chuck billy comments, “I’m very excited and proud to release the video for the Titans of Creation album. We were lucky to have Gene Hoglan on drums before he left. Now fans can watch us play the entire album at home with friends and create their own mosh pit in their living room.
Eric Peterson comments, “We’re happy to announce something we’ve always wanted to do! A performance video for each song in our latest release titans of creation.
It almost didn’t happen as we found out from Gene that he was going to split up but we left on a good note and agreed that we should nail that last idea I think it’s really killer and can’t wait for everyone to see it! We kept it simple and added some visuals on some songs for some vibe to the song, overall great to listen to and watch us jam these killer new songs! I can’t wait to do it again on the next album too!
