Emerging from the murky light defeating depths of hell is Goatkraft and dragging up from the bowels of hell with them is their newest appropriately named offering Angel Slaughter. This writhing bestial slaughtering offers up six brand new tracks of nothing but blistering, soul sucking blackened metal for your misery. Right after a brief intro, Goatkraft jumps straight in to their brand of hellish blackened molten metal without so much as a warning. Once Goatkraft really kicks in to gear after the intro, your head snaps back and your teeth get pushed down your throat before you know it. Angel Slaughter is a malicious and malevolent release that has a complete disregard for life and does its best to extinguish yours before the final gnarled note sounds through your speakers.
Throughout this release, Goatkraft rolls on delivering punishing, visceral, gnarled and incredibly blasphemous tunes one right after another. Each track is menacing and filled with enough venom to put you to rest permanently. Save for the intro, the five tracks that follow it writhe like a witch that is being burned at the stake. These incredibly volatile and offensive tracks assault you from all sides never ceasing as they barbarically bludgeon and bloody you until you are no more than pulp. As a whole, Angel Slaughter is a sonic assault of tremendous proportions. With only nineteen minutes to its name, this offering is a hell razing and earth scorching effort that leaves no life intact.
Through Angel Slaughter, Goatkraft provides you with a cacophony of sickness and utter heresy. This is an abrasive, unrelenting and unapologetic release that aims for your throat from the very first few seconds on. Even as vicious and grave desecrating as this piece is and as much as it grinds down on your skull, you feel the need to hit play again and again. This blackened blitzkrieg is just that, an all out aural assault that hits you hard and hits you often leaving your head split and spinning. Once you press play there is no escape from the bloodied tempest that is Angel Slaughter as you become trapped in their cyclone of pure terror.
Angel Slaughter is an ever twisting and ever malicious record that savagely beats comes after your life once your finger lifts off of the play button. This is a solid release all around providing you with nothing but blasphemous tunes to twist your neck to. The six tracks on this release are all just as good as the others making it to be a well done and entertaining listen that you keep coming back to.
Angel Slaughter will be released March 9, 2018 through Iron Bonehead.
