Terminal Gods, ‘Disciples of Armageddon’, are joining with new label, Palm Zone Records, for its debut release, ‘Palm Zone – Session 1’. The band, recently described as “dirty, seedy, after-dark music that has you gagging for more”, are joining company with Bonfire Nights and on the label’s launch EP, a Velvet Underground tribute featuring Terminal God’s take of ‘White Light / White Heat’, one of four tracks on the EP.
Paul Carlin, Exec Producer for Palm Zone, says: “This has been something we’ve wanted to do for a number of years and when the opportunity came along to have Terminal Gods join the show, we didn’t hesitate. The three bands on the EP are very different and all add something special. Terminal Gods add dark drums, dank leather and raw energy”.
The Gods based their blueprint of ‘White Light / White Heat’ on Bowie’s Glass Spider arrangement. They’ve suppressed a lot of its slickness and revived its wild side via a hooliganistic chorus and viscous solo.
Since forming in 2011 the band have released an EP and two 7” singles. In their short time together they’ve toured their machine beat, chorus heavy anthems through mainland Europe four times including Norway, Germany, Italy, France and Spain.
On top of this they run live music and club nights in and around North London under Heavy Leather Promotions (the label they run out of their living room) and A New Dusk, which started out as a blog and has since escalated into London’s leading minimal and cold wave club night. They’ve even featured in a comic book by illustrating duo Shart Attack, available in comic shops across the country.
