Biography

Karlstad, Sweden

Godgory were formed in 1992 by vocalist Matte Andersson and drummer Erik Andersson (no relation, surprisingly) in Karlstad, Sweden. They have utilized a variety of session musicians over the years, including every member of the band World of Silence at one point or another. Godgory played a doom-inflected variant of Gothenburg melodeath characterized by slow percussive riffs, minimalistic but powerful drumming, deep subdued death growls, and highly melodic keyboards influenced by 70s rock.

Godgory ended in 2004, three years after the release of their last album. Since then, Matte and Erik have intermittently recorded with Loss and Grave Flowers.

    How much unique Godgory is! They're different from any melodeath band, those just can repeat other works and sing fuckin' stupid lyrics.

    Such a shame they split up. Anyone know what became of them? I have just spent the last hour looking for anything about them on the internet or anything that Erik and Matte of done. Looks like nothing recent anyway. They seemed to have disappeared.
