Goatsblood - _Goatsblood_
(Rage of Achilles, 2000)
by: Kirsty Buchanan (9 out of 10)
If this is the product of the "rotten social underbelly of Vacouver", then I feel we owe a debt of gratitude to the Canadian nation. This is the first release I've ever heard described as "heavy grinding crust sludge metal", but I am now compelled to seek out more. "Bitterasbile" opens the album as it means to go on, with fierce grating vocals and cymbal crashing percussion. Heavy guitar work complements the mighty drumming and both support the amazing vocal style of singer Blair. There is not a single track present that does not justify its existence. Amazing lyricism and song construction simply add to the reasons why I love this album. The artwork too, although simple, is effective. Goatsblood: an extreme experience. Canada: quite scary!!!
