The Apocalyptic Triumphator fits perfectly next the band’s previous material. Frankly, they haven’t done anything differently than before, but perhaps that’s why it works so well. Alongside Beherit, Blasphemy and Black Witchery, Archgoat helped to craft that caustic combination of black and death metal that many often refer to as “war metal” or some similar nonsense. There is no reason that fans of any bands mentioned in this review should not go find this now. Paraphrasing the band; the black crusade continues against the religion of the weak. The Apocalyptic Triumphator shows why Archgoat gets the respect in the scene that they do; primal, savage and black as pitch. By doing what they’ve always done Archgoat has struck blackened gold once again.
