God Damn

*Guest Editor Pick

After the fabulous anvil of an album ‘Vultures’ (2015) was, midlands duo God Damn return with a record no doubt of same weight, if not fatter. Thus, even more crushing… hold on to your heads folks!

Blending a variety of heavy styles, there’s definitely a strong Melvins influence in the music. Pummelling drums and disorientating, bittersweet guitars with a fuck load of fuzz and crackling, marvellous.

With the release imminent, GD have unveiled new tune “Fake Prison”, which sits pretty well with me.  At just under three minutes, the vocals are as always with Thom Edward frightening and no holds barred. Likewise, the drumming from Ash Weaver is stunning; he’s one of the best drummers around at the minute, go on, say he’s not! The sheer power and sound these guys can get live is unreal, I wholeheartedly recommend you go.

‘Everything Ever’, which is quite an apt title if you look at what music the band is influenced by, is due for release on 23rd September via One Little Indian Records.

  1. Sing This
  2. Ghost
