1. Can you tell us a little bit about the band for those that have never heard of you before?
Weregoat started our campaign of Fullmoon Perversity in 2009 with the intent of crushing and defiling the pathetic cunts in our town with raw fucking Holocaust Noise. Portland has been plagued in recent years with a torrent of shit "metal" bands, fashion whores with bulletbelts and hipsters with Dark Throne patches. Weregoat was created to terrify and offend these fucks with real fucking Death Metal Barbarism.
Sadoseducer- Doomhammers of Primal Lust and Hate
Indiscriminate Impregnator- Six String Sodomizer of the Virgin Whore and Sepulchral Vomit
Nocturnal Hellfukker- SubAtomic Desecrating Malevolence and Kommands of Bestial Penetration
2.How would you describe your musical sound?
Distorted, Demented, Disgusting....Fucked!!
Raw and nasty I guess would be the best way to describe our sickness. We try to create an atmosphere of crushing ritual violence. Heavy. Cacophonic. Evil.
3.What are some of the lyrical topics and subjects the band explores with the music?
Human Extermination, Ritual Bestiality, Sexual Depravity, Fullmoon Sacrifice... I think the song titles speak for themselves.
Some title are "Nuclear Cunt", "The Hideous Stench of Occult Slaughter" and "Abysmal Whore" to name a few.
4.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the bands name?
Hahahaha! Waking up naked in petting zoos after the Fullmoon! I believe we were shitfaced, celebrating the Sadoseducer's creation.. We hadn't played "music" together for years, and decided it was time to piss some cunts off.. I think at the time of our near black-out ritual, I yelled out "Weregoat", and it went from there.
Weregoat is a life style, most undesirable.
5.What are some of the best shows that the band has played so far and how would you describe your stage performance?
The Blasphemophager/Diocletion show was fucking intense. We also desecrated the stage with Impiety, another stand out.. They actually smelled worse than us!
Our live shows are violent, with the sickening stench of death thick in the air, due to the heaps of rotten animal and human relics we adorn ourselves with, as well as the stage and mic stands. Smoke, blood and huge spikes... People get cut up on our mic stands all the time. It's also very dark when we play, so they don't see the rotting flesh, bones and steel that are inches from their faces... 'til it's too late!!
6.Do you have any touring plans for the future?
Nothing yet booked. Some things are in the works for the northwest and B.C., but nothing I can talk about yet.
7.The album has been released by both Parasitic and Dark Descent Records, how did you get in contact with both labels and how would you describe the support that they have given you so far?
Parasitic is the label of Sadoseducer. Dark Descent put out the Ritual Necromancy disc, so we've been in contact with them for a short while. Both labels have great distribution and promotion. It seems that Dark Descent is on a mission for world domination, more cunts for us to desecrate!
8.On a worldwide level how has your music been recieved by black/death metal fans?
So far, the response has been very positive. Not the response we imagined; we aim to disappoint. Apparently Weregoat has fallen into the wrong hands, people seem to be into it haha! But I have noticed fewer of the trendies at our shows, so we must be doing something right!
9.What is going on with the other band projects these days?
Knelt Rote is currently writing material for an upcoming release on NWN!, and is also organizing a European tour, ending that the NWN! Fest in Berlin.
Ritual Necromancy is writing new material as well, after touring with Impetuous Ritual, Grave Upheaval, Cruciamentum, and Anhedonist, as well as playing the Rites of Darkness festival. Also a new project called Terror Oath featuring the infamous V.K. is working on some demo material. Aldebaran has a new record coming out and will be doing a short tour In Europe in May.
10.What are some bands or musical styles that have influenced your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?
Ha, too fucking many to mention! I’m sure you can hear our influences very easily…everything from Reek of Putrefaction era Carcass, to Vengeance War ‘Til Death. There's so much coming out right now, a lot of great shit.. I hardly have time to search for new bands, some favorites right now are the new Antediluvian, Revenge, Bestial Raids and Proclamation releases. I can't stop listening to Radioactive Vomit's "Witchblood" cassette either. Razor, Black Witchery and Candlemass seem to always be on the turntable as well..
11.How would you describe your views on Occultism, Satanism or Anti Christianity?
I've always been called to the dark. It's in me. Weregoat is the ritual. True fucking Metal is The only god.
12.Outside of music what are some of your interests?
Motorcycles, guns, Haunted places, dead shit, drinking, fucking.. I'm highly evolved!
13.Any final words or thoughts before we wrap up this interview?
Thanks for your time and interest!!
Weregoat is the boot on the throat of all false cunts. Die in Pain.
