VA - Goagilde (Norway's Got Goatrance)


Recommended Posts


Velkommen all to our first edition of N N N NOrways Got Goa!!!!!

Introducing your panel tonight, From the mountains of Torghatten and a lover of crazy spirally sounds... Thora!!!

and from the foothills of Drammen, fan of hihats and cymbols, Vilmar!

And Finally from Tromso, our celebrity judge, known for his outspoken feelings about basslines Carson!!!

But first, some underage but overage entertainment 




V: Well that was very bland.
C: As exciting as Potato
T: Well right you two, we have some very serious talent coming out of Norway for tonight's competition.


H: It’s time to G G Goaway for Norgeeeeeeee





H: First up Maan takes the stage, this individual is not here to waste time, started us off with electrified baselines and static whob whob’s.
T: I must say, I am very impressed with the degree of Whomp's along with the melodic zippers of this track 
C: Well Thora, man-o'-man Maan is one to book mark for later 3 Hei Hei's for the man Maan
V: I'm feeling wild about this one, that thick low, those beautiful high moments. I Didn't know Maan was such a boss...ah, scuse me mmhm, I mean Ombud. 

H: Well that leads us nicely into Phreak by Natures First performance of the evening.
T: it sure does Manfreid our little host, I wonder what he has in store for us? 
C: Well Thora, if you didn't talk so much you might just find out
V: Who knew there would be this much analog fury so early? I certainly didn’t but must say it is a treat. 2 serves of Lutefisk for our special little Phreak.
T: Well awarded, for the Phreaks infectious bouncy style. I grant a piece of art commissioned by Mr Munch

H: Well Thora and team, it’s time for Clementz to come in and boy does he come in with Voltage Control.
V: More electrified baselines and vibrations so tectonic I’ve lost my glasses.
T: Well for me Vilmar, I find Clementz to be particularly good when things are kept cool and not so in your face, this track masters that technique.
V: A fiery tale that reminds me of the old gods, a damnh good track 2 Hei Hei’s from me
H: Just look at the crowd


H: Excitaxory, Did I pronounce that right Vilmar? Silver Spoon I know how to say, here to play.
V: Shit rhyme dude.... Enunciation aside this sure is one heck of track
C: Ja ja, it’s bright, and shiny, with more than a hint of space bleeps and bloops.
T: A groovy, Space Odyssey type themed track, I must say that Excitaxory has me Excitaxed
C: Thora just shut up with the puns
V: Agreed close that ridiculous mouth of yours.
T: … This is a family show.
V: Bottom line, 3 Hei Hei’s.

H: A new name to the scene, Armakuni with the boldly titled Descending Into Darkness.
V:Bright Light and sparkled beginnings coming from big fellas Armakuni, I like the name, I like the Title, I like the style.
T: Yes very groovy with metallic confabulations of melodies from light to dark.
C: Metallic confabulated melodies? Jesus Thora just stop… Unlike that final melody that I wish would have never stopped.
V: Seriously Thora...
T: Well, Armakuni is here with one of my favourites of the night. A great track that eventually explodes into ecstasy and positive reinforcement as to why tonight has so far been so great.

H: Strong Words! Microcosm is here to take us to the beyond with one that might sound familiar When We All Come Together. I love a positive title.
T: Well this is one I’ve heard before, they say you can’t teach a dog new tricks, but you sure can edit a song to sound better.
C: For once I have to agree with you T.
V: Wait really?
C: Listen to the track V, feel the strength and speed of all that aural energy.
V: The leads were a bit sharp and intense, I appreciate the effort of you coming out here on stage for us Microcosm but for me it’s only 1 slice of Brunost.
H: The crowd seems to disagree with you Vilmar.


H: Moving right along,  A talent, a name, a contender, Phobium who has come along tonight to dazzle you all with Shape is Everything
T: I honestly wasn't expecting something so great to come our way so fast this evening.
C: It's like the only common denominator is that all these artists have some connection to Norway.
V: Norway and Goa, but what the fuck is going in Norway? Y'all eating magic over there?
T: Something is going on over here and it nothing short of magic.

