The group's unique and volatile soundis 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, mostnoticeably on the album"f#a#∞". The band is opposed to self-publicizing, with a lot of the members being anarchists, andmost of their fan base is made by word-of-mouth. Godspeed You! Black Emperor went on an indefinite hiatus in 2003, butreformed in 2010. Several side projects have bloomed into full time works for the members of Godspeed, such as ASilverMt. Zion, Fly Pan Am and 1 SpeedBike. « hide
