With a total running time of just over 43 minutes, this CD will surely give you the finest in ONEGODLESS‘s self proclaimed genre HEAVYSTONERLUESGROOVEROCKSLUDGEMETAL. ONEGODLESS is known for their joking image, not taking things too seriously, their music is most definitely serious.
Zielhorst says: “A lot of the things we say are meant in a humorous way, more or less. It’s a reaction to the (music) world as it is right now. Of course we did not invent a new genre called HEAVYSTONERBLUESGROOVEROCKSLUDGEMETAL, but it was either that or call it anti-Djent (laughs). The music and the lyrics are very serious, though, there’s not a joke in that“.
About the album title MOURNER and its artwork Zielhorst says: “It fits. It’s a link to the previous band name, a way to include our roots, so to say. It also underlines the artwork: the Yogi man (inside artwork) mourns about the world, closed off in his own being.”
Robin Zielhorst – Bass (ex-Cynic, ex-Blue Man Group, Exivious, Our Oceans)
Pieter Verpaalen – Vocals (ex-Textures)
Yordi Lopez – Guitars (Red Eyes, 3D Monster)
Yuma van Eekelen – Drums (Exivious, ex-Pestilence)
ONEGODLESS created their own musical genre: HEAVYSTONERBLUESGROOVEROCKSLUDGEMETAL. ONEGODLESS‘ heavily riff oriented music trades speed and technical prowess for groove and feel, boldly going where many bands have gone before. It is a grooving metal machine that does not stop until you’re beating your head to the sound of the riffs. Metal to make you move and groove, yet staying hard and heavy.
Band mastermind Robin Zielhorst (session bass player, ex-Cynic, ex-Blue Man Group, Exivious, Our Oceans and solo artist), founded the band in 2013, and after some initial lineup changes found like minded forces in Pieter Verpaalen (ex-Textures), Yordi Lopez (Red Eyes, 3D Monster) and Yuma van Eekelen (Exivious, ex-Pestilence). After the release of their 2014 EP “The Beaten Path“, ONEGODLESS hit the studio in 2016 to record their debut album “Mourner“. Mixed by Tymon Kruidenier, this album will rock your socks off, combining the genre’s typical riffs and feel with a modern yet natural sound.
Be advised: this music is best listened to with your volume at level 11. Please use (enclosed) earplugs to protect your ears if necessary. ONEGODLESS can not be held responsible for any hearing loss.
