Godspeed You! Black Emperor

Often praised as one of the greatest Post-Rock bands, Godspeed You! Black Emperor formed in Montreal, 1994. The band began with three members, but usually has nine, and has contained as many as 15.

Often praised as one of the greatest Post-Rock bands, Godspeed You! Black Emperor formed in Montreal, 1994. The band began with three members, but usually has nine, and has contained as many as 15. The group's unique and volatile sound is a mix of classical, avant-garde, and progressive, with most of their songs broken up into symphonic movements. Godspeed's music is all instrumental, save eerie spoken samples sometimes incorporated to enhance the dark mood, most noticeably on the album"f#a#∞". The band is opposed to self-publicizing, with a lot of the members being anarchists, and most of their fan base is made by word-of-mouth. Godspeed You! Black Emperor went on an indefinite hiatus in 2003, but reformed in 2010. Several side projects have bloomed into full time works for the members of Godspeed, such as A SilverMt. Zion, Fly Pan Am and 1 SpeedBike. « hide
