Here we have another Christian band that strikes back after a couple of years of silence. Titanic released a best of album called Wreckage late last year and now got a brand new album out. This release also features two bonus tracks both of which features Stryper´s Robert Sweet on drums. This is pure metal with a powerful sound and heavy riffs. The sound has not changed from the early albums, no this is heavy metal with a rough edge and makes me think of bands such as Judas Priest, Danzig and Metal Church but Titanic don’t reach the same level as the mentioned bands.
Sure there are moments where they really sound good and the new vocalist David St. Martins has a strong, dark voice that reminds of the Danzig singer. Best song of the album is the ultra heavy Captain Of The Ship that rocks great with nice melodies. If you´re into heavy metal with heart pounding guitars then check out this metal rockers. A solid album that has some good moments and forget what ballads are because this is full speed ahead.
Lostprophets recorded their 4th album with John Feldmann and Bob Rock but wasn´t happy with the result and wanted the album to be darker. The band decided to self produce the album instead which has the title "Its not the end of the world but I can see it from here". A summer release 2009 is expected.
