goliath bird eater

goliath bird eater - black pentagon (ruralfaune 2008)

"New directions in spectral doom from Mr Bobb Bruno with help from Pocahaunted. Goliath Bird Eater are endlessly reverbed vox smeared into washes of tone while single chord doom/fuzz jams move from wasted refusals of any notion of forward momentum through to psychoactive repeat-minimalism. Edition of 77 copies with a whole bunch of alternative covers included." volcanic tongue

"Goliath Bird Eater...In simple terms, “Pentagon Black” is a trio of dense, metal-inspired drone pieces. But there’s more to it than that: The assistance from Rafe Mandel (The For Carnation) and the Pocahaunted girls on “Loop of Pine”, the mid-song silence breaks in “Shiranui”, and the title track, which could be an alternate soundtrack for the intro of Holy Mountain. All of these elements make “Pentagon Black” transcend all things drone and metal. As a matter of fact, I take the first sentence of this paragraph back. This record comprises a trio of complex sonic rituals bearing subtle hints of doom, drone, metal, Slint, Jodorowsky and you fuckin’ name it! It’s a damn great record, and it’s got some of the slickest cover art ever to grace a cd-r! Highly recommended!!! 9/10" foxy digitalis