H: Time for a new guest to join us on G G GOAS GOT NORGE. No wait, yes that’s right, N N NORGE's GOT GOA. Material Music with Shaktas
V: Ooph that was stiff
C: Material Musics first performance of the night. Heavy kicks and intense pressurized potential that gets unleashed over and over across the sound spectrum.
T: Ja, this track grows stronger and stronger, getting pretty wild and crazy at some points, maybe somewhat compressed? I don't know, i've literally never said that before..
V: Once again Thora, confusing everyone. Regardless, a very strong performance worthy of as many bottles of Aquavit as this person can carry. Well done Material Music

H: This is that good deep sexy Clementz. My preferred side of Clementz, oh wait, I’m the host, not a judge. Introducing Toffere Enn Toget (1977 Edit)!!!!
V: sheesh this guy?!? Well it’s the sexy deep styled Clementz track that I like. Such a painter of landscapes with his sounds.
C: That’s Right V, tranced out music to the max. A stellar performance and the outfits were just wonderful.
T: I agree, this track is pure big room trance type music that gets me feeling all fine. 


H: Whoooah-weeee, that was quite the thing alright, we should really all take a break and listen to a word from our sponsor Ringnes



"Solo, Save the world?"

""That's right everybody, Solo by Ringnes cool-drink will save the world""

"""You don't want this to happen right?"""

""""Come on kid, don't be like that, it aint that much, just ask your mum for some change and help the world"""""


""""""Save The World You Dick Kid""""""""


H: Introduuuuuuuucing Vimana Shastra who has come tonight to present to you all, Tura.
V: Thora are you really on your phone right about now!
T: One sec, aaaand, done, sorry gang, just had to look this artist up and save the name. 
C: You don't say? You have the tracklist bro. I wont be needing that though, this song isn't leaving my head for a while. 
T: A performance that invokes an artist deep dive for sure..
V:3 Hei Hei's from each of us.

H: Clementz Inside The Craft taking the stage
C: Love seeing back here Clementz you ballsy busy boy.
T: Well, in the words of all boy all Irish group The Wanted....  Glad you Came
V: A damn good slow burning candle made of trance wax. Groovy, sweet-toothed and engulfing.
C: Indeed, I wouldn't be able to put it any better than the the 5-grown-men-group-who-get-filmed-singing-&-dancing known as The Wanted.... Could This Be Love?

H: Homegrown Life Forms is a surprise appearance for the night. No doubt he has been sent back by the aliens that abducted him for tonight's performance.
T: Can some one fact check that please?
C: Put a sock in it and relax to some groovy music wont you Thora.
V: Well shit damn that's a deep groovy track. What's this all about then? This gonna be your thing huh? Gonna stick around or go back to your alien orgies?
T: Just keep em coming Homegrown that was 4 Lutefisks and a signed copy of innovative-child-time-writer Roal Dahl's childhood classic The Giant Peach from me.

H: Presenting a little known Angry Dwarf With Baobab (Echoes From Hamarr).
V: *Gasp* My Ganapati!
C: Settle down fellas, have a sip of Ringnes made Solo and allow me.
C: Exciting, psychotic, lush, mad, and sweet. clueless as to why I haven't heard of Angry Dwarf  before, I guess sometimes you just need that track. Coming in with something so far away from anything I was expecting.
T: 3 Hei Hei's and the orignal 35" film roll of Classical Child writer Roahl Dahls motion hit Matilda.
V: Give him the Other Giant Peach for that final act of glory.



H: Phew, in swoops Clementz to pick up all this broken glass left over from Angry Dwarf with Distorted Angel.
V: Well he does it well,  A bright light filled driving force.
T: Feel that build up, feel that energy.
C: Well I feel that warm and cruisy low end and I feel that melodic honey.
V: Not a drop of sweat to be seen, a 5 year pass to renowned golfing place Lofoten Links.

H: Back to the stage comes one of our top performers of the evening, Material Music. Already holding 3 lutefisks and 3 hei hei's.
T: What more could he possibly want with Omhu.
C: How about a little applause for another special little performance.
V: Made with 4 parts floaty, 3 parts trancedelic and 2 nips of lead chord melodic madness in this order.
T: Shaken, and poured over clearly produced psychedelic fun. Omhu rules.

