Review - 'Goat Semen: Ego Svm Satana'

Goat Semen - Ego Svm Satana (2015)

Hell’s Headbangers

Review by Trevor Proctor

One of the most anticipated underground albums in recent memory is set to make a most welcome appearance in February. Way back in 2002 Peruvian black-death band Goat Semen first made an impact with the release of their self-titled demo, a demo that soon gained notoriety and has been repressed a number of times in multiple formats. Since then they’ve released two well received live albums and a few splits here and there but never, until now, a full studio album. Ten years in the making it’s no surprise anticipation around the release of “Ego Svm Satana” has reached feverish levels. Goat Semen's Ego Svm Satana, is set for North and South American release on February 24th via Hells Headbangers.

Review by Trevor Proctor

March will see the release of Gentleman’s Club A Forest of Stars’ fourth album, “Beware the Sword You Cannot See,” which follows the highly rated “A Shadowplay For Yesterdays,” released in 2012. This mysterious English troupe of musicians has a membership of seven and plays a diverse style of psychedelic black metal featuring elements ranging from folk to progressive and a little bit of almost everything in between. Beware the Sword You Cannot See is due to be released on the 3rd of March, coming out via Lupus Lounge, a division of Prophecy Productions.
