Look, I don't know what the music sounds like yet, but that's easily the greatest album cover of the century. The conversely awfully named Goblin Cock is the pseudonym of soft Pinback feelings guy Rob Crow. He likes to make heavy metal sometimes, going after a different kind of catharsis with maximum \m/. You may well ask: does Necronomidonkeykongimicon rock or does it rock? It will probably rock and rock, as Crow goes after the cheesiest and most classic metals a la Ozzy and all that.

7/10 Laurie 31 August 2016

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Goblin Cock, led by the right honourable Lord Phallus, on guitar and vocals. Please, give him a round of applause for his two awards on tonight’s show: worst band name 2016 and erectile fixation runner up 2017. So, Phallus, how do you feel to hold such esteem?

I don’t wanna know. I can’t even pronounce the album title. Did I just hear the line ‘peas come with gravy’? This band is ridiculous, but chances are Rob Crow from Pinback already knows that, and wants to take Orange Goblin’s sound and image just that one step further down towards the crotchal region for the lolz or something. It’s so on the edge of pastiche it’s confusing, but actually pretty enjoyable. It’s sort of slowish classic metal with sludgey/stoner riffs edging in on those low, low strings. The rather soaring choruses play heavily on Seattle-y vocal harmonies in his Ozzy-ish vocal tones; rock out, man. As a whole, the album’s short and sweet, with 13 tracks spread over 36 minutes, but this means each slab of the heavy isn’t laboured. In fact it’s hard to even clock when the tracks change.

If you’re into Black Sabbath, Electric Wizard, the Melvins or ever wished that there was a Karnivool that was more committed to the rawk, then this is your jam. The riffs are strong, the riffs are many, and the riffs are pure. Not such a fan of the vocals over here but then again I can only listen to old Mastodon with Troy Sanders’ destructive bellows before the others butted in with their bloody throats.
