Nashville’s Noise Trio THE BY GODS Dropped A New Cut From Upcoming LP – Here’s ‘BLACK WAVE’…

Daily fuel to load your sonic batteries…

12 December 2019


Who: A noisy Nashville, Tennessee trio that used to describe their sonic mission as “trying to drill through your skull to plant our hook-laden songs in your grey matter. Squalls of feedback interrupting repetitive chords signaling the return to a chorus, it’s what we’ve come to recognize as the formula; a recipe for loud/quiet/loud.”

Track: BLACK WAVE – new cut from their upcoming album ‘Goldy‘, out 21 February 2020

Score: After the groovy bass/drums driven lead-single Eureka this noisy three-piece
turbo shared a second mighty cut from their forthcoming album. ‘BLACK WAVE‘ is
a hot burning, melodious jackhammer that totally explodes after an electrifying intro. Striking percussion, screamy guitars and perfervid vocals. Raucous passion in motion.

THE BY GODS With Another Divine Hammer – Here’s SILVER LINE…

Sonic havoc that thrills us in a way we want to scream out loud…

29 August 2017


Who: three wannabes: Tye Hammonds and husband and wife duo, Natalie and George Pauley

Location: Nashville, Tennessee, US

Sound:they try to drill through your skull to plant their hook-laden songs in your grey matter. Squalls of feedback interrupting repetitive chords signaling the return to a chorus, it’s what we’ve come to recognize as the formula; a recipe for loud/quiet/loud...”

Track: SILVER LINE – cut from upcoming new album MOVE ON…

Score: we already featured this exciting trio a couple of weeks ago with another explosive cracker, called ‘Wait Up’, from their forthcoming longplayer on our Seven In The Mix!. And now ‘Silver Line‘ confirms the band’s huge potential with a ‘here were are‘ exclamation mark! What we hear and feel is an amplified, melodic and distorted sound mix of The Afghan Whigs‘ passion and the grungy catchiness of Foo Fighters. Final result: spirited and robust intensity empowered with big guitars you want to hear over and over again. Ace score!…

4/ ‘Spectacular Bid’ by NORMA (Sweden)
Erik Vallin (bass/vocals) was inspired to write this song by a picture, belonging to his grandfather, of a race horse that he remembered from his childhood. You can actually hear the horses in this sensitive and cinematic sound scape. Folks, we have a winner!

5/ ‘Wait Up’ by THE BY GODS (Nashville, Tennessee, US)
A quiet, yet solid bass/drum intro with reflective vocals all over it turns suddenly in an apocalyptic wall-of-sound! Perfect outburst to start a fight with your demons! Hell yeah!
