"After their stellar and acclaimed performance at WOA 2022 which generated a lot of resonance within the scene, Leipzig-based heavy psych and instrumental trance rock band GODZILLA IN THE KITCHEN reveal full details of their highly anticipated new album EXODUS.
Following their impressive self-titled debut, the band returns with a vibrant mixture of melodical recognizability and rhythmic complexity, Psych Rock in a very genuine way. Highly melodic and definitely with a lot of energy, the new album will set new standards for the underground movement!"
The band says: „We are incredibly honored by the chance to do this. Some of these songs have been stuck in our heads for 7 years and were thrilled to finally unleash them on the world! Exodus tells the Story of a somewhat hopefully post apocalyptic future, where humans have to face a monster that they created themselves.“

„Overall, EXODUS is a deeper and forward thinking album compared to Godzilla In The Kitchen's earlier works and shows a band taking more creative and meaningful risks with their music. If you're looking for a more daring Desert/ Stoner Rock sound with menacing purpose to it all then this is the album for you. Excellent and Highly Recommended.“
„"Heavy Rock" is written on the label of the Leipzig trio in curved letters and yet Godzilla In The Kitchen is so much more. With riffy elemental force and bone-dry drumming, one heaves here on "Exodus" already in shores of headbanging ecstasy, but there is so much oblivious rapture at the start, that especially in the stoically casual instrumental passages, which are especially in long tracks like 'The Future Of Mankind', 'The King Of Monsters' (just) and 'Everything That Has Been Given' space is given, a certain psychoactive effect develops.“
„Their use of Godzilla — not named in the songs, but in the band’s moniker, and usually considered the “king of monsters” — as a metaphor for climate change is inventive, but even that feels secondary to the instrumental exploration itself here. They may be mourning for what’s been lost, but they do so with a vigor that, almost inadvertently, can’t help but feel hopeful.“
„There is no lack of progressive developments and certain flirtations with post-rock standards in an album to be tasted from the calm with dim light and a good glass of wine. Although this statement may induce a wrong content, yua that their crunchy and monumental riffs are also capable of creating a wall of sound that will crush you.“
"This album is masterfully done. Its a complex and intriguing Album. Every member of the band performs at their absolute best. The album is ABSOLUTELY ON POINT. Overall anyone who has a good understanding of music, or plays music, will definitely appreciate the complexity, ever changing odd time signatures, ambient sound and overall musical prowess on this album."
„With "Exodus" we get a concise production where the compositions explore the development from gentler progressive rock territories towards a more dramatic progressive hard rock and progressive metal conclusion either by way of gradual development or by more of an ebb and flow approach.“
