Goatpsalm pummels every atom of the listener with their newest release, Downstream, with moody, ethereally spirit-crushing tunes. It’s as if you’re being marched over by an army of armored skeletons.
Darkly ambient at times, sludgey death metalish at others, Goatpsalm can turn on a dime and include something incredibly moving like the track “White Sea.” Downstream is an interesting mix of approaches and moods that somehow seem to coalesce into a pretty solid piece of work. It’s not necessarily the kind of music you’d listen to in the car, but it’s definitely a great album to put on at home and absorb in it’s entirety.
If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, try Goatpsalm. You might be soul-crushingly pleased with what you hear.
Downstream is out now on Aesthetic Death Records. Buy it here!
