Episode #36: A Night With Satan, the Head Usurper
El Goro and SonOfOdin look at new Peruvian black metal with Goat Semen and German symphonic metal with Orden Ogan. Texas indie act Brutalody attempt to impress with their multi-genre EP, and the Valhalla also gets the German syphonic treatment with Blind Guardian’s seventh album.
Goat Semen : Ego Svm Satana (2015)
Over a decade in the making, Peru’s Goat Semen released their initial demo back in 2002, but life, line-up changes, and South American economics kept pushing the release back. 2015, however, finally sees the release and Goat Semen are ready to unleash their blackened vitriol on the world.
