Having established themselves as one of the UK’s premiere hard rock outfits and performed support slots for the likes of Foo Fighters, Wolverhampton’s God Damn return with their sophomore album, Everything Ever, a roaring and visceral record that suggests the band has a broadening vision and growing ambitions. Lead singles “Sing This”, “Fake Prisons”, and “Ghost” are as loud and heavy as anything the band has previously released and reaffirm the blueprint for God Damn’s work. Album opener “Sing This” is a call to arms, filled with visceral rage, whilst “Fake Prisons” has a chorus and riff courtesy of Thom Edward that has seen the likes of Royal Blood rise and rise.
Midlands duo deliver meat, but scrimp on substance Pity the bassist. Superfluous since The White Stripes and further condemned as an anachronism by Royal Blood, our four-stringed friend is the first victim of 21st-century touring budget cuts. Wolverhampton’s God Damn – singer-guitarist Thom Edward and drummer Ash Weaver – have been bassless since a life-threatening accident robbed them of their third member, producing two albums of gnarly glam grunge, situated at the garglier end of the current Britrock mob.
