There's a ton of this occult doom rock floating around these days, so much so that's it difficult to parse out the primo stuff out of legions of clones. I have discovered this EP by Year of the Goat (from Sweden, of course), and it's quickly one of my most-spun over the last few months. Fans of Pentagram, Graveyard, Witchcraft, The Devil's Blood, and Noctum will find much to enjoy here: tales of hedonism and regret, crushing fuzz riffs, flaxen hair blowing in the northern winds, and even a cover of Sam Gopal's "Dark Lord." Hopefully they will release a full length before the darkness swallows them.
