice the listener with infectious hooks, associated melodies and some blistering solos out of the guitar work. If that is not justice enough for you to buy this, then listen to the intensity of Renaud Jobin’s vocals. This is a release that requires you to strap your balls down (if you have them of course!) when the volume is cranked up…They have a fantastic musical ability and a gift of song structure that exhumes listeners emotions that includes anger and conversely serenity and the need to throw the devil horns without too much though will therefore result. ‘Tides of War’ promotes Chariots of the Gods as real contenders in their field of metal, their field of glory and the rewards are presented for everyone on these exceptional fourteen tracks defining a generation of musically gifted individuals who do not rely purely on breakdowns to get their point across, it sounds effortless. Horn’s raised high gents! 4/5″ – Brutalism.com

    “Overture is quite sweet sounding and feels like a film score. Nothing compared to the monster that is waiting to be unleashed. Ferocious riffs and classic metal vocals. Drums blasting out the speed and blasts and the guitars giving it a chunky edge whilst maintains some harmony. Hatebreed hardcore edge but throws in the melody. Definitely an innovative sound amongst a sea of similar sounds. Chariots of the Gods definitely seem to offer something that little bit different. Taking the generic metal sound and throwing in delicious guitar solos with a conflicting vocal. Upbeat without being cheesy.” – Culutre Bomb Mag

    ”I’m honored to be a part of this project” – Glen Robinson (producer)

    ”It’s pretty good!” – Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters)

    ”In my opinion, Chariots of the Gods is THE melodic thrash metal revelation in Canada this year” – Musique d’une Nation

    ”Excellent album full of energy [...] I may have a man-crush on Chariots of the Gods”
    Ondes Chocs

    ”I wouldn’t be surprised to see ‘Tides of War’ be a strong beginning this year in the field of melodic death metal.” Dagheisha

    ”Just pure metal [...] it’s a real treat to the ears” – Metal Manic

    ”My first reaction was ”WOW!” [...] If you like death metal, you have to get that CD” – WTFMusic.com

    ”It’s a masterpiece” – Radiorockdrummond.com

    ”Mathieu-Phillipe St-Amour is undoubtedly a promosing guitarist” – dagheisha.com

    ”A band to admire [...] amazing collaboration of Heavy Metal and Death Metal [...] no less than perfect” – Metal Temple

    ”An excellent band who knows what they are doing [...] Listen to them and you’ll discover something great” – Dave Lemire (Concert promoter)

    ”Chariots of the Gods [...] are doing everything right [...] they are talented and powerful enough to show the world Canada rocks hard” – Metal Bite

    ”I am stoked to discover new talent from Ottawa [...] Chariots of the Gods is an erruption waiting to happen”  -The Ottawa Epitaph

    “Hands down, CHARIOTS OF THE GODS have worked hard and have improved their songwriting that shines in “Tides Of War” in every aspect. Don’t be fooled by the melodic Death Metal tag and consider the Canadians just another IN FLAMES wannabe because there is more than just catchy riffs and growling vocals. And don’t forget that CHARIOTS OF THE GODS come from Canada that is a most reliable source for high quality Metal. 8/10″ – MetalKaoz.com

  • LOVE/HATE new single, album, Tour dates

    LOVE/HATE are back with a brand new single, album and UK tour to heat things up during the cold winter months ahead.

    Just in time for Christmas, Love/Hate's new 6 track mini-album 'CRUCIFIED' is out now via iTunes, with the band confirmed for an extensive tour of the UK in March 2014.

    Band frontman and principal songwriter on the new Love/Hate record, Jizzy Pearl, has also recently been confirmed as lead singer for legendary U.S metal band QUIET RIOT.

    Love/Hate burst onto the scene in 1990 with the debut album 'Blackout out in the Red Room' and proceeded to take the UK by storm with Best Album of the Year' from Kerrang and Metal Hammer magazines. Playing sold out shows and opening for Skid Row, AC/DC and Dio put Love/Hate on the map. MTV hits “Why do you Think They call it Dope”, “She’s an Angel” and the bands follow up album 'Wasted In America' has ensured a loyal UK following to this day.

    In 2014 lead singer Jizzy Pearl will carry the Love/Hate tradition into the new millennium with a new album 'CRUCIFIED' - 6 new original songs that sound as vibrant and young as Love/Hate’s first records.

    March 2014 Love/Hate once again fulfill their promise to their loyal UK fans and return for a 16 day whirlwind UK tour which starts 6th March 2014 and includes Hard Rock Hell AOR Festival. Love/Hate has proven that real Rock ‘n’ Roll will never die with their new album 'CRUCIFIED' coming out 13th January 2014. Check it out!

