Put together by lead singer Jason Miller in 1994, Godhead has earned the right to eat at the table of rock royalty. After all, the band has shared stages with household names like Marylin Manson, Slipknot and Linkin Park. It’s not just the time they’ve put in, it’s the unique sound they’ve put out; a hard-hitting fusion of metal, goth and electronica. Listening to their fourth studio album ‘The Shadow Realigned’, wispy images of the Depeche Mode of the 90s begin to emerge. But they have somehow forged this industrial sound into something Green Day and Nickleback fans will enjoy.

Nod From Marylin Manson
Godhead began getting the attention their talent merited when Marylin Manson caught wind of them, not long after picking up their first record deal. From there they went on to release ‘2000 Years of Human Error’ on Marylin’s newly founded Posthuman Records. Having woken up and smelt the Godhead-flavored coffee, MTV and radio stations began tossing songs like ‘Eleanor Rigby’ and ‘The Reckoning’ at the masses. By this time the group had swapped gigs in nondescript bars for tours headlined by the likes of Slipknot and Linkin Park, putting them in front of millions of eyes. Their prominence earned them spots on motion picture soundtracks including 2002’s ‘Queen of The Damned’ which starred the late Aaliyah. Things continued to pick up steam and in 2003 they released ‘Evolver’ which spawned the MTV2 hit ‘The Hate in Me’. Three years and countless hours on the road later they dropped the landmark ‘The Shadow Line’. This was more or less Godhead’s baby as they produced it in their own studio mostly by themselves, giving them leeway to explore the limits of their creativity. This album secured them a place in the rock radio Top 40 and spurred them back into the studio to cut their third album ‘At the Edge of the World’.
14 Producers 1 Album
Six years after the ‘The Shadow Lines’ release, Godhead decided to put their baby in the hands of producers other than themselves and see what would come of it. The result was The Shadow Realigned. In the liner notes you will find production credits to 14 different producers including Shok, who has worked with Lady Gaga. Skimming through the playlist of this April 2014 release, you will feel as though you’ve journeyed back two decades. Particularly when you get to ‘Push’ whose guitarwork is just a chord or two shy of those on The Fine Young Cannibals’ 1988 hit ‘She Drives Me Crazy’. But it’s not all about 90s nostalgia; ‘Your End of Days’ is decidedly pop/alt. It features a gently meowing Jason backed by blazing guitars. The tune is cast in a mournful soundscape created by carefully chosen electronic samples. But you far from feeling blue, you’ll be buoyed by the positive, upbeat message Miller projects throughout the album.
