A band that’s as equally damaged as it rocks out hard. They’ve lost members left, right and centre through out their career as a band. They’ve dealt with issues ranging from families to mental health. They’ve all had fuck ups and let downs, which all shows through in highly charged, emotional music.
A mixture of hardcore, punk rock and metal all show through in the cathartic, powerful music that GGDSN have created. An odd mixture at times, with other genres showing through, such as a highly charged indie, somewhat poppish element showing through in the song “All Saints and Souls”.
The damaged element to the band gives them the edge that shows through in their music, the song “Evenstar” perfectly illustrating this angle of the band’s psyche. Not one member, nor one event, but all members, and all events in their history. Various songs though show each member’s lives and tribulations. A general kudos flows throughout the band. Simple, but still a kudos to live by. “A show at a time. A song at a time.” The whole thing is a liberating experience for the band, fun and yet serious. Their chance to vent and explain to the world how they feel. Passionate and exanimate at times. The live shows can be somewhat hectic - full of wild guitar spins, jumps and head banging. Then again, they can be exanimate. A moody band to say the least. Not to say that they don’t love what they do.
