Goatwhore’s Sammy Duet is Not a Fan of the Current Occult Metal Trend


Sammy Duet - Goatwhore

According to Lambgoat Goatwhore are heading into the studio in January to record a new album. Huzzah! But that’s not all. Guitarist Sammy Duet had some enlightening words to share via Goatwhore’s Facebook page on what the new album may sound like and what it will not sound like:

I will say this, it isn’t gonna be a light rock record and that seems to be the trend “haunting” the scene as of late, do or die, dont be a pussy, its never to late to live your life, negative vibes to the general public.

That reads like a direct shot at the current trend of “occult” metal bands, or whatever you want to call it, amirite? At MetalSucks we admittedly love to overanalyze EVERYTHING, but not much analyzation is really necessary here. Goatwhore’s new record will be loud and dark and angry and it will be awesome. No gimmicks needed. Duet is not mincing words at all.

I love this guy.

Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this post claimed that Sammy Duet was calling out the band Ghost specifically with his comment. Representatives for Goatwhore have contacted MetalSucks to say that Sammy has no issue with Ghost, but rather was commenting on the current “occult metal” trend in general. This post has been updated to reflect that clarification.
