Godeater Deliver Tasty Riffs Fueled By Climate Change


Fun fact for you: did you know that if 30% of every burger was replaced with mushrooms it would be like taking 2.3 million cars off the road? While I’m not necessarily ready to give up meat entirely and jump on the vegan bandwagon just yet, I do believe that changes are needed in the way our society consumes meat and animals are treated.

Godeater, a new technical death metal band hailing from Scotland, are spreading messages about social causes such as veganism and fighting for climate change while bludgeoning listeners with high-caliber riffs. While their message might not resonate with everyone, it’s sure to connect with at least some folks. Besides, what’s more metal than singing about the slow and painful end of the world brought upon by climate change or the unfair treatment of animals?

The band has just released a music video for the track “Silent Spring” which comes off their upcoming debut LP titled All Flesh is Grass. The video flashes images of the destruction we’ve brought upon the world such as smokestacks, plastic in the oceans, car emissions, melting icebergs, and the list goes on.
