Archgoat 

ARCHGOAT crawled from the deepest pits of hell to form in 1989, a demonic trio consisting of the brothers Ritual Butcherer and Lord Angelslayer on guitars and vocals/bass respectively, as well as Blood Desecrator on drums. After a pair of demo tapes, ARCHGOAT shook the black metal world in 1993 with the release of their debut EP “Angelcunt (Tales of Desecration)”, showcasing a relentless and bestial blend of black and death metal. With a growing dissolution with the black metal scene at large, and a disagreement with their then record label Necropolis Records over the terms of their debut record, ARCHGOAT vanished from scene in late 1993.

In 2004 the gates reopened anew. ARCHGOAT returned to finally release their long-lost material the following year, and then their first official full-length, “Whore of Bethlehem”, in 2006. Since then they have released two more albums, “The Light-Devouring Darkness” in 2009 and “The Apocalyptic Triumphator” in 2015 under Debemur Morti Productions, as well as a series of splits, EPs, and compilations. Between releases they have carved out a reputation for their malevolent live rituals, storming the shores of Europe, the United States, and Mexico alongside bands such as Behexen, Black Witchery, and Hell Militia.

2018 will see ARCHGOAT unleash their latest satanic opus “The Luciferian Crown”, their second full length under Debemur Morti. An ungodly black sacrament of a kind that only ARCHGOAT can craft, “The Luciferian Crown” is a testament to what black metal should be, bestial, unrelenting, and unholy. Black metal changed, ARCHGOAT did not, and it is their capable hands that shall carry the black flame forward for years to come.
