Five & Five: Titan’s Eve
Our Spiderdude Alex had a brief talk with Kyle Gamblin, guitarist of the up and coming thrash metal band from Vancouver, British Columbia by the name of Titan’s Eve. Titan’s Eve was named our July EMURGMetal Artist of the Month and the hard work on their latest album, Life Apocalypse shows why they deserve it.
1. EMURG: How did you come up with the band name?
TE: We we’re drinking and feeling like we were on the ‘Eve’ of something powerful, then the word ‘Titan’ got thrown out. Pretty simple (laughs).
2. EMURG: What artists/bands/songs/albums influenced you?
TE: We’re big time influenced by Metallica, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Maiden, Arch Enemy and Ozzy.
3. EMURG: What are you listening to right now?
TE: Classical music like Kurt Atterberg and Ozzy!
4. EMURG: What’s your favorite show/performance been as a band?
TE: When we opened for Korn we had incredible energy and managed to win over over 2000 people. That was great.
5. EMURG: If I want people to remember one song from our band, it would be…
TE: Judgment from The Divine Equal album. That was the first song we ever wrote for this band, real proud of that.
1. EMURG: How was the recording process for Life Apocalypse different from The Divine Equal?
TE: It was faster and more intense. We had only one month to get everything right. We’re very happy with the result.
2. EMURG: Both The Divine Equal and Life Apocalypse are concept albums, is writing a concept album easier for you as a band or is it more of a challenge to unite everything under one theme?
TE: It’s really easy to capture how we feel at the time and write a theme around it. This album isn’t a strict story or anything, but the overall vibe and theme is the same.
3. EMURG: What song on Life Apocalypse are you most looking forward to playing live on the upcoming tour?
TE: All of them! But if we had to pick it would be “Destined to Die”.
4. EMURG: What are some of your goals as a band?
TE: To reach and play for as many people as possible. Connect with a large audience and hopefully make a living out of it.
5. EMURG: Do you have any pre-show rituals or anything you do to get yourself mentally prepared for a show?
TE: We all warm up, I have a beer or two. That’s about it.
