SHIHAD - OLD GODS AU TOUR at Manning Bar (University of Sydney, NSW) on Friday, 15 October 2021
If anger is an energy, then Old GodsShihad’s 10th studio album since forming in Wellington in 1988 – could singlehandedly power the New Zealand city for a year.

Indeed if you thought 2014’s seething, pummelling FVEY was peak fury, you ain’t heard nothin’ yet.

“I don’t think FVEY even compares with the anger I feel now with what’s going on,” says frontman Jon Toogood. “I wrote that before Trump was in power. There’s been some real dark shit happen, worse than what I could have imagined.”

It did, however, take some time for the singer to find his voice. As a unit Shihad may have spent the past few years writing the kind of lurching, bulldozing riffs they’ve specialised in for more than three decades – of the blistering “Little Demons” Toogood quips: “It’s one of those riffs where if I’d heard it I’d have gone, I wish I’d written that. And luckily, we wrote it!” – but the frontman wasn’t sure of what he had to say.
