If you've ever wondered what the missing link between, say, Venom, early Slayer and Motorhead may have been with female vocals, look no further. The shouted vocals, seriously dark and grim atmosphere, lyrical concepts of war and killing, the aggression and overdriven basslines, it's all here. Goatfyre took the power of Motörhead and Venom, the lyricism of Slayer and combined it with their own hardcore punk background and created extreme music. Goatfyre easily can be listened by a thrash, grind, black metal, hardcore punk and dozens of subsequent genres followers. How can any fan of extreme music resist the chainsaw guitar sounds? No matter your depth of metal knowledge and history, if you don't know and respect Goatfyre you know nothing. Loud and ferocious music, All of these songs for the most part are the best representation of youthful energy, anger when it's dealt with properly and productively, this is a must-have album for any self-respecting metal head, or fan of extreme music in general !!
