FUNEREUS – ……RETURN OF THE OLD GOAT (Forever Plagued Records)

Funereus - Return Of The Old GoatNot sure what the six dots are all about, but ‘……Return Of The Old Goat’ comprises seven cuts of blazing, hexing, mostly fast-paced Black Metal that roars through the speakers in little over half an hour. It’s all done in the glorious old spirit of the subgenre and – depending on your level of exposure to (or tolerance of) this sort of straightforward ancient evil worship – you will either love it or feel totally indifferent towards it.

It would be easy for me to sit here in my crow’s nest and decree that ‘I’ve heard this all a thousand times before, often done better, blah, blah, blah, puke, fart, masturbate, waffle, patronise, blah, blah’, but only an ass would dismiss a patently true Black Metal album recorded and delivered with such infectious and tireless conviction.

Top marks to the Mexicans and fuck you (especially if your name is God (and ergo you do not exist (so how are you reading this?))).
