about

"It's a magnificently-assembled album, with the performances ranging from nailed-down to wild abandon in pleasing proportion, strong riffs throughout, and a real mean edge to it all."
www.ridewiththedevil.blogspot.com/2015/07/simply-massive.html?m=1

"'Obelisk' is, in all, a thinking man’s doom metal record; it keeps you on your toes, always remains untamed, delivering uppercuts with complete conviction just when you think you’ve sussed them out."
thesludgelord.blogspot.com/2015/07/goya-obelisk-album-review.html

"Goya‘s second offers evidence of growth undertaken, provides glimpses of what might develop down the line, finds the band reveling in their processes and hits like a hammer made of pills. There is little one might ask of it that it does not deliver."
theobelisk.net/obelisk/2015/07/21/goya-obelisk-review-and-stream/

"You can listen to everything they have ever put out as easy as I can, which gives you the chance to make your own decisions. So this is what I will tell you. GOYA is Godzilla, and you are Tokyo."

"There are albums in every genre that stand out as totems of what can be achieved and whilst doom may have more than its fair share, Obelisk can rightly belong up there with them too."
echoesanddust.com/2015/07/goya-obelisk/

"Goya return with their second full-sized album Obelisk, after the amazing 777 released in 2013, and deliver a body blow of skull crushing heavy grooves and guitars that summon the spirits of Norse gods when played at volume."
stonerhive.blogspot.nl/2015/08/goya-obelisk.html?m=1

"This is one hell of a trip into a well-crafted, surreal soundscape and shouldn’t be overlooked by any fan of the stoner rock/metal genre."
ametalstateofmind.com/2015/08/07/tales-from-bandcamp-obelisk-by-goya/

"Indeed, Goya’s songwriting evolved a lot since the release of 777, in 2013. The biggest and most noticeable differences lie in the variety and the unique sense of wholeness which flows throughout the album."
morefuzz.net/reviews/goya-obelisk/

"Gigantic in sound and thought, Goya unleashes a cavalcade of molten sludge riffs and desert rock psychedelia on to the listener. Beautiful, shimmering guitar leads and solos give way to tough-guy riffing and general doom metal badassery."
instagram.com/p/6TgIOjr_4p/?taken-by=thetruthmetalreviews

"Goya isn’t just some band that plays heavy riffs for the sake of playing heavy riffs. There is a narrative that is part and parcel of every song. Few bands can provide quality on this level, musically and lyrically. Obelisk simply destroys, sonically and philosophically."
doomedandstoned.com/post/126983636813/goya

"Obelisk is easily the band’s most varied release to date, but it also stands as their darkest and grimiest. Goya have channeled a black, twisted psychology with their latest both musically and atmospherically. Obelisk, with its heavy, overblown riffs and feedback strewn soundscapes, is top-tier material that easily stands among the year’s best."

Track Name: Nothin' but Dead Stuff
Step into my ride, don't be afraid
I'll take you through
Let me be your guide as you plead for life
As you cry, as you lie there, doomed
There was another time I might have let you survive
Free as a bird
But my mind is set, and we all get what we deserve

I've come to take you away

Sitting in the dark, just for a lark
I call you up the stairs
You see the demon inside as you look in my eyes
Little girl, now, don't be scared
I've waited for so long, I'm your biggest fan
But it's not what it seems
I am The Werewolf, I am The Boogeyman
I wanna hear you scream

I've come to take you away
I've come to take you away

This isn't personal, but it had to be you
This is an act of Grace
They've come to take me away

FUCK
Track Name: The Devil's Prey
As I lay me down to sleep
With your dead body next to me
If I should die before you wake
I pray The Devil, my soul to take

I pray The Devil will show me the way
I pray The Devil...

The Seven Seas of Blood, I've spilled, just to get to you, dear
The Seven Sisters, I have killed, just to get to you
I've traveled from Beyond the Veil, just to get to you, dear
The Seven Sacraments have failed
I've come for you

I pray The Devil won't change my wicked ways
You better pray to The Devil because there's no God here today

I've been away far too long
And now I'm way too far gone
I sing your requiem, Death's song
You knew I'd find you before long
And when I drag you back to Hell with me
You'll remember everything
And then I'll show you things you've never seen
I've come to conquer you tonight
I've come to torture you
I'm gonna see it through
I'll watch you bleed for me, too
Beneath the light of a full moon

You have eluded me over a century
Your secret safe from the prying eyes of Hell
With all illusions gone, this Danse Macabre must carry on
I'll rip you right out of that shell

I pray The Devil descends on you today
I've become The Devil, and you are The Devil's prey
You are The Devil's prey
You are The Devil's prey
You are The Devil's prey
Track Name: The Star
(instrumental)
Track Name: Obelisk
Burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn, burn
Track Name: 300 Eyes
In the white of your eyes
I see all I despise in myself
And there's just one way through
I will gouge those eyes right out of you
...of you...right out of you

In the white of your eyes
I reveal myself true
Silently, I die
This, too, I'll survive
I will have what's mine, what's left of you
...of you. What's left of you?

I'll lead you by the hand
Show you things they will never understand
Fifty-three, is it? An underestimate!
By my account, I have gouged out three hundred eyes
Three hundred eyes
Three hundred eyes
Three hundred eyes
Three hundred eyes
Track Name: The Sun
The Sun burns out tonight
This is my last rite
We're not so different, but we're not the same
I am The Prowler, and you are the prey

The Sun burns in my eye
This is our last night
There's nothing here for me, there never was before
There's nothing here for evermore

The Sun burns out tonight
This is my last right
Sick of life, I turn to death
I watch you breathe your last breath
Track Name: Beyond Good and Evil
I can't wait to get you alone
I'll follow you all the way home
Little girl, you'll be my first
My impure thoughts will only get worse

These demons in my brain have driven me insane
These demons in my mind...

Evil lives inside every man
I spill my guts, you don't understand
The only thing I love is to kill
I love the blood, I love the thrill

These demons in my brain have driven me insane
These demons in my mind, they stalk the streets at night

The Night Stalker
The Night Stalker

Now that I've found you, and we're alone
I spill your guts inside of your home
Little girl, you were my best
I spilled your blood until your life left

These demons in my brain have driven me insane
These demons in my mind...

Oh, sweet Satan, you own my soul
Lucifer, I give you complete control
If I should live for other days
I pray The Devil to guide my ways
Track Name: Echo from Space
(instrumental)
Track Name: No Place in the Sky
They'll never find me, but I'll find you
My Seven Suns ensnare The Moon
Beneath the surface, way down below
Our Destination looms

I'm not the one to guide you up above
I'm not the one...

Killing is killing, whether done
For duty, for profit, or for fun
If you're looking for mercy, I'm not the one
Your number's up, your time has come

I'm not the one you thought I was
I'm not the one...

When I look up at the stars, I know you see the same ones
It doesn't really matter, nothing really matters
As if it ever did
It never did
When we lay down and die, there is no place in the sky
No place in the sky for us

I am the one they said I was
And I'm Jahbulon

Inked in blood, engraved in stone
Your temple, your altar
Your body, my throne

When I look up at the stars, I know you see the same ones
It doesn't fucking matter, nothing fucking matters
As if it ever did
It never did
We all lay down and die, there is no place in the sky
No place in the sky for us

THERE IS NO PLACE IN THE SKY FOR US
THERE IS NO PLACE IN THE SKY FOR US
