Acclaimed progressive doom-merchants King Goat have announced the details of their long-awaited second LP.

Debt of Aeons will be released on April 20 via Aural Music, with artwork by acclaimed artist Travis Smith (Opeth, Iced Earth, Avenged Sevenfold, Katatonia and many more).

In the band’s own words, “the album is, in many ways, a reflection of the world in which it was conceived; the result of personal mental decline and the resultant pessimistic view of our species. This negativity permeates the record at an atomic level, seeping from between the riffs and spilling like bile from the lyrics themselves. Our sound further expands on the journey that Conduit began, exploring a multitude of paths to do justice to our vision. Debt of Aeons is upon us and we’re proud to release this record.”

The news follows the announcement that King Goat are to support acclaimed Gothic Metal band Paradise Lost. The band have also recently signed to cult label Aural Music and subsequently re-released their acclaimed debut LP Conduit, with their eponymous debut EP on December 08 2017.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
