About: A Vancouver born Modern Thrash outfit. Titan’s Eve formed in 2008 by brothers Brian and Kyle Gamblin, with Casey Ory on Drums and later joined by Jesse Hord on bass. From day one the band has written the tunes they want to hear, and taken charge of their musical ambitions on their own terms. The early days saw the 4 piece defining their sound and making fans in their home city.
2009/2010 featured their emergence on the Canadian metal scene and the beginning of a strong fan base. They embarked on their first western Canadian tour and gave Canadians a real live taste of their sound. While gaining support and honing their music they ventured into a local studio with the talented Curt Wells. Their first album “The Divine Equal” was later mixed and mastered by Sacha Laskow of Calgary Tech-metal band Divinity. With the release and critical acclaim the album received, their first Cross-Canadian tour followed exposing even more to their unique brand of thrash metal.
2011 saw “The Divine Equal released to a bigger audience, with a 2 month self booked tour of North America. Titan’s Eve had the pleasure to play in front of crazed metal fans all over the United States. 2012 started with a bang with their first arena show and fulfilling a dream of playing with Nu-metal leaders Korn. Fresh of the success from their debut, Titan’s Eve began creating the follow up, “Life Apocalypse”. “This album was written faster and was more of an aggressive attempt at writing and recording an album,” says guitarist Kyle Gamblin. “We hammered out the songs and bunkered down to record in Calgary with Sacha Laskow for a month and recorded every day.”
Taking a turn from their debut, which was released a year previously, but staying true to their personal interpretations of honest, powerful modern metal, “the result, Life Apocalypse, shows our efforts and captures the best performances from all four members of our band. We worked very hard to deliver something that wouldn’t disappoint fans of our last album,” says Brian Gamblin.
Following the release of Life Apocalypse that summer, Titans Eve took the “Titan Train” (i.e. their 2007 Ford E-350 van) and travelled across western Canada, bringing their music to as great an audience as possible, supporting Canadian metal heavyweights Anvil followed by a tour with super-group Kill Devil Hill featuring Rex Brown of Pantera. After these incredible tours, they’re biggest venture yet came into focus with an invite to be a support act on the Arch Enemy European Khaos tour. This saw their first tour in Europe, playing to the receptive and enthusiastic European metal crowds.
2013-14 had been used for writing and recording their third album, with breaks from the rehearsals by touring westeren Canada, playing music festivals and opening for the likes of Diamoned Head, Raven and soulfly. The album was recorded in Vancouver’s legendary Warehouse Studio with renowned producer and engineer Eric Mosher. The mastering was completed by Canadian metal hero Jeff Waters of Annihilator.
Stay tuned for a new album and new tours in 2015!

“Vancouver thrash/doom metal act unleashes a monster with its third album. Tightly woven tunes are delivered with blistering power, channeling the best of their influences, which range from early era thrash (Metallica, Exodus, Judas Priest) to modern day grind and prog metal (Mastodon). If 2012’s Life Apocalypse was about confronting your demons, Chasing The Devil is about grabbing the beast by the horns. Highlight tracks: No Kingdom, The Grind” – Vancouver Sun
“Titans Eve are one of the best bands to come out of my home town, Vancouver!” – Michael Livan – The Metal Meltdown – CJSF 90.1 FM
“Titans Eve have conquered their local scene convincingly, and have put their boots into thicker mud, venturing across their native Canada. Touring with bigger names, in support fashion, hungry to belong in the next level. Chasing The Devil will be a sharp weapon to help them carve up the competition. Shepherd Says- 8/10 – Hey, I put them side by side with the giant and it felt like they weathered that barrage. Titans Eve is earning their way up the ladder.” – We Love Metal
“…they’ve certainly stepped it up on their forthcoming album. The band’s concept is good, as they blend equal portions of thrash from bands such as Annihilator and Exodus with the progressive stoner groove of Mastodon and Meshuggah…Each element of the band works in unison as classic melodies and solos are placed side-by-side with meaty chugging and gravely outer-space vocals.” – Flink.TO
“They blend classic heavy, power, and thrash metal with a dose of modern intensity, yet temper it with melody harmony for persuasive, interesting, and entertaining results. Recommended.” – Danger Dog Music Reviews
“Chasing The Devil presents us a modern thrash template that can be as melodic as it is ferocious.” – Dead Rhetoric
“This is the third full length album of the band and I wonder why they have not been signed by any label. Coming from Vancouver, Canada, these guys forged a very interesting and unique form ofthrash metal with modern elements here and there, and high doses of technique at instrumentation.” – Zombie Ritual Zine
“Chasing The Devil’s 8 tracks stick to a ferocious mid paced thrash sound, with a touch of modern metal. The dual guitar team displays not just tasty riffs but intertwining dual harmonies, which sometimes call the mighty Iron Maiden to mind, as well as settling into a deep comfortable groove when called for. Add in the down low and percussion and you’ve got one hell of a sound.” – True Metal Lives
