God Root To Release New Album "Salt And Rot"

Philadelphia avant-garde sludge shamans God Root will release second offering, "Salt And Rot," this coming July 11th digitally with Horror Pain Gore Death Productions and as limited, hand screen-printed compact discs available directly through the band.

"We hope this record helps people escape," bassist/vocalist Ross Bradley explains. "That's what we wrote it for and we paid a lot of attention to how it moves from track to track and what kind of journey it takes a listener on. Thematically the record deals with the frailty of human life and of ego and the dogmas we've tried to build for ourselves. It's about facing one's mortality and letting go of what you can't control, destroying those oppressive forces trying to control and manipulate you and becoming self-reliant outside of these systems."

Recorded throughout 2017 with Neil Cote and Richard Bukowski at Groundwork Sound in Somerville, NJ, God Root spared no expense to create its own brand of primitive and tribalistic sludge, resulting in the doomed cinematic soundscapes found on "Salt and Rot."

God Root also welcomed friends and family into the studio to participate in the "Let Go" project. Bradley comments: "We put a call out to our friends and family to contribute something they wanted to let go of. We recorded their voices/read their writings. Some of these were personal stories and some were phrases or names that meant something to them. We processed them into our track 'From Hounds to Silent Skies' in a way that maintains their respective privacy. It was really harrowing and humbling to have these people we love be as vulnerable and open and honest as they were."
