Goatkraft are a band from Norway that plays a raw mixture of war, black and death metal and this is a review of their 2018 ep "Angel Slaughter" which will be released in March by Iron Bonehead Productions.
A very dark and evil sounding intro starts off the ep along with some demonic whispers and voices before going into a very fast, raw and brutal war metal direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams.
Bestial growls can also be heard at times while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the music also mixing in a great amount of 90's and early 2000's influences and as the ep progresses a small amount of mid tempo riffing can also be heard and they close the recording with a cover of Black Witchery's "Unholy Vengeance Of War".
Goatkraft plays a musical style that takes the rawest elements of war, black and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover death, hate, destruction and blasphemous themes.
In my opinion Goatkraft are a very great sounding mixture of black, war and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Angel Slaughter" and "Holocaust Winds Of Blasphemy". 8 out of 10.
