Is there any documented proof that Godspeed were in fact influenced by Swans? I've always been curious since people like to toss that around so much.

Also, I actually like the Seer more than Children of God at the moment. It's right there with Soundtracks for the Blind for me, maybe more right now. Sorry.

Similarity doesn't equal actual influence, though. There are many ways to end up on a certain sound either by similar influences or coincidence.

I wish there were actual quotes that could be found. I mean, it would make sense if so.

i can't find any quotes, but if you look at any biography of them it'll say that they influenced a lot of musicians, godspeed among them.

Skinny fists sounds a lot like Soundtracks, specifically The Sound, Helpless Child, and Animus.

There's a great chance you will at least like them a little bit.

If you don't like godspeed more than a 3.5/5 you might as well kill yourself. That's just how life works post-1997.

I care. I love to see what bands influenced other bands. It's always interesting.

But often people get carried away with comparing artists to other artists as a way to cheapen them or feel cool for name dropping them.

Eh, doesn't bother me. Music is music and I love it no matter what people say to try and seem intellectual. I just never pegged Godspeed to be influenced by Swans, it's interesting to learn these things.
