The second demo "Sodomize the Goat" was a much deeper look into the GOATLORD depravity. This demonstration tape contained some over-the-top titles like "Underground Church", and of course "Chicken Dance". GOATLORD began to move into a slower and more convincing mode of Metal. Their live shows were few but mighty and they really brought a seething feel to their live performance.
GOATLORD went on to record only one more demo in 1991 before tensions grew about the way the band should progress. Some of the members wanted to go towards a slower, more droning approach. The debate continued and vocalist Ace Stills ventured off to do his own band called DOOM SNAKE CULT. The next step was inevitable: a recording contract with Turbo Records (Germany; later to license USA versions via JL America); and GOATLORD, with their remaining members, began to work on their first full-length record without Ace. They had hired Mitch Harris (RIGHTEOUS PIGS, NAPALM DEATH) as their replacement vocalist.
The entire album was recorded with Mitch as the vocalist and only a few last-minute adjustments needed to be taken care of before mastering. This is where Ace re-surfaced and asked to rejoin the now-reviled band. The Lords of the Goat conceded and re-united. Unbeknownst to the band, when Ace laid down his tracks, he recorded over Mitch's lead-vocals, and those versions are now lost forever. GOATLORD has made an impression.
What we are left with is one foul studio-album and these demos compiled here in this long-overdue release. Vile and wretched GOATLORD has stained us all and I for one am grateful. I would like to thank Joe Franklin and GOATLORD for making this Metal, and Roman/From Beyond Productions for releasing this compendium.
