Have you ever thought about how really heavy psychedelic, trance inducing rock music should sound like? These guys here did. Godzilla In The Kitchen is a three-piece instrumental rock band from Leipzg, Germany. All band members were early infected by the work of great alternative musicians such as Tool, Faith No More, Helmet or Kyuss to name a few.
In 2011 they started their first rehearsals, trying to combine all the different musical aspects tabled by every single one of them to create a unique mixture of melodical recognizability and rhythmic complexity. After three years of on-stage experience and practice these three guys decided to finally get their work pressed on a more tangible and of course a more sellable format.
So they started recording sessions in April 2014 and – after more than one year of recording, mixing and mastering a total of 10 songs with around 60 mins playing time – they were very proud to release their self-titled debut album in May 2015. After a long writing session from 2016 to 2018 they went their own separate ways for almost 2 years. Finally and luckily they took decision to reunite in 2021 to get on stage again.
On the 2nd of April 2021 they released their first music video for Dr. Moth, a song from their first album. The album was remastered and reissued on this date on a double vinyl. In March 2021 they started the recordings of their second album. On October 28, 2022, their second album EXODUS was released via Argonauta Records. They released two singles: WILL BE TAKEN AWAY & EVERYTHING THAT HAS BEEN GIVEN. The album was presented to a larger audience as part of an extensive tour. The band performed among others at the Wacken Open Air. They released their first Live Album on February 10th 2023. In 2023 there will be more dates to see the guys live.
Somewhere between classical harmonics and a chainsaw you find the sound of his guitar, shredding very earthy riffs, sometimes heavy, sometimes out-of-space light. The spinning wheel behind GITK.
The living drum-machine, brings in all the complex framework to keep the strings together. You can imagine any random rhythm - he plays it, even backwards if you like. He is the backbone of GITK.
"The bass player is the real Godzilla here." He makes all that complex stuff sound nice and goovy. Sorry girls, he’s married. To his Bass and of course to GITK, he is the last part of the puzzle.