H: Drum Pets remixed by Strangepork would like to, for the first time tonight present this belter Melt The Walls.
C: Fantistic intro
T: Then a great change up just after 3 minutes.
V: And another only moments later. a building mountain of momentum that comes closer and closer together.
C: Valleys closing in and oceans meetings, Worlds beginning and worlds ending, Melt The Walls takes you there.


H: A little to real Carson... Introducing Phreak By Natures second blaster Reaching Out To Another Dimensions.
T: Can you remember all the way back to his first song guys? All i remember is both were fantastic.
C:You're a Terrible judge Thora, of course we remember the first track, we are judges.
V: You're bringing the word into direpute T.
C: This track was crazy good. A big bloody belting psychedelic boom boom show that I keep wanting to hear again and again.

H: Trold - Torus Fields up next to see what he can wow the judges with.
T: First of all. 'i'm the terrible judge?' You guys haven't given an award out since the Omhu Cocktail analogy. Torus Fields though; Super thick badumba kicks and a groovy rhythm on top.
C: Then a melody of bliss and pleasure.
V: For the audiences at home this is really something to be here live.
T: Lucky fella's indeed. This track goes into infinity and makes me instantly interested in increments of inebriation from this infectious installation of music.
C:...Dude, nice.

H: Velkommen Tilbake! We are back and Psylosopher is taking the limelight with Aphorism, a dark and moody slow banger to help you all calm down from the chaos so far.
T: That’s no calming piece. It’s broody dawg, good broody.
C: Maybe you’re a wimp? I think the whole schtick of this track is groovy and hypnotic. Especially that final melody.
V: Come now, just revel in the slow moovy melodies of Aphorism. This would fit nicely in any downtempo-midtempo set that needs a little under the covers fumble. Reminds me of some tracks from the VA - Spiritual Doping.
T: Not a favorite tonight maybe a bit different, I know I know, we should celebrate differences and all. Sheesh, I get it.  Aphorism has its own edge which I have to respect.

H: Protostar One hitting us with Quantum energy
T: Taking to the stage like a kitten in milk.
C: Or a Bunyip under Trollfjord.
V: Might have lost our audience with that one you two. Yet another hypnotic electro banger that aims to please. Smooth and waxy, like a lot of tracks tonight it really builds into something larger than the sum of its part. That final build and explosion of energy is just so sweet.

H: Next up, a name we have seen before (but not tonight) here to take the stage and our hearts, the beautiful Aion with Synergetic
T: Using words and Acid to get us in the Zone.
C: Ja ja, More Goa than what i've heard from Aion before, more badass. 
V: That low end metallic vibration is beautiful
T: A great great track with spirals of zippity fun.
C: The crowdo-meter is high after this one.

*H: Ah, wrong feed there guys.*

H: Now I know everyone here has been looking forward to this moment. It's Raaaa! With his rendition of Escaping Gravity.
C: Oh jeepers, I didn't know if this was going to be old school Ra or new School Ra but I also didn't mind which.
V: Well yikes, I wanted old school Ra and it's what he brought along. Melodic floating and sparkling track. 
T: A step down from some of the psychotic music we have heard, it's time to relax and drift off into the cosmos with these Norwegian maestro's.
C: All agreeing on 3 Hei Hei's and a 3 minds full of Kos.
V & T: Agreed!

H: Oh well guess whats next. Goalien is here right here right now with track Ayahuasca
T: Takes balls to give a track such a potent name
V: Tell that to the guys over at progressive-psytrance-music.com.
C: I Was expecting more Nitzho here, some of the inbetween bits here and there dont catch me, but then all of a sudden, explosion. I should have known this would come. 
T: Hard banging trance that I tip my hat too and award the sole rights to Edvard Munch's 'Man With A schlongle'

H: Material Music just wont stop, so here is A Noble Prize
C: Hot tamili it's an organic piece. Lovely intro and sounds
T: And then boom boom pow we get big hard trance coming at us.
V: A first half of calm surrender and then a second act of the exact opposite.
T: Another stand out and reason to give this artist more attention, bravo Material Music. 1 all inclusive 9-Day Scandinavia, Russia & Baltic cruise from our kind sponsors Norwegian Cruise Line.

