Godsized are four like-minded musicians with one main ambition in mind – channelling everything they have into creating heavy, groove based hard rock culminating in powerful, dynamic live shows. After solidifying the bands’ line-up in 2008 the band quickly established a name for themselves on the live circuit. The band spent the rest of the year alternating between the road and working on new material – keeping the hooks huge and the riffs even bigger.
