We’ve had enough of bril­liant new hard­core bands. Just kid­ding…

Metal Hammer (UK) - - New Noise Round-up - WORDS: JAMES WEAVER

They may NOT even be a year old yet, but Mersey­side’s God Com­plex are wast­ing no time in ce­ment­ing their place in heavy mu­sic. Their dis­so­nant, no-bull­shit brand of hard­core holds its own against the weight of pack lead­ers Code Orange, and as vo­cal­ist Harry Rule ex­plains, theirs is a move­ment gain­ing se­ri­ous trac­tion:

“There has al­ways been hard­core and we don’t ex­actly fit straight into that, but there’s this new, vi­brant scene that is emerg­ing. Since Code Orange and Knocked Loose started mak­ing such ma­jor waves in Amer­ica, we’ve made a new scene.”

It seems there is an ul­ti­mately un­sur­pris­ing cor­re­la­tion be­tween the mo­men­tum of this new scene and the de­clin­ing state of West­ern so­ci­ety. Cre­ated Sick, God Com­plex’s vis­ceral first stu­dio out­ing, dives head-first into the de­prav­ity of the mod­ern world, and for Harry and his band­mates, they are only get­ting started.

“Rea­gan-era Amer­ica pro­duced some re­ally amaz­ing mu­sic and we’re kind of in the same po­lit­i­cal cli­mate to­day – not just the UK, but also in Amer­ica and the West­ern world,” he says. “What hap­pens in Amer­ica echoes over here, it’s just as im­por­tant, and what’s go­ing on in Amer­ica is fuck­ing in­sane. We’re not too bad off for in­spi­ra­tion at the minute!”


thanks to trump and his min­ions, there’s no end of in­spi­ra­tion for God com­plex
