On this national day of prayer where we are fucking the poor and sick and pissing on anything holy by allowing Churches to dictate politics and still pay no taxes (much like the very rich), you might as well blast some fucking Goatwhore and point your middle finger at the sky, right?! I for one am psyched as fuck for the latest from one of the most consistent killer acts in metal. Can they top the last two? This is one of the few bands in metal who have only improved with every release and yet the early stuff inverts virgins as well!!
Goatwhore will release their anticipated Vengeful Ascension full-length 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 near Champaign, 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.”
