Nashville based rock band Hogan’s Goat has released the Official Music Video for their single “Annie Off The Rails”. Originally premiered on Huffington Post, “Annie Off The Rails” is off of Hogan’s Goat’s self titled, debut album.
Hogan’s Goat tracks mud on your clean carpet. Located in Nashville, TN the band slithers in the swamps of Rock N’ Roll/Metal. A shotgun blast away from the big leagues, HG released their debut album in July of 2017. The band received 20+ reviews, all with high marks. With sites likening them to Guns N’ Roses, Mastodon, Red Fang, and Clutch, the band has the utensils necessary to stir the cauldron. Hogan’s Goat is bound to “usher in a new era of music.” [Kenny Larson, The Gauntlet]

And this review will be a touch different from what we’re used to, between discussing the Belarusian elements, attempts at pronunciation, and translations.
