    Goatwhore are returning with a new album, Angels Hung from Arches of Heaven, on October 7th via Metal Blade Records. Upon the LP’s announcement, the New Orleans band offered up the video for lead single “Born of Satan’s Flesh.”

    A vicious brew of blackened thrash and death metal is Goatwhore’s M.O., and “Born of Satan’s Flesh” hits that multi-genre intersection at blinding speeds. Guitarist Sammy Duet rains down precision riffs while frontman Louis Ben Falgoust II spouts blasphemies through his bellowing snarl. The accompanying performance clip offers a glimpse at what it would be like to witness the brutality live.

    The band again tapped producer Jarrett Pritchard (Exhumed, 1349) and tracked the new album primarily at Studio in the Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana under pandemic restrictions. Acclaimed engineer Kurt Ballou (Converge, High on Fire, Code Orange) handled the mix. Goatwhore’s lineup for the 47-minute collection features Falgoust, guitarist/vocalist Sammy Duet, drummer Zack Simmons, and bassist Robert “TA” Coleman (who makes his recording debut with the band on the new LP).


    “I would describe this record as being very raw, but clarity is shaped within the chaos,” said Falgoust in a press release. “It’s a journey of everything we’ve done and some new approaches as we advance forward. When we write, we mainly focus on the music and what we enjoy about playing it. We don’t write just to appease others. We want to enjoy playing it in a live setting as well, especially night after night on the road.”

    Speaking of the road, Goatwhore will embark on a co-headlining tour with Incantation in the coming days. The trek kicks off next Monday (August 1st) in Orlando, Florida, and runs through August 27th for a homecoming show in New Orleans. Pick up tickets via Ticketmaster.

    Pre-order the band’s new album Angels Hung from Arches of Heaven in a smattering of vinyl colorways and on CD via Metal Blade.