    Jizzy Pearl on 'CRUCIFIED'

    Hanging You Out To Dry - “A song about the infamous Hollywood Sign stunt from the viewpoint of the Crucifee himself. The vibe is simple, I tried to get back to the start, a bunch of young kids banging out loud musical joy in a little room and the singer in the middle, one microphone, testifying to the World.”

    Sunny Day - “A love song to my girlfriend, plain and simple. Usually I had to break up with my girlfriends to get a good song out of them but not this time, thankfully. Sunny Day is old School Love/hate psychedelia."

    You’re Making Me Nervous - “A fictional account of every man’s idea of a bad date. The lyrics come straight from the horse’s mouth as he watches his Friday night fantasy crash and burn."

    I Don’t Want To Be Your Baby - “This is a twist on the traditional Power Ballad where the guy not only doesn’t get the girl, he doesn’t want the girl."

    Love Is All - “My Led Zeppelin roots come out on this one, all those Kashmir days and nights huddled around the peace pipe. I got to stretch out a bit and do some cool things musically that you can’t normally do in a 3 minute pop song.”

    Too Late - “A song about someone near and dear to me who f**ked up. You can’t go back to high school, you can’t go back to those glory
     days of youth. You just—can’t—go—back.”

  • HIRAX reveal new details about new album 'Immortal Legacy'

    “On our new album we more than ever felt an artistic obligation to our fans to give them a really big-sounding record,” says Katon W. De Pena the vocalist of the American thrash metal act HIRAX. He is referring to Immortal Legacy, the latest release by his band which – there can be no doubt about that – will cause a definite stir on the international thrash metal scene. “Our philosophy has always been to remember where we come from and stay true to our roots. Our fans know that we will never let them down and that they have helped to raise us up to a level with bands such as Slayer, Sodom, Kreator, Exodus, Overkill, Testament, Annihilator and many others. This record proves that we are at the top of our game musically!”

    According to Katon W. De Pena, the reason for this, is a line-up which agrees 100% on the group’s stylistic direction and has brought to bear its full energy to make Immortal Legacy the masterpiece it is. Lance Harrison (lead guitars) is Katon’s co-writing partner. “Lance is a riff-writing master and a major force to reckon with! Nicknamed the Shred Baron for obvious reasons. He believes in heavy metal 100%.” His younger brother Steve (bass guitar) is an important part of the HIRAX sound: “Nobody plays bass like him! There is a unique sound and bond between Steve and his brother. As a bass player, he is a true musician.” Last but not least there’s Jorge Iacobellis (drums and percussions), born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Iacobellis is a seasoned veteran who plays with lots of heart and soul. Katon: “The best way I can describe his drumming style is loud and powerful.”

    This constellation has seen HIRAX record more than a dozen scalding hot thrash metal tracks which combine an amazing number of variations. Katon: “This is probably our most diverse album ever. I think there is something for every heavy metal fan on this record! Obviously I’m very proud of it.” Rightly so, because a number such as ‘Hellion Rising’ is straight out of the HIRAX vein – very true to their original in-your-face thrash metal! The most unusual song on the record must be ‘The World Will Burn’.Katon: “You have to hear it to believe it.” His favourite track on this record changes daily, “but if I had to decide today, it would be ‘Black Smoke’, along with the title track ‘Immortal Legacy’. Once you hear them you will never forget them.”

    The new songs were produced by Bill Metoyer (Slayer, Armored Saint, W.A.S.P., Sacred Reich). HIRAX already worked with him back in the early 1980s on their first two albums. Metoyer is a master at his craft and HIRAX feel honored and lucky to have him working with them. For Katon he is a “musical wizard and his work on our new album is genious.”

    The cover of Immortal Legacy was drawn by legendary artist Philip Lawvere (Kreator/Celtic Frost) – his first oil painting in 25 years since coming out of retirement. He is the artist behind such classic album covers as Kreator’s Pleasure To Kill and Celtic Frost’s Emperor’s Return. Lawvere had done stunning illustrations for numerous albums and is best known for a slew of thrash metal offerings released on Noise Records. The HIRAX front man comments: “We couldn’t be happier to have Philip Lawvere illustrating the cover of our new album. After getting Bill Metoyer to produce it, this is truly the icing on the thrash metal cake!”

    With guest guitar players Jim Durkin (Dark Angel), Juan Garcia (Agent Steel/Evildead) and Rocky George (Suicidal Tendencies/Fishbone) on the album, Katon is excited about a real metal monster which his band has produced: “This is our most epic-sounding record to date, sonically powerful and over the top. 14 new raging thrash metal songs that will make you bang your head!!!”

    Immortal Legacy will be released in Germany on 21 February, in Europe on 24 February and in the US/Canada on 4 March through SPV/Steamhammer as CD, gatefold coloured LP and download. Katon: “As to future tour plans, the European and US fans can expect to see us hit their shores very soon in 2014! The HIRAX thrash attack is coming, so get ready worldwide!”
