Two bands from two continents, two very dierent worlds and histories, but in many ways they have occupied parallel universes. Both have forged their own paths forward for over fteen years. Both have released four albums. Both seek transcendence and deep places in their explorations, uncompromising in their vision, both reveling in their beautiful noise.
On BIGOD, Minsk (USA) and Zatokrev (CH/EU) deliver a joint eort, a deliberative and collaborative intention to reect their innermost expressions, another search for deeper meaning in the here and now through beautiful psychedelic melancholy paired with the heaviest walls of sound and creative destructiveness. Their shared passion and aesthetics gave rise to the idea for the split album BIGOD. The work creates a new spirit, one who unites two dark souls and joins two paths into one. Here, both bands contribute two epic songs, both receiving vocal support from the other. To complete the work, Parisian artist, Max Loriot, has created an extraordinary visual realization of BIGOD’s theme, a compelling and interpretive take on the allegorical story of Elijah’s ery chariot. Two horses with their own will, a burning chariot with no horseman, the spirit re of creation.
