Stockholm, Sweden’s God Mother have come a long way in the last 10 years. The band’s 2015 full-length, Maktbehov, was miles ahead of their debut EP and managed to garner the attention of guitarist Ben Weinman of The Dillinger Escape Plan, who signed the band to his own label Party Smasher Inc. for their 2017 LP, Vilseledd.
Now the band have returned with their new EP, Obeveklig, and today we have the pleasure of bringing an exclusive premiere of the whole damn thing. Drawing influence from their past tour mates, the new EP introduces more angular dissonance fans of SLC’s Cult Leader might enjoy along with the already furious crossover of chaotic hardcore and grindcore the band has established on previous releases.
The EP’s opener, “Host Body,” while aggressive, still allows its memorable, sludgy closing riff a few more repeats before launching into the EP’s lead single and strongest showing, “Teething,” a succinct and dissonant assault of angular riffs, blast beats, and tortured vocals.
“Obeveklig” 7″ vinyl preorders are now available on Bandcamp
