Description

Godsticks' third studio album sees its first release on Kscope after being self-released in 2015. Emergence, the Cardiff band's hardened, genre-redefining offering is a breakthrough for the band in 2016. Founding member and frontman Darran Charles has been invited to work on The Pineapple Thief's 2016 album 'Your Wilderness' with Bruce Soord and Gavin Harrison, as well as on Soord's solo album last year. Charles has steered Godsticks in to their most progressive work to date. A work of such stature that it is compared to Queensrÿche's 'Operation: Mindcrime', Dream Theatre's 'Scenes From a Memory', Tool's 'Lateralus' and Opeth's 'Blackwater Park' by Prog Magazine. This comes as no surprise from the band who were nominated for the best debut in 2011 by Progawards for their album 'Spiral Vendetta'. Known for their technical ability, Godsticks meld metal, prog-rock, jazz and nu metal into a musically and thematically cohesive album. And as their sound has gradually hardened since 2008, Charles' vocals have preserved their distinct, relaxed style that remains a defining quality for the band. 'Emergence' will be released as a mid-price CD Digipack with a 12-page insert. "Dark and muscular prog heaviness from one of the UK's most idiosyncratic rock bands" - Metal Hammer (UK) "Emergence is a rare thing -- an album of technically astounding prog-metal replete with hooks and melodies" - Total Guitar Magazine (UK) "Godsticks are as musically pure as they are talented... [and] have the potential to make a monumental breakthrough." - Prog Mag (UK)
