Godsticks are a four-piece progressive heavy rock band from South Wales, formed in 2008. Having toured extensively throughout Europe with The Aristocrats and Mike Keneally, most recently they can be found showcasing their newer, heavier material supporting bands such as Textures and Dorje. Their fourth full length studio album ‘Faced With Rage’ was released to critical acclaim via Kscope in October 2017 and was described by Prog Magazine as “A winning blend of channelled aggression and emotional depth, combining lyrical intelligence and instrumental fireworks”.
Having already been hailed by the UK’s Metal Hammer magazine as “one of the UK’s most idiosyncratic rock bands”, with their new album Godsticks have delivered on their promise to be just as heavy as their self-released 2015 album ‘Emergence’ but this time with a darker feel and more industrial sound. ‘Faced With Rage’ is full of thundering riffs, intricate solos, and – as often is the case with Godsticks – a few surprises too.
Godsticks are: Darran Charles (vocals, guitar, keys), Dan Nelson (bass), Gavin Bushell (guitar) and Tom Price (drums).
