Look at the CD design for We Made God’s second album, with its bleak monochromatic photography and rigid lettering. They’re basically saying: “We’re not fucking around here. This is music for serious depressives. We’ve even sampled the breakdown rant from ‘Network’!” Also their post-kreppa, post-hardcore sound seems to have imbibed some Weightgain 2000 in the production stakes, with the guitars less compressed and more powerful, while the kick drum feels like getting punched in the face with a tank. At its best, IGC provides a decent counterpoint to the major chord brigade, all the while being merely content to reside in its own desolate little world.
