Children Of God- Sun Gives Way To False Truths 10” ~SCREENED B-SIDE!
Children Of God- Sun Gives Way To False Truths 10”. "Sun Gives Way To False Truths" starts out somewhat different to what you'd expect from this band. Instead of jumping straight into blasting beats and screaming vocals full of despair, the track begins very quietly and slowly. I've only experienced this side of the band once before on the awesome split with Seven Sisters of Sleep (Bled Dry). For the first minute or so you are only greeted by an ominous tone that slowly works its way into the higher decibel range, which eventually is replaced by a painfully slow down-tuned riff. All the while you can just feel the tension rising, rising towards something outstanding. There is a slight pause and then it hits you; a heavy drumbeat that seems to rip the very fabric holding the song together wide open. From here on in it's all go. Fuckin’ crushing. This Children Of God release sounds more refined and mature. Instead of focusing on the blistering speed seen in their previous work, the band has taken the time to develop a really solid heavy atmosphere, and it's just great. At just under 10 minutes, "The Sun Gives Way to False Truths" is the longest track by Children Of God, one that takes you on a trip showing the true musical skills of this band. Nice packaging on this one too. The cover folds open to display the insert inside and underneath. And the B-side includes a lovely looking screen printed design. German import.
