VOODOO GODS, the project featuring current and former members of such bands as MORBID ANGEL, MANOWAR and BEHEMOTH, will release its debut EP in August.

According to the group's official bio, VOODOO GODS was founded under the name SHRUNKEN HEAD in Tampa, Florida in early 2001 by Alex von Poschinger, Tony Norman (ex-MORBID ANGEL, MONSTROSITY, TERRORIZER) and Seth Van De Loo (SEVERE TORTURE). In early 2006 VOODOO GODS was joined by Hiro (DIES IRAE, SCEPTIC, DECAPITATED, VIRGIN SNATCH) on guitar and Nergal (BEHEMOTH) on vocals. Earlier this year the band was joined by bass guru Jean Baudin (NUCLEAR RABBITS, ELEMENT OF SURPRISE),Mike Browning (MORBID ANGEL, NOCTURNUS, ACHERON) on additional vocals and guitar legend David Shankle (MANOWAR) on lead guitar.

VOODOO GODS' material is described as "metal, with influences from death and thrash metal. Most of the lyrics deal with voodooism and spirits of nature, as well as the effects done by Christianity and colonialism. VOODOO GODS are a band and not a side project. VOODOO GODS are an ancestral musical system of worship and ritual practices, were gods are born and honoured along with the veneration of ancient and recent ancestors, who earlier ruled the same tutelary gods. This band shares metaphysical conceptions based on a dual cosmological machinery of art. You could describe VOODOO GODS as: 'The serpent under whose auspices gather all who share the faith' and music is the vehicle for the expression of the serpent's power. Their music is an expression of spirituality, of connection with divinity and the spirit world!!!!"
