Chariots Of The Gods are a band from Ontario, Canada that plays a mixture of deathcore, melodic death metal and thrash metal and this is a review of their self released album "Tides Of War" which will be released in 2013.
Drums range from s low, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the synths which are only briefly they add an atmospheric sound to the soft and melodic parts of the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine deathcore, melodic death metal, and thrash together to create a sound of their own as well as a brief use of soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads that h ave a classic metal feeling to them, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to add more variety to the music.
Vocals range from hardcore style shouts, thrash style vocals, deep death metal growls and high pitched screams, while t he lyrics cover war, mythology, scientific and philosophical themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording and you can hear all of t he musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Chariots Of The Gods are a very great sounding hybrid of thrash, deathcore and melodic death metal and if you are a fan of t his musical genre, you should check out this band.
