The God Eaters hail from the icy college town of Marquette, MI. A rock n roll trio, they churn out a sound that finds its balance somewhere between the controlled chaos of abrasive noise, heavy riffs, and pummeling rhythms and that of slower, harmonic and dreamy soundscapes. The band consists of drummer Nick Erickson, guitarist/vocalist Dylan Trost and bassist Devyn Trost.
The God Eaters take influence from bands you know on Touch and Go, Discord as well as Fela Kuti, Captain Beefheart, John Coltrane, bands of the local Marquette area and their friends’ bands around the Midwest and beyond. Lake Superior and the surrounding forests also play a role in song composition and lyrical content is vulnerable, often times cynical, mindful, and rife with inside jokes among the band. When they’re available, saxophonists Patrick Booth and Mike Bjella accompany the band and with their addition comes an even more experimental sound.
