Goatvulva where a solo project from Finland that consists of the main person behind Beherit and played a bestial mixture of war, black, death metal and grindcore and this is a review of his self titled 2020 compilation which consists of demos that where recorded in the mid 80's and early 90's.
A porno orientated intro starts off the compilation before adding in some high pitched black metal screams and heavy bass guitar riffing. Most of the tracks are very short in length along with the fast tremolo picking also giving the songs more of a raw feeling and blast beats can also be heard during the faster sections of the tracks.
Demonic voices and bestial growls can also be heard at times while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow,mid paced and fast parts. At times the music also gets very tribal and ritualistic sounding along with the porno samples also making a return on some of the later tracks.
Elements of noise and grindcore are also added into some parts of the music and as the compilation progresses a brief use of dark sounding melodies, whispered vocals and doom metal influences can also be heard, when guitar solos and leads are finally utilized they are done in a very raw yet chaotic style as well as a later track introducing spoken word parts into the music along with a brief use of synths. The production sounds very dark, raw and lo-fi while the lyrics cover Satanism, Darkness, Evil, Porn and Sex themes.
In my opinion Goatvulva where a very great sounding bestial mixture of war, black, death meta, noise and grindcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bitch Goddess" "Crucifixis" "Black 666" and "Hate". 8 out of 10.
