GOATCRAFT - The Blasphemer CD

Out February/March 2014 via I, Voidhanger Records

The new chapter in Lonegoat's necroclassical/dark ambient quest, "The Blasphemer" is themed around the work of William Blake, the famous English theologian, painter and poet.
More than a simple tribute to the great master of Pre-Romantic and Romantic movements, "The Blasphemer" wants to be a musical probe to reveal and explore the mystical, occult undercurrents in Blake's paintings.

"A bridge between esoteric Art and Music, a way to reconcile the mystical side of GOATCRAFT with its nihilistic side" as Lonegoat himself has explained.

Track list:

01. Intro: Behemoth
02. Temptation And Fall
03. House Of Death
04. The Blasphemer
05. Hecate
06. Nebuchadnezzar
07. In The Arms Of Pity
08. The Great Red Dragon, Part I - The Woman Clothed With The Sun
09. The Great Red Dragon, Part II - The Woman Clothed In The Sun
10. The Great Red Dragon, Part III - The Beast From The Sea
11. The Great Red Dragon, Part IV - The Number Of The Beast
12. Eternal Prayer Of Urizen
13. Satan In His Original Glory
14. Outro: Leviathan

Jewelcase CD, luxurious 32-page booklet with Blake's art, track-by-track commentaries and liner notes.

Listen to track 9, inspired by one of Blake's most famous watercolours from "The Big Red Dragon" series:

Listen to track 3, inspired by another Blake's classic painting illustrating Milton's "Paradise Lost":

A new preview song off GOATCRAFT's sophomore album "The Blasphemer":

https://soundcloud.com/i-voidhanger-records/goatcraft-satan-in-his

The track is called "Satan In His Original Glory" and has been inspired by the William Blake's painting of the same name.

"One must look at ‘Satan In His Original Glory’ and see what Blake wanted to communicate," explains GOATCRAFT sole member Lonegoat. "Blake was against the restrictive nature of Christianity, so he presented nature on par with spiritual energies. In the painting, you will see that the angels of Satan are below him holding musical instruments to create art, as well as books to obtain knowledge. Blake ultimately wanted people to educate themselves so that they would be liberated from religious ignorance."

GOATCRAFT has recently been interviewed by Timothy Bartlett at Zero Tolerance Magazine. You can read the interview here:

"The Blasphemer" is scheduled for a March 3rd release in Europe, but will be available for sale in our store even sooner...

2 new reviews:

METALREVIEWS.COM (91/100 - Album of the Month)

"The Blasphemer is fascinating in its own right as piano music, but it evokes a metal atmosphere with equal seriousness. This manages to fuse classical music with metal with enough adeptness that checking it out is highly recommended."

Full review: http://www.metalreviews.com/reviews/album/8571


MASS MOVEMENT

"Things start off gloomy, setting the mood for our tale but as you work your way through the fourteen tracks you can feel the blossoming of hope and the return of the light; not too much but enough to bring you back from the brink of despair. This is a deeply moving album, written and arranged like classical music."
