Johannesburg’s harbingers of sludgy doom metal Mad God have unveiled the artwork for their second album Grotesque and Inexorable. The album is set for release on the 2nd November 2018 on CD and all digital platforms.

Vocalist and guitarist Tim Harbour comments on the idea behind the cover “The art for the new Mad God album reflects the darker and more brooding compositions found on Grotesque and Inexorable, in other words, “disgusting and cannot be stopped”. With this album we attempted to make our riffs darker, heavier, weirder and more progressive, as well as our themes, and we needed album art to reflect this evolution of our sound. The art portrays an ancient and evil forest that has claimed the lives of many a traveller and adventurer aiming to traverse its winding paths. An important theme for all our music has been horror stories and I wanted our album art to be able to tell a story much like our songs do. Our amazing artist Lyle Van’Dango took my vision above and made this beautiful and terrifying work that perfectly depicts what I had in my mind.”

Mad God is a 3-piece doom metal band from Johannesburg, South Africa and take influences from bands such as Electric Wizard, Ufommamut, Candlemass, Warning, Church of Misery, OM, Sleep, Sons of Otis, The Sword and Black Sabbath. Musically Mad God combine traditional, epic, sludge and stoner doom and play a mix of crushingly slow riffs and psychedelic soundscapes layered with reverb drenched vocals and lyrics touching on horror, madness, drug abuse, interdimensional beings. Mad God’s lyrics are heavily inspired by the works of H.P Lovecraft, among other sci-fi, horror and fantasy authors. Their music goes beyond the traditional metal tropes of blast beats and guttural vocals and experiments with slow and atmospheric textures that allows the bands essence to extend between worlds. Mad God’s show is more than just a live performance but an aural and physical experience that they share with our audience.
