StumpTail – Goat Rodeo Sacrifice: The Sound of Summer Full Album Premiere


While the black metal elements are obvious, those who pay attention will pick up on nods to the NOLA sludge scene as well as acts such as Down. This merges with Southern rock influences from acts such as The Almond Brothers (mong numerous others) and Southern groove metal acts such as Pantera. All of this is presented in a uniquely Tennessee leaning way with country elements throughout

It isn’t every day that you hear black metal with a groovy Southern twang. So, dig in and enjoy the advanced stream below.

Message from the band:

The band have described the release as,”a truly unruly and mind-melting voyage through the underbelly of Tennessee life. Drawing from sludge and black metal as well as doom/stoner/drone and groove metal -not to mention REAL country music- this album is truly a testimony to the outer limits of imagination and the depths of vision which come together to successfully convey a disturbing portrayal, in sound, of a rather rowdy life in a mythological Tennessee setting.”

Album Credits:

Zac Ormerod (drums, some lyrics)
