Godsend (1995-present): a Gothic band from Norway.
This Godsend is not the one featuring Andy Sneap (ex-Sabbat). This Godsend was mostly a gothic metal solo project for guitarist Gunder Dragsten, having enlisted Dan Swanö (ex-Bloodbath/ex-Edge Of Sanity/ex-Nightingale/ex-Pan-Thy-Monium; vocals/keyboards) and Benny Larsson drums (ex-Edge Of Sanity/ex-Ophthalamia/ex-Pan-Thy-Monium; drums) he would complete the As The Shadows Fall debut in 1993. By the follow-up In The Electric Mist (1995) he had recruited an entirely new line-up in the form of Per Morten Kjöl (vocals), Tom Wahl (guitars), Tommy Halseth (bass) and Henrik Pettersen (drums) before re-instating Swanö, along with new members Tomas Steinscherer (guitar), Erik Oskarsson (ex-Nightingale; bass), Benny Larsson (drums) for A Wayfarer's Tears (1997), an album of classic Swedish doom metal that also featured bonus tracks at the end that were originally on their first demo. Although the act has been inactive as of late, they are still assumed to be in operation.
