Introducing the "Voodoo Magic" of Goat

We are extremely excited to announce the forthcoming release of ‘Goatman’, the debut 7” by the band Goat.

Goat are a collective who hail from a small and very remote village called Korpolombolo in deepest darkest Sweden.

Legend has it that for centuries, the inhabitants of the village of Korpolombolo were dedicated to the worship and practices of Voodoo.

This strange and seemingly unlikely activity was apparently introduced into the area after a travelling witch doctor and a handful of her disciples were led to Korpolombolo by following a cipher hidden within their most sacred of ancient scriptures.

The reason it led them there is unknown, but their Voodoo influence quickly took hold over the whole village and so they made it their home - there, they were able to practice their craft unnoticed and unbothered for several centuries.

This was until their non-Christian ways were discovered by the Church and they were burned out by the crusaders, the survivors cursing the village over their shoulders as they fled.

To this day, the now picturesque village of Korpolombolo is still haunted by this Voodoo curse; the power of the curse can be felt throughout the grooves of this Goat record.

The record which is released on February 13th is a limited two track 7”, that features the tracks‘Goatman’ and ‘The Sun and the Moon’ and is a precursor to a full length album which will be launched later in the year.

Here is a great video of the track ‘Goatman’:

And here is what some people have already said about 'Goatman':

"Goatman made me pull my shirt off and start quoting Predator 2: “Voodoo magic. Fucking voodoo magic, man!”
John Doran (The Quietus)

“The sound of giant crystal meteorites being fired out from the black hole of a new psychedelic mass -INCREDIBLE!”
Cherrystones (Brutal Music)
