GOD DAMN - Heavy Money EP (Gravy)

Wow, who knew? I mean a lot of people have been knowing that God Damn were pretty good and showing a lot of promise, but this is something else. Hot on the heels of the 4 track EP ‘I’m A Lazer, You’re A Radar’ comes this new mini album ‘Heavy Money’ and finally we have a band living up to the hype. The bands bandcamp page where you can download this release for free lists their tags as ‘rock blues grunge hardcore popindie stoner metal’ and to be honest this release falls into all those categories, it shouldn’t work but it does. Main single ‘Heavy Money’ is obviously a standout track, managing to sound fresh yet so familiar that you could swear you’ve heard it before; ‘Like Meat To Morrissey’ is not only a great song title but an amazing example of the kind of early 90’s mixed with modern influences sound God Damn have created, if they’d have been around in the 90’s they’d have likely signed to a major label for millions, or maybe not as everything so far has been on their terms and they’re doing great for it. Special mention goes to last song ‘Dangle Like Skeletons’ like mixing Lemonheads with Black Sabbath, fucking genius!!
