HELLGOAT “Blasphemy From Serpent Tongues”

“Blasphemy From Serpent Tongues”

Battle Helm Rating

Oh boy am I really looking forward for this to be some really dirty, hellish old school death/black/thrash metal. Yeah I know, I am setting myself up for a major disappointment if this turns out to be anything completely different but with a name like HELLGOAT you just gotta be old school. Anything but is kinda false marketing. And seeing as this is a vinyl rerelease of a 12 year old release I feel like a total twat for having missed out on it completely the first time around. And in light of that this is old school as in it is old today. This is black metal in the Mayhem school of thoughts. Crude and very basic yet filled with so much raw emotion that you can almost touch it with your bare hands. Listening to this feels like razors are cutting your ear drums. This is totally up there with bands like Blasphemy and Profanatica in hardcore black metal assault. The chaos and disorder this creates in my head is what is appealing about this. it is not your run of the mill ordinary black metal album. Anders Ekdahl
