If normal pop music is like watching a sunny day through a passenger window, We Made God's music would be like riding a monster truck through a blizzard. Violent and adrenaline filled, broken up by the occasional calm eye of the storm. Emerging from the Icelandic Battle of the Bands, with the band claiming 3rd place and frontman Magnús's vocals taking the prize for best vocals in 2006
The British rock magazine Kerrang has been advocating We Made God since their first gig at the Iceland Airwaves festival in 2006. Since then they've had a permanent slot on the Kerrang nights at the Airwaves festival with a constant review of 4 Ks for their atmospheric live shows. Kerrang has not only been content with promoting their live shows as they also selected We Made God as one of their Must Hear acts of 2008.
Their debut As We Sleep has been touted as “Referencing the otherworldly ambient atmospherics of Sigur Rós and Deftones' driving, muscular riffs” by Q Magazine who gave them a 4/5 for their “audacious debut”. Kerrang magazine was equally thrilled by their debut album, giving them 4 Ks and dubbing it “simultaneously soporific and terrifying”.
Since their birth they've played hundreds of gigs all around Iceland, playing their aberrant blend of slow melodic movements segued with with fierce metal riffs. As well as every concert venue in Iceland having the pleasure of their performance, We Made God made their presence known in Great Britain in 2008 with an intense two week tour from Scotland to London, playing 11 gigs in under two weeks.
We Made God are one of those cases where the community played a huge role in the development of their fame. Without the loyal support of the rock and metal community they might not have gotten so far. Together with their fans they've carved out a niche for themselves, mixing together the tones of the northern lights with the bludgeoning riffs of a polar ice storm.
