EYE OF THE ENEMY
Australian Metallers To Release New Album Titan THIS FRIDAY!
Melbourne metallers, Eye of the Enemy will release their brand new album, Titan, on Friday, October 11 via Art Is War Records.
Titan’s songs are connected by the thematic elements of deception, hubris and self-inflicted loss, a mixture of musically relentless aggression and serene sombreness.
Eye of the Enemy have produced their strongest and most varied record to date, combining melodic hooks and atmosphere with a gut-wrenching vocal performance to be reckoned with.
Eye of the Enemy have been raising hell within the metal scene since 2006 with the release of their demo and subsequent self-titled E.P in 2008. In 2010, they released their first full length album Weight of Redemption. It was nominated for album of the year against metal heavyweights across the globe and received worldwide critical acclaim.
In 2014 they made their mark with their long-awaited second album, The Vengeance Paradox. The album’s masterful blending of devastatingly heavy and soaring melodic elements solidified their sound and established them as one of the most exciting metal acts today. The Vengeance Paradox was included in Album Of The Year lists by a number of media outlets including HEAVY, Metal Obsession and the now sadly gone Triple M’s Distortion and Trendkill Magazine. Eye of the Enemy also won the Global Metal Apocalypse’s award for Breakthrough Australasian Metal Band of 2014!
Eye of the Enemy have been incredibly active of the Australian heavy music circuit, playing several notable shows and national tours with international bands including:
Amon Amarth (2 national tours) , Fleshgod Apocalypse, Fear Factory, At The Gates,
Children Of Bodom, Cradle Of Filth, Despised Icon, Malevolent Creation.
Screamfest Metal Festival (Edguy, Ensifirum, Cynic, Dark Funeral, Destoryer 666 and several more)
The Australian local metal scene has seen plenty of Eye of the Enemy action with the band having played Sonic Forge Festival, New Dead Festival and Brewtality Festival and many more.
Eye of the Enemy’s hugely successful 2015 Asian tour saw the band hit eight cities in five different countries, supporting Fleshgod Apocalypse in Hong Kong, Taipei, Osaka and Tokyo, playing alongside fellow Aussies Psycroptic and Ne Obliviscaris in Japan and then travelling to Busan, Seoul, Guangzhou and Wuhan for their own headline shows.
Eye of the Enemy are planning to return to the road in 2020.
