Self-proclaimed "planetary riff architects" Galaxicon combine the crushing weight of sludge and doom, the bleak atmosphere of US black metal, and a classic/prog rock approach to crafting memorable aural journeys. Their approach to music is loud, destructive, and experimental, yet also meticulously constructed to convey something more than just "heavy." Songs such as "Rapture of the Deep" and "Innkeeper" offer crushing riffs, atmospheric blackened melodies, and dynamic shifts in phrasing and syncopation, while "Pyramid of the Sea" and "The Key, the Gate, the Light" showscase a fast, chaotic side of the volume-worshiping power trio. Galaxicon has shared the stage with a number of respected bands in the scene, including SAVIOURS, ZOROASTER, UNSANE, RWAKE, INTRONAUT, HOWL, THE ATLAS MOTH, DARK CASTLE, BLACK TUSK, and more.

Galaxicon initially self-released their debut album, Old Gods, in digital format and a short-run, one-time-only CD pressing. Clocking in at just over 39 minutes, Old Gods features six tracks of experimental sludge/doom. It was met with acclaim from critics throughout the underground scene. As demand continues to grow, Galaxicon is now exploring options for a vinyl release of Old Gods in the coming months as they have recently begun work on their second album.

Old Gods was recorded and mixed by Alan Burcham (The Unbeheld, Crowlord, Hosoi Bros) at The Secret Team Headquarters in Memphis, TN, and was mastered by James Plotkin (Isis, Sunn0)), Khanate) at Plotkinworks. It features art design and layout courtesy of Memphis-based group Enfectious Erf (Howl, Lo-Pan, The Sword).
