Goatthroat are a band from Germany that plays a very raw and bestial mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Rites Of Blasphemy" which was released as a joint effort between Symbol Of Domination Productions and Tribulacion Productions.
A very dark horror movie sound track sound starts off the album along with some demonic growls a few seconds later and after the intro the music gets a lot more heavy along with some black metal screams and a great amount of death metal elements which also includes a great amount of morbid sounding melodies.
When the music speeds up it brings in more of a raw style of black and war metal along with a small amount of blast beats and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the bass guitars also mix in a very heavy and evil sound at times while some of the slower riffs add in a touch of early 90's doom/death metal and a later track also brings in a brief use of melodic guitar leads.
Goatthroat plays a style of black/death metal that is very raw, bestial and blasphemous sounding and manages to make every minute and second of the recording sound very hateful and evil, the production sound s very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Blasphemous and Satanism themes.
In my opinion Goatthroat are a very great sounding raw and bestial mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Drowned in The Black Vomit Of the Goat Throat" "Rites Of Blasphemy" "Sodo0my And Ecstasy" and "The Final mass". 8 out of 10.
