Archgoat – Heavenly Vulva (Christ’s Last Rites)
I know Metal, particularly Black Metal has always had a predominantly anti-religious, primarily anti-Christian, stance, but judging by the cover art and song titles, Archgoat take it to the extreme. “Heavenly Vulva (Christ’s Last Rites)” is a crude, crusty low-fi deviant “onslaught on the blind, deluded fraud worshippers and knee-bending whoremongers who follow the path of the Liar!”
However, regardless of your religious beliefs, if you like heavy, old school black metal, you should be able to appreciate “Heavenly Vulva (Christ’s Last Rites).” The riffs are heavy and the drums are pounding. The vocals are low, growling rants and even if you can’t understand a word they are saying, their hatred is obvious.
“Defiled, invasive unsanctified Black/Death delivered in a corrupt, vile and demonic fashion, these anti-epiphanies embed themselves in the sacred flesh, spilling blood from the demised dog’s quivering body, funeral bells chiming as paradise is ransacked and the deceptive lie of centuries is exposed.” This quote from the press release pretty much sums up the new EP from Archgoat So if you like your metal heavy, furious and full of blasphemy, this is for you.