H: Another relentless trancer back for another show, it's Clementz – Surrender to the Universe
T: This is the in your face Clementz that unfortunately doesn't rock my socks off.
V: I have to unwillingly agree, It has all the things i like about Clementz but that in your face lead is a bit much at this point.
C: I love the opera voices in the back ground and about everything from the 4 minute mark.

H: Alright lets see if something a little bit newer from our Microcosm team can do the trick for Thora this time around with Right on Time and on Another Place in Outer Space (Phreak By Nature Mix) 
T: Back for another gander. This track hits me right in the sweet spot.
C: The perfect version of a Microcosm track. Man I wish I could hear more of this.
V: Forget Andrea Bocelli and Ed Sheeran, This is the real Perfect Symphony
T: For that final sexy, groovy act I offer a life time association with the 47 different Norwegian national parks scattered around this fine part of the world.

H: Lemurians up nextoooooo with his new rendition? properly presented? remastered? and renamed track Not Expected
T: I'll take properly presented & renamed. Personally I have to say mr Lemurian, that was beyond stellar, it was insteller.
C: Ummmm, You could have said interstellar? That would have been way cooler.
V: Boooom! Baby, this is one of my favorite performances of the evening. 
T: He even says the words and it still takes you by surprise.
C: Just have a look at the crowd they loved it!  



H: Oh no, we aren't done yet. Like the final bite of a 28 slice pizza we present Ion Vader!!! Introducing his hit Harmonic Defiance (Bonus Track).
T: Smooth and cruisy.
C: There was really no need to give this evening some downtempo number. Finish high and strong.
V: I like the energy and final vibe that the producers over at Kali Earth Records have left us with.
T: A strong track too, and a familiar name I was not aware was from the land of the Giants. Fjords that is.

H: Folks, Members of the no longer human species, that is the show tonight. Full of bravado, power and a form of hubris that I can't help but respect. I like to think that I haven't formed this opinion because I think the gang over at KER are cool dudes, but this is the comp. I think it's fantastic, Mariquesart gorgeous artwork, the entire crowd funded build up to it, the actual talent, the crazy wonderful and weird side of trance music.

3 Cds is a challenge to review.  Especially for someone with attention span problems and two kids.  That's a lot of music and it's easy to lose focus and write coherently about what you've been listening to for almost 4 hours.  So much you could do in that amount of time. 

You could watch It Chapter Two and still have enough time left over for a sit down dinner.

I've already upped my ukulele game.

Hey look, bears do more than just, ah...you know.

You could eat off my bathroom floor.  Is what I'd be saying if I was demented enough to spend four hours cleaning the bathroom.  Who f*cking does that?

Anyway, this limited to 300 copies  3-CD monster dropped just before the closing bell of 2019 and it features Norwegian artists.  And they've got goa trance.  No longer is it left to Ra to hold the mantle of the only goa trance artist from the icy north.  Waitaminute...Goalien is Serbian.  Ok, some currently reside in Norway or have some other connection.  Cool.  

*Important update*

It has been brought to my attention that Aion is actually Norwegian.  His discogs page was apparently hacked.  Sorry for that misunderstanding. 

So for this review I cannot (and will not) go through every track.  Too much and nobody wants to read a wall of text.  I'll break it down in 3 parts corresponding to each CD.  You know highlights and such.  Up first is CD 1 Analogue Fjords Of Norway.  Maan (new album Floral Cortex out now) starts things off with his 303 dogs barking and Phreak By Nature delivers a bouncy track.  Clementz (album Kretsløp still fresh) has two tracks on the first disc and they are both high intensity.   Two things...the goa is good here (if a little on the light, whimsical side) with my favorite being the Material Music offering Shaktas.  This is how you do a long track.  Shimmery sounds, breakdowns and reorganizations, and maintains momentum throughout its entire length.  And two...how did Silver Spoon end up here?  It doesn't fit at all, standing out in a negative way.

