“There are rumbling bass lines that would not sound out of place on a Jesus Lizard record, adding depth to the abrasive guitar riffs that put the rock into this heavy punk sound. Tuneful but aggressive at the same time, the songs are short sharp shocks that leave you wanting to play them again.”
-Black Insect Laughter (UK)
“Gaytheist (soak in the awesomeness of that name for a second), will be showing everyone present just how much fun being a human sound piñata can be.”
“Gaytheist is a trio that rips rock music apart like a paper shredder, and does so with infectious and gleeful abandon. Fans of Black Elk, Scratch Acid, and all manner of hard-edged metal deconstruction will find plenty of bile to swish between their teeth.”
The two lone members of Great Falls have been mainstays in Seattle’s heavy music underground for years. As members of Playing Enemy, Demian Johnston and Shane Mehling traveled the US and Europe, released two full lengths and multiple split EP’s before realizing that Seattle’s noise scene was actually a better fit for them. The duo called their noise project Hemingway and released countless DIY cassette tapes and CD’s all depicting Johnston’s acutely dark artistic ability. “Shane and I started doing straight up noise shows after that (Playing Enemy), and found a new scene we felt more at home in.” recounts Demian speaking about the origins of Hemingway. “After spending a few years doing mostly noise shows we started writing more traditional songs. We were slowly changing the direction of our band so we changed the name.” and thus Great Falls was born. “It's been nice to remember that you are good at an instrument, but we still love making noise. “
