Album Notes
RIOTGOD began as an idea in 2006, discussed between drummer Bob Pantella and bassist Jim Baglino both currently of Monster Magnet.

They agreed to create a new band that would express their particular musical spirit.
There would be no draining search, no extensive auditions: two people were on the list of possible accomplices.

When guitarist Garrett Sweeny and vocalist Mark Sunshine were invited, quickly agreeing to participate in 2007, the group was officially formed and the name RIOTGOD was chosen.

A complex array of personal musical influences and abilities was assembled -- within a short period of time the result was a 14 song CD and a tight live show, complete with unique visual effects.

Swede (FatCat Radio)

Side project that deserves to be front and center
Overall the music on RIOTGOD could be compared to stoner rock ala Monster Magnet, 70's style arena rock ala Led Zeppelin, 90's grunge rock ala Soundgarden along with a bit of psychedelic rock. As much as the band's marketing hook (the Monster Magnet connection) bring to the table what really makes this cd are the 'other guys' - Mark Sunshine (vocals) and Garrett Sweeny (guitars). More accurately, what makes this disc stand out are the contributions from all four band members. Collectively they have created some great music. Music that at once draws on their influences, sounds immediately familiar, and yet fresh at the same time. That's one of those elusive traits when it comes to songwriting I believe. Creating something that sounds familiar without sounding like a retread. RIOTGOD has that ability. The songwriting on this disc is particularly strong. And this really is an album that holds up to repeated listens - particularly the 1st half - another sign of an especially talented group.

Standout tracks include 'Light of The Sun' 'Crusader', 'The Time Is Now', 'Pinata' and 'Love It Or Leave It'.