CD 2 Norwegian Aural Borealis

It gets a little deeper now.  A little chunkier.  A little more full-on.  Clementz with another 2 tracks (Distorted Angel is on his album) on this disc leads the way.  Baobab is a bass heavy monster with screeching 303s and a bruising climax.   Omhu is a twirling track with sunshine melodies and quality breaks.  Melt the Walls is very psychedelic sounding bearing more than a passing resemblance to Hallucinogen,  but the track I was most looking forward to hearing was from Trold.  Perhaps a mind melting merging of forest and goa trance that just continued to gain strength until its final cacophony.   Well that didn't happen, but it was still pretty good.


CD 3    Yah-hey Tru Norvegr    

Ah the final disc.  Aphorism is a competent downtempo goa track and Quantum Energy sounds like it just came off the Ovnimoon assembly line.  A Noble Prize by Material Music is the winner on this disc, combining power and mysticism in an elegant stew.  Not Expected from Lemurians reminds me why I never liked their previous work.  Closing things out the bonus track is a strong one by Ion Vader with dark overtones and a rapid tempo.                                         

SO there you have it.  It's certainly worth picking up.  To my ears the filler was kept to a bare minimum.  There is some very good goa trance tracks to be found here and some artists I will be keeping an eye on.  I can't comment on what is on the inside of the 3-Cd package as I have been listening to the FLAC.

Phreak By Nature - Lit the Fuse
The tempo is quite slow and the bassline is pretty groovy, it sounds very old school, reminiscent of the early Distance to Goa. Not that great though. 

Excitaxory - Silver Spoon
A slow morning track, relaxing and a bit similar to the opening track but with a more charming atmosphere.

Armakuni - Descend Upon
Very old school again, sounds almost like Psychaos - Keyboard Widow.

Microcosm - When We All Come Together
Intense acidic goa trance with big climaxes, the album was one of the nicest surprises of 2011 (read the reviews here: https://www.psynews.org/forums/topic/66071-microcosm-higher-levels/ ).

Material Music - Omhu
It goes from one groovy bassline to another, then unleashes the eastern goa melody while always keeping a powerful mindset. Great stuff.

Clementz - Tøffere Enn Toget (1977 Edit)
This music is not subtle, it is fast and powerful, straight to the point with nice acid leads and a high level of psychedelia.

Clementz - Inside The Craft
Another intense track, quite repetitive but also more emotional thanks to some warm trance pads. 

Clementz - Distorted Angel
My favorite track from him here with the hottest synths available. Full power (think MFG - When We Dream).

Material Music - Shaktas
Impressive track again with a lot of energy, eastern melodies and a lot of twists in this long track. Very strong work. 

Angry Dwarf - Baobab (Echoes From Hamarr)
Interesting track! Listen carefully and there is a melody very similar to Man With No Name - Own The World. One of my personal favorites here.

Drum Pets - Melt the Walls (Strangepork Remix)
Obvious old school vibes and with a nice triplet part. Awesome stuff.

Trold - Torus Field
Well executed, very smooth and nice work on the playful melodies (remember this album? https://www.psynews.org/forums/topic/20891-trold-once-upon-a-time-apoxina/ I had totally forgot about it...).

Aion - Synergetic
A pure goa trance track and quite acidic later one, definitely a highlight. 

Ra - Escaping Gravity
This creation from Ra is more on the chill side, a nice chill trance track, as usual very well executed.

Goalien - Ayahuasca
Did anyone notice how similar to Transwave the first part sounds? Although the last minutes are a bit cheesy.

Lemurians - Not Expected
Perhaps the coolest bassline in this compilation =) a different track, more psytrance than goa trance, interesting approach. 

Ion Vader - Harmonic Defiance
One of the fastest tracks to end the journey, a wild take on psychedelic goa trance.


I know psytones has been spamming a lot about Material Music but this artist is special, everything I listened from Material Music was from solid to brilliant, it is certainly an interesting name if you are into mature psytrance combined with goa elements.
As for the whole compilation, it has a few fillers (as you could expect among 28 tracks) but the variety of ingredients you can hear is pleasant. At this price, when over half of the tracks have something interesting to offer, it is a bargain. 

Rating: 7.5/10.

dude are you the one who asked me to make a review....o dang sorry.you did awesome job my friend!

Thanks, that must be psytones :D for something released in 2019 it doesn't sound like new school Goa. Not perfect but very good overall and the nostalgic feel is there.

