Goatess Announces Self-Titled Album Release

Svart Records has announced July 5th as the international release date for Goatess's self-titled debut album. The following press release was issued about the band:

"Goatess is a Swedish quartet comprising Chritus, Niklas, Kenta, and Findus. Despite having no records out on the market, Goatess has already created a massive buzz and appeared at such prestigious festivals as Doom Shall Rise in Germany, with more live appearances on the horizon. Goatess shall be released by Svart on CD, limited double LP, and digital download - track listing and cover follow below.

"Goatess is also noteworthy for the presence of Swedish cult doom metal vocalist Chritus Linderson (Saint Vitus, Terra Firma, Count Raven), who has, after a few years off the grid, experienced a strong return to form in the new millennium. Best known nowadays for belting out classic doom metal at the helm of Lord Vicar, he has also been nurturing a more homegrown project which began under the working title Weekend Beast and then developed into Goatess.

"The Goatess concept was born from Linderson's desire to create music that is based on atmosphere and the worship of the heavy riff, as opposed to the strictly structured doom metal of Lord Vicar."

"It is basically the kind of music we would like the most to listen to ourselves," says Linderson. "Our sound is constantly under investigation, an ongoing process. What's there so far comes naturally when jamming at rehearsals, and we'll just go with it until we are content."
