New Blackwolfgoat album "Drone Maintenance" coming in 2014.


"All kneel before the Dronolith and revel within the splendor of it’s shadow! “BLACKWOLFGOAT is the solo drone/ambient project from ex-HACKMAN / MILLIGRAM guitarist Darryl Shepard,” or so his Bandcamp page says. What Darryl doesn’t want you to know: he’s actually just an enchanted floating guitar played by a pair of enormous spectral hands. These diligent hands pull from a small assortment of riffs that come to know the birth, flourishing ellipse and calming dissolution within their sonic life cycle. Life came from fuzz burns with droning focus. His sounds elicit a certain smiling musical control, as he boasts that “all songs and sounds on this album were recorded live in the studio, no overdubs.” Of course not, the Dronolith breathes and circulates of it’s own volition. Furthermore, the lack of percussion furnishes a certain attention to the enamoring tones. Only one instrument needed for scalding a white hot trance through the listener."

Q: any plans on performing in Germany?
A: I'd like to. I've been trying to get over there for a couple of shows but no luck so far. Hopefully when the new album comes out I can arrange something.
