Titan's Eve: Life Apocalypse
Titan's Eve - Life Apocalypse Review

Titan's Eve: Life Apocalypse

Modern Heavy/Thrash Metal
4.0/5.0

If your looking for the essence and essentials of classic thrash metal in a modern wrapper, then look to Canada's Titan's Eve and their second long-player, Life Apocalypse. With most modern occurrences of thrash erring on the side of harshness, hardcore, and death dirty vocals, it's good to hear a new band delivering melody and some significant shredding.

Titan's Eve: why so grim, boys?

Those latter to characteristics are the most gripping thing about Titan's Eve. Certainly they're heavy and certainly they're thrash. You'll have no problem banging your head, crashing in the mosh pit or, if you still have the hair, doing windmills while rock out to Life Apocalypse. But Titan's Eve delivers solid melodic lines and nearly invincible guitar solos. Toss in some unexpected prog nuances and the flair of convincing subtly on the the instrumental A Wound That Never Heals, and this is some tasty metal. Yeah, vocalist Brian Gamblin, one half of the brothers Gamblin led band, can be a bit gruff sounding. But he's not oppressively harsh, and definitely not hardcore. How it translate live is another story.

Some tracks like Frozen In Time seem to err on the modern harsh side of thrash. But thanks to those elements of melody and guitar lines, it's still nice stuff. Top picks: Destined to Die, The Abyss, Life Apocalypse, and the aforementioned A Wound That Never Heals. Simply, Life Apocalypse is a solid, intriguing and entertaining platter of modern and melodic, heavy and thrash metal, and superior to most of their peers. Easily recommended.
