In this episode of the Adventures of Pipeman, Pipeman interviews Louie from Walk With Titans, who has just released some new music on Rock Shots records. Pipeman and Louie discuss the impact of the pandemic on their creative process, with Louie explaining how the restrictive sanitary measures in Quebec made it difficult for them to produce the album. Louie shares how they recorded the vocals in a studio, while everything else was recorded by himself and Nick, the other guitar player. They also talk about how the pandemic made it challenging for the band to play together in the same room, which they only recently started doing.
Despite the challenges, Louie shares how the band was able to create great music despite being physically apart. Pipeman comments on the chemistry that's missing when musicians are not together in the same room, and Louie agrees, but adds that they were able to create a connection with the songs even though they were not physically together. Pipeman also points out that Louie's band's experience of starting during the pandemic is a unique story that they could share in the future.
The interview concludes with Pipeman asking Louie about the new album and what fans can expect from it. Louie talks about the album's sound and how it's a blend of different genres, including metalcore and post-hardcore. He also encourages listeners to check out the album, which is now available on Rock Shots records.

Rockshots Records is proud to announce their signing of Walk With Titans for the release of their debut album “Olympian Dystopia” on May 26th, 2023. Based in Montreal, Canada, the band’s goal is to bring all the epic elements you’d expect from a power metal band with a twist of Greek Mythology. On “Olympian Dystopia” the quintet showcases their writing and technical skills.
Today, the band presents their first story and single accompanied by a music video. Entitled “Seven Against Thebes”, the track tells the tale of the seven champions in Greek mythology who made war on Thebes, Adrastus, Amphiaraus, Capaneus, Hippomedon, Polynices, Tydeus, and Parthenopaeus. They were chosen by Adrastus, the king of Argos, to be the captains of an Argive army whose purpose was to restore Oedipus’ son Polynices to the Theban throne.
