Time for the next edition of Metal Anarchy’s “new music showcase,” the feature where I introduce you to bands that readers of this site may find interesting. This time I have an exclusive Q&A with River Stole Gods.
METAL ANARCHY: Tell me a little about your band:
RIVER STOLE GODS: We are River Stole Gods, a prog metalcore trio from Germany. We are around since 2019 and have had the pleasure to tour with Ingested in East Europe right before the Corona pandemic hit us hard. Now we are back with new material for you!
METAL ANARCHY: Who are your main influences?
RIVER STOLE GODS: Our main influences may be Monuments, Architects, and TesseracT, who helped us to develop our own sound and style – a good mixture of proggy and bouncy riffs and crushing breakdowns.
METAL ANARCHY: What is your latest release and why should readers of this site check it out?
RIVER STOLE GODS: Our latest release is “Holding On” – the first chapter of our single trilogy called “New Eyes.” For us, it marks a turning point in our style and sets the start of a new sound concept stretching over two more songs. Besides “Holding On” we are gonna release our second single “Surviving Death” November 25th. We are happy, if you join us in our journey!.
METAL ANARCHY: What can people expect when they go to your live shows?
RIVER STOLE GODS: A honest and wild performance, making you do mosh and circle pits one after another.
METAL ANARCHY: Where do you see your band heading in 5 years?
RIVER STOLE GODS: Hopefully touring the whole globe as headliner with awesome bands coming along and meeting people who enjoy music as much, as we do. A pretty bold vision, but we are working hard to make this vision become reality.
