Weregoat-Unholy Exaltation Of Fullmoon Perversity EP
For those who like their death metal fused with frenzied assaults of black-tinged mosntrosity, then Weregoat's ''much too long named'' Ep must be a good find. Weregoat have been around 2009 and their Ep shows that the arrival of a full-lenght is close, and expected. This is pure satanic, blasphemous and bestial war metal played in a way that reminds the listener of Blasphemy, Sarcofago, Bestial Warlust, Conqueror and alike. Though it has eight songs, the Ep is short and you won't even feel time flying.
This Ep has got to be the best war metal in sometime, because it is so chaotic, outrageous and blasphemous, that one can only imagine. The atmospere is enough to take control of the listener, but the riffs and guitars provide even more. The tone of the guitars is dark, buzzy and filthy to the bone and it can blend in with the rest of the instrumental work easily. The riffs are usually vicious tremolo barrages and bestial death metal attacks, however sometimes the Ep may take a different direction. This direction is perhaps the greatest separator that divides this from all the other black/death metallers, for me atleast. There is a frequent use of dark and doomy dirges, accompanied with sinister melodies and nicely-done mid-paced drum beats. Especially the song ''Invoke The Black Oblivion'' is a doom laden track that may give listeners an old-school death/doom vide, especially considering bands like Purtenence, Cianide, Autopsy or Incantation. Of course just because the tempo slows down every once in a while doesen't mean that the whole Ep is going to slow down. The Ep is bestial and savage all the way and doomy sections are pretty limited.
Weregoat's Ep is a promising one, and could only be better if turned into an album. This is war metal with dark, growling vocals, short and effective tracks and razor sharp riffs. If you dig old school black/death or even black/thrash, then this is your thing for sure. The only last thing left to say is that this is one thing you shouldn't listen to on a dark night, when you are all alone. Especially if you imagine the demonic goat in the album cover, it's pretty damn frightening.
