Norwegian death metallers GOAT THE HEAD have inked a deal with Aftermath Music. The band's second full-length album, "Doppelgängers", will be released on September 13 on both CD and vinyl. The record was mixed and mastered by Tue Madsen (HALFORD, BEHEMOTH, KATAKLYSM, THE HAUNTED) at his Antfarm Studio in Århus , Denmark and it "boasts 10 furious tracks exerting about every color of the metal palette," according to a press release.
Commented the band: "Ah, yeah, it's great to be back in business! It is with great anticipation and spirit we engage into cooperation with Aftermath Music, a label whose enthusiasm is both infectious and inspiring! Top-notch times!"
"Doppelgängers" track listing:
01. Neolithic Rocket Science
02. Uncanny Valley Clan
03. This Tube Is The Gospel
05. Bestial Domestication
06. The Hunt Is On (Sexy Son)
08. Stirring The Enigmatic Appetite

You can hear the opening track, "Neolithic Rocket Science", in the YouTube clip below.
There will be no less than two release parties in support of "Doppelgängers" — at Blæst in Trondheim on September 10, and at Garage in Oslo on September 11.
GOAT THE HEAD's debut album, "Simian Supremacy", was released via Tabu Recordings in October 2007.
Musically ferocious, uncouth and coarse in appearance, the Trondheim-based GOAT THE HEAD prefers to keep things "simple and organic," an attitude that is mirrored in its live shows, peppered with nudity and primitive rituals.
