The hoary cult roars on with unfeigned Afro-rhythms, tribalistic glam stomps and enough wah-wah pedal action to last a millennium. The funky Swedish shamans gleefully accepted their invitation to the gods annual feast at the Round Table Of Funk, which is how they explain the incessant beat of Under No Nation.

Oh Death opens fittingly with Soon You Die, a sodden fuzzed out guitar screeched call to “go party”, with the other dancing skeletons no doubt. Goat are ploughing their own mystifying masque, and always have done to the disbelief of a more mainstream audience, and for that they should be rightly credited for no-one can doubt the Goat lest they be sacrificed to the horned deity.
