GODTHRYMM, featuring vocalist/guitarist Hamish Glencross (ex-My Dying Bride, Vallenfyre, Solstice), drummer Shaun Taylor-Steels (ex-My Dying Bride, Anathema), and bassist Bob Crolla, arrive with riffs as gargantuan as the pedigree behind their band members.
Vocalist and guitarist Hamish Glencross comments: “I’m equal parts excited and nervous for the release of this album. We’ve invested our hearts and souls into this with no small amount of hard work. We’re incredibly proud and thankful to those who have helped us along the way. Cheers!”
Adds bass player Bob Crolla: “I’m super proud to be a part of this project. I can’t wait for people to hear the album and then to get out and play it live.”
And drummer Shaun ‘Winter’ Taylor-Steels: “Oh! It’s heavier than a thousand anvils!”
Forged in 2017 by Glencross, GODTHRYMM sees the respected UK metal luminary return to his doom metal roots, creating the music he was known to help forge with Solstice on the legendary New Dark Age album and especially with the heralded My Dying Bride from the 2000 – 2014 time period. Further adding to the GODTHRYMM pedigree is drummer Shaun Taylor-Steels who, after some lineup refining following the band’s A Grand Reclamation debut EP, became the core of GODTHRYMM. In the months to follow, the pair recorded the colossal Reflections full-length. Upon its completion, Glencross and Taylor-Steels added bassist Bob Crolla to the fold making GODTHRYMM a true power trio of doom.
Recorded and mixed by Nathan Bailey and featuring artwork and design by Brian D’Agosta of Gostworks Art (Vallenfyre, War//Plague), Reflections is the result of Glencross taking GODTHRYMM into darker, more melancholic, and towering realms. Through Glencross’ soaring passionate vocals complimenting his powerful riffs along with Taylor-Steels’ thunderous percussion giving the rhythm section that immense and glorious tone, Reflections is a testament to the glory days of the genre while simultaneously making its statement as a new force of modern day doom metal to behold.
To mark the release GODTHRYMM play their album launch show on February 22 at The Unicorn, Camden, London with support from Consecration and Gods of Hellfire. Tickets for the album launch are available for purchase here: https://www.wegottickets.com/event/493756/
