GODZ Chaos Star

In the ancient times of grief and despair when the war between God and man raged across the realms, a prophecy emerged from the ash of a thousand battles. The souls of fallen mortals bellowed upwards from the kingdoms beneath Mount Olympus, shrieking in agony and defeat. The Gods harnessed these formless screams, forever locking them within their weapons of war. Hephaestus, with his cunning talent as the blacksmith for the Gods, carefully converted these wailing weapons into instruments of celebration, giving torturous purpose to those trapped inside. HADES - King of the Underworld, KRONOS - Leader of all Titans, ARES - God of War and Violence, and DIONYSUS - God of Wine and Ecstasy took these instruments to the highest peak of Mount Olympus, and with each bloody victory below, they commenced in ceremonious display. The four Gods performed musical celebrations of colossal nature, honoring the strength and unrelenting viciousness that the Gods wrought unto rebellious man. Their victorious commemoration could be heard all across the scorched lands of Greece.

The Gods, their thirst for vengeance unquenched, vowed to forever hail their wartime accomplishments into future generations. Upon their deaths, they sealed themselves inside their own instruments, aiming to reincarnate their spirits into the bodies of undeserving future man. With this tactic, they sought to once again remind the mortal world of their resilient fortitude and mighty superiority.

After years of silence, the booming calamity that is, HADES, ARES, and DIONYSUS has found its dormancy inside the bodies of mortal men, each from humble beginnings across a vast continent on today's Earth. These men, oblivious to the purpose that exists within them, have taken up the instruments of the Gods and set out to fulfill the prophecy that forged itself on Mount Olympus many lifetimes ago...

A few of the Greek gods have left Mount Olympus and taken human vessels to form a new powerful pantheon on Earth in order to bring humanity something that equals the value of Prometheus’ stolen fire. With KRONOS (Leader of all Titans) on vocals, HADES (God of the Underworld, Ruler of the Dead) on lead guitar/backup vocals, ARES (God of War & Raw Violence) on drums/percussion, & DIONYSUS (God of Madness, Ecstasy & Wine) on rhythm guitar they have brought a new revival to the rock music genre.

GODZ have come to save the human race with their distinct brand of hard rock/symphonic metal and their various mythological influences. The band’s 13 track debut album CULTUM comprises of hard rock anthems, heavy/melodic metal, industrial songs and epic synth-driven tunes that break the mold in the evolution of metal music. Their unique sound is something straight out of the Elysium Fields but also a cross between bands like Korn, NIN, Bring Me the Horizon and Depeche Mode.

The odyssey of forming this celestial alliance began when longtime touring musician, (HADES), decided to take a step back from his touring band to focus on creating an original sound. A sound that was cultivated through fifteen years of touring and learning the pros & cons of navigating an oversaturated music scene, where taking chances musically has been a forgotten art. Instead of walking the typical road of writing what record labels and radio listeners are used to hearing, the focus became creating a theatrical look/live show and sound based on the artistic freedom of bands that really had an opportunity to be creative in their own art such as Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson and Korn.

February of 2018 the band entered Amplify Studios in Billings, MT, and began tracking 13 songs. Deciding to go against the grain of many artists of the last decade, they opted to track live drums on the album instead of the typical method of using programmed ones. The group wanted to really dive into the old school method of creating a different tonality to the album. So many records of today have such a similar sound and they wanted to really branch out musically by using old piano tones and new wave style synths. They also explored old school guitar tones for melodies and even used vocoder on many of the vocal tracks on the record. Long-time friend of Jesse’s, producer Logan Mader (Machine Head, Soulfly, Once Human) was brought in to help create dynamic synth tones and mix/master the album. Bassist Matt Snell (ex Five Finger Death Punch) played on the entire album and brought a dynamic sound to Cultum!

The band’s first single perfectly combines all of the harmonizing aspects of their debut album. It features rhythmic and melodic guitars, heavy double bass drumming, as well as down-tuned guitar tones. The song includes both screaming and clean vocal hooks with symphonic melodies the listener will have trouble not singing along to. The single is set to hit radio everywhere in early spring and the music video will feature a teaser available on Youtube and VEVO in March 2018.

Currently, they are working on a documentary movie on the band as well as music videos for all 13 songs on the album. Two music videos have already been filmed and are in the process of being edited. An animated video is also in the works. The band prides themselves on their theatrical look and stage show theme, so fans are encouraged to join in. Masquerade masks are for sale at the merchandise booth before and after the show. The band is currently booking tours and festivals in the US, Canada and Europe. They are steadfast and determined to bring GODZ to every venue around the Globe.

On land a mortal man
No purpose and no plan
On stage there is a rage
A long forgotten age
The world in disarray
And here they are today
Against the silent odds
They have returned
