Over-Gain Optimal Death, or OGOD, are a heavy psych power trio from Pasadena, California. Playing blown-out overgaining speed-freak-outs, their sound is enveloped in a total nihilist fuzz atmosphere, mating intoxicating pulsing repetition with hyperactive improvisations and out of body guitar solos. Resurrecting US 60s punk and acid-riffage from the likes of Blue Cheer, the Stooges, MC5 and live Hendrix Experience, OGOD also draws greatly on the in-the-red sound aesthetic and high energy of the Japanese Speed Freak trios of the 80s/90s; High Rise, Mainliner, and Musica Transonic. OGOD's psych interpretation brings light to the other side of the Psychedelic Trip, not that of peace and love, but the jaw grinding speedy anxiety of the illumination of immortal power. Having completed 3 albums, live and studio collaborations with Shazzula (Aqua Nebula Oscillator), and a North American tour with Acid Mothers Temple & the Melting Paraiso U.F.O. in 2010, OGOD are quickly rising as one of the heaviest psych bands of the U.S.
