LIVE: Closing party – Saturday
A lot of bands are trying what The Exorcist GBG are doing – making timeless, mind bending music. The Exorcist GBG is the band that seem to exist in a dimension, much like ours but that lacks time as we know it; time is stretchable backwards and forward, and being in this dimension allows you to travel yet remaining in one place. The Exorcist GBG does this. Also they reach our dimension.
The members who also can be found in Uran, Ultra Satan, and Exotique among others, formed The Exorcist GBG in 2012 and started by playing illegal techno clubs for the true underground citizens of Gothenburg, Sweden. The reputation of this dangerous psychedelic band, who plays funk the way funk should be played soon reached Stockholm where they got a cult following just by word of mouth.
Over the past four years their following has grown in numbers and the recording of “II”, their second album, was a trip into the abyss and back, with a lot of outrage from the members and the record label executives biting their nails down to the bone. But that is how The Exorcist GBG works – tension is a vital part of this bands nature, hence it’s sound. The tracks’ aggressive approach and the feeling of being possessed by something evil lurking inside of you mirrors the process of making this album. But listening to the album back to back and hearing how the songs intertwine, lets the true face of The Exorcist GBG shine brightly over you. “II”, released on Höga Nord Rekords is dimension expanding and time dissolving music.
