Goat of Mendes
Over the past 20 years, GOM released five albums and one demo, which were highly acclaimed in the international underground scene by fans, the Wiccan / Pagan community and press alike.
Untouched by any current trends, GOM always delivered their own unique style of Heavy Metal. Influenced by all styles of true Heavy Metal, be it classic HM, Thrash, Black, Death or Doom, razor sharp guitar play and the archetypical highly variable vocal delivery, GOM successfully created their own niche within the vast and crowded Metal scene.
With the current line-up, gathered around founding members Surtur and Marco, GOM have enriched their already unique style by integrating even more elements of crunching, yet melodic twin guitar work, thunderous drumming, awesome leads and variable, charismatic vocals.
Even though the bands concept is deeply rooted within Paganism and Witchcraft, due to the personal philosophical background of main lyricist Surtur, the style, sound and lyrical message of GOM differs remarkably from what is now broadly known as „Pagan Metal“. GOM is pure, fucking Metal with Wiccan lyrics – Wiccan Metal – nothing else, nothing less.
