Goat Faction are an Experimental Stoner Rock band Perth, Australia. Australia has recently been excelling in providing top-quality Doom/Sludge/Stoner Metal bands over the last few years. However, Goat Faction might be one of the most craziest and weirdest bands I’ve came across from the Aussie Stoner Rock Scene.

As Goat Faction play a different kind of Stoner Rock. As their new song – Nightcrawlers – features elements of Psych, Drone, Stoner, Noise, Prog and even Electronica. It’s quite a trippy and surreal experience that is all held together by a Jam based sound. Goat Faction manage to include some heavy distorted guitar riffs that shows the band may deliver something heavier on their forthcoming EP which they will be releasing later this year.

I wouldn’t call Goat Faction an Avant-Garde band but they maybe classed as “Outsiders” to the Stoner Rock/Metal community. However I feel that Goat Faction have a lot to offer and one of those things is ORIGINALITY. As I can’t compare this band to anyone else at the moment.

OK, Goat Faction. You’ve made me a fan of your crazy, psychedelic and fucked-up sound. I definitely want to hear more. If you’re in the mood for something different in the realm of Stoner Rock. Check out Goat Faction. As I have a small feeling you’ll be hearing a lot more from this band in the near future...
