FIRST EVER VINYL PRESSING OF THE 2015 PROG-METAL ALBUM FROM THE UK's GODSTICKS
"Emergence is a rare thing – an album of technically astounding prog-metal replete with hooks and melodies" Total Guitar
In the build-up to the announcement of their fifth studio album, and recent headline performances in London, Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow and hometown Cardiff, Godsticks' riff-heavy third studio album ‘Emergence’ is released on mid-price CD via Kscope.
Known for their technical ability, Godsticks meld metal, prog-rock, jazz and nu-metal into a musically and thematically cohesive album. And as their sound has gradually hardened since 2008, Charles’ vocals have preserved their distinct, relaxed style that remains a defining quality for the band. ‘Emergence’ features a strong selection of powerful live-favourites which were played during their extensive 2017 European tour as support for The Pineapple Thief and has been placed in favourable comparison by PROG magazine to Queensrÿche’s ‘Operation: Mindcrime’, Dream Theater’s ‘Scenes From a Memory’, Tool’s ‘Lateralus’ and Opeth’s ‘Blackwater Park’.
This first LP edition of ‘Emergence’ is pressed to 180g heavyweight vinyl, presented in a single sleeve complete with a printed inner bag featuring song lyrics.

"A truly captivating album far ahead of some of the more predictable prog-metal releases" PROG
"Dark and muscular prog heaviness from one of the UK's most idiosyncratic rock bands" Metal Hammer
"A mighty tour de force of tip-top riffery" Guitarist
