The Gods Themselves: The Gods Themselves

The Gods Themselves
(self-released)

The self-titled, debut album from Seattle’s The Gods Themselves has such a wicked charm, that it melts over into a purposely tattered, yet seductive sophistication within the confines of punk, a hastier side of an edgier pop rock sensibility along with a darker blues appeal. The Gods Themselves possess a very vibrant, unique sound that is easily unlike anything else. Their reworking of R&B singer Ginuwine’s raunchy ’90s club hit, “Pony,” ignites with magnetically fuzzed-out guitars, certifiably sexed-up bass riffs and unrelenting drums and with that, their distinctively delicious flavoring cannot be denied or forgotten. “Gaslighter” has such a hypnotic appeal that the crawling lines of guitars, the upbeat pounce of rhythms along with charismatic vocals reaches towards a sort of ’70s rock psychedelic affair. “What Should Have Been Said…But Was Never Said” also feels like an ode to stadium rock’s yesteryear where songs and solos reached far beyond a corporate time constraint and into the upper echelon of the heavens creating an undulating, spellbinding reality all within the embrace of just one track at the hands of capable musicianship. Astra Elane, Collin O’Meara and Damion Heintschel are the trio that make up the powerhouse that is The Gods Themselves and within the familiarity of genres, they have created something unique, captivating and new.
