Master of Alchemy 777 really hits its stride from track 3 onward, making it very difficult to choose a favourite. Yes, the music and vocal delivery are heavily influenced by Electric Wizard, but this is no bad thing given that EW are the undisputed Lords of Doom. Still, Goya are a distinct entity, carving out their own style, and this is pretty damn good for a debut album. The stoned and spaced guitars are amazing. Also, I wish that my past lovers had been as filthy as some of the bass tones on this recording!! Favorite track: Death's Approaching Lullaby.

swisspers Finally got this vinyl with stickers and download. Goya’s sound and lyrics are my cup of tea. Favorite track: Night Creeps.

twin_obscenity These fellas know what it is to be doomed and stoned. So, obviously they make such euphoric sounds for those of us that walk the same path. Superb Favorite track: Death's Approaching Lullaby.

buried deep within the key of solomon the king a bloody conjuration came unto me in the days and hours of saturn it's screaming in my head the voice distorted through the haze yet i still recall every word that it said it said the highest council has filled this bong with water from the river styx we've packed this bowl with weed from distant galaxies come forth my child take this hit from the waters down below bubbles up the wrathful smoke demonic laughs begin to rise as i exhale and realize the stars are passing by in the blink of a bloodshot eye the horror of the unknown has settled in there's no return from this trip the highest council has filled this bong with water from the river styx we've packed this bowl with weed from distant galaxies come forth my child it's your hit it's your hit (x4)

in earth thousands of years old lie hidden stories that should not be told corpses protected by ancient seals with this sigil i thee reveal necromancy (x3) a change is in the wind the scent of decay from rotted mother earth sulfuric acid rain in the graveyard i make my bed to hell with the living i am at home amongst the dead i am your savior for that which kills you sets you free they're crawling through the cracks again coming to kill me i am your savior and that which kills you makes me stronger i feel them closing in but that which kills me will only set me free

forever dead forever stoned i've been waiting alone i watch as night creeps i come to you in your sleep i've got no soul and i hunt alone forever dead forever stoned i'm preying alone i watch as you die i steal the life that once twinkled in your eye i've got no soul and i hunt alone forever dead forever stoned i'm decaying alone i brood as night creeps i come for you in your sleep

i awake in my grave there's nothing there to be saved i awake the undead praying to satan hear what i said oh fire infernal now's the time to rise i give you on this night all that is mine i sing death's approaching lullaby my body's here to smite the divine take this dagger from my hands this altar sacrifice is yours to make with virgin's blood our rite begins all that is holy we will forsake oh fire infernal now's the time to rise i give you on this night all that is mine i sing death's approaching lullaby my body's here to smite the divine mistress of evil my blood is yours drink me in deeper sustain this curse my mistress of evil you sate my need my veins are open come now to feed i awake in my grave there's nothing there to be saved i awake the undead praying to satan hear what i said oh fire infernal now's the time to rise i give you on this night all that is mine i sing death's approaching lullaby my body's here to smite the divine

poisoned skies dark masquerade the universe wails beauty dies life is obsolete as on earth so in hell altars of stone to sacrifice you on the air is cold the day has gone under the moon i'll drag you to my tomb the feast of blood begins by the devil's name i'll leave here as i came i died for my own sins so fuck your god swallow your faith a new aeon the whore of babylon she rides before me her sword is drawn blackfire (x4) by the light of moon i'll drag you to my tomb there the feast of blood begins by the devil's name i'll leave here as i came i died for my own sins altars of stone to sacrifice you on the air is dead the night has come the night has come

about

"If Goya succeeded in reminding us that all living things eventually fade, die and decay, then they have done so by creating something immortal. ‘777’ may or may not go down as a doom classic, but to call it the most hate-friendly collection of festering riffs since ‘Dopethrone’ may not be too great a stretch..."

"...777 is a gigantic buldozer of riffs. Nothing much has changed since Goya’s debut demo release. Well apart from the band have upped the volume of their music to huge levels. First track – Rites Of Hashage – is an actioned packed 9 minute blast of head-banging riffs for you to check out. Fans of Sabbath, Electric Wizard and Sleep will rejoice as they may have a new favourite band to follow. Top notch vocals and riffs combine to make this a brilliant track to open the album with..."

"...Goya have managed to craft a victorious debut that manages to pay tribute to its founding fathers as much as it manages to stand on its own feet. Influenced but not overly informed by their forebears and aided by a pounding live sound, ‘777’ will make a great addition to any household that celebrates the Iommic. Will they continue on this path of well-written songs or will they focus on jamming and walls of sound next? One thing’s for sure: this is marijuana doom the way it was meant to be made. Doomed from womb to tomb, this reviewer is aching to hear the next effort."

"...‘777’ is instantly a gratifying listen, particularly for those who like their riffs overblown and grimy. “Night Creeps”, one of the strongest tracks of the album and a carryover from the demo, is a fine example of the band’s ability to create or potentiate euphoria through the repetition of fuzzed-out riffs and interstellar guitar leads..."

"… vocalist Jeff Owens is rather reminiscent of a young Ozzy, and there’s plenty of guitar complexity here. It’s orchestrated into intelligently structured compositions that make the whole album eminently listenable. 4.0"
ametalstateofmind.com/2013/12/23/album-review-goya-777/


"...On some moments it feels like a lost recording of Sleep or Black Sabbath turned up. Also in part due to the amazing vocals that even sound like Ozzy on occasion and that small bluesy twinge reeking of something occult. But it’s that heavy doom and sludgy hard rock that gives us that furious malevolent boost. 777, it’s the new number of the beast!..."

"...This is not just a collection of songs pasted together. It seems to my uneducated ears that thought has been put into making an actual album. If this had been released in the mid-70s it would be described as genre defining. It’s that good..."

"...Land "Rites of Hashing" after "The Chosen Few" from EW's 2007 release and the listener would be forgiven for expecting "Tourquemada '71" was up next. "Death's Approaching Lullaby" is the best song EW never wrote.^^ All of which is to say that Goya's 777 is frightfully exceptional stoner metal that dooms to the masters, that dares to out-wizard the Wizard..."
