PRESS

"...this is a thunder fucking jaw dropper of an album... The self-titled debut from half Brooklynite, half Kansasian metal outfit Godmaker is, to put things short, sludge metal done absolutely right... When I hear an album like this I really just want to slap you in the head and make you listen to it. That?s right, I wish you were here. RIGHT HERE. With me. Together. So I could see the look on your dumb face when Godmaker shoots a cannon full of gravel-ridden lava at it." - The Bent Unit

"Thankfully, the dudes that comprise Godmaker are no slouches in the heavy department whatsoever... this band of beardos bring the thunder with an unbridled fury that would fell Zeus himself?" - Metal Sucks

"It?s a towering titan of a track, venturing into a dozen different sonic territories through its 8-minute duration, with badass riffage and crushing drums tying everything together. It?s a tapestry of labyrinthian riffs, throat-shredding vocals, and almost schizophrenic shifts, but it all meshes well in the end. ?Megalith? covers an album?s worth of textures in the span of one song, so you can look forward to hearing how far they take it on the whole record. Listen to the track above and turn it way the fuck up." - Zumic

"Let's not fuck around here folks. Godmaker's S/T debut album is a stunning album packed full of awesome riffs. Let me just cut to the chase and say ? Godmaker ? is heavy, loud and angry as hell. If you're a fan of Red Fang, Kyuss and Mastodon then prepare to meet Godmaker as they will impress you in a big way." - The Sludgelord

"The thunderous drums, riff and rhythm of it's intro is so vicious and then we hit the slower stoner transition. Man prepare yourself for a fucking ride. The rawness of the vocals are a perfect compliment to the heavy rhythm section flowing up front. There is indeed a method to their groovy madness as the band slide scales between fast and slow breakdowns. It comes off as something akin to rhythmically tossing gas on a flame. The interplay between all the elements of the band is so heavy and spot on." - Heavy Metal Textbooks

"The new track is the eight minute behemoth, ?Megalith?, that churns out devastatingly crushing and catchy riff after riff. The song sounds like a mash-up between all the best parts of Sleep and sister band High on Fire." - American Aftermath

RELEASES

Godmaker
Godmaker (LP)
ALR007

Godmaker is two New Yorkers and two Kansans who combine forces to crush your soul, break your heart, and rattle your innards. This is punishingly/defiantly heavy music that inhabits darker parts of the sonic spectrum. Atmospheric and thunderously loud riffs are combined with bursts of sonic virtuosity and sparse minimalism to create structures that are violently technical while swinging as hard as they can. Listeners tend to be left hopelessly head-lobbing with a shit-eating grin.
