Latest Goatwhore News
Below is our complete Goatwhore news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
Note: We began associating news directly with bands in late 2003. Therefore, earlier band news may not be listed on this page.
BYZANTINE will tentatively enter the studio December 8 to record the follow-up to 2005's '...And They Shall Take Up Serpents' before taking a break from the recording process to support God Forbid for two weeks on a tour package also boasting Goatwhore, Mnemic and Arsis. Upon completion of the tour, BYZANTINE will return to the studio to finish recording. Production this time around will again be handled by Aaron Fisher and BYZANTINE for the yet-untitled full-length, due for a 2007 release through Prosthetic Records.
"We have so far 11 songs in the bag and most likely will have 15 penned by the time pre-production starts," vocalist/guitarist OJ Ojeda previously stated. "Normally we write 10 and use 10, but riffs are flowing like mad and all four of us are writing material this time, which has been very interesting. All I can say is if this album doesn't kick our first two albums' asses, something is wrong! Some songs are pure thrash, some songs are off time as hell and some songs are depressing and dark. This album WILL be our finest effort."
In other news, Byzantine will appear on the upcoming EyeHateGod tribute record, 'For The Sick: A Tribute to Eyehategod,' performing the track "Shoplift." The record is currently slated for a Feb. 20 release through Season Mist America.

The show will also mark the "Headbanger's Ball" premier of the video for "A Dying God Coming Into Human Flesh", taken from their 2006 release "Monotheist".
"The tour and the audience's reactions have far exceeded all of our expectations," said bassist Martin Eric Ain, checking in from Calgary. "We have worked very hard to bring the FROST back, and the support of the people we have met so far during these shows has made it more than worthwhile. We are one-third into this tour, and we'd like to think there is much more to come and that we have much more to give."

SHRUM, the long-defunct side-project of late ACID BATH bassist Audie Pitre and drum programmer/keyboardist/vocalist Tomas Viator (DISINCARNATE, SUFFER), had four songs from their "Red Devils and Purple Ringers" CD posted online at this MySpace tribute page.
Described as "a psychadelic, death metal mix of chaos," SHRUM used two bass players (with former JACKNIFE bassist Joseph J. Fontenot on second bass) and no guitarists.
After two well-received albums, ACID BATH's career came to an abrupt and tragic close in 1997 when Audie Pitre and his parents were killed in a drunk-driving accident (the other driver was at fault), according to Wikipedia. This effectively brought ACID BATH to an end, with the other members finding themselves unable to carry on in the same spirit. While rumors of another album circulated after the band's end, nothing new surfaced.
Dax Riggs (vocals) and Mike Sanchez (guitar), however, did go on to perform in AGENTS OF OBLIVION, releasing one self-titled album until that also ended. Dax formed and is currently in DEADBOY & THE ELEPHANTMEN. Sammy Duet (guitar) was once a member of CROWBAR, but has since left the band. He is now a member of black metal bands GOATWHORE and RITUAL KILLER and his doom metal band with Kelly Pitre (the brother of Audie) VUAL.
AOL Music has full music streams of three new metal albums coming out this week:
