Goat Thrower - Cult of the Germanic Horde
There are many different activities you can do with your goat. You can milk it, wean it, brush its hair, stream holiday decorations from its horns, but one thing you should never ever do is throw it. Case in point is Cult of the Germanic Horde. The Mad Arab and Sabbatic Goat, in a mad frenzy of goat throwing, fucked up their equilibrium so badly that they permanently lost all sense of musical direction. Actually, the music really ain't so bad. Pretty decent old school blackthrash with a bit of an epic feel to it. The vocals are where things go awry, or start to get good depending on your disposition. Sabbatic Goat may have been trying to replicate the sound of a whinnying billy goat with his effects laden yalping. All in all its a fun album to listen to even if these guys were taking the piss.
