Thirty-two years after formation, Finnish iconoclasts Archgoat stand monolithic as one of the most nightmarishly singular bands in extreme music. Helmed with preternatural telepathy by twin brothers Ritual Butcherer (guitars/composition) and Lord Angelslayer (bass/vocals), newest emission Worship the Eternal Darkness is a typically depraved set built to mock our contemporary malaise. Continuing on from preceding album The Luciferian Crown the hoof-pressure is slightly alleviated from the throat, the band's patented synthesis of occult Finnish black/death metal, harsh punk, primal thrash and grindcore is tempered here with elements of melodic dynamism: a rhythmic crush less unrelenting, horrorshow vocals slightly more intelligible, a production shorn of murk highlighting potent synth-sorcery and welcome NWOBHM influences, not least guitar solos of old-school finesse. Recorded over wo days in foulest 2021 and clad-as-ever in immortal Chris Moyen artwork, Worship the Eternal Darkness has all the thematic unity, arcane knowledge, otherworldly class and divine filth expected from a legendary band stoking underground hellfires which burn stronger than ever.
