Angelcunt (Tales of Desecration)

Rated 3.73/5 (74.67%) (15 Votes)

Wow, I don't think there'll ever be an EP that's 13-and-a-half minutes long that kicks this much ass. ARCHGOAT are a band from Finland that is way ahead of their Black Metal counterparts in terms of songwriting. After this album, the band released a demo in 1993 before splitting up for eleven years, only to return to split our heads open in 2006 with their latest release "Whore of Bethlehem".

There isn't much to say about this album but "awesome". All of these tracks are some of the most furious examples of how excellent Black/Death metal can become. What really boggles my mind if how it took fourteen years before they released a full-length! That matters not, however, because Archgoat are very much alive and they're continuously spreading their message of destruction, hatred and blasphemy with their satanic axe-grinding and ritualistic bone-crushing drumming.

The best tracks on the album are definitely "Rise of the Black Moon" and "Jesus Spawn", two (as you can see) blasphemous-as-hell and hypnotic tracks that echo angel slaughter and virgin defilement through out. If you ever find this EP, buy it without hesitation! Excellent stuff!
