Tribal Ritual Psychedelic Rock

Swedish band Goat, jumped out of nowhere and into the sprawling scene of neo-psychedelic in 2012, with their debut “world music”, followed by “Commune” in 2014.

The band covers their origins, warring masks in live shows, acting as a loosely connected music community of nameless members, and by a story of them springing from a collective of townspeople in Korpilombolo, located north of the Arctic Circle, a small town of native Sami people, and a few Scandinavian settlers. Creating a tradition of ritual music, in praise of pagan Gods and ancestral worshipping.

The cover story works well with the music, there is a strong sense of tribal pagan ritual coming from their recordings, on a base of stoner/psychedelic rock, with a rarely seen mix with influences from a wider range of styles sounds and rhythm patterns. Goat’s albums are a new interesting breed of psychedelic rock, no matter if you like the mystery or not.
