MIND OF GOD = heavy, beat-driven, ambient dub/industrial/minimal musick.
I've been listening to heavy music in one form or another for as long as I can remember. My older brother turned me on to Kiss, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, etc., when I was about three years old. At the age of twelve, I got my first guitar & started the death metal band Apostasy a few years later. We recorded a well-received demo & played several live shows with other local friends' bands such as Soilent Green, Flesh Parade, Paralysis, & Mule Skinner. Apostasy eventually broke up, but my love of music has never faded. I still play & write on guitar, but I've always loved the darker side of electronic music, too. The heavy dub of acts like Scorn & Coil persistently intrigued me, & I found the sounds & visuals of experimental industrial artists (SPK, Swans, Dissecting Table, Nocturnal Emissions, etc.) to be awe-inspiring. So, in late February of 2013, I decided to start something of my own.....Mind of God. I've been steadily at it since then. Five albums have been released (a mini LP, three EPs, & a full-length LP), with another in the works. Eleven MOG videos have been created so far; they can be seen on YouTube & Vimeo. Two collaboration tracks have also been completed - one with the dark noise artist Phantasm Nocturnes, & the other with experimental avant-garde mastermind Kenji Siratori. Another collaboration track is also in-the-making with someone who many of you know & love; stay tuned. All of you are invited to come along on this ride with me; you just might enjoy it - I know I do. - Jason A. Pizzolato
