Goya – 777


Goya – 777
Opoponax Records/Self released – 2013
Rock, Stoner, Doom, Sludge, Metal
Rated: ****
 
The American trio Goya released their first demo at the end of 2012 and finished putting together their full-sized debut in December of last year entitled: 777.  It’s an almost hour long onslaught of massive riffs and hammering drums. And on some moments the brutish guitar seems to get out of control; and that’s what we want to hear. Too bad the sound gets a bit reigned in again. But then the slow gallop starts and you’re immediately transported to an age where that heavy evil sound was first explored. On some moments it feels like a lost recording of Sleep or Black Sabbath turned up. Also in part due to the amazing vocals that even sound like Ozzy on occasion and that small bluesy twinge reeking of something occult. But it’s that heavy doom and sludgy hard rock that gives us that furious malevolent boost. 777, it’s the new number of the beast!
