Goat Semen – Ego Svm Satana LP
At long last, one of the most highly anticipated debut albums ever arrives: GOAT SEMEN’s Ego Sum Sathana. At ground zero of the rebirth and resurgence of South American black/death at the dawn of the new millennium, these Peruvian devils delivered one of the most classic demos ever with their self-titled 2002 demo, which has seen countless re-editions in the past decade as well as the band’s legendary grow to enviable levels. But alas, a debut album has eluded the band, and the fervor ‘n’ anticipation for one have reached critical mass in the metal underground. Taking on almost mythical status (not unlike Sadistic Intent’s long-promised debut LP), GOAT SEMEN’s Ego Sum Sathana has been in the making for literally a decade. Granted, the band’s been keeping busy in the underground since the 2002 demo, releasing a handful of splits with the likes of Nazxul, Krieg, Levifer, and Japan’s Sabbat, among others, as well as two highly coveted live albums – but each step of the way, it’s only been a few songs teasingly released a time.
