Goatholocaust/Vociferian/Mattre Bouc/Regimental Records/2006 CD Review

This is a review of a split album of 2 goat metal bands Goatholocaust from Belgium and Vociferian from France and the album is called "Matre Bouc" and was released by Regimental Records, we will start of the review with Goatholcaust.

Goatholocaust play a style that mixes goat metal with war metal, black and death metal in a very satanic way.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with alot of brutal blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone that is mixed down low in the mix and seems to follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars, as for the synths they are only used on one song and they have a very dark and evil avant garde sound to them.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast goat metal riffs that are also heavily influenced by war, black and death metal and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on their side of the recording.

Vocals are a mixture of high pitched black metal screams and deep goat metal growls and some spoken word female parts, while the lyrics touch on Satanism and Summerian themes, as for the production it is very dark, heavy and raw.

In my opinion Goatholocaust are a very good goat/black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS "Black Flies Ov Hell" and "Baphomet Grand Kruxxification (Worship The Goat Ov Satan".

Now we are going to review Vociferian from France which plays a style that I would describe as being brutal goat/war/black metal band.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with alot of brutal blast beats being thrown in at times, while the bass playing has a very dark tone that is kind of mixed down low in the mix and seems to follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast goat/war/black metal riffs that are very raw and primal with some death metal influences ad there are little to no lead guitars or solos present on their side of the recording.

In my opinion Vociferian are a very good goat metal band and have the best music on this split, and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS "Mother Regression" and "Pride Ov The Unholy Path (The Ultimate Purikaion)".

In my opinion this is a great split between 2 goat metal bands, and if you are a fan of this style, you should add this to your library. RECEMMONDED BUY.

Vocals re all deep goat metal growls while the lyrics cover Anti-judeo-christianity, Evil, Darkness and Death, as for the prouduction it has a very heavy, dark, raw and evil sound to it.
