Godsticks Short Info

"Dark and muscular prog heaviness from one of the UK's most idiosyncratic rock bands" [Metal Hammer]

Godsticks are a four-piece progressive heavy rock band from South Wales, formed in 2008. Having toured extensively throughout Europe with acts such as The Aristocrats, Mike Keneally and The Pineapple Thief, most recently they can be found showcasing their newer, heavier material supporting bands such as Textures and Dorje.

Their most recent album, Emergence, was produced by James Loughrey (known for his work with acts such as Skindred, Manic Street Preachers and Def Leppard). It received great reviews and signified a milestone in the progression of the band from complex eclectic prog-rock to a more focused, heavier progressive metal style filled with addictive grooves and memorable choruses. Total Guitar Magazine said “Emergence is a rare thing – an album of technically astounding prog-metal replete with hooks and melodies".

Typically for this band, who are difficult to pin down to a specific genre, Emergence has been likened to a variety of different bands at the heavier end of the progressive spectrum, including Mastodon, Rush, and Alice in Chains.

Godsticks are currently writing their fourth album, which promises to be full of thundering riffs, intricate solos, and – as often is the case - a few surprises too.
