"God Mother, the Swedish powerhouse signed to Party Smasher Inc, escape easy classification. Their blend of sludge, hardcore, punk and grindcore is blistering."
Featuring guest vocals by Keijo Niinimaa of Rotten Sound, new God Mother track "Tar Mirror" premiered today via Decibel.
"Tar Mirror" appears on the Swedish band's new album Vilseledd, out September 29th on Party Smasher Inc, the label founded by Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan.
On Vilseledd, God Mother packs hardcore, grind, and sludge into lethal projectiles, fueled by bilingual lyrics denouncing society's ignorance, in both Swedish and English. The sound is electrifying – inspired as much by the grinding speed of Nasum and Rotten Sound as by the almighty weight of the Melvins. God Mother's 2015 debut Maktbehov was hailed by Pitchfork as "an asteroid crash of an album that renders most of its competition extinct."
Vilseledd was recorded at Soundtrade Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, the historic studio where artists from ABBA to Rammstein have made music. The album was mixed and mastered by Magnus Lindberg of Cult of Luna.
God Mother is on tour now in Europe with The Dillinger Escape Plan.
