about

“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability.”
― H.P. Lovecraft

Unholy Rituals EP - Mad God/Goat Throne Split Johannesburg, South Africa

JHB doom/stoner metals bands Goat Throne and Mad God formed in mid/late 2014 out of the underbelly of the JHB metal/rock scene. Playing and organizing the Temple of Doom events gave them the idea of doing a split release. DIY recordings are finally here for you to enjoy. ... more

Track Name: Goat Throne - 01 - Apocalyptic Haze (Holiday in Gaza)
This is the end of days, an apocalyptic \ cataclysmic haze
In a rain of fire we are done,
1000 souls calling out as one

Death from above, a sea of corpses down below.

Religious rage, a backstabbing, money making maze.
In a hail of bullets we are done.
The price for freedom, is paid for in blood.

Death from above, a sea of corpses down below.

Bombs fall from the sky, singing death's sweet lullaby

Death from above, a sea of corpses down below.
Track Name: Goat Throne - 02 - She Devil
Beer, whiskey and cheap cocaine...
I'm hell bound on a one way train.
The devil whispers and she calls my name, straight to hell with a chaser of pain...

Her long blonde hair and green-blue eyes, her subtle grin and how she lured me in... I welcomed in the queen of sin, but what do you do? What do you do, when the devil comes calling?

Beer, whiskey and amphetamines... My body is pumped with adrenaline.
The devil comes and she takes my hand, straight to hell for a one night stand.

Her long blonde hair and green-blue eyes, her subtle touch and how she keeps me alive...
I welcomed in, the queen of sin
But what do you do, what do you do when the devil comes calling?

When the devil comes calling.

Well, the devil came calling now...

And now the devil's got me, woah
And now the devils got me....

And now the devil's got me, woah
And now the devils got me...

And now the devils got me good.
Track Name: Goat Throne - 03 - Unholy Trinity
The three things that lead to pain, old Lucifer has begun his reign.

The first is liquor, it leaves you low.
Leaves you empty, with nowhere left to go.

They're Satan's finest it's easy to see... They'll lure you out, but down you in misery.
They make you want them, you'll beg them for more. They'll leave you broken and dying on the floor.

Unholy trinity

The second is money, it costs you your life. Chained in shackles, forever in this strife. The rich they lead, the poor they die. A certain freedom, a price you cannot buy.

The third is woman, they must be from hell. They'll take your money and make you drink as well. They drain your life, they bleed your soul. They'll leave you empty, a death-black hole.

Unholy trinity.

Satan's finest

Unholy

Track Name: Mad God - 01 - Skyflung Monoliths (Unfortunately I Forgot To Bring A Sword)
You Bastards, Why Are You Torturing Me Like This? Why???
Track Name: Mad God - 02 - Rituals In The Dead of Night
I can not describe the horror
That lurks beneath the waves
Dead ones wait in deepest sleep
Their servants wait for their return

I can not describe the feeling
of madness that stirs within my soul
Beyond the stars, the old ones dwell
When they come they will end/enslave us all.

Rituals in the Dead of Night
Summoning dark powers
Rituals in the Dead of Night
Alright!

I can not describe the fear
My visions have imparted unto me
I see the world drowned in great fire
Millions burn and die in flames

Rituals in the Dead of Night
Summoning dark powers
Rituals in the Dead of Night
Soon all will drown in despair and madness

The Twisted Shapes that haunts my visions
Dare me to end it all.
Ancient beings not from this world
Haunt my every dreams

The darkest lord calls unto me
He beckons me to join
He promises me everlasting life
and the chance the travels the stars

Cthulu Rylei!
Track Name: Mad God - 03 - Summoning The Mad God
A blackness rises from the ground
Turning all the seas to tar
As rotten corpses rise
To wreak a wave of terror

Summoning the Mad God

Words uttered without a sound
Words steeped in ancient vows
Words born in darkness

Malevolent forces go to work

Wretched preachers utter tortured prayers
Draining life from the Earth
Draining light from the Sun
The Mad God's work is done
