Goatwhore Posts "Chaos Arcane" Video

"Vengeful Ascension" is the imminent new full-length album from New Orleans' metal legion Goatwhore. Set to drop on June 23rd via Metal Blade Records worldwide, the band's seventh full-length and second recorded reel-to-reel was captured at Earth Analog in Tolono, Illinois with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome).

In advance of its release, today the band shares an official lyric video for "Chaos Arcane." Based on H.P. Lovecraft's character Nyarlathotep who attempts to recount the inexplicable sense of fear in expectancy of an unknown evil, the track conveys that sensation of impending doom through sound in a way only Goatwhore can.

Goatwhore Reveals "Vengeful Ascension" Album

Goatwhore will release the "Vengeful Ascension" full-length album worldwide on June 23rd via Metal Blade Records. The band's seventh full-length and second recorded reel-to-reel, "Vengeful Ascension" was captured at Earth Analog in Tolono, Illinois with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome), breaking a four-album tradition of working with Erik Rutan.

"Working with Rutan was awesome," says Goatwhore front-man Ben Falgoust. "We did some great records with him. But you come to a point where you're like, 'All right. Let's try something new.' It was part of trying to remove ourselves from a comfort zone and a risk thing we needed to take. Plus, we really wanted to hit the essence of where we are live and what better way to harness that than by having our live sound guy involved. Jarrett is knowledgeable with the studio stuff. He also knows how we sound coming out of a PA and we really wanted to get closer to that."

The resulting ten-track, forty-one-minute production - mixed by Chris Common (Tribulation, Pelican) and mastered by Maor Applebaum (Faith No More, Halford, Today Is The Day) - marches in, clutches its listeners by the throat and refuses to loosen its grip until the abrupt conclusion of "Those Who Denied God's Will."

"Each song is a representation of Goatwhore. From day one until now. It really shows our evolution as a band," the front-man reflects. "I don't think that this band has reached its peak yet. I mean, I think we're closer now than ever but we're still growing; we're still evolving." More...

Amon Amarth Announces U.S. Tour

After touring the world this past year in support of latest album "Jomsviking" (which was included in our look at the best cover art of 2016), Amon Amarth will head back out on the road this spring for a USA tour with Goatwhore.

Starting April 30th, the trek also features select appearances by Amon Amarth at some of the nation's premier music festivals: Welcome to Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Dark Lord Day, Northern Invasion, and Rock on the Range.

Amon Amarth comments: "United States! We return to your lands this Spring and we will raid and plunder your little cities as we please. For the first time we will be sailing our longships towards the curious native celebrations called 'The Loudest Month' (Welcome To Rockville, Northern Invasion, Carolina Rebellion & Rock On The Range) where we will sack and burn them to the ground and feast on the spoils. Our good friends in the almighty Goatwhore will be joining us on this voyage on all headline shows. You have been warned."

Goatwhore's Ben Falgoust (vocals) adds: "We are looking forward to hitting the road with Amon Amarth and playing some raw as fuck metal for you people. Show up with your anger and let's make some chaos happen. I know you all need to vent some issues. Let's do it together and crush the opposition. I also hope by the end of this tour I can try to be as cool as Joe Grindo from Theories." More...

Goatwhore Announces New Tour Dates

The New Orleans road warriors from Goatwhore will return to the U.S. tour circuit this fall on a short run of live abrasions prior to and following an Ozzfest appearance in San Bernardino, California on September 24th.

The trek will commence on September 16th and rupture fifteen stages through October 1st. Support will be provided by The Blood Royale on select dates. Goatwhore's latest U.S. journey will follow a two-week stretch of European onstage debauchery set to kick off next month.

Comments Goatwhore frontman Ben Falgoust: "We have been associated with Ozzfest in the past and are grateful to be playing it this year, but being part of Black Sabbath's final West Coast show is another legendary experience to be affiliated with and be able to witness first hand, taking in every element of a band that has been a great influence on all levels in the metal world. Also, Ozzfest has given opportunities to countless freshly-emerging metal acts to forge new paths and give people new levels of extreme music to connect with and hear... that doesn't exclude this year.

"Tons of acts that have been pretty damn strong in the underground metal community will be making their first appearances at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest, as well as repeat acts that have been a part of it in the past. So, when you come to see Black Sabbath out West for their last time, come early and be a part of the future of metal, as well as it's legendary past."

Adds drummer Zack Simmons, "We are very honored to be a part of Black Sabbath's last ever California performance and Ozzfest's 20th Anniversary. It'll be a ripping day of heavy metal and a bittersweet farewell to the godfathers of the genre." More...

The Black Dahlia Murder will cross the U.S. starting 11/27 to headline the IndieMerch Tour with Goatwhore, Iron Reagan, Entheos, and Artificial Brain. All dates are available below.

New album "Abysmal" is a vicious slab of unrelenting aggression showcasing TBDM at its very finest with a meticulous, pin-point precise rhythmic assault mixed with ferocious speed and dynamic hooks.

The band re-enlisted the services of renowned producer Mark Lewis (Cannibal Corpse, Whitechapel) and former bass player Ryan Williams, who also produced "Everblack," with the sole intent to get away from the overt sonic sterility affecting far too many contemporary metal albums. More...
