GOATKRAFT set release date for IRON BONEHEAD debut, reveal first track

Iron Bonehead Productions sets March 9th, 2018 as the international release date for Goatkraft’s shock & awe debut EP, Angel Slaughter, on CD and 12″ vinyl formats.

A power trio hailing from Norway, Goatkraft released the truly titled War Metal – Promo 2017 tape via Iron Bonehead before promptly setting to work on their first longer-length strike. And at 19 razing minutes, Angel Slaughter is indeed a short, sharp shock to the system that’s nevertheless fully satisfying and self-contained. Crude and rude and completely stripped bare of any remotely excessive adornment, Goatkraft are a study in stark, stultifying minimalism. Their punishing, primitivist surge hearkens back to the almighty Blasphemy, but truly finds its voice within the seething spite of Black Witchery; not for nothing do they conclude Angel Slaughter with a cover of that band’s eternal “Unholy Vengeance of War.” Barbaric black metal is the order of the day, then, done with nuclear-powered panache, red-eyed and regimented, and a true devotee’s lust for pure form. Indeed, the purity of violence – rabid, roiling, righteous – doesn’t come more distilled and undiluted than Angel Slaughter. Here begins the whirlwind of Goatkraft.
