While fresh to Auckland's Metalcore roster, CHASING TITANS has already come crashing in with tracks that have hit Australia's Top 10 hits this past May. The three-piece released their debut self-titled single album back in December and continue to appear across the world with listeners taking note of the band's inspirations like BRING ME THE HORIZON and A DAY TO REMEMBER.

It's not very often you find a band whose members all contribute to the vocal lineup, so I was very excited to dive into what CHASING TITANS had to offer. "Cabin Fever," accurately titled as it was written during the pandemic, sets a clear first impression for their tone and theme with a heavier emphasis on unclean vocals and a spoken-word type clean vocal to support. With a horror-inspired music video, this is a track that you would expect to hear in the outro of Eli Roth's next film (maybe in a revival of the Cabin Fever series). Splatter fans everywhere will feel a sense of familiarity when listening to this album, further reinforced by "New Depravity."

The reputation CHASING TITANS has built needs no further explanation; they have potential that has yet to be taken advantage of. For a new band to be the only heavy sound gracing the charts is a feat on its own, and I would love to see them grow in complexity with age, maybe following in the footsteps of ICE NINE KILLS but with heavier vocals. I hope their rise in exposure will put a spotlight on bands coming out of New Zealand, and their upcoming releases will be something for global metalcore fans to wait for in anticipation.
