Earlier this month, the band launched a stream of "Sacred Soil." The stream marked the second track off of the EP to see light of day, following Decibel Magazine's November 2017 premiere of "A Grand Reclamation."
Writing and rehearsing for A Grand Reclamation commenced early 2017, and November 2017 saw the band head into the fabled Academy studio, with fellow MY DYING BRIDE alumni Dan Mullins at the desk. The EP features stunning artwork from Brian D'Agosta, whose credits include VALLENFYRE, IMPLORE and others.
GODTHRYMM is a reconnection of old brothers with a shared musical past, to create crushing new apocalyptic metal that is a culmination of everything musical that has brought us to this present day. With Hamish Glencross (VALLENFYRE, ex-MY DYING BRIDE, ex-SOLSTICE) on lead vocals and guitar, rejoined with old partners Chaz Netherwood (ex-SOLSTICE) on guitar, and Shaun Taylor Steels (MY DYING BRIDE, ex-ANATHEMA, ex-SOLSTICE) on drums. The line-up was completed by the addition of Rich Mumford of MALEDICTION on bass. They have a long and celebrated history of writing and recording together, and have been channeling this dark magic again, but with the added dimension of the extra experience gained over the years. Musically, creating crushing, apocalyptic doom metal, with the influence of the epic and the melancholy found in their combined past musical outputs.
