We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of False Gods’ new EP Reports From Oblivion (listen below), which is scheduled to be officially released on August 18th. The EP is the follow-up to their debut Wastelands, which was released in the spring of 2016.
New York heavy-hitters False Gods have their own take on metal, a unique blend of southern-sludge influenced doom, mixed with some old school thrash-hardcore. The result is brash, bulldozing and in your face, shifting gears like a snow plow coming down the side of a steep mountain.
Coming together in 2015 out of the rubble of the previous band Skeletondealer, False Gods set out with the goal of creating something that wasn’t going to fit into any one metal subgenre. Founding member Greg March recorded the guitars and drums for a demo that would later become the foundation for their debut release. After playing the demo recordings for band-mate Mike Stack they rounded out the line-up and immediately recorded the 5 songs at Force Studios in Ronkonkoma, New York with Producer Joe Cincotta (This is Hell, Suffocation, Incendiary). Their EP Wasteland was released on April 22nd 2016 and extremely positively received by a ravenous audience. Currently the band is doing some regional weekend runs to promote their EP and have already shared the stage with Crowbar, Abigail Williams and Wolvhammer. Plans are in the works for more East Coast runs and a 2017 Fall tour.
With influences ranging from Eyehategod, Crowbar, Godflesh, Carnivore, Black Flag, Integrity, St. Vitus, Amebix, Black Sabbath, Skullflower, SWANS and Killing Joke, the members of False Gods embrace all forms of extreme and heavy music, which in turn helps them fulfill their musical vision: creating powerful sounds, telling the bitter truth of reality and letting the chips fall where they may.
