Terminal Gods is an alt-rock band from London in England comprising Cowlin, Maisey, Cooper and Campbell.
The dark and sombre rock that Terminal Gods deliver cloaks the room in a dank and oppressive atmosphere which seeps its way into the bone-marrow, infusing the body with an introspective paranoia. There have been iconic and highly influential bands delivering this effect going back over the decades, but to make a comparison would be to detract from what is undoubtedly a talented group of musicians delivering the sounds in the 2010s.
Formed a couple of years ago Terminal Gods have worked hard to secure a live presence, which has seen them successfully playing gigs across vast swathes of Europe. To cement the effort so far they are releasing a debut EP – the six track Machine Beat Messiah on the 25th November, twenty one minutes of well delivered reflective rock.
The quartet combine deep registers with a metronomic percussion which drives the music into the listeners ears, whilst more prosaic guitar work delivers the layers of textures to the sound and completing the effect is a vocal which emerges from the soundscape like an eerie apparition.
The material itself is delivered in densely packed compositions which don’t require volume to reinforce the powerful presence that is Terminal Gods.
The three track single Lessons in Fire – Single – Terminal Gods is available on iTunes*.
