The High Cost of Playing God
The High Cost of Playing God is an Austin, Texas-based act playing a brutally emotional
and creative brand of metallic hardcore. Equally inspired by legendary forefathers like
Converge, The High Cost of Playing God’s music often sounds like the musical equivalent of a
panic attack– intense emotions and self-loathing combined with a frantic, saw-toothed frenzy
that almost makes it difficult to focus on. But if you stick with them, the rewards are vast: dabs of
dark, twisted melody abound, as do unique and structurally clever songwriting decisions and
phenomenal musicianship. The High Cost of Playing God do not fuck around.
