In the meantime the band played plenty shows in berlin from the beloved basements to supporting bands such as Heaters , Ex Cult, PC Worship.
Godchilla are three mysterious boys ripping sludgy waves. This Reykjavík-based surf-doom band first grabbed attention in 2013 upon releasing one song on 19 limited floppy disks. They quickly garnered a reputation for loud, intense live performances with elaborate visual and atmospheric elements. Their live intensity is equality reflected on their powerful debut album, Cosmatos, which came out in fall 2014 and was recorded in Stúdíó Sýrland. Their overall sound is a seamless blend of ethereal aggression, meditative patterns and shamanic grooves, which holds their audiences as devoted captive subjects.
GODCHILLA have been heralded with some mighty praise:
‘ One of the strangest bands I saw… [Godchilla] can really be described in no other way than “surf sludge.” If Dick Dale up and defected to Iceland and started a band with a bunch of dudes who worship Buzzoven and Crowbar, Godchilla would be the mind-melting result. ‘
HOW CAN YOU AFFORD TO MISS THAT?!
