Taking the Head of Goliath, an American Christian Death Metal band originated in the twin cities, Minnesota in the year 2015. What started with Jake Martin, Matt Vangsgard, Nathan Sherman, Rob Blake became best known when they hired Bassist/Backing Vocalist Luke Renno of the band Crimson Thorn. The band signed up with Rottweiler Records when they were featured on the compilation called Kill the Ill a Benefit Compilation for Grave Robber singer and Rottweiler Records founder, Shawn Browning, to raise money for his medical expenses. By the way the compilation is a massive effort to gather 80 bands on to this mother of all Compilations. Do take a moment and check it out.

With caution and an open mind I take upon myself to review their first ever released EP, as it may set out the tone and expectation for the rest of the community. Starting off with “The Expulsion of Putrid Illusion” which has an array of blast beats with heavy guitar riffing and monster growls which are hard to miss at the opening of the song. The band is very tight and their crisp performance pulverises the grey matter of your head. Continue reading »

From the most innocuous and innocent origins come the greatest stories—tales of the underdog conquering the oppressive forces that be, turning the tides against all odds to vanquish evil and emerge victorious, a stalwart and obelisk to the forces of good. Despite their punishing and intense style of bone-breaking, skin-shredding brutal death metal, the Twin Cities-based, Taking The Head Of Goliath are such a story. Beginning from the ashes of previous projects with the goal of creating a Christ-centered, more-crushing-than-a-ten-ton-bulldozer amalgam of brutal death metal with all the genre’s various technical, grinding and thrashy subgenres to completely obliterate the sensibilities of their listeners. Taking The Head Of Goliath—while on one hand, are precisely as violent and intimidating as their name might imply—are a force for life; a driving and dedicated display of a love for all things death metal that simply demands to be heard.
