Progressive drone project Blackwolfgoat is the solo vessel of guitarist Darryl Shepard (Black Pyramid, The Scimitar, Hackman, Milligram, Roadsaw) specializing in looped guitar movements, building and layering upon each other to create compositions of dense distortion and delicate lines, as well as purely ambient pieces.
Shepard’s Blackwolfgoat will unleash a brand new full-length entitled “Drone Maintenance” on August 26th via Small Stone. As a precursor to its unveiling, Cvlt Nation is currently streaming second track, “Notausgang.” Give it a listen below.
Comments Shepard: “‘Notausgang’ is a psychedelic guitar freak-out, definitely different from anything Blackwolfgoat has done before. It was inspired by bands like Guru Guru and Ash Ra Tempel, German bands from the late ‘60s and early ‘70s who had lots of crazy guitar stuff going on in their songs. And Jimi Hendrix too, there’s definitely some Hendrix influence in there as well. It’s basically just a straight up guitar freak-out.”
