"God Mother are one of Sweden's most vicious exports..."
"God Mother, the Swedish powerhouse signed to Party Smasher Inc, escape easy classification. Their blend of sludge, hardcore, punk and grindcore is blistering."
"An utterly relentless burst of skittish Swedish metal... God Mother have basically taken spazzy, Melvinsy, HM-2-y mathcore to Pluto."
"A pummeling rapture of audio violence."
"After 20 years of touring the world and playing thousands of shows with thousands of bands, it is hard to impress me. But Sweden has done it again. God Mother is an undeniable 'force majeure' that demands attention like bands did in the old days, by just being that fucking good. Torch, officially passed!"
–Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan
Vilseledd will be released October 20th on Party Smasher Inc, the label founded by Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan.
On Vilseledd, God Mother packs hardcore, grind, sludge, and noise 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.
The band'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.
The "Weak" video was filmed by David Ahrström and Pär Rockner, and edited by Oleg Rooz.
