2016 Best of Metal List #7

Goatess-II:Purgatory Under New Management

Winner of the best album title of the year.  Soooo….I’m going out on a limb and guess that at least one of the members of this band has listened to Black Sabbath.

If you are a Sabbath fan, you will probably enjoy this record.  There are many, many, many Sabbath clones out in the world today.  The retro-Metal movement is saturated and it takes someone with either a different spin or a really polished presentation to stand above the majority of the rabble.  Goatess falls into this latter category.  They aren’t breaking any new ground, but, dammit, they have a slab of some really catchy songs.  Their lead singer used to front doom mainstays, St. Vitus, for a spell.  His voice is downright Osbournian.

Once again, not much touring out of these boys.  Hopefully that will change in the near future.

In the meantime, check out the following title track.
