The death metal supergroup
Since their formation in Tampa (USA), the band has unleashed powerful Death/Thrash, which is influenced by voodooism, rituals and anti-Christian forces as well as the spirits of nature.
The band was founded in 2001 by Alex von Poschinger, Tony Norman (ex-MONSTROSITY, TERRORIZER) and Seth Van De Loo (SEVERE TORTURE). Five years later guitarist Hiro (DIES IRAE, SCEPTIC, DECAPITATED) and Nergal (BEHEMOTH) joined the band as singer. One year later bass guru Jean Baudin (NUCLEAR RABBITS, ELEMENT OF SURPRISE) and Mike Browning (MORBID ANGEL, NOCTURNUS) followed as additional vocalist and guitar legend David Shankle (ex-MANOWAR) joined. With this line-up the band released the EP “Shrunken Head” in 2008.
Due to the full BEHEMOTH schedule Nergal had to leave the band and was replaced by none other than George “Corpsegrinder” Fisher (CANNIBAL CORPSE). Together with him the band released their debut album “Anticipation For Blood Leveled In Darkness” in 2014, which was produced by KING DIAMOND’s Andy La Rocque.
In 2016 guitar virtuoso and all-rounder Victor Smolski (ALMANAC, ex-RAGE) joined the band. With him VOODOO GODS recorded their second studio album, which will be released by Reaper Entertainment Europe in spring 2020. The new album once again will be produced by Andy La Rocque.
VOODOO GODS are a band and not a side project.
