UPDATED MAY '04
The "Sewn Together...Torn Apart" demo!!!
Well after quite a "creative jouney" this f*ckin' thing is finally done and sounding HEAVY AS HELL!!! It is in the vein of the dirge styling of Sabbath and Priest meets a possessed grizzly bear ripping apart a nursery. With enough "evil" ambiance to make you keep your lights on at night. This is very scary shit!!!! It contains five songs. "Flesh for Fantasy" - deals with americas obsession with lust, "Sewn Together...Torn Apart" - this number will take you straight to f*ckin hell!, "Force Fed" - too sick to go into , "Goblin" - a "Hobbit-esque" tale from a dark ages take on the balance between good and evil, light and dark...plus we figured we needed a self-titled song to truely be "METAL", hehe. Have no doubts...if we get any more metal, we'd rust. Also, we threw a vintage CRUE number on the end to take you back to "the days of the MetalGods." Grind On!!!

Our fellow UG Heads, this website was designed to keep you up to date with GOBLIN happenings and releases
By late fall ('02) we are hoping to record our first full-length CD entitled "Born to Darkness." This release will contain 8 to 10 new Goblin tracks. And to say that this will be a "Heavy" record would be an understatement. It's going to be one of the heaviest slabs to hit the underground in years, I guarantee it! The title of the first song says it all, "MegaTon." They may have to invent a new format to hold the weight of this release. But, anyway, I know talk is cheap, so we look forward to trying to get this record out by the end of fall, at latest. We have written quite abit of material since our inception in the summer of '97, and have a solid body of material compiled. So we are hoping to get it out as soon as we can without comprimising our musical integrity. OUR GOAL...TO MAKE THE HEAVIEST SHIT WE CAN!!!
GOBLIN HAS BEEN HIATUS SINCE '02. I (SAM BILES) PERSONALLY HOPE WE ARE ABLE TO SOMEDAY GET THE BULLDOZER UP AND RUNNING AGAIN. I'LL KEEP YOU POSTED...
HISTORY OF HORROR
HIDEOUS MANGLEUS (NEW - FOR A LIMITED TIME HIDEOUS HAS LONGSLEEVE T-SHIRTS AVAILABLE!!! E-MAIL FOR MORE INFO)
Goblin was born in the summer of '97. When I (Sam Biles) and my good friend, and very talented guitarist Gary Zywicki started getting together and working on songs for a possible "pretend live" album/demo for fun. My other band "Hideous Mangleus"had recently finished up our first full length CD in our, at that time, 8 yr. history in the underground. It was time for a break. (Which will soon be silenced, but that is another story. Info at www.repulserecords.com ). So the opportunity was there, and we took it. After abandoning our "pretend live" cover song idea, hehe, because our originals were sounding very promising. We kinda just wrote a bunch of parts. And slowly but surely started piecing together songs. We didn't really have any "project"/demo/CD in mind. We just wrote for the love of writing. FOR THE LOVE OF METAL!!! Although, our music isn't exactly "Metal". Our heart is every bit as metal as Accept's ever was. We've takin' our childhood/adult passion for heavy music (Sabbath, Priest, Maiden, Frost, Stench, etc, etc) and decided to try our hand at writing the best "Metal" we can. Our sound may be a bit "abrasive" to "the Metal purist" due to our low tuning, and "Yeti with his nuts in a bear trap" vokills. But, O'well, this is an Underground band, what can we say. We've taken the heaviness of songs of Old, like "God of Thunder." And combined it with the unbridled fury of underground music (DeathMetal, Grind, Grust, Doom, etc) like so many others before us. But, we assure you this is not just another UnderGround band. "Killing is our Business...and Business is Good." We are here to make the heaviest shit you've ever heard! That is our commitment to you the UG fan!!! The demo is out, that is the first step in what we hope will be a force to be reckoned with in the underground.
