Glaswegian technical death metallers Godeater have released a new video for the song “You Are No Exception” and it’s a belter of a track.
Only being formed in 2016 and releasing a debut album All Flesh is Grass to critical acclaim in September of last year, Godeater want to remind everybody out there that they are using this lockdown time wisely and constructing songs of the highest calibre to threaten the bands at the forefront of the genre.
The song starts with relentless blast beats and double bass from Tim that basically doesn’t let up, showing the stamina of the man. For those that are there for the riffs, they are rattled off aplenty by Ross and Andrew, and range from mid paced chug-fests to fast swirling riffs, so bring out all your air guitars and play along. Vocals from Josh are not quite shouting or growling but somewhere nicely in-between. There is also a cool section where he is close to clean singing showing his attributes as a vocalist. Bassist Will keeps the band together with his frenetic bass lines breaking your ribs.
The single was mastered at legendary Studio Fredman by Fredrik Nordstrom which shows how highly Godeater aim to go. I think once you have listened to the song, it will be easy to see why.
