Goatfuck are a band from Germany that plays a very raw and old school mixture of black and thrash metal with some elements of punk rock and this is a review of their self released 2019 album "Y".
A very heavy and old school sound starts off the album while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking which also gives the music more of a raw feeling. Vocals are mostly grim yet high itched black metal screams along with the music also being heavily influenced by both the first and second wave.
Melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing along with the music also bringing in a great amount of thrash metal elements. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while the music also brings in the raw aggression of punk rock at times.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as some growls also being utilized in some parts of the recording, when guitar leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic yet old school style and all of the music also sticks to a heavier direction. The production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover darkness, violence, suicide and alcohol themes.
In my opinion Goatfuck are a very great sounding raw and old school mixture of black and thrash metal with some elements of punk rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ritual Mass Suicide" "I Am :Advocatus Diaboli" and "Drink With Me". 8 out of 10.
