“We can’t begin to describe how proud we are to finally share our musical creations with the world. So much has gone into it and we were lucky enough to work with incredible people such as our producer Glen Robinson and Aleksi Sihvonen (voice of NORTHER, featured on the track ‘Unbound’). Our sweat and manly tears gave this full length album a more authentic and mature sound that will hopefully, rip your face off and leave you breathless,” [commented vocalist Renaud Jobin:]
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada's CHARIOTS OF THE GODS took their first step toward greatness during “the warm summer of 2007”, when self-thought guitarist Mathieu St-Amour, along with past members Christian Methot and Christian Carrière, decided to start playing music “and see what would happen”. What happened was the addition of new personnel, namely drummer Rich O’Neil and vocalist Renaud Jobin. The quintet recorded the ‘Reverence’ EP, which gained them recognition on the local circuit, and brought on better opportunities. By the end of 2010, CHARIOTS OF THE GODS lost two original members and eventually secured two new ones: bassist (“young gun”) Payam Doryani and guitarist Dimitri Gervais. Revitalized, CHARIOTS OF GODS took their “blistering solos, gripping melodies, rioting vocals and drums that just won’t quit” to studio to record their debut full-length album in spring of 2012.
CHARIOTS OF GODS features: Renaud Jobin – vocals, Mathieu St-Amour - guitar & backup vocals, Dimitri Gervais - guitar & backup vocals, Rich O’Neil – drums and Payam Doryani - bass & backup vocals
