Review by JD on March 7, 2011.
There is a moment in every reviewer’s career, when he thinks that he has found that certain album that speaks to him in a way that others never have. It would be an album that straddles boundaries, genres and even his or herself to have that something. Me thinks that I have found an album that has done just that... and they are Canadian too. Cool.
Chariots Of The Gods hail from Canada’s capital city of Ottawa Ontario and unlike our illustriously non-effective government morons, these guys are doing everything right. With powerful alignments of basic old school, explosive Thrash and straight out Death Metal they are talented enough and powerful enough to show the world Canada rocks hard. They are taking over right now.
The old school part of their sound makes for melodies that stick in your mind while the Death Metal end powers the whole thing with unwavering assault of heaviness and harsh overtones. It is the thrashy parts that stick out, melding the other two parts into a demon metallic monster that is unmistakenly good. Four songs... for mighty tracks... and you are wanting more.
Because this is only a EP (my readers know my thoughts on this already) it is a bit of a tease. They need to put out a full album, and then wait for it to take over the world. Because they are in the capital city they just might take over parliament on just pure force. Canadian metal shows the world once more, it can not be ignored because it won't let it.
