Dixie Goat may have a name and sound that would not be out of place in the swamps of Mississippi; but this is a band which originates from Chile and after five years, Dixie Goat are back to deliver their sophomore album ‘There’s No Light Without Darkness’.
What the Chileans offer with ‘There’s No Light…’ is an album which slings low with some foot stomping riffs that reek of stale beer, pot smoke and barbecue. These riffs are true to very core of what it means to play stoner and doom metal from those locked in grooves of Black Sabbath right through to the expansive swagger of Electric Wizard and for a three-piece, these guys make a hell of a racket. Naturally, there isn’t anything here that hasn’t been done before and there is a bit of hero worship going on, but like a well oiled machine, ‘There’s No Light…’ continues to work and clocking in at just over 30 minutes, this is an easy album to palette, getting in and out without ever over-staying its welcome. This means that there is a replayability here, one that isn’t dull or boring having all the appeal of Corrosion of Conformity, Down and even Kyuss.
Dixie Goat have solidified their sound with this album, they know their groove and they know their audience and what they have delivered is a comfortable album that sets their stall out without going beyond its means or through the motions.
