GODSPEED YOU! BLACK EMPEROR
Canadian post-rock giants Godspeed You! Since their debut (1997), Black Emperor has attacked contemporary politics, but perhaps it’s the right timing now when the world feels just very uncertain as they’ve always portrayed it to be like. In their disturbing, orchestral works, doom’s day is always present and there are few artists that can balance anger, hope, despair and beauty as masterfully as they do. Ambient walls of sound, chaotic crescendos, multimedia innovation, cinematic chamber rock – GY!BE is undoubtedly one of the best and most influential post-rock bands of the 21st century with a very devoted fan base.
