The 2004 comeback EP from Goatsnake, one of the doom/stoner rock scenes finest, is in my opinion, absoulutely amazing. Ok so Scott Reeder in on the lowend, so I'am bias, even still the three newly recorded songs match anything in the bands back catalogue.

Weighty opener 'Portraits of Pain' starts all slow & gloomy & then shifts two thirds through to something highly reminiscent of QOTSA with vocal chanting & a warm bass pulling things along. 'Black Cat Bone' is a stomper, 3 minutes of uptempo blues with Stahl screaming like a banshee. Classic goatsnake. The final track, 'Juniors Jam' is possibly the best thing on the disk, while it's 8-odd minute running time is partly taken up with stretched harp sounds & animal noises, there is still a good five minutes of tune buried inside. A very drawn out doomy intro is cleverly shifted into an uptempo groove, all revolving around Reeder's base & the obligatory thick Anderson riffage. The chorus is nice & catchy which then bridges into an even more upbeat stomp with some pretty memorable vocals about being lost & found. Or something.

The last two tracks are vintage snake, St.Vitus' 'Lost at Sea' is the perfect choice of cover for the band & pull it off in style. The only slight head scratch is the cover of Black Oak Akansas 'Hot Rod' which begins with a potheads ancidote about being busted by hillbilly cops in 70's southern america. The main track though speeds along at a pleasing pace which a thick snaking bassline for the main riff to work around. Short it maybe, all quality stuff though.

All in all, being my first taste of Goatsnake its impressive stuff. Some may feel a little put off by the short track list, but there are three meaty doom tracks here & some good old bluesy rock. Everything you heard about 'em is true, definetly one of the best.

After two of the best outings into doom/stoner metal in the past decade - 1999's "1" and 2000's "Flower of Disease" - and the powerful EP "Dog Days", Goatsnake returned to good form with the EP "Trampled Under Hoof", albeit slightly short at roughly 30 minutes.

Anderson and Stahl are without doubt a fine pairing, Stahl's distinct vocal delivery adds the infectious bluesy choral lines, and Anderson is well, a monster on the guitar, as anyone who has heard his work with doom legends Sunn O))) will second. And the two are in fine form in the EPs opener Portraits of Pain which fuses a slow brooding opening riff with expert time changes and one of the most sublime closing sections the band has ever created. The adrenaline is at full flight with Stahl crying `like your mother before your sacrifice' and the band pummelling big downtuned riffs, all to be slowed back down to the opening crawling pace. A wonderful showcase of the bands talents.

Black Cat Bone contrasts the slow booming ending with its relatively fast pace and abundant energy. In case anyone doubted Anderson's ability to create superb riffs this song will change that. At just under 3 minutes it is a short and sharp piece and will get your head bobbing. Then things slow down to ultimate doom pace with Junior's Jam. Opening with atmospheric effects, the best riff of the album lurches in and pummels the listener. The song has a similar structure to Portraits of Pain, starting at punishing crawl pace, speeding up and then back to the opening riff for good measure (and also some farmyard animal effects). And in no way does it feel repetitive. A classic Goatsnake song.

The next two tracks are covers, the first is Burial at Sea, a St. Vitus cover. The recording isn't prefect but it doesn't need to be.

this album is absolutely amazing. the guitars are nice & fuzzy & make you feel all warm inside. pete stahl does some of the best vocals i ever heard, really clean & astonishingly well synchronised with the music. stahl's vox is what makes goatsnake so special, usually this kind of HEAVY stoner rock is accompanied by fairly husky vox. nope, not here, they're as smooth as a mountain stream

extra plus, the album has one of the most amazing covers ever made + really, really cool inside artwork, all done by the designer guru steven o'malley... awesome!

I may be shot down for saying this, cos the cast list for this album is highly credible, but ... mah, this pretty much stinks.

The vocalist is weedy, with weak lyrics and a voice that reminds me of Masters of Reality. The riffs are purile. You've heard everything on this album before.

I would avoid it, although the cover in beautiful.

Goatsnake Lives! 13 Aug 2004
By Goaty66 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It took forever but finally, another slice of thick, beautiful doom from a band that deserves high praise. Greg Anderson's brutal axe-work and Pete Stahl's brilliant vocals are joined by Scott Reeder (Unida, Kyuss, The Obsessed) this time out. The two rare cover tracks alone, "Burial at Sea" (Saint Vitus) and "Hot Rod" (Black Oak Arkansas), are worth more than the price of admission. If you're a fan of classic Black Sabbath or quality rock in general, gather up all the Goatsnake you can find!

Pete Stahl sits up there with Mike Patton and Chris Cornell 10 Feb 2005

Yes, this man has quite a voice. I'm surprised hardly anybody has heard of these guys. One of the best drudgy Sabbath offspring. Moves at the pace of a steamroller over your fragile bones. Good old hard rock.

Very Enjoyable EP From a Fine Act 15 Oct 2006

And in no way does it feel repetitive. A classic Goatsnake song.

The next two tracks are covers, the first is Burial at Sea, a St. Vitus cover. The recording isn't prefect but it doesn't need to be. It is an almost perfect adaptation for Stahl and a great tribute to the pioneering classic act. The next cover is Hot Rod originally played by the obscure act Black Oak Arkansas, and is not really up to the standard Goatsnake set themselves, but it is a fun way to end an excellent EP.

Hopefully there will be more in the future from this fine band, these 5 tracks are very good and showcase classic doom metal, but it doesn't quite quench the thirst for more of the Snake.
Greg Anderson is Awesome 11 Jan 2014
By Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Goatsnake is Doom/Stoner Metal band from L.A. California their music is like every typical Doom metal out their but there's is more bone crushing compared to the band like Earth, But their music is much better than Earth is (no offence I like Earth to) but this is way better. It's almost like a grudge version of Sunn O))) if you get what I mean. Yeah if you like Drone/Doom Music you will defiantly like this.

all n all great

Recommend if you like Drone/Doom or Experimental music
