Album Review – Goya “Harvester of Bongloads”

Harvester of Bongloads_Album Cover

Goya

Harvester Of Bongloads

Doom/Sludge Metal – Vinyl / CD / DD

Opoponax Records – Release Date: March 2017

 

Is there such a thing as progression through regression? Aiming more specifically toward music, can an artist move forward by upping their chops yet presenting a listen more primal than ever before? If so, Goya’s upcoming aural assault could serve as a very plausible definition of such.

Jeff Owens and company have always sniffed around the sludge fire hydrant, albeit cautiously. For “Harvester”, any apprehension is long gone, as the band thrusts forward and mark their territory with menacing abandon. Every second of this four song, forty-minute avalanche of sound is a testament to doomy, crawling, distorted, monolithic and awe-inspiring heaviness at its most extreme.  Some may be a bit surprised though too, as Owen’s guitar leads and melody, coupled with soulful, agonized vocals actually make this hit even harder blasting the norms of the genre.

In parting, I’ll just hammer my point in a little bit further – “Harvester Of Bongloads” is a relentless listen meant to touch the listener’s most primordial inclinations. Goya’s best to date and essential to anyone’s collection that likes it HEAVY.

    is wonderful blog. A fantastic read. I will certainly be back.

    You can talk to people on this thread. We are several articles up to read and you can communicate with bands / artist directly in our Band Section. ~MdT

  67. Nice to see this little review I wrote, and the site overall getting so much positive attention. Thanks to all that took the time to drop by and throw down their thoughts.

  68. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking
    forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang
    of it!
