The Skinny: Like an encompassing dust storm full of fire and broken whiskey bottles and expended weed smoke, Tucson, Arizona’s Godhunter are preparing to suffocate the planet with their devastating hymns this year. Through diehard D.I.Y. ethics and self-promotion, Godhunter have preyed upon the weak-minded scenesters and have defied pigeonholing genre classifications through a savage amalgamation of sheer heaviness, both live and through recorded proof via several EPs, split releases and compilation inclusions since their 2009 formation.
All five members of the band are heavily involved in the local scene and hail from other previous and current acts across the region, yet bring their most ferocious dynamics to life in Godhunter; the result is a sludge-bred sub-hardcore blend of caustic riffery laced with multiple scathing vocal approaches. Godhunter’s latest output, the 2011-released Wolves, showcases the band’s most crushing material to date, and while considered by the band to be an EP, the beast clocks in with over 32-minutes of material.
Wolves Track Listing:
01. (Stop Being) Sheep
02. Wolves of the North
