After critically acclaimed debut album, miniLP, demo and splits, The Dead Goats strike back with another piece! “Don’t go in the tomb” consists of three new compositions in the vein of old-school Swedish death metal – a style so characteristic for The Dead Goats. Once again they confirm being the spiritual successors of Nihilist, Grave and Entombed. Produced by Satanic Audio (Thaw, Eerie). The CD will be released in digipack (16 pages of booklet in a poster form). Cover and layout by Szymon Siech.
The idea behind the The Dead Goats was born during the last european tour of grindcore monster Neuropathia in July of 2010, when the perspective of band’s hiatus became imminent but the notion of abandoning the 90’s Stockholm sound was out of the question. Hence, the bassist Marcin Jaworski, the drummer Radosław Pierściński and the guitarist Paweł Bartulewicz met again towards the end of that year to seize the idea and forge it into a monster, so at the beginning of the year 2011 the band officially came to be. Few months of not-so-extensive rehearsals brought the material which would later be known as “Path of the Goat” which received much critical acclaim, gathering almost exclusively postitive reviews in Polish press as well as international one. The album was featured at some of the summaries of best records of the year, and Terrorizer Magazine called it “some of the most compelling and headbangable Swedeath since the term Swedeath became a viable word” while awarding the album a highest possible score. The ever-growing passion of preaching the swedish way made 2013-2015 quite busy years, with The Dead Goats collaborating with various bands and labels, which gave birth to 12” EP “Children Of The Fungus”, cdr demo “Ferox”, 7” split EP with Revel In Flesh, 12” split LP with Icon Of Evil and upcoming mCD “Don’t Go in the Tomb” released by Arachnophobia Records.
