Serious symptoms of imminent deathrash
Tick, tack! The pest and plague is back! Norway’s premiere metal
grottonauts, Goat the Head, is unexpectedly at it again! A hard rock
band attempting death metal, or a death metal band attempting hard
rock? The mystery has haunted fans and foes for almost two decades.
Howling along to the birth cry of the third millennium, Goat the Head
was hatched from ideals of sincerity, intensity and insanity. The band
burst onto the metal music scene in a flurry of fur-hair and filth
with the crude “Neander Tales EP” (Left Horn Records, 2006),
introducing the public to their own particular take on the
Contemporary Primal Caveman Death Metal genre. The addition of bizarre
and entrancing live shows created a significant underground notoriety
and foundation was laid for a proper debut album the following year.
On “Simian Supremacy“ (Tabu Recordings, 2007) the band ramped up their
troglodyte game considerably. Popularity grew beyond Norwegian
borders, and the band had amassed some sort of sick cult following.
The strange and cinematic music video for the sixteen second song
“Darwinian Minions” didn’t exactly hinder that. Live appearances grew
in quantity, energy and sheer outlandishness. After witnessing Goat
the Head live in a London boxing ring, HIM’s Ville Valo compared the
spectacle to “watching the Animal Planet with a chainsaw gaffa-taped
to your head”.
Follow up album “Doppegängers” (Aftermath Music, 2010) represented a
great evolutionary leap for the heads. Smelly pelts were shrouded in
fancy space threads, both visually and sonically. The album was mixed
and mastered by Tue Madsen, giving it its loud, violent and mechanical
quality. It also saw a more experimental side to the band, like on the
death metal gospel crossover duet “This Tube is the Gospel” together
with Kirsti Huke.
Now however, the body is showing some serious symptoms of imminent
deathrash. Goat the Head is reemerging from the mire with rejuvenated
vigor and a brand new album! A groovy and organic metal amalgam whose
tar-dripping characteristics was conceived in Oslo’s Amper Tone
Studios in cahoots with producer Bård Ingebrigtsen.
If You haven't already, You should check out the animated video Per
Spjøtvold drew Himself for the first single "The Call Of Ixodes". The
album "Strictly Physical" will be released on magnificent vinyl
