Brand New ~ Sealed! Special Limited Edition, Pressed On Red Coloured Vinyl! Kiwi Rock Icons, Shihad Are Back In 2021 With ‘Old Gods’.
If anger is an energy, then ‘Old Gods’ ~ Shihad’s 10th studio album since forming in Wellington in 1988 ~ could singlehandedly power our capital city for a year. ‘Old Gods’ is a step into fury for frontman Jon Toogood whose lyrics encapsulate our collective anger at recent world events. The album states its intent from the moment the crushing, grinding riff of opener “Tear Down Those Names” explodes to life, and just one song later Toogood urges for the killing of the “Old Gods” in the title track. Elsewhere, Toogood takes aim at conservative talk radio, the legitimisation of racism, and the radicalisation of a generation fuelled by misinformation.
