Hellgoat are a band from Atlanta, Georgia that plays a very raw and satanic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2014 7 Inch "End Of Man" which will be released by Boris Records.
Dark sound effects start off the ep and they bring a ritualistic feeling to the recording along with some melodic chants which lead up to demonic growls and chaos and then the band brings in a more heavy black/death metal sound along with some grim screams and then the music starts getting very fast and raw along with some brutal blast beats before bringing in a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts with the slower parts having a doom metal feeling to them and the first track closes with spoken word ritualistic parts.
On the second track the band continue with the ritualistic parts before going into an all out fast, raw and bestial black metal assault with the music being very brutal with some death and war metal elements, and during the last minute of the song the music gets more avant garde and occult sounding.
Hellgoat show a great amount of darkness and heaviness with their music and the music is some of the most raw, blasphemous and true black metal that has been released this year, the production is very heavy and raw and the lyrics cover Satanism and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Hellgoat are a very great sounding raw satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this 7 inch. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Demonic Worship of The Horned Beast". 8/5 out of 10.
