>> GOD ALONE <<
God Alone are a 5 piece post metal band hailing from Cork, Ireland. They combine the dense atmosphere of post metal with elements of indie, hardcore, jazz and electronic music. They self released their debut EP “INTIVIM” in late 2016 to critical acclaim and have since released their first full length album: titled “Poll na mBrón”.
They have played numerous Irish festivals including Townlands Carnival, Monolith Festival and the Siege of Limerick and were recently crowned winners of the “Mammothfest Best Band Competition” of Mammothfest in Brighton, beating 200 bands across Ireland and the UK who battled through the heats.
Their self described “sad metal with some dancey bits” heard on their latest single release “Dagda” has been described by Overblown as “a blast of visceral fury and dance floor filling interludes”. They have been featured and interviewed on numerous media platforms including Hot Press, Totally Cork, The GoldenPlec and Cork’s Evening Echo. Their latest release will see them push the boundaries of metal even further, until it cracks.
“They bring a free flowing energy to their music, each song a crescendo of progressive styling dipped in Black Metal. God Alone are one of the more interesting young bands in the country today.” – HOT PRESS.
“Best band in Cork. Nay, in Ireland! That is all.” – OVERBLOWN.

>> SHIFTING <<
Shifting is the unbearably mouth-watering combination of Paul ‘the softcat’ Clynes and the brothers Hedigan. Effortless and sensual, the music conjured by these kings among men will not only move you but shift you.
