Goat Major

From Wales, UK Ripple Music

Goat Major from Wales, UK

Hailing from Wales, the land of ancient monuments and Celtic traditions, GOAT MAJOR are an occult doom band formed during the harsh lockdown of a global pandemic by longtime friends Jammie Arnold (guitar), Simon Bonwick (drums) and Tom Shortt (bass/vocals). All three members grew up within half a mile of each other in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, in the shadow of the town’s medieval castle.

The power trio worked hard crafting their sound and composing songs of catchy sinister occult doom metal, all while escaping the brutality that was cast upon the world. As restrictions started to lift, GOAT MAJOR began playing shows as an instrumental band before Shortt decided to take up the vocal duties. The band continued fine-tuning their songs with regular shows around the south/west of Wales and further afield in England. The band consequently started playing higher profile shows around the UK, sharing the stage with the likes of Thunder Horse, Wytch Hazel, Sigiriya, Parish, OHHMS, Made Of Teeth, Inhuman Nature. They also performed at Swansea Fringe festival and headlined Rock the Gwasbah festival in West Wales. GOAT MAJOR recently signed to US reference stoner, doom and heavy rock label Ripple Music for the release of their debut album "Ritual" in the winter of 2024.
