Goddakk’s ‘III’ manages to be quite mysterious. ‘III’ creates a strange ambient shoegaze sound similar to Loveliescrushing. Like that larger outfit, Goddakk eschew any form of traditional rhythm. Rather the distorted noise from the guitars provides the only comfort. With an incredible focus on how simple things can expand into new territory, ‘III’ explores with the minimal space it has. It soars into the sky in spite of its limited time. Each one of these songs feels completely separated from the other. Together they form a rather diverse bunch of moods, attitudes, and emotions. None of them feel particularly coherent but that’s part of the charm, to capture a moment.
‘Not Enough’ is aptly named. With the guitar and bass merging together perfectly it creates a sense of floating ever upwards. The bass helps with this expression allowing itself a great deal of dexterity. It is a pity that the song is so short. ‘The Wait’ is a considerably sparser song. Distance is conveyed. Goddakk work hard to keep the sound from getting too unified. Leaving it separated makes it true to its name. ‘A Void Dance’ sounds completely gone. This is a wasted song. Guitars squall their way. When the deeper frequencies come in the song feels nearly drunk off its own power, stumbling around wherever it can. ‘Travel Guide’ lumbers.
For the finale of ‘The Borrowers’ Goddakk take a particularly warm touch to the sound. Returning to the beginning of the EP’s sound it manages once more to soar into the sky, dissipating away into nothing.

Goddakk  are  a  band  from  Boston, Massachuessetts  that  plays  a  very  experimental  form  of  guitar  driven  drone/experimental  noise  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  ep  "III"  which  was  released  by  Siber  Records.
Synths  bring  a  very  experimental  and  dark  ambient  sound  to  the  recording,  while  the  guitars  bring  in  a  distorted  experimental  drone/noise  sound  to  the  music  combining  both  heaviness  and  soft  elements  and  there  are  no  vocals  or  songwriting  present  on  this  recording,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it.
In  my  opinion  Goddakk  are  a  very  great  sounding  hybrid  of  experimental,  drone  and  noise  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Not  Enough"  and  "The  Borrowers".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.

US project GODDAKK is the creative moniker used by guitarist Martin Newman of Plumerai for his solo efforts. The EP “III” should logically be the third of his solo excursions so far, and was released on US label Silber Records as a part of an experimental series of EPs made under the condition 5 songs in 5 minutes.
Newman’s take on this challenge has been to produce five short, atmospheric pieces, with ambient tendencies and textures instrument details as the main ingredients. As conclusive or inconclusive as such material can be, depending on your individual taste for music of this kind I guess.
Not Enough opens with a subtle bass and reverberating light guitar notes covered in a smooth, melodic texture. The Wait follows with slowly plucked guitar notes and nervously resonating guitar notes in a distanced sounding arrangement and a subtle textured noise motif. A Void Dance repeats this setup, but now with bass and guitar plus reverbs/effects. Travel Guide features slow bass with resonating light toned guitar licks and gently surging noise textures and finally The Borrowers maintains the bass presence now with an echoing, reverberating guitar noise texture and subtle haunting melodic overlays.
A well made 5 minute trek into a world of ambient, textured guitar motifs with haunting atmospheres, and most likely with fans of post rock as a likely key audience.