Heia alle sammen! Dude, Tsotsi. Your review. That GIF just hitting the start-point of this VAs actual conception while watching T.V. (Norway's Got Talent) with my -at the time- girlfriend. LOVE. Thank you for it :D *Find your 'a small piece of norway' gift at the buttom of this post. Reading the Reviews it's so far a clear win to Material Music. So because of this I'd like to take the opportunity and bump up this thread with some good news! Material Music's personal BC page has been updated today with this baby: https://materialmusic.bandcamp.com/album/goagilde-kali-earth-records-va :wub: 

Quote: ...how did Silver Spoon end up here?  It doesn't fit at all, standing out in a negative way.
Answer: It for sure is in the style of call it 2000ish hardware Scando Forest as it's orginally from 2002, and remade with the same equipment for this VA., and from the 2 tracks offered to the VA, it was the best in terms of norwegian fairytales-feel ,,Goatrance" while the other was less, melodic .. The Artist name which isn't really that simple to remember how to spell, is E x c i t a x o r y (i spelled that now without checking), and his original Artist name is Engines Of Creation ;--) https://www.discogs.com/artist/7567739-Excitaxory I guess at this point of this here Norway's Got Goa-Trance competition, Excitaxory got null points from you. .. maybe you're right that out of ALL of the tracks on this VA, Silver Spoon is the least Goa-Trance track on it, if that is also what you meant. .. Or - + hei I like the title of his track, it reflects Norway anno. 2019. Silver sppon in our mouth filled with oil, while looking at the breathtaking nature. + I placed it there because after such a powerful start to the VA.. this track gave a breathing room to chill a bit down n' continue the track-order journey.  I used to, and am still most proud of the -imo at least- solidness of CD1 - Analogue Fjords Of Norway (with Shaktas on it not Omhu - oh the depression)

PS. If you sail your boat from the world in to the Sout/west coast of Norway, you will see the entrances to the majastetic Fjords where also Maan lives. And there, by the Fjord of known Fjord entrances, you will find Goa and the coasts beautiful beaches with surfers on it's waves. Goa in Norway is neighbouring Stavanger the Oil City, where Material Music lives. Travelling even further up the west coast you will find Trold on Karmøy, and on one of the islands on the way to Bergen where Strangepork ley, you can find Armakuni ... harsh elements there as well as great beauty. Welcome*

Else, I have no review words :mellow:

.. a fun-fact: The National Library of Norway made an inquiry for us to send them 3 physical copies (+ digital) for future safe-keeping, that's to say preservation. Which means the 3xCD V/A is now actual historic. Limited Edition as it is. https://kaliearth.bandcamp.com/merch/goagildes-original-art-paintings < I'm thinking about doubling the price of the Original Goagilde Artworks, because I don't want to sell them.. But if someone do, the money will be divided between all music Artists (incl. KER) on board the Goagilde. The VA has reached 0,- a long time ago, but a profit to speak about has yet been reached - Music Artists on it gets royalties of the sales after it hits zero and ventures into a gilde to share around. .... A follow-up VA named Goagimle would be ace.

Hope to read more reviews ~

:D for something released in 2019 it doesn't sound like new school Goa. Not perfect but very good overall and the nostalgic feel is there. 

Pump the spam :rolleyes: .. Goagilde tracks are made from 1995 til 2019 (the production years per track is written inside the physical copy) - Just for the general info, tho' generally the VA does have many newer tracks on it, like on Disc 3. Some, like Tura by Vimana Shastra who told me he listened to RA the first time he experienced Goatrance; made a older style sounding new school (the psytrance style he likes, daggadagga) track in as good a way he could with respect, ..plus his mother, unfortunately she died in the process of making the track. Which took it's toll:( .. For sure the VA contain many tracks that can be discussed how 'GoaTrance' they actually are or not. But one thing is for certain, no matter what. Norway Got Goatrance. Biggest -recent years- proof of this is the forever Ra, the gem that is Microcosm, the hands-on Clementz, the talented Material Music, Maan .. and whom else you'd like to call, real (norwegian) Goatrance producers. The VA btw. does contain Norway's oldest Goatrance track.
