Biography

“(GOAT) rolled through their set like a Sabbath-inspired Beast...” -Mike Bowring (Drum Media)

GOAT are a doom metal duo from Perth, Australia that formed in late 2011.

Their debut EP 'Sign of the Dead' was recorded over a nine month period at the Dhammaloka Buddhist Temple and released independently on the 5th May 2012. It quickly became the local feature album on RTR FM and received glowing reviews.

“for a two piece the sound is huge – the guitar’s appropriately doused in lava, the drums are hulking and just a little bit sloppy when they need to be...it will certainly scratch that itch for Homme-type fuzz riffery.” –Lyndon Blue (Cool Perth Nights)

The EP’s lead single ‘Bury the King’ was also nominated for the WAM Song Of The Year 2012.

GOAT have supported fellow stoner acts Arrowhead (NSW) and Broozer (VIC) and are currently working on new material set for release in 2013.

Lyrics

Bury The King

Written By: GOAT

Out of touch, out of reach
So many wounded there is no vaccine
Armies marching into the streets
We must kill to cleanse this disease

Nothing left but misery
No safe place for our children to sleep
Bury the son, bury the King
Bury the hope that we will live

Chain Smoking In Gallows

Written By: GOAT

I am locked in the basement
They hope that no-one will find me
I can hear them talking
My arm hurts where he bit me

Life is wasted on the living
Darkness has overtaken the city
I can hear them drawing nearer
I can hear them drawing nearer (no)

Oh god what have they done to me?
Voices in my head are deafening
My skin is itching and peeling
And I can't resist this feeling

Life is wasted on the living
Darkness has overtaken the city
I can hear them drawing nearer
I can hear them drawing nearer (no)

Lost Children

Written By: GOAT

We are the lost children
Parents slaughtered in their homes
Scattered tribes amongst the cold
Winter snaps our fragile bones

We are the lost children
Oceans of frozen hope
Fighting for our freedom
Hiding in the woods

We are the lost children
Born into a new dark age
All the rest have gone insane
Buried in a world of pain

We are the lost children
We are mankind's final stand
We will never surrender
We must survive at any cost

Lord Of The South

Written By: GOAT

Countless horrors I can't remember
I'm alright, I don't mind
Storms have gathered in the sky
Did I fail? Did I fail the

Lord of the South
Lord of the South

Finally, are we free?

Ghouls and vampires do his bidding
Watch the goat rule the sheep
We once dreamt of a new beginning
Now we bown down before the

Lord of the South
Lord of the South

The dead will rise to devour the young
Power drawn from the blackened sun
They will drink from rivers of blood
Scream of the dying, what have I done?
