digipack CD with booklet inclusive lyrics, info and impressions
With "III: Shaped by the Unlight" GOATH stick to everything they believe in and that is playing aggressive Death / Black Metal its purest form. Raw, very powerful and evil - and this time even darker than ever! Most of the material was recorded while playing live in the studio, just like on their previous albums. No clicktracks and not thousands of overdubs! This is what makes "III: Shaped by the Unlight" so brutal. The energy that GOATH is spreading here punches the listener directly into the face.
GOATH take you an a journey that leads with heavy speed through the wilderness, straight into the dark and soul devouring swamp of the old school scene, and leave you there just to die alone. The songs are about mankind`s decline and all the absurdities dwelling within every human mind. Some of the lyrics can be taken literally and some conclusions can be found in occult analogy. This strange mixture of "straight into the face" and "what you see is not always what you get" reflects every day´s perception of our so called "reality". The cover artwork was crafted again by Misanthropic Art. Also you will find guest appearances by musicians you could probably know. This sinister piece of art is definitely just for those who are: Shaped by the unlight...
