Archgoat was formed in 1989 by Ritual Butcherer and Lord Angelslayer.
In 1992 they signed with Necropolis Records and recorded in 1993 the EP Angelcunt (Tales of Desecration) for this label. After the release of this EP they entered studio to record a full length for Necropolis Rec., but after disagreement with the terms of the contract they decided to not release this album. This material was finally released in 2005 as an EP named “Angelslaying Black Fucking Metal”. In late 1993 Archgoat decided to vanish from the Black Metal scene.
Archgoat reformed in 2004 and is still active now.
