Swedish D-Beat / Grind / Hardcore Bastardisation are playing Dublin for the first time as part of their Irish Tour with Ilenkus .

Signed to Party Smasher Inc. (Ben Weinman, Dillinger Escape Plan’s independent label) God Mother have gained a reputation for their chaotic, frenzied live shows and for blending the intensity of d-beat, crust and grind with a metal and hardcore focus.

Across 14 tracks, God Mother’s 2017 Party Smasher Inc. debut, “Vilseledd,” packs hardcore, grind, sludge, and noise into lethal projectiles and was hailed by Metal Injection as an album that “will fuck you up”.

A four-piece powerhouse, from the depths of the Swedish hardcore underground, ‘God Mother’ has been a rising force since its inception in 2012, having toured extensively with acts such as Cult Leader, The Number 12 Looks Like You and The Dillinger Escape Plan.

Hailing from Galway, Ireland, Ilenkus straddle a gritty line between metal and hardcore. The band have shared stages with bands like Norma Jean, Mutoid Man and Employed To Serve. 2016’s ‘Hunger’ is Ilenkus’s third release and took their music in a darker and more violent direction. The EP contains four short, chaotic and cathartic bursts of grinding post metal. Released on 7” vinyl by a group of small European DIY labels, ‘Hunger’ is 14 minutes of controlled noise and raw energy and touted by Metal Sucks as “a nut grabbing explosion of raw violence”

“Bellowing and noisy, Dublin’s Destriers remind me every so
often of the best whale-heavy hardcore bands that ran alongside the Boston/Hydra Head scene but made their homes in Europe, like Breach.” – Invisible Oranges
Destriers released their debut EP “Cynosure” on limited edition Blue 7″ through Distroy Records last year & since then they have shared the stage with a diverse range of acts like Oathbreaker, Slidhr, Unyielding Love & Malthusian.
Their latest video is featured on CVLT Nation here.
