Marcin Wielewski Permanently amazing! It's a pity that the band changed sound into proto-doom, but this quality is worth it!!! Favorite track: From Sand to Throne.

ChrisSkull. It is pretty rare to pre-order albums from a band I don't know but after listening to the promo track by Gods & Punks there was no possible hesitation. The full album is really great. In many ways Gods & Punks make me think of Monster Magnet from whom this band got their name but there is also a lot of personal stuff in the mix which make this band excellent. Highly recommended for stoner aficionados! Favorite track: Transparent Chains.

Bucky The Ceremony of Damnation saga comes to a close with a grand finale of rifftastic heavy psych. With another heady spin of progressive doom and groovy desert twang the God & Punks have delivered another exquisite output of tripped out blues.

about

We step out of the desert, into the tombs. Enter the Ceremony of Damnation is the result of a year of extensive composing and recording, with "how could we top Dunes?" echoing through our minds as we explored every aspect of our sound in the twelve tracks we put together throughout these twelve months.

So we chose eight of these songs - the ones we found fit best into the context of an album - to presentyou the next chapter of our Voyage series. The songs are more straight to the point, the lyrics are more personal and our influences are everywhere: In the bluesy doom of Welcome to the Ceremony, the progressive (almost indie) groove of Transparent Chains, the Rushtastic instrumental Stop the Clocks, or the punch-in-the-teeth, Damnation. Turn your stereo to the max, roll one up and hit play.

Track Name: Welcome to the Ceremony
Welcome to the Ceremony

Step inside the tomb
Ruins of an ancient doom
Chambers of forgotten lands
Buried by the weight of sand

For some meaning to life
You refuse to enlight
As the greatest of lies
Fills your mind with delight

Witness the gatherings of the choir
Summoned by pain, enchained by fear
Worship the light or burn in fire
Rejoice the turning of the gear

As for one sacrifice
We gave all of our lives
Sold our souls and minds
Sold all of our kind
Track Name: From Sand to Throne
From Sand To Throne

The oceans
Play you a symphony
These warm notes
Keep you ashore
Emotions
Distort reality
The echoes
Deafen your mind

A heartbeat
Heard from a mountain top
It shows there
Might be a way

No oxygen left in your lungs
No space to stay alive
A Simple molecule of life
Would open up your eyes

A love song made for myself
I need it more than anyone else
You climbed the latter so far from home
Took every chance, held on each bone
So just so you know, You made it baby
From sand to throne
Track Name: Blood Moon Sky
Blood Moon Sky

Unworthy lives
Shallow inside
We’re bones and meat
So full of pride

And in the night
Cursed by the light
You feel it rise
The Blood Moon Sky

Your worst companion resides
Deep in the depths of your mind
Your greatest fear it grows
Like poison roots in your soul

Between dimensions these black holes collide
Breaking resistance, melting mankind
Heaviest clouds and the rise of the tide
Washing away all the hate in our eyes
Track Name: Transparent Chains
Transparent Chains

When I look outside
I see claws and fangs
Cybernetic fiends
Beasts with many names

Locked within a cage
Trapped inside my head
As the walls cave in
Like they never had

Plastic fantasies
Show me how my life
Ruined by my greed
What you said was right

Locked within a cage
Trapped inside my head
As the walls cave in
Like they never had
These transparent dreams
Deal you real pain
Blocked by clear lines
With transparent chains

Listen to me
I don’t know what you see
But I know that something isn’t right
Shivering cold
And mouldering fire
It ain’t dark but I can’t see no light
Letting my life drift away
Letting the light slowly fade
Nothing has changed all has stayed the same

Locked within a cage
Trapped inside my head
As the walls cave in
Like they never had
These transparent dreams
Deal you real pain
Blocked by clear lines
With transparent chains
Track Name: The Gearlord
The Gearlord

You steer the wheel
I tell you when to turn
I got the fuel
And the gun
And when you think you’re shining
Look to the sun
It ain’t no miracle
How’d you think this baby runs?

The leash is long enough
So you’ll forget
The chains are heavy
Like solid led
The motor’s running
But the engine’s dead
Cause I planted my idea
Right inside your head
Track Name: Damnation
Damnation

A chilling cold through the open door
Just like a call to the endless void
That was before the first thing you recall
To ashes flames of which you were before

We will all putrificate
Embrace your doom, accept your fate
Damnation, damnation

There is no judgement after all is gone
No one to point out who was right or wrong
There is no plan, to coffins from the womb
A life in vain that ends inside of a tomb

We will all putrificate
Embrace your doom, accept your fate
Damnation, damnation

Soon everyone you know is gone
Like as you had never been born
With all your story left behind
Decayed by the putred hands of time

Meat and bones and nothing else
Blood and veins held by a spine
Made unique just like the rest
Destined to decay with time

Soon everyone you know is gone
Like as you had never been born
With all your story left behind
Decayed by the putred hands of time
