Arise The Titan-Our Collective Destroyer


Hockey mask killers won't be the only thing to fear in January of 2012. It seems as if Ohio's Arise The Titan have opted to unleash this 8-track EP on Friday the 13th as well. Twice the bloodshed and mayhem then from the sounds of it. As debut albums go this one is a brute. Extreme metal is the name of the game and I can't quite decide if what we have here is a hardcore band influenced by thrash metal and death metal or a thrash/death hybrid band gone hardcore. Either way the end result is the same and that is crushing heavy metal that is both technical and terrorizing. Arise The Titan front man Michael Leone often pushes his vocals into death metal territory while the rest of this 5-piece outfit tries to keep him in check. This is hand- crafted Ohio metal made by people who have no doubt had to endure one too many bleak Ohio winters. It seems to be that our area is producing more of these extreme metal bands everyday and sooner or later the mainstream press is going to have to wake up to the fact that Ohio's heavy metal scene is more crushing than ever. Maybe this isn't groundbreaking metal here but it is certainly neckbreaking metal.
