READ WHAT CRITICS SAY ABOUT THE GOATS:

“Shades of Humble Pie, Bad Co., Crowes and the Stones color the hard-rockin’ boogie-blues delivery of guitarist/vocalist/bandleader and Chris Robinson-esque (Black Crowes) frontman Todd McCullough. Raunch rawk riffs, gut bucket vocals, great stage command, solid songwriting, soaring leads and a super tight low-end. Consistently named top rock band in the NY,NJ,PA tri-state area." - Al Muzer, The Aquarian Magazine.

“The American quartet have produced a blues rock debut and have forged them into a strong set of songs, over which those who aspire to be the Blackest of Crowes would cast an envious eye. "On Your Knees" has a sass and good infectious riff, and the harder-edged "Nothing To Lose" showcases Todd McCullough’s whiskey-soaked vocals well. Solid retro songs, well played." - Steve Swift- Power Play Magazine, England.

"Has a smoky, slinky groove to it, and might have you thinking of the Black Crowes and the familiarity of ’70s rock, a mix of acid rock, southern rock, and Texas blues hits home." – Bill Ribas, NY Street Review.

“This New Jersey-based quintet brings back that hard driving blues-rock sound in a big way. This disc boast(s) thick slabs of smoky, rootsy romp and stomp rock ‘n’ roll… bursting with tasty guitar licks, rollicking bass lines, and throaty vocals, encompassing retro rock to the hilt. The Holy Goats bring the bell-bottom blues of Humble Pie and The Faces back to the forefront.” - Mike SOS, Skratch Magazine, NYC

Amazing Debut!

How this amazing debut release from The Holy Goats got overlooked just blows me away! Blending rich and soulful vocals, impressive blues-inspired guitar riffs and solos, a tight rhythm section, and a 12 pack of great songs, that will get your rock n roll juices flowing in no time flat! This is a rock n roll band whose music must be heard . Sounding like the second coming of Bad Company, with a dash of Zeppelin, The Holy Goats prove to be worthy of comparisons. Serving up great rockers, soon to be classics, like “On Your Knees” “Presence of Mind” “Nothing to Lose” “Rock n Roll”.

The Holy Goats are the type of rock n roll band you’d go see and there would be nothing fancy, just a bunch of guys in t-shirts with some Marshalls and their instruments, they’d plug in and they’d blow you away! The Holy Goats are just what the doctor ordered. I for one a
