With the ilk of Royal Blood breaking as many records as they are guitars, when it comes to the position of the chart-bothering rock monsters, that vacancy is closed. God Damn didn’t get the memo, and thank God for that. From start to finish, ‘Vultures’ is a relentless storm of roaring rock royalty. Lead single ‘Where the Wind Blows’ growls and snarls with enough power to run the national grid.
God Damn is a rock band with only two people. But don’t worry, they don’t really sound like yout typical two-piece. For one thing, this British duo is reportedly pretty loud. Singer/guitarist Thom Edward even said “we’re probably the loudest band in Britain right now” (did he walk into every club with a VU meter just to make certain?).
God Damn’s story is a long and complicated one. Heralded in their hometown, it’s nigh on impossible to find a band that inspire such ardent devotion, or that work so hard to attain it. At long last, that toil has paid off. With the release of their debut album, the Black Country duo are blasting out of the Midlands, and becoming one of our country’s most ferocious national treasures.
