We Made God Biography
"A big noise in their native Iceland, We Made God deserve a wider audience for their self financed, self-released debut. Referencing the otherworldly ambient atmospherics of Sigur RÃ³s and Deftones' driving, muscular riffs, the quartet's epic widescreen soundscapes and frontman Maggi's keening vocals are by turns beautiful and harrowing" An audacious debut." - Q Recommends 4/5
Following the release of We Made Gods critically acclaimed album "As We Sleep" in October 2008, the band will be touring the UK in April 2009
Iceland has a remarkable track record (considering it's population size) for producing bands of great artistic merit - whether it's the oddness of Bjork, the experimentation of Sigur Ros or the rock of Minus. We Made God are the latest Icelandic band to step up to the mark and their debut album delivers soaring, epic, driving rock of the highest calibre. A unique sound from a unique band.
The fourpiece are early 20 something's Maggi (vocals, guitars), Arnor (guitars), Stuni (bass) and Biggi (drums). From the gentle introspection to brutal noise of album opener Gizmo to the psychedelic riffing of the Deftones-esque "Bathwater" and the gentle floating guitars of "The Color", "As We Sleep" shows a band at the height of their powers. At turns epic, at turns gentle, the band merge intelligently crafted rock songs with the unique and powerful vocal take of Maggi. The 6 track album was produced by We Made God.
An established live draw in their home country, We Made God will be touring the UK in April 2009.
