Night of the Goat

Rated 1.8/5 (36%) (10 Votes)

Very little information is provided about this unknown trio that goes by the name of Satanic Funeral. One can easily guess what those guys are all about though, and The Horned God on the cover art is unmistakable. This release was the other promo that came in with Dimentianon, in the unexpected package from Non Compos Mentis Records. Introduced by ambient samplings of winds, sheeps (goats?) and bells, Night of the Goat bursts into grimness for the rest of its short (32 minutes) life. Nothing too fancy or refined, but rather on the other side of the production spectrum. This is cold, raw, distorted, dirty and simple satanic Black Metal. The songs are in the 2-3 minute range and the music is still melodic and a bit catchy while the old school tag would be quite appropriate. Not only is it distorted, but you can even hear some feedback and other electrical sounds. In many instances, cymbals are basically the most you can get from the drum kit. The vocals are the parts I liked the most, for they are a very good style of bestial grunt. Convincing and efficient. Some rasps and whispers complement the vocal range of this beast. A few compositions retain my attention such as: The Constant Loathing, Burial Begins and Unholy Pagan Fire (ode to Beherit).

I believe that Night of the Goat will find friends among the fans of the dirtier, unrefined and sloppy Black Metal acts.
