Ships In 7-9 Business Days
Released on CD by Aurora Borealis back in 2010, the label present Black Mountain Transmitter's Black Goat Of The Woods on transparent smoke vinyl. An ode to the Lovecraftian lore of Shub Niggurath, Black Goat Of The Woods was conceived as "the soundtrack from some lost low budget horror movie, rediscovered on an old and faded VHS cassette found moldering in a deserted house in the depths of the woods". The one-man project of J.R. Moore, Black Mountain Transmitter has released several albums, all to great critical acclaim, and the quality of his work speaks volumes. The original Black Goat Of The Woods CD version was the first official release, and a reissue of the long sold-out and much sought after limited CD. On describing the recording, Moore said: "The music was certainly very much influenced by that certain breed of '70s horror films. Things like the soundtrack to the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), Giuliano Sorgini's atmospheres in Living Dead At The Manchester Morgue (1974); Carl Zittrer's soundscapes in Deranged(1974), Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things (1972), and Dead Of Night (1974), and of course people like Fabio Frizzi in Italian horror and the BBCs Radiophonic Workshop's electronic sounds in something like The Stone Tape and countless creepy old TV productions..." An excellent, macabre and psychedelic release that spans electronica, soundtracks, and experimental genres in its 40-minute playing time, Black Goat Of The Woods pays perfect homage to the dark denizen of the nocturnal glades, and is a true paean to backwoods horror. Mastered for vinyl by James Plotkin; Cut at The Carvery, London. 140 gram, transparent smoke vinyl; reverse board heavyweight sleeve; Includes download code and printed insert; Edition of 300.
