CHARIOTS OF THE GODS picture
Chariots of the Gods is a Canadian metal band whose brand of thrash metal draws extensively on melodic death metal.

From their 2012 promo material: "Riding out of Canada’s capital, Chariots of the Gods has one sole mission – to deliver straight up, balls-to-the-walls, in-your-face heavy metal. On the road since 2008, spreading its music to the masses, Chariots of the Gods has become known for blistering solos, gripping melodies, rioting vocals and drums that just won’t quit because, after all, that’s what it’s all about.

Having played with bands such as Misfits, Voivod, Despised Icon, Kataklysm, Blind Witness, Misery Index, Martyr, Fuck the Facts, Blackguard, Neuraxis, The Agonist, Reanimator and Insurrection and releasd a debut EP, Reverence, in 2010, Chariots of the Gods' debut LP 'Tides of War' saw release in 2013."

Annihilation by the gods...

Genre: thrash/melodeath

It is true that melodeath and the related genre melodic metalcore have undergone a watering-out over the last couple of years, but every now and then bands emerge that remind us of the awesomeness of the approach to metal that characterizes this type of music. One such band is Chariots of the Gods from Canada, whose album "Tides of War" combines thrash metal and melodeath, sprinkling a bit of melodic metalcore on top.

This album reminds us that, when this type of metal works, it really works. From beginning to end the listener is treated to crunchy guitar riffs and aggressive vocals, accompanied by melodic guitar harmonies, inherited from the likes of Iron Maiden and other NWoBHM bands, and technically advanced guitar solos. Every now and then, a metalcore-like groove pops up, and, since they are used with moderation, the metalcore elements really do enrich the already pretty awesome metal music.

The production is clean and crisp, allowing the listener to pick up the bass frequencies and all details in the drumming on par with the guitars. The musicianship is impeccable and, based on this release, Chariots of the Gods really deserve to make it big in the world of melodeath-related metal.

"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.
