Goya – Demo

Goya – Demo
Self released – 2012
Rock, Metal, Doom, Stoner
Rated: ****

Goya is a powertrio hailing from Phoenix, Arizona who started playing together somewhere around April and released their first demo this September. Their doom metal approach with stoner and sludge influences is directly reminiscent of the early masters. Think Electric Wizard, Black Sabbath, Sleep and on certain moments Monster Magnet or even Kyuss. Their slow and muddy parts are intensely packed with atmosphere and when they add a little gas the sound naturally transfers into something haunting and eerie. They’re highly dynamic and while the laggard rhythms trod ever forward the guitar wails like a creepy apparition. The entire demo flows like lava and is volatile as quicksilver. Thanks to the gritty production it also has an amazing air of authentic and forbidden qualities about it. Making Goya a definite promise for the near future. Absolutely world class and simply irresistible!
