Goyim are a 1 man band from Portland, Maine that plays a mixture of raw black metal and harsh noise and this is a review of his self released 2013 demo "Patriarchism".
"Portrait Of Dark Reasoning" which is also the first song on the demo opens up with dark guitar riffs and then adding in drums, black metal screams as well as being into a more fast, raw and primitive direction and the song only slows down for a second.
"Cast Their Limbs Into The Flames" begins with blast beats and fast, raw and primitive black metal guitar riffs which also utilize some melody and halfway through the song grim vocals finally kick in along with some deeper vocals.
"Gold In One Hand" starts up with some raw and melodic black metal guitar riffs and a few seconds later the music gets heavier and faster along with blast beats from the drums and black metal screams that also utilize some depressive elements and towards the end the music slows down and you can also heat elements of drone.
"Boiled In Ale" opens up with noise style distortion before adding in fast and raw black metal guitar riffs, drums, and depressive screams and cries as well as some distorted melodies and towards the end guitar leads are utilized.
"The Teeth That Gnaw My Loins" kicks in with lo-fi noise sounds and the song is an instrumental under 2 minutes.
"Neighbor's Land" returns the demo back to black metal with fat, melodic, raw and primitive guitar riffs along with aggressive dreams before adding in high pitched black metal screams and the song remains in the same direction.
"A True Whore" which is also the last song on the demo opens up with harsh noise sounds and after awhile black metal guitar riffs are mixed in along with drums that utilize blast beats and high pitched screams
Song lyrics cover hateful themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to to it.
In my opinion Goyim are a very great sounding mixture of raw black metal and harsh noise and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Portrait Of Dark Reasoning" and "Neighbor's Land". RECOMMENDED BUY.
