Godstopper: Lie Down / Children Are Our Future CD
Godstopper is the project of songwriter Mike Simpson, who has members back him live and occasionally in the studio as well. Their heavy-handed approach brings to mind everything from The Melvins to Cave-In, Mare, on up to Torche. "Lie Down" was their 2015 full length that was only available as a digital release up until now. It shows the band precariously striding the line between their heaviest, sludge-ridden nastiest and showing off the catchy hooks and melodic singing that has been hiding just beneath the surface. Their 2014 EP "The Children Are the Future" is added as bonus tracks, where the dirt and grime is a little more obvious. All in all, there is over an hour's worth of music available on this disc, properly released by Hex Records to show a greater audience why this band deserves to be heard at an incredibly loud volume. Digisleeve.
