Masterminded by Michael Bjella, GOG toiled in the underground noise community for a decade, releasing records that have been widely respected and regarded as essential in experimental/noise/soundscape circles.

On the band, Michael Bjella states:

“I started GOG to explore the darker sides of thought and life. I want to create things without restriction and form that can transport people and possibly make them confront their own fears. Things that are truly dark but have contrast. To borrow a line from one of my favorite artists, in case there might be harmony, then it is the harmony of accident, of chaos. I’m not trying to make harmony.”

“At its darkest, Gog is an imposing glorification of nothing. At its brightest, Gog is our saviour. A swirling vortex of white and black, virtue and nihil, that finds equilibrium in entrancing drone” – LURKERS PATH

LESBIAN Streaming Full Album

LESBIAN‘s third full length offering and Translation Loss debut Forestelevison is a single song, 44+ minute all-encompassing force of nature! Never has an album sifted through the deepest trenches of prog-influenced epic-doom and blackened metal to produce such an awe-inspiring aural assault to the senses. Recorded at Avast! Studios with long time producing collaborator Randall Dunn (Wolves in the Throne Room, Earth, Boris) and featuring gorgeous artwork by Arik Roper, Forestelevison will see a June 25 release on CD (Digipack), Digital and 2xLP. The 2xLP version will come housed in deluxe gatefold packaging and include an exclusive Vinyl-only extended outro-bonus track! The album is available for pre-order HERE.

Over the past weeks, LESBIAN teamed up with different outlets to premiere segments of their new opus Forestelevsion. The album is presented as a whole for the first time online courtesy of CVLT Nation HERE.

Consisting of guitarists Arran McInnis and Daniel La Rochelle, bassist/vocalist Dorando Hodous and drummer Benjamin Thomas-Kennedy, LESBIAN has grown accustomed to composing lengthy eclectic journeys that take the listener through myriad genres ranging anywhere from doom to prog to psyche to 70s rock to black metal to grunge and beyond. Forestelevison continues LESBIAN’S music genre-defying journey from their prior full-length on Holy Mountain Records called Power Hor, a split 10″ with Ocean on Roadburn Records, a self-released two song tour EP, and a second full-length on Important Records called Stratospheria Cubensis.
