If normal pop music is like watching a sunny day through a passenger window, We Made God’s music would be like riding a monster truck through a blizzard. Violent and adrenaline filled, broken up by the occasional calm eye of the storm.
Their debut As We Sleep has been touted as “Referencing the otherworldly ambient atmospherics ofSigur Rós and Deftones’ driving, muscular riffs” by Q Magazine who gave them a 4/5 for their “audacious debut”. Kerrang magazine was equally thrilled by their debut album, giving them 4 Ks and dubbing it “simultaneously soporific and terrifying” as well as selecting them as one of their Must Hear acts of 2008. We Made God has had a permanent slot on the Kerrang nights at the Iceland Airwaves music festival, always gaining a constant review of 4 Ks for their atmospheric live performance.
Having toured extensively around Iceland since their birth We Made God made their presence known in Great Britain in 2008 with an intense tour from Scotland to London, playing 11 gigs in under two weeks. We Made God are one of those cases where the community played a huge role in the development of their fame. Together with their fans they’ve carved out a niche for themselves, mixing together the tones of the northern lights with the bludgeoning riffs of a polar ice storm.

Live review (4/5)
An hour later, Gaukurinn fills out ignificantly for Hafnafjordurs WE MADE GOD (KKKK),
Whose commanding blend of Sigur Rós ambience, Deftones' wighty dynamics and a propulsive rhythm section make this fledgling band a thrilling prospect to watch.
Playing songs from their forthcoming album, As We Sleep, the band's frontman Maggi – a handsome hybrid of Biffy Clyro's Simon Neil and Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl – yelps, screams and pushes his voice to the heights of the Aurora Bornealis twinkling in the nighty sky."
As we sleep Review
Q Magazine 4/5 (Q recommends)
A big noise in their native Iceland, We Made God deserve a wider audience for their self financed , self-released debut.
Referencing the otherworldly ambient atmospherics of Sigur Ros and Deftones’ driving, muscular riffs,
the quartets epic widescreen soundscapes and frontman Maggi keening vocals are by turns beautiful and harrowing.
An audacious debut.
