Formed in 2006, mancunians GNOD started their last european tour to date by spending a couple of days in the Studio Chaudelande, a small house made of bricks and passion, somewhere in the Normandy countryside (France). They recorded new songs that are now released as a two volumes LP serie on Tamed Records. "Chaudelande Volume I" contains three songs which demonstrated the multi-faceted universe of GNOD. From the heaviest spacerock parts they ever recorded to meditative neo-folk mantra influenced moments of calmness and introspection, this new recording marks a new step in GNOD cosmic procession. Double bass guitar, percussive heavy drum, that met sound of bell.Some quite part were recorded outdoor between birds and trees, that give a timeless mood to the record. Result shine like a versatile light, eyes burn by the moonlight and the twilight.
