GOATMOON's classic second album, Finnish Steel Storm, back on CD format again and as a gold disc. Originally released in 2007, Finnish Steel Storm is the album where GOATMOON truly came into its own and solidified a unique sound now revered far and wide. Here, monomaniacal mainman BlackGoat Gravedesecrator sharpened his previously punkish attack into gleaming black metal - ever distinctly Finnish, but now with a refinement that truly exuded the triumph 'n' tragedy at the heart of his aesthetic. And while he'd continue that refinement over subsequent albums, it was in this crucial year and on this crucial album where GOATMOON became one of Finland's most lethal (and most infamous) black metal bands.
This should appeal to fans of folk metal, black metal, punky black metal, people who want memorable riffs, people who love a wide variety of instruments in black metal, people who want to try something different. Bottom line, just get this. - Metal Archives5/5
