Debut album from Brazil's Hammergoat, these guys play blackened death metal that reminds me of some of the proto bands such as Venom, Hellhammer, Sarcófago, although nowhere near as good. The album sounds as though it was recorded live in a rehearsal room, and to be fair, it probably was. If you like this sort of raw, don't-give-a-shit attitude you might like this, but for me there's nothing here to warrant another listen. The ideas feel very clichéd, they also use ridiculous intros to certain tracks, and the playing is very sloppy. The only thing Hammergoat have going for them is their raw energy, and depending on the listener, the shock factor. Avoid.
