Benefit for Margriet Compilation

The crossover thrash powerhouse known as The Golers have just released a digital compilation in conjunction with Dewar PR. The purpose of the album is to raise funds for Margriet Tan, the wife of Geoff Tan (the original Golers bassist), who was diagnosed with cancer.

The album consists of 11 tracks by some of the best up and coming underground metal acts and includes an exclusive track from the new project from Daniel Jackson of Void Ritual. The track is for a new project called Desu. Here’s a quick bio about that project:

Desu was created from a love of giant monster movies, Godzilla movies in specific. The name Desu comes from “DesuGoji”, the nickname for the Godzilla suit used in 1995’s ‘Godzilla vs. Destoroyah.

Desu is a side project from Void Ritual’s Daniel Jackson and is somewhat different from Void Ritual style-wise. Desu’s sound is a blend of melodic death metal, black metal and some fairly experimental elements, at least when compared to Void Ritual. The first Desu full-length album, ‘Destoroyah‘ will be released at some point in the summer of 2015 and the album’s lyrics will center around the 1995 Toho film ‘Godzilla vs Destoroyah’.

All proceeds will go to assisting the Tan family. The compilation is available as a “pay as you want” download with a minimum purchase of $3 USD. Contribute to the charity release and pick up your copy of the album at this location.


The Golers will also be playing a benefit show on April 11th in Vancouver to help raise money for the Tan family. The show will be held at Funky Winkerbeans. More details on the show can be found here.
