Earning their spot on the New Blood stage by winning the Leeds Metal 2 the Masses, Godeth fuse death, groove, metalcore and hardcore to create their signature sound. A sound that is manic and meaty, encapsulated by their latest single ‘Scald’. A track that we described as:
The band upping the heaviness with a dark and methodical tempo, punctuated by bursts of intense drumming, ear-bleeding guitar squeals, and emphatic vocals. From beginning to end, it compels you to head-bang, and head-bang you will.
Releasing Scald and winning the Leeds Metal 2 the Masses seems to be the stamp on the resurgence of Godeth. It being their first release since 2021’s EP ‘Life to the Flame’, and the first with new vocalist Miles Case-Watson. Bloodstock 2023 is not the end of their journey; it is just the beginning.
Godeth will take to the New Blood stage on the Sunday of the festival. It promises to be a violent and vicious experience. We spoke to the band about what it means to play the festival, what Bloodstock means to them, and what attendees can expect from their show, and they had this to say:
Playing Bloodstock is without a doubt the peak of our musical career so far. Every unsigned metal band wants the coveted Bloodstock – New Blood stage slot ticked off of their bucket lists and to say we have done that is an incredible achievement. We know the opportunities that come with this so we will be 100% committed to putting on the wildest show possible.
We see Bloodstock Open air is an integral part of the metal community and is a safe haven for anyone attending, it’s filled with a healthy mix of love and loud music. They thrive on giving new artists a platform to showcase what they can do and ultimately keeping heavy music alive, as well as reeling in some favourites to headline? What’s not to love?
We take to the New blood stage on the Sunday of the festival and we can confidently assure anyone reading this, there will be a lot of crowd participation, wall of deaths and circle pits.
Though you may be new to seeing us but you won’t feel like it after you have left that tent and witnessed what we can offer in a live setting.
