HOLY SHIT! We’ve known for a while now that the mighty Goatwhore has been hard at work on their sixth studio album, but now it’s complete, and we now when it’s coming to destroy everything around us! The metal giants from New Orleans will be unleashing “Constricting Rage Of The Merciless” on July 8th via Metal Blade Records! With each release these guys continue to push the boundaries of metal and leave every other band in the dust. The only update we’ve received from the guys on the new material was a few weeks back when they said “Just wait until you hear the riffs for the new album from Sammy!” If that doesn’t get you excited, the statement below from Erik Rutan will! The legendary front man/producer who worked on the new record said this: “Working with Goatwhore again for our 4th album together was amazing! It is through our experience and established trust and bond in the studio that allowed us to push each other to the limits, only to achieve the best performances and tones we could. This album came out so dynamic and huge, partly due to the fact that we recorded drums, bass, and main rhythm guitars to analog tape. Goatwhore has a massive sound and we all felt recording to analog would be the best way to capture it, giving it a very unique quality and feel, built off of integrity and vibe. This is our finest moment working together and the guys did an incredible job creating and performing all the songs on this record. Goatwhore fans be prepared!”
I think I speak for the whole metal scene when I say BRING IT ON! This is a band that plays metal the way it’s supposed to be played, and are just unstoppable in my mind. From their live shows to the albums, they are in a league of their own. Bring on the Metal Alliance Tour and July 8th already! New Goatwhore is COMING!
