Relatively unknown, Titan Slayer is a Russian based electronic music project that hasn't really been discovered yet. Started by Vlad Zhuravlyov, I got to know the act just a bit more through a simple ten question ask and answer.

Let's have a little introduction about yourself. Who are you, and what do you do?

Vlad - "I live in the distant and cold land of Siberia, so most of my time is spent at home writing music. At the moment, I've been taking pathetic attempts to finish my bachelor degree."

When did you first start up your project, Titan Slayer?

Vlad - "It all started in 2007 when I first started working with music. I will not describe myself as becoming more or less a professional musician, except to say that this process took 7 years. So, the birthday of Titan Slayer is 30 September of 2014, and it is essentially the result of all this hard work."

What inspired you to really get Titan Slayer moving? And which artists are your main influences?

Vlad - "Moving my project occurs naturally. For example sometimes I get up in the morning saying to myself , ' It's time to do something serious?. And I do it. Of course prospects are very important. For example, one of my goals was to release my single and upcoming albums on the FiXT store and others. Actually it happened with my debut release.

Quite a lot of artists. Celldweller, James Dooley, Jack Trammell, Blue Stahli and Nine Inch Nails. Moreover I can mention Audiomachine, Two Steps from Hell."

You say that you focus on creating epic music for films and games. Have you actually written a soundtrack for anything yet? Do you have one in progress.

Vlad - "Yes, I worked on the soundtrack for the movie, which is called 'Dangerous Days'. Unfortunately, I did not finish the job, but I can say that this is a sci-fi movie with elements of time travel. I also wrote the soundtrack for the game Quake 4 ? False Dawn.

At the moment I'm finishing writing the music for the audio-book about a serial killer. Maybe I'll do a separate release of the soundtrack. If you liked the album Nine Inch Nails ? 'Ghosts', then I think you will appreciate my work."

Your debut single, "Desolated Heroes" has just released. What were you trying to accomplish with this track?

Vlad - "As I said above, I wanted to do something that I had not previously done. I wanted to make a powerful, energetic and epic mix of electronics, orchestra and rock. At the same time, I wanted it to all sound harmonious."

And, is the single part of a full length release that you're currently working on?

Vlad - "Yes, it is. I'm working on a full-length album, which I think will be about 10 tracks, and every track I try to make totally unique, at the same time I try to stay make them stay within the genre of the album. I think it will be fun."

How did you get signed to Venator Music? Did you send in a demo to the label? Or did they discover you?

Vlad - "In July 2014, I wrote to Max in the social network, and sent him 2 demo tracks. He (and Ed) liked the work, and since then I signed to Venator Music."

When are you planning on having your first full length album out?

Vlad - "At best, during the Christmas holidays 2014."

And, what's in the future for Titan Slayer? Are you going to be doing gigs? Or something else?

Vlad - "For the near future I have a contract with the Venator Music (for a 1 year), so this time I'm going to work to its fullest. For sure everything will be super cool!"

I thank you for your time, and leave the space below free for you to say as you wish.

Vlad - "Thanks for the interview."

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
