Short Bio: Formed in 2014, Goatchrist is a mouthpiece for a variety of occult and esoteric spiritual teachings from a variety of different schools of thought, channelled through a varied – yet consistently eclectic – musical sound. Comprised of sole member Jacob Guilherme, Goatchrist has released several albums, dealing with such topics as Pythagoreanism, Gnosticism, Vajrayana Buddhism, and (most prominently) Kabbalah and Jewish mysticism. Whilst the musical roots of Goatchrist lie in black metal – the debut album in 2019, Pythagoras, and 2021’s Odes to the Radiant One evidencing this – the sound has continually evolved to encompass a broader range of instrumentation and compositional techniques.
