Chariots of the Gods presents : Ages Unsung

CA$ 3,348

                     "Let the poets sing of the wars of Gods and Men" 

Ages Unsung is ‘’Chariots of the Gods’’ new album set to be released this summer.

Unfortunately, there are huge costs and tiny (to almost none) revenues with trying to put the best product we can out there. Our pockets are therefore much smaller than our ambition and the potential of the project.

After discovering what a great community there is on Kickstarter driven by passion, cooperation, and massive support, and how a great campaign can truly benefit the contributors, we realized that this was the best thing to do.

We are therefore running this crowdfunding campaign not only to help us fund our biggest and best project ever made but also : 

  • To be able to offer more to our fans than what our budget limits us to, 
  • To maximize the potential of the project,
  • To be part of a movement and great community that we have just discovered,
  • To give everyone the opportunity to be included in the project,
  • To gauge the interest in this project,
  • To thank our contributors with limited edition merchandise.

 Our goal for this campaign is to get 3000$ to help us with the costs of producing and promoting our next album.

  • Produce the best material we can with the resources we have;
  • Deliver all the pledge rewards we promised;
  • Unlock the rewards promised for each stretch goal we reach.
  • 3500$: We release a new lyric video
  • 4500$: We release a new tank-top and add it in extra to every perk package order from 85$/up.
  • 6000$: Release new music video
  • 9000$: Go back in studio to record 2 new songs available online for free download.

 We don’t expect everyone to like what we do, but just by spreading the word, you might turn a friend into a new fan or even help us reach places/people that we would never have been able to reach without your help. This way, you can make a serious difference to this campaign.

We understand that we’re not the only ones who are broke and not everyone has a credit card. However, you can still help and be part of the project without any monetary contribution. Here are alternative contributions you can make to help us succeed:

  • Share our campaign on social medias
  • Share our campaign video on social medias
  • Show our material to your friends, family and anyone who might be potentially interested in what we do.

Social networking is a fast and powerful vehicle that can be as helpful and ressourceful as money.

Blitzing out of Canada's capital with their punishing hard-rock rooted in heavy metal, Chariots of the Gods has-been on one sole assignment since 2007: shredding endlessly in a neighborhood near you.

The five-piece band gave birth to their first EP "Reverence" in 2010. Their first full length album, "Tides of War", was produced by music legend Glen Robinson (Queensryche, Gwar, Annihilator) in 2013.
In 2014, the band went on their first international tour in Cuba and were the first Canadian metal band to do so.

Chariots of the Gods are now set to storm the world with the musical assault that is their latest masterpiece: "Ages Unsung".

 In the beginning there was nothingness and with a single taste the mind was born. There is more to this story than we know; From the first spark that was lit in the eyes of Man to the cosmic upheaval of creation.

This is a tale of Gods and monsters. Of the rise of Man and the fall of great civilisations. A world of warring behemoths and leviathans, of ancient gods and secret kings.

What I say to you now, know that all of this has already happened and will happen again.

Eons passed and the sands of time buried deep the secrets of the past. As our faith and heritage faded into our unconscious mind and concrete jungles arose all around us to stand as the mausoleum of our salvation, We did not heed the call.

Only too late did see the truth; The legends, the myths, the stories of old are true. Ancient forces would awaken once more and turn the world upside down.

A great darkness laid before us who thought were the chosen people. Our eyes were opened to the harsh reality that we are but pawns in a greater game. Man stepped forth into oblivion. Trying to hold unto what once was without even knowing that his destiny was already written.

Naked and afraid, we are now prey in a hostile world. No longer do we have dominion over the earth. Through ancient knowledge we must renew our bond with our sacred-mother if we are to survive this apocalypse.

So gather-round, oh children of Man, for let us sing of those days long gone. Let us not forget the errors of the past. Let us not forget where we came from.

Let us sing of ages unsung.

Risks and challenges

As we mentioned earlier, this is our biggest project ever made and there are a lot of factors and individuals involved: producers, printers, logistic, finance, companies and agencies. Sometimes, having that many variables at the same time, can cause logistical problems which ultimately causes delays. Lost packages or destroyed supplies at the warehouse are two possibilities amongst the long list of “what can go wrong” in the process of producing & shipping merchandise. However, we have engagements and promises that we are 100% dedicated to fulfill. IF a situation would prevent us to fulfill those, we would let everyone in the know and keep an active communication with our contributors to solve any present problem.
