Chariots Of The Gods Posts Lyric Video

Melodic death metal group Chariots Of The Gods just unleashed a new lyric video for "Resurrection" in support of latest album "Ages Unsung," which was released this past September.

"Resurrection" is one of ten shredding tracks recorded at The Grid with legendary Montreal producer Chris Donaldson (Cryptopsy, The Agonist, Beyond Creation, Neuraxis). The album also features a special guest solo from The Agonist's Pascal Jobin on the song 'Into Oblivion."

The band comments on the "Resurrection" clip: "For the third lyric video, we thought 'Resurrection' could be a great addition to our series of singles. The song talks about the rising of beasts ready to set the world ablaze. With the U.S. elections having passed, we felt the themes can somewhat be connected. We went into new territories with this one, but we’re really proud of the turnout. We hope you will enjoy it!" More...

Pit Stories: Fan Devotion

This week's Pit Story comes courtesy of a Canadian metal band that's been flying under the radar for far too long.

Ottowa outfit Chariots Of The Gods shares a tale about a devoted fan who got more than a little knocked around in the pit at a release show, but decided to stick it out anyway.

The band recalls the story like this:

This particular pit story happened at the release show for our first record "Tides of War." The show was packed and the venue pretty near maximum capacity (350 to 400). During one of our songs, I can't remember which, a big circle pit starting forming and things got pretty wild in there. One of our fan/friends, who wears glasses, got knocked over in the pit and his glasses broke.

As he put his hands down to try and get back up he cut his palm open on the broken lenses. People got him up, he then went to the bathroom to clean up and patch it up as best he could, then came back out and stayed for the rest of the show; only after did he leave for the hospital to get sowed up. Pretty dedicated metal head right there in my opinion.

This isn't the first time we've heard stories of crazy fan devotion - what's the worst injury you've seen a metal head sustain and still hang out to finish the rest of the set?

Chariots Of The Gods also just released new album "Ages Unsung" last month, which can be heard in full via the YouTube playlist below. More...

The band comments: "It's been more than 3 years since our first official music video for the song 'Tides of War' was released. A lot has changed since then, and it's time to reveal our first music video 'Tusk' in support of our new record.

"It was great to have Renaud Jobin, our former vocalist, directing the project and working together again. He has a clear understanding of what the band is about and what we wanted to achieve. We’re really happy with the outcome and can’t wait to do more videos for 'Ages Unsung.'" More...

New single "Into Oblivion" - featuring a guitar solo from Pascal Jobin of The Agonist - is ready to annihilate your ear drums below.

This is just a precursor to upcoming album "Ages Unsung," set to be released later this year to follow 2013 debut album 'Tides of War." If you want to pre-order the album and help out with production costs, head over to the crowd funding campaign here.

Chariots of The Gods comments: "After all this time of not releasing new music, we are really excited and proud to finally present you some new material from the new lineup. With the coming of this new record, we thought that a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter could not only help us face the financial burden of the project, but also give us a way to engage with our fans and gauge the interest in the project.

"Unlike many other crowdfunding platforms, a Kickstarter campaign is 'all or nothing,' which mean we don’t get funded unless we reach our goal. Our goal for this campaign is to get 3000$ to help us with the costs of production and promotion. We hope you'll enjoy our new material as well as the perks that we've prepared for you!" More...
