GOATSNAKE


"Trampled Under Hoof" (Southern Lord; 2004)

Reviewed by Mike SOS

 

A stoner rock supergroup of sorts comprised of members of seminal outfits like Kyuss, Wool, and SUNN0)), Goatsnake returns with three new tracks and two cover tunes to satisfy your sludgy delight.

After a four year hiatus, the Sabbath meets St. Vitus at an Obsessed show vibe is as cranking out loud as ever, giving every purveyor of the hypnotic groove a new CD to wear out in the stereo. Despite the fact that "Trampled Under Hoof" only goes five tracks deep, there are tons of slithering, sinewy rhythms and enough heaviosity to overpower any five major label releases.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
