Goat is the name of more than one artist:
1:Goat are a collective who hail from a small and very remote village called Korpilombolo in deepest darkest Sweden. Legend has it that for centuries, the inhabitants of the village of Korpilombolo were dedicated to the worship and practices of Voodoo.
This strange and seemingly unlikely activity was apparently introduced into the area after a travelling witch doctor and a handful of her disciples were led to Korpilombolo by following a cipher hidden within their most sacred of ancient scriptures.
2.Chris Gates, better known as goat, is a video game remixer who has many many power metal and synth metal remixes of songs from Castlevania, though he has also remixed several other games including Final Fantasy 4 and Super Metroid, and he has created some originals. His website hosts copies of most of his songs, including his recently finished project "Unchosen Paths", which remixes the entire soundtrack of Castlevania 3, and also its prequels in two bonus medleys.
3:Goat formed in February of 2010 and consists of, Lowell Thomas, Josh Andrews, and Zach Sorenson. Lowell has been playing and writing his own music since he was in high school. Josh has played guitar since high school. Since Lowell and Josh have been playing together, off and on for the past few years, they have played with quite a few drummers. Zach has been playing drums since he was a kid and started a cover band with a few friends and played for fun. Goat is a band from Chico, Ca.
4: With the motivational drive of a predator, GOAT, born Justin Griffith, has been consistently building a respectable reputation as a well-rounded artist since 2005. Hailing from Dallas, TX, GOAT (G.rades O.f A.bsolute T.ruth) represents a mature and classy side of melodic hip hop with a rock tint, which has yet to be seen in the mainstream. PegasusNews.com states, “Each of his songs takes on its own distinct flavor, pulling from varied musical and lyrical sources.” When writing, GOAT is a focused musician carefully crafting each phrase to perfection. On stage, he immediately attracts his audience with an inviting, endless energy.
Aside from GOAT’s guitar obsession at the age of 12, his passion for writing quickly progressed into lyrical expression. After collaborating and performing in rock, blues, and metal bands throughout high school, he soon realized that his hunger for success outweighed that of anyone around him. GOAT began producing solo material that evolved toward hip hop, but he thirsted for more knowledge of the recording industry. Without skipping a beat, he ventured on to study audio engineering and music production at The Recording Workshop in Chillicothe, Ohio (2001). After returning, he continued honing his performance skills by studying Classical Voice at The University of North Texas in Denton, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Music Degree (2005).
While desiring to help unify the D/FW scene for a philanthropic cause, GOAT founded Hip Hop Helps Heal, or H4, in August of 2008. H4 is a non-profit organization built on the love of music, where egos are left at home and people become selfless. They pledge to throw two events annually to financially aid specific concerns of the community, such as hunger, disease, and abuse.
GOAT’s professionalism is at its peak, and his obsessive-compulsive tendencies fend for a keen sense of self-reflection; therefore progression is definite. He recently solidified a 5-piece band to accompany him at special events. Their debut performance was in August of 2008 at the Hip Hop Helps Heal Breast Cancer Benefit Show. A West Coast Tour can be expected from GOAT and three6t in July of 2009 to promote the duo’s release of Mileage, which will include a guest appearance by Young Bleed. Though currently teaching music at an elementary school, GOAT is still in full pursuit of his life-long goals. The ultimate objective is to make a living creating music, but judging from his persistency, it won’t stop there. According to LIT Monthly, “…you’ll learn that, in this incarnation, G.O.A.T. ain’t playin’.”
