Album Notes
GOATREIGN : A pummeling collection of gut-wrenching metal from Mike Hickey, guitarist of extreme metal acts, Venom, Carcass, Cronos and Cathedral. Crushing rhythms, searing lead guitar, wrapped up with a deadly production make Goatreign a solid slab of classic metal! This has been an underground classic circulated amongst metal bands and fans alike. Goatreign features Mike handling guitar, bass and vocal duties with longtime collaborator Shawn Progen on the drum kit. Recorded at The legendary Slaughterhouse with production by Mike and Mark Alan Miller. This proper CD release follows the limited Skull & Crossbones CDR release from earlier this year. This release contains the original six tracks plus an additional five bonus/demo tracks."

Mike Hickey has played guitar with British Metal Legends VENOM and CARCASS, and was also bassist with CATHEDRAL. You can hear Mike on the critically acclaimed 2006 release "METAL BLACK" by VENOM, as well as the recently released "Hell To The Unknown- The Cronos Anthology". Look for the release of GOATREIGN on Wabana/Cargo Records in August 2007! Mike has also performed with Derek Sherinian, DOWN, Brutal Truth, Pitchshifter, Nuclear Assault, The Hounds of Hasselvander, Eric Martin, and Twin Dragons. Mike endorses Charvel Guitars, Peavey Amplification and Seymour Duncan Pickups. Mike was also a contributor to Guitar Player Magazine Sessions columns and is a Truefire.com instructor.
