First Gnod experience of 2011 on Saturday night at The Horatia in London was suitably insane - they were playing tracks from their forthcoming album on Rocket Recordings which I'm now looking forward to more than ever.

They were relentless - 6 strong this time round, hammering bass VS hammering bass as John sent out some heavy space screams into the ether, Del battering drums from a standing position, beating out some HOLY hell unleashed as Paddy laid into his guitar amidst all the chaos, it wouldn't be the same without some bloodshed.

Gnod are the best band in the world as keeps being said. No contest.
