Here is a collection of singles and songs that were featured on various splits from France's The Austrasian Goat.  Apparently, Austrasia was the name of a forgotten land, between France and Germany. Centuries after centuries, the people of Austrasia refused the christian influence and kept a relative independence until the 18th century. Through the ages, this land kept marks of ancient pagan rites, scares of deceases and major conflicts, and shroud of suffering, hidden behind apparent serenity. This green and gray desert attests the fall of a civilization. 

This is what I would describe as what would happen if Gnaw Their Tongues, Khanate, Nortt, and (insert relentlessly heavy doom band here) all had sex.  The Austrasian Goat would be their love child.  That's probably not the best description of the music, but I'm sure you get the idea.

Go on, Smoke with the Goat... yeayourite
