      Goatlord's first album (1991).

      Goatlord's debut must be the dullest thing to come out of Las Vegas, a slow and dingy offering of death-influenced doom metal that maintains a compelling raw and dirty atmosphere for the first few minutes before giving over to extreme tedium as it crawls along at an unsatisfying pace.

      The sound quality is poor, but this isn't really an issue and in fact perhaps aids the atmosphere. The problem lies in the musicianship itself, which is uninspired and entirely dull, the drums possessing a synthetic tone in songs like 'The Fog' that belies its programmed nature, while the guitars are only given an energetic kick in comparatively brief sections of the final two songs. The vocals are quite twisted and sinister which is cool (obviously), but even this isn't enough to save this album from mediocrity. This must have seemed like quite a novel mix of genres in 1991 (doom, death and primordial black metal), but it's been done so much better since.

      1. Blood Monk
      2. Distorted Birth
      3. The Fog
      4. Underground Church
      5. Chicken Dance
      6. Acid Orgy
      7. Possessed Soldiers of War
      8. Sacrifice
