Hellgoat are a band from Atlanta, Georgia that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Eden In Flames" which will be released in September as a joint effort between Boris and Pale Horse Records.
Burning fire sounds start off the ep along with some goat noises in the background while the soundscapes are very atmospheric and once the demonic growl kicks in the music goes into a very fast raw black metal direction that also uses a great amount of tremolo pickings and blast beats along with a touch of war metal.
Most of the vocals are grim yet high pitched black metal screams while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the songs also b ring in a great amount of 90's wave black metal influences and you can also hear a small amount of melody being used briefly.
Hellgoat creates another recording that remains true to the raw and satanic black metal style of previous recordings while also mixing in some war metal elements, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism and Anti Christian themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Hellgoat and if you are a fan of raw and satanic black metal, you should check out t his ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Inner Sanctum Ablaze". 8 out of 10.
