Great News! Cape Town’s OHGOD are very happy to announce dates for their German tour that will see them playing Dunk! Festival and Pelagic Fest. They will also be supporting progressive metalcore giants Jinjer on the German leg of their Cloud Factories Tour 2018 along with The Dali Thundering Concept.
An elegant instrumental blend of the soft spacey echoes of post rock, the intricacies of progressive rock/metal and a diverse amalgamation of other musical elements. This blend forms the unique sound that is OHGOD.
They are a four piece band currently based out of Cape Town – a band whose pure passion can be observed through their energetic and mesmerizing live performances, putting a face to the music. They are taking the listener on a psychedelic journey through realms and soundscapes created by captivating rhythms and skillfully created blissful tones.
OHGOD has shared the stage with multiple international artists like Protest The Hero, Karnivool, Katatonia, Monuments, 36 Crazyfists, Memphis May Fire and Intervals. They released their debut full length album The Great Silence on 9 December last year and it was met with widespread critical acclaim.
Produced independently by the band, with David Houston (Lead Guitar) spearheading the recording and production of the album, which took place at Sound And Motion Studios and Twelve Eleven Studios in Cape Town. It was mixed and mastered by South African producer now based in Canada Dylan Ellis, who was responsible for Hokum’s masterpiece The Money Eaters. “Dylan Ellis was super nice to work with, he was super calm and professional and made it easy to translate what we wanted in the sound into the mix” says Danny Harris (who plays drums for OHGOD).
