Formed in 2009 in Portland, Oregon, the war metal masters WEREGOAT followed in the footsteps of other war metal pioneers such as Teitanblood, Blasphemy, Archgoat and Beherit. In accord with their influences, the bestial black metal band WEREGOAT continued the depravation by releasing two EPs in 2011 and 2013 with a split with Diocletian appearing in between. Finally in 2017 they release their first full-length release PESTILENTIAL RITES OF INFERNAL FORNICATION and prove that they have what it takes to summon the attention of the darkened gutter world with a extraordinarily strong bestial debut release. Very much in the vein of Blasphemy or any of the aforementioned bands WEREGOAT practice a darkened ritual of heavy aggressive and fast downtuned power chords, grindcore bursts of frenetic energy and traces of death metal never too far behind. While the chords have that staunch black metal wall of sound buzz saw effect, the riffs have more of a death metal edge to them as do the growled lower register vocals that don’t have that famous black metal shrieked rasp.

PESTILENTIAL RITES OF INFERNAL FORNICATION is an wickedly perverse venture into the world of musical degeneracy with relentless musical fortitude forging new ways into every taboo subject possible. The album cover pretty much sums up what you’ll experience on this one and the music does feel like a horror film to a forced spawning session of Satan while the dark priests gaze in admiration of their master as he violently gestates his bloodline in the most unthinkable ways possible. Musically this has a very strong relation to early second wave black metal with some of the more energetic bands like Gorgoroth and Marduk coming to mind but delivered with a hybridization of that early death metal sound that Morbid Angel was known for with those pummeling heavily distorted riffs and the sudden unexpected squealing guitar solos. There are even some nice guitar tricks that make the squeals sound like a horse in the midst of an infernal battle as the war frenzy commences.

Vile and repugnant as fuck, WEREGOAT prove that there is a fiercely staunch underground splinter of the black metal world that refuses to add symphonic elements, cute cuddly melodies or even one tiny element of compromise. While many a war metal band can sound pretty monotonous after experiencing a 38 minute time run, WEREGOAT find ways to deliver dynamic shifts despite the unrelenting brutality and hellish overtones blasted out in every note. Even the slower parts are pure evil and exude the whiff of sacrificial blood and semen stained corpses. I find this debut by WEREGOAT to be an excellent example of taking all the most extreme elements of both the black and death metal universes and fusing them together like a Satanic centaur roaming the caverns of Hades. The album titles say it all. You will truly feel “Molested By Evil” as you observe how the “Forked Tongue Lashes Between The Virgin’s Thighs”. This album will keep you “Under The Whip” as “Malediction Command” evokes the “Goatlust Invocation” until one can’t cease from “Screaming Forth Endless Blasphemies and Emitting Foul Seed upon the Pitiful Face of Benevolence.”

After the battering that Ritual Necromancy provided last year with their debut full length release Oath of the Abyss, drummer Nocturnal Hellfucker returns on bass and vocals on yet another savage black/death metal band Weregoat through the release of the band's debut EP, Unholy Exaltation of Fullmoon Perversity. With goats, moon and a name as such, this certainly promises to be one hell of a journey ahead.

The darkness that befalls the listener begins right from the very beginning of Nuclear Cunt, with the sounds of the impending doom that eventually gives way to crushing guitar riffs and the insane distortion/feedback helping to reinforce the already barbaric/savage atmosphere that the band has forged with that filthy production quality. Nocturnal Hellfucker's vocals are monstrous and sound extremely huge, not unlike those of similar bands such as his other band, Ritual Necromancy, threatening to devour all in the band's path. The usage of echoes also make it sound almost as if they were recorded in a cave, helping to give the music on Unholy Exaltation of Fullmoon Perversity an extremely primitive feel.

Music-wise, the band leans close to bands such as Nocturnal Blood, though there is definitely a rawer edge to Weregoat's music and the production quality on here helps to bring out and accentuate the aggression and destructive potential of the band's music. The lead guitar lines of Indiscriminate Impregnator almost have no sense of melody or coherence to them and the drumming of Sadoseducer are bestial as fuck, but this is precisely the point of Weregoat, helping to further smear the scene with even more chaos than there already is, putting out any glimmer of hope that one may have. There are even times when the lead guitar lines such as the pick scratch and the song progression on Abysmal Whore remind listeners of the style of war metal horde Revenge, and this is definitely pleasing to the ears of those who are fans of brutal black/death metal. The black metal element in the band's music seeps out on tracks like Antichrist Kommand, where the underlying riffs are undeniably black metal, perhaps giving some sense of sanity to the continuous 18 minutes of onslaught thus far.

Those unaccustomed to music like those on Unholy Exaltation of Fullmoon Perversity would perhaps dismiss this as yet another of those primitive and untalented bands' failed attempt to be brutal, but for the more knowing fans of the aforementioned bands like Nocturnal Blood and Ritual Necromancy, this is perhaps one of the best representations of raw, filthy and bestial black/death metal yet.

Weregoat is a death metal trio featuring members of Ritual Necromancy, Aldebaran, Engorged, Lord Gore, and many other revered underground extreme metal acts from the Portland area. The lineup consisting of Nocturnal Hellfuker (Kevin Schreutelkamp) on vocals and bass, Sadoseducer (Tim Call) on drums, and Indiscriminate Impregnator (Adam Wheeler) on guitar will likely grab the attention of a few underground metal aficionados, but I think the greatest appeal of this band is their downright filthy musical approach. On their debut EP, Unholy Exaltation of Fullmoon Perversity, Weregoat takes absolutely no prisoners with their filthy, sinister onslaughts of old school death metal. While it hardly offers anything in the way of originality, this is a very competent EP that fans of early nineties' death metal should probably pick up.

Although death metal keeps becoming more polished, technical, and sterile as the years progress, Weregoat leaves behind all of the modern aesthetics in favor of a completely old-school sound. The compositions are short and powerful, the riff structure isn't too complex, the drumming hardly veers outside of blast beat territory, and the production is obscure and muddy. This sound may not appeal to everybody, and occasionally I do find the music a bit monotonous, but those who appreciate the grimy atmosphere of early death metal are bound to enjoy Unholy Exaltation of Fullmoon Perversity quite a bit. Weregoat does an exceptionally good job at creating a punishing musical atmosphere, and I do think this is their strongest asset on this EP. The muddy production and obscure vocals sound downright evil at times.

Clocking in at just under 25 minutes, Unholy Exaltation of Fullmoon Perversity is the perfect length for music this dense and cacophonous. Monotony does occasionally set in, but the EP is short enough that I still end up with a positive taste in my mouth when it's over. Overall, Weregoat has offered us a very solid debut offering in the vein of Autopsy, Carnage, and Entombed, and fans of unpolished old school brutality should find a lot to enjoy here. Weregoat has a long way to go in terms of originality, but they do what they do pretty damn well.
