Official biography
Gothic rock's somber influence lands in Mexico with the release of Godless Procession's eponymous debut album. After an intense local scene trajectory, the band boasts the release of its debut album in vinyl, honoring the audio format that gave birth to some of dark rock's defining masterpieces, from influential band's such as Bauhaus, Fields Of The Nephilim, Sisters Of Mercy, The Wake, Alien Sex Fiend and Einstürzende Neubauten among others.  

Godless Procession forms in 2010 in Guadalajara and in its ranks has musicians that have a decade long resume in the local gothic rock scene, having been part of bands in the metal, industrial, etheral and gothic realms. Their proposal to the scene is to invite the listener to explore the dark side of the subconscious, aiding themselves with presentations of a high visual and theatrical impact. During the course of their short existence, the band has been invited as an opening act to bands such as Christian Death and Combichrist who hold an iconic stature within the underground.

The band's debut album includes 10 tracks and was issued independently in 2011 on 12 inch vinyl limited to 300 copies.

Logo Purpose: A symbol in favor of atheism.
