When it comes to contemplating 2010's heavy music panorama, Salt Lake City's CULT LEADER finds its place among the bands that are offering a step-up in aggression, finding a way to update our idea of catharsis through total musical chaos.
CULT LEADER emerged in 2013 from GAZA dissolution, and although it continues in many aspects its former embodiment's work, it clearly evolved in a more contrasted way, fueling its energy with harcore/crust influences balanced by an attraction for morbid ballades and suspended moments of hopelessness.
So far the band released two Eps and two LPs through Jacob Bannon's label Deathwish Inc. (Converge, Oathbreaker, Code Orange, Deafheaven...) all four of them bearing the marks of creative challenges and technical virtuosity. This is not only brutal violence, it EATS you, it FLOODS you in a way no other band ever did.
Four headed terror CULT LEADER is back with a forward-thinking, highly contrasted and extreme second LP "A Patient Man" (Deathwish Inc.) mixing hardcore/crust energy with avant-garde death metal and sludge riffing. Technically impressive jewelry alternating pure aggression with melodic depression.
Following two self-released EP's and a critically acclaimed full length recording, God Mother signed to Party Smasher Inc. records, home of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Giraffe Tongue Orchestra, and Primitive Weapons.
A four-piece powerhouse, from the depths of the Swedish hardcore underground, ‘God Mother’ has been a rising force since its inception in 2012.
God Mother's debut, Maktbehov, was easily one of Metal’s most exciting new releases in 2015, making many of the year’s top lists including Loudwire, Blunt Mag, Metal Injection, and was hailed by Pitchfork as "an asteroid crash of an album that renders most of its competition extinct.”
Across 14 tracks, God Mother’s Party Smasher Inc. debut, “Vilseledd,” out October 20th, 2017, packs hardcore, grind, sludge, and noise into lethal projectiles, fueled by bilingual lyrics denouncing society's ignorance, in both Swedish and English. It received world wide recognition and ended up as one of the most celebrated metal releases 2017 getting great reviews and making the top list of many magazines and blogs such as, Metal Injection and Loudwire.
The band has toured extensively around the world in areas like, USA, Europe, Central America, South Africa and the UK, with acts such as The Dillinger Escape Plan, Cult Leader, and The Number 12 Looks Like You. They have played several prestigious international metal festivals like Brutal Assault, Obscene Extreme, a showcase at SXSW in Austin and ArcTanGent."
