Goat - Live Ballroom Ritual

With only the 2012 release "World Music' under their belt,
why should you bother with this live album?

Because it is the voodoo spawn of the devil. 

This came out in December, too late for my best of the year list
but by the power of Greyskull, Goat should of been on there.

If you are after fuzzed out Psych Afro-beat crossed with Blue Cheer
and Santana, this is the place to come to.

African/Rock drumming drive the songs along with a hypnotic beat,
the rhythm becoming almost another instrument. The tracks are
stretched out and sound almost like a band on the verge of jamming
for the sheer joy of playing........ something I fully endorse!

Non-western musical scales are unleashed through distortion pedals
and wild wah-wah solos take this from blissed out trance music
to proto-Sabbath bursts of amp cranked mayhem.

The female vocals start off pretty identical to their studio recordings
but as the set progresses, they start to sound unhinged, unearthly
and just plain insane.

This is a groovetrip with power chords that make you dance
and head nod at the same time.

Music of excellence!

Get from Rocket Recordings


Thanks to Rachel at Silver PR for sending this to me.
