Currently based in Calgary, Alberta, Jeanie Keebler started writing her own songs in 2010, self-releasing them in 2012, and began performing them live with her metal band, Ye Goat-Herd Gods, in 2014. With Gord Olson (Divinity, Demisery) on vocals, the music is extreme, but also draws heavily from the rich traditions of heavy, thrash, black and death metal. Bands such as Amon Amarth, Lord Belial, Immortal and Necrophobic are strong influences. The demo, Becoming Flesh, was re-released as an album in 2015, and a second effort, Ashes Shall Be Made of Them, came out October 31st, 2018. Bassist Matt Riley and drummer Matt Telgen toured the songs around regionally in clubs and festivals, with Jeanie and Gord. Jeanie Keebler is busy promoting the latest album, but is also beginning to carve out the next slab of genre-bending metal.
