A flurry of distorted guitar signals the start of ‘Horus’, before the band come charging in, creating a thick wall of disconcerting rock noise that aims to creep you out as much as it does thrill you. With a lyrical theme that references the Egyptian Sun god Horus (who has the body of a man, a birds head, with one eye the sun and the other the moon!), ‘Horus’ explores utopian ideas with a brooding, dark musical background that is set to pulverise when the band start touring across the UK from early September.
Hailing from the heart of the Black Country, God Damn fuse ‘Bleach’ era Nirvana, Jesus Lizard, ‘Surfer Rosa’ era Pixies and At The Drive In influences whilst swearing allegiance to the ‘Seven J’s’ of their Holy Bible: Hendrix, Homme, Cash, White, Page, Bonham and Jesse ‘The Devil’ Hughes (Eagles of Death Metal).
Onstage, God Damn - Thom Edward (guitars/vocals) and Ash Weaver (drums) – are pure attack: molten pop hooks galvanized in a blaze of bludgeoning riffs and furiously propulsive percussion. Previously supporting the likes of Superfood, Wet Nuns, Icarus Line and Gay For Johnny Depp.
