Godstopper Set to Make the East Coast Uncomfortable in April
Repent, east coast! For surely you have done something very, very bad if Toronto’s Godstopper are touring amongst ye:
Did you see that 2011 Lars von Trier movie Melancholia? Godstopper’s album What Matters (my #3 album of 2012) is kinda like that in musical form – it forces me to think and feeds my senses and fucks me up all at the same time. Chances are you will not see Kirsten Dunst’s exposed breasts at any of the nine shows on Godstopper’s upcoming tour. But that’s cool, because if a Godstopper show is anything like Godstopper on record, they’ll deaden whatever sexual impulses you might have going into it.
I don’t care if I’m the only MetalSucks writer who gives a hoot about this band. They are making important music. And if the metal world never “gets” that, then at least now you know why the sun will seem a bit dimmer on the east coast later this month.
