Black Metal changed, Archgoat did not…
Archgoat formed in 1989 in Turku, Finland. From the beggining they were openly identify with the Satanism and the Occult.
First demo unleashed in 1991, called “Jesus Spawn”. In 1992 an unholy alliance forged with Necropolis Records and in 1993 the “Angelcunt (Tales Of Desecration)” MLP was released. Later that year Archgoat entered the studio to record a full length release.
However, after a disagreement with terms of the contract for the full length, they refused to release it to the public. Also they decided that they do not belong in a commercial Black Metal scene of those days.
