In the sweltering heat of the Inland Empire resides Goshen. A barbarously noisy mathcore quartet, these 103-degree garage metallers construct delirious fever daydreams through complex collisions of ceaselessly abrasive genres. Harsh noise and shrill spasms of guitar feedback encrust these powder keg compositions in incendiary discord. Riffs are in perpetual flux as tempos blast then smolder to a brooding crawl. The sheer intensity of these 13 minutes are only rendered more acute via the deranged wails channeling an unhinged delivery a la Admiral Angry. Goshen's self-titled EP is a disorienting gale of furnace heat, one that is certain to sear your eardrums through its blistering bombardment.
* Note: The cassette version has tracks 3 ("Cave") and 4 ("Man of Gauze") switched so as to even out the run time on both sides.
"At 13 minutes long, (only 5 minutes longer than the demo!) it’s a hell of a ride that threatens to derail any second. This is 103 degree garage Hardcore searing at its finest!"

This album is packed to the brim with content. Every track is a unique journey, and seems to correspondingly reflect different influences. Fans of seminal mathcore bands like Converge, Botch, and Every Time I Die won't wanna miss this. To quote one of our users: "Best $1 ever spent." Christian Segerstrom
Quite possibly the most full-on album I've ever listened to. Intense, and then some. 'Digital Tarpit' could describe both the track and the whole album: high-pitched guitar squeals that make your fillings itch coupled with merciless, suffocating heaviness. The Avenell-esque vocals top it off perfectly.
Brilliant - punishing, but brilliant. jim_fuego
I've never heard so much violence in such a small amount of time. 7 minutes of pure brainfucking with vocals straight out of Hell and insane guitar-work, this release leaves me wanting more and more. I've been binge-listening this for quite some time and I'm glad I stumbled upon this. Alex Jesus
