“Titans Eve has quickly risen through the ranks of the Vancouver metal scene, quickly becoming one of the best thrash bands in town.” – Absolute Underground Magazine
“The Gamblin brothers shred like crazy, easily making Titans Eve one of the best local (Vancouver) thrash bands. They really blew everyone away, and sent beer flying all over the place.” – Absolute Underground Magazine (Live Review)
“Titans Eve churned out their own unique brand of thrash metal. Brothers Kyle and Brian Gamblin did a great job stirring up the crowd,… With a short but sweet set with crowd favourites including “The Tides of Doom”, “Serpent Rising”, “Into the Fire” and “Living Lifeless,” Titans Eve left it all on stage and made a strong impression.” – Abort Mag (Live Review)
“Gotta love bands like this that come from left field and surprise one with their sound, attitude and imagery. Titans Eve hails from Vancouver, hardly a global metal hotspot, and performs traditional and true heavy metal without any of the superfluous gimmickry that has become a hallmark of metal betrayal and ineptitude. The quartet’s sound is heavy and anthemic and blatantly related to the true sounds of Priest, Maiden and Arch Enemy” – Metallian.com
“Titans Eve had everything that was needed to make for a killer show; solid memorable music that can move even the folks who are unfamiliar with the songs, backed by a tight, powerful performance. ” – Metalstorm.net (Live Review)
“Titans Eve have embraced the old fashioned Thrash ethic of keeping an eye on quality and not going overboard with content. ” – Metal-Observer.com
“Third to the stage was Titans Eve (www.myspace.com/titanseveofficial ), a modern thrash metal band with some epic European metal sounding influences. Their new album, The Divine Equal, is due on February 1st, with possible North American and beyond tour dates to follow. This band already have a rabid fan base, with one devotee informing me “These guys are gong to play Ozzfest one day man – they’re gonna f— headline Ozzfest!” Judging by their proficient heavy talent, you would never guess that this band has only been performing together for around three years.” - Vancmusic.ca – Concert Review
“Thrashy, crunchy goodness that’s perfect to bang your head to.” – Funeralrain.net
“The next act of the night, was again, Vancouver’s own, Titan’s Eve. They had their fans standing strong against the barrier, thrashing amongst one another, and screaming the words back to the guys…Their performance was extremely strong, and energetic. The last song, Brian got the crowd cheering him on to chug a beer, and its my pleasure to say, he successfully chugged a full beer, and finished their set with a song packed with heavy riffs, strong drum beats, and vocals to captivate the audience.” – RockstarWeekly.com (Live Review) from opening w/ Exodus
Album Reviews from The Divine Equal Metal Hammer (Germany) – Album of The Month – September 2011
“Returning with their incredible, gap-spanning take on moderately melodic and primeval metal, Vancouver, BC ragers Titans Eve deliver some creative, impressively cohesive work on latest full-length The Divine Equal” - Exclaim!
” The Divine Equal presents an opportunity for the band to save underground thrash metal from its current ‘nu-thrash’ moniker and that in itself is something exciting….The energy from “Judgement” carries on throughout the rest of the record and helps to maintain a level of head banging that will surely cause permanent neck damage…an impressive debut. 4/5″ – MetalUnderground.com
“Titans Eve have built a considerable foundation to springboard from on THE DIVINE EQUAL and I would optimistically look forward to what the future holds for the four of them. “ - Metal-Rules.com
“Every track is a full blown “Arena Anthem.” You can sing along at any point with very distinct choruses that leave the listener anticipating their next chance to belt along with vocalist Brian Gamblin.” – WeLoveMetal.com
“The Divine Equal is a full on aural assault from beginning to end.” – PureGrainAudio.com
“I’d like to point out Titans Eve is a band I like because of their anthem filled nature. The songs on show are very easy to sing along to, and that could be just what is needed in metal today. Stand out tracks: Judgement, Nightfall and Becoming The Demon.” - Ultimate-Guitar.com
