Birthed in the year 2010, Blackwolfgoat is here now in this world and is very real. Yes, the legends and stories of Blackwolfgoat are all true, and then some. Guitarist Darryl Shepard, one-time member of bands such as Hackman, Roadsaw and Milligram, decided to go it alone for his latest endeavor, choosing to create loops and drones which could then be added to and layered upon to build songs out of the simplest of material. With just one guitar and one amplifier, Shepard has crafted musical pieces which take the listener to some dark places, and some lighter ones as well.

BLACKWOLFGOAT is the solo drone/ambient project from ex-HACKMAN/MILLIGRAM guitarist Darryl Shepard. `Dragonwizardsleeve` was the debut album released last year, if I`m not mistaken. `DRONOLITH` follows closely in the footsteps of BLACKWOLFGOAT`s first album. Limited to just 350 hand-numbered gatefold-sleeve copies, if you want a copy I`d suggest jumping on it a.s.a.p. With a 46-minute run time you will discover how quickly this album comes and goes. Shepard continues to improve upon his product. Progressive is the name of the game as his music creates a shifting landscape of fuzzed out guitars/ambient noise. His creative use of atmosphere is most striking of all. The album creates the impression that this was an act of improvised music. It`s as if Shepard just sat down and let his mind carry his music wherever it would go. Consider this album to be the art of experimentation at it`s highest peak. Simply gorgeous!
