Colin M. Went back and got this based on the strength of the immaculate "Purgatory Under New Management." This is a hell of a debut and a magnificent offering of stoner/doom/all things good. Buy this! Favorite track: Full Moon At Noon.

Rob This is how Doom Metal is meant to sound, just like Lord Vicar,everything here is on the money from the music to the vocals and the production on this, it's a great album. Favorite track: Know Your Animal.
Topi thumbnail
Topi 'Harms Way' by Terra Firma is one of my top3 favourite stoner albums of all time - I love everything about it. The same vocalist, Chritus Linderson, is only one of the many reasons to pick up 'Goatess', as it is filled with massive - yet hypnotic - riffs, and tracks that get better and better with each round of listening. More doomy than Terra Firma was. Favorite track: Oracle Pt 2.

Goatess are Chritus, Niklas, Kenta and Findus from Sweden. Despite having no records out on the market band has already created a massive buzz and appeared on prestigious festivals such as Doom Shall Rise in Germany, with more live appearances on the horizon.

Swedish cult doom metal vocalist Chritus Linderson (Count Raven, Saint Vitus, Terra Firma) has, after a few years off the grid, experienced a strong return to form in the new millennium. Best known nowadays for belting out classic doom metal at the helm of Lord Vicar, he has also been nurturing a more homegrown project which began under the working title Weekend Beast and developed into Goatess.

The concept was born from Niklas & Linderson's desire to, as opposed to the strictly structured doom metal of Lord Vicar, create music that is based on the atmosphere and the worship of the heavy riff. "It is basically the kind of music we would like the most to listen to ourselves", says Linderson, "Our sound is constantly under investigation, an ongoing process...What´s there so far comes naturally when jamming at rehearsals and we´ll just go with it until we are content."

Goatess manage to carve a unique niche for themselves in the overpopulated doom metal scene by grabbing some doom influences, taking them out to the desert and throwing them to the melting pot with some repetitive stoner groove in the vein of Sleep and Kuyss. The result of these dangerous psychedelic experiments is the self-titled debut album.
