Search Results for "Godhunter"

Desert doom contingent Godhunter have released a track from pending political and personal purge Codex Narco, a lengthy and smoldering track called “Like Glass Under Black Fingernails”. The vocals vary from disgusted snarl to melodic passages that call to mind Only Living Witness, Twitching Tongues or Section 8 in a call and response style over thundering rhythm tracks and other layers that combine to create a vortex of painful visions and maximize the feelings at play.

Find out the background on the song’s deeper meanings and listen to it HERE.

Codex Narco will see digital release through Battleground Records and cassette release through Baby Tooth Records on May 19th; preorders are now posted HERE.

The Godhunter project remains an interesting and evolving band , both opaque in what they will do next and yet politically in your face at the same time. Turns out that “next” is finally another release. Codex Narco is the newest record, which features contributions from members of CHRCH, Demon Lung, Mountaineer, Thorne, Methra, and others and more inward looking song topics, rumor has it.

I’m loving the cover art. It makes me think of SST Records if they’d designed pagan children’s books or something instead of St Vitus and Black Flag records.

In line with GODHUNTER’s commitment to speaking out about social issues, the proceeds of Codex Narco’s sales will be donated to Planned Parenthood, the statement reflected in the pink color scheme of the artwork by Bailey Illustration and layout by Cool Ghoul Ltd. (Ethan McCarthy of Primitive Man). Codex Narco was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege, and features a cover of Tegan & Sara’s “Walking With A Ghost,” for which a video is being created to support suicide prevention.

“Pursuit/Predator,” GODHUNTER‘s latest plodding and antagonizing anthem and the lead track to the band’s upcoming GH/0ST:S split LP with Metal Riot very much approved band SECRETS OF THE SKY, is now playing a month ahead of the album’s release at Invisible Oranges.

The song summons the memory of the Zodiac Killer and churns with violence and the sociology of stress in the zeitgeist. It all ends in an early-Kylesa style tribal melt down with shouts towards the sun, beckoning for reason’s  justice.

Oakland-based sextet, Secrets Of The Sky,will begin their next West Coast trek in just one week, followed by another tour of the coast just several weeks later.


First up, Secrets of The Sky will head out on a headlining voyage next Friday, March 28th, with a week-and-a-half of shows confirmed throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah, Colorado and across their native California through the second week of April.


Secrets Of The Sky‘s upcoming West Coast tour with Godhunter was also announced earlier this week. On June 6th and 7th the two acts will rendezvous at the annual Doom In June Fest in Las Vegas, both set to perform amidst the lineup including Novembers Doom, Christian Mistress, Acid Witch, Ides of Gemini, Demon Lung and more. From there they’ll co-headline a course through Oakland, San Luis Obispo, Glendale, Palm Desert, Tucson and Phoenix. A special collaborative release from both bands is presently being finalized to be sold on this tour, with full details to be announced in the coming days.


The six-member crew has also been busy raking in new endorsements over recent weeks in efforts to continually re-maximize their massive auditory delivery, and recent sponsorships from Spector Basses, Dean Markley Strings, Eventide effect pedals and Pigtronix effect pedals have all been sanctioned.


Italian label, Kolony Records, released To Sail Black Waters worldwide in October, exposing the planet to the band’s expansive, powerhouse style of fusing progressive elements into their crushing doom metal foundation. Three of the band’s six members each contribute with multiple instruments, layering synth/keys, violins and an array of vocal styles atop the crushing rhythm section and massive triple guitar attack, resulting in a dense and stunning forty-one minute opus. Bulldozing over doom, death, black, prog and post-metal genre boundaries, the expansive power of To Sail Black Waters was recorded over an eight month period of recording sessions at Trident Studios with engineer/producer Juan Urteaga (Testament, Machine Head, Cattle Decapitation), and appeared on over a dozen best of 2013 lists including Decibel, MetalSucks, Metal Injection, Metal Insider and more.


Watch SECRETS OF THE SKY’s “Decline” video, which was filmed with Andrew Nethery (Melvins, Kyuss Lives, Dead Meadow) at THIS LOCATION, and explore To Sail Black Waters in its entirety HERE.

Godhunter team with Ryan Butler and The Compound

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Wednesday, January 15, 2014 at 1:25 AM (PST)


While brutalizing Tucson-based sludgecore quintet, GODHUNTER, has amassed a plethora of independent recordings since their late 2009 inception, including several split vinyl releases, and their 2011-released Wolves EP, City Of Dust marks the band’s first official LP. The band already bears an undeniable kinship to goliaths Noothgrush, Weedeater, Bongzilla and Sourvein, yet the sprawling pending LP shows the band exploring even more depth, with more sonically-destructive tones, more diverse, melodic song structures and even acoustic strings and gravelly, clean vocal segments atop the sun-baked bed of earthmoving roared vocals and gang chants. More than simply a collection of songs amassed for the purpose of releasing an album, City Of Dust presents a fully conceptual statement, lyrically delivering a political by-the-throat theme which unravels through the bitter finale. The album’s eight anthems engulf exactly fifty minutes of brand new material, recorded with trusted cohort Ryan Butler (Landmine Marathon, Unruh) at his Arcane Digital Studios (Exhumed, Misery Index), where GODHUNTER’s Wolves EP also came to fruition.

City Of Dust will be released cooperatively between the band’s own newly-founded Battleground Records and Earsplit PR’s also recently-formed label, The Compound. The first strike will see the album disbursed on CD digipak and digital download on February 18th, 2014, followed by a limited, deluxe 12” LP version shortly thereafter. The LP’s cover artwork was created by Tucson-based artist Rudy Flores, marking his return after handling the artwork for Wolves as well.

GODHUNTER will perform constantly and tour new areas of the country throughout all of 2014.
