Titan biography
TITAN are a hardcore/post-metal group from Toronto, formed as a four-piece in 2006 before solidifying into a quintet in late 2007. They are currently signed to Hypaethral Records, who released their latest album, 2012's "Burn", which is available for a name-your-price download on the label's Bandcamp page.

TITAN play a style of post-metal heavily rooted in both sludge and hardcore, and come off with a very grandiose, almost soundtrack-like vibe. The band members cite everything from Canadian hardcore and punk to 70's prog rock as their influences. While earlier releases have the band sounding more like fellow hardcore rockers and countrymen CURSED, later releases show the band slowing down and lengthening out their style to make room for more subtle sonic changes and emotional draw, while still adding layers upon layers of crushing heaviness the post-metal genre is well known for. TITAN will appeal to fans of modern, hardcore-influenced post-sludge like NEUROSIS, MOUTH OF THE ARCHITECT, and early CULT OF LUNA.

Review by thwok

— First review of this album —
3 stars I downloaded this EP a few weeks ago, but I didn't have a chance to listen to it actively until recently. Since Titan's music isn't reviewed on Prog Archives, or its great sister site Metal Music Archives, I figured it was about time someone did. At first, I was going to make the recognized leaders of the sludge and post metal subgenres as my primary point for comparison. Then I decided that was not entirely not fair. Is it fair to compare other psychedelic bands to Pink Floyd, whose early albums were practically start of the subgenre? So, Titan should get credit for taking the basic parameters of sludge and post metal and adding other elements to it. It's one of the definitions of progressiveness. I do hear some slight changes in the overall sound on Scraps of a Feast compared to some of their earlier music. I'm not a musician although I do sing, so I appreciate the skill needed to do what Titan does. Furthermore, I can only imagine how difficult it is to come up with anything musically that hasn't been done before.

In the minus column, James doesn't have a very compelling voice. The three songs here sound a lot like each other. A large part of the music I listen to is inspired by post, sludge, or death/dark metal. If that's the kind of thing I'm wanting to listen to, I'm more likely to turn to Canvas Solaris, Baroness, or Cult of Luna. So, Scraps of a Feast gets no more than 3 stars. Good, but not really excellent.

Thanks to Rune2000 for the artist addition.
