Goatwhore Names New Album "Carving Out the Eyes of God"

Black metal band Goatwhore has announced the title for their upcoming album, recently recorded with Erik Rutan at Manna Studios in St. Petersburg, FL. This highly anticipated album will be called "Carving Out the Eyes of God," and will be available everywhere on June 23, 2009.

The track listing for "Carving Out the Eyes of God" is as follows:

1. Apocalyptic Havoc
2. The All-Destroying
3. Carving Out the Eyes of God
4. Shadow of a Rising Knife
5. Provoking the Ritual of Death
6. In Legions, I Am Wars Of Wrath
7. Reckoning of the Soul Made Godless
8. This Passing into the Power of Demons
9. Razor Flesh Devoured
10. To Mourn and Forever Wander through Forgotten Doorways

Vocalist Ben Falgoust comments on the direction of the new album; “I don't really know how to explain this. I don't want to come off with the typical speech about how this record is our best yet and all of that. I will say that I am quite pleased how it has turned out and all parts relating to it. I feel every member put a great deal of effort into their part of the project. I even feel Erik Rutan busted his ass even more this time to make us feel that we didn't take any steps backwards in the recording and production of this release…I don't even really care what the critics say. I think the end result is basically coming up with something you have put a lot of work into and the satisfaction achieved in completing it. I will say that the new material is ripping metal and we still have that ‘Goatwhore' sound, whatever that may mean for each individual that enjoys or hates what we do. Just look at it as another step in the evolution of this band. Each person that hears it will have his or her own perception of it. Like it or not, we don't have a say in it. The only thing we can do is just keep writing the way we do and accept the criticism. Doesn't mean we are gonna listen to the criticism and change. Just give it an honest listen and if you dig it, awesome! If you don't, then pass it on to a friend or use it as a new drink coaster.”

wow. Erik Rutan cant keep his filthy hands off of any decent metal band these days. It seems he's involved with a lot of good sh**.

Hate Eternal obviously, Origin, Cannibal Corpse, now Goatwhore. Does he hate his wife and children or something?
