It chronicles the struggles of a diverse group of residents as they rebuild their lives and their city. 'Treme,' pronounced Truh-may, takes its title from the name of one of the city's oldest neighborhoods, an historically important source of African-American music and culture.

Goatwhore premiere new music video on Bloody Disgusting
"When Steel and Bone Meet" video shot at the infamous House of Shock in New Orleans!

Head over to Bloody-Disgusting.com to check out the worldwide premiere of the new music video for When Steel and Bone Meet, shot with David Brodsky of My Good Eye at the infamous house of horrors, the House of Shock in New Orleans, LA. Be sure to catch the New Orleans, LA natives when they hit the road this summer as a part of the Summer Slaughter tour with label-mates Cannibal Corpse, which goes down after they finish up their European run with 3 Inches of Blood.

GOATWHORE debuted on Billboard Magazine's Top 200 Current Albums chart coming in at #171 with their latest release Blood for the Master, which sold over 3,100 copies in its first week. Blood for the Master, which just hit streets on February 14, also debuted on the following Billboard charts: #4 on the Heatseeker (New Artist) chart, #12 on the Current Hard Music chart, #21 on the Hard Music Chart (overall**), and #31 on Top Independent Albums chart and hit iTunes Rock chart at #19*. Blood for the Master also hit charts in Canada coming in at #142 on the Top 200 Current Albums chart, #18 on the Hard Chart, #1 on iTunes Metal*, #17 iTunes Rock*, and #152 iTunes Top 200*. (*iTunes numbers from street date - **chart includes catalog)

Here’s what press has had to say about the band’s latest release, Blood for the Master:

"Blood for the Master reeks of blasphemy, brimstone, Jagermeister and fire… more riffs, more plutonium-grade heaviness and more of the extreme metal genre-blending that made Carving such an enjoyable kick in the teeth." Decibel Magazine

"Blood for the Master is free of irony, pretentiousness, and bullshit… No frills rarely gets more satisfying than this." MetalSucks.net

"They still cherry pick the best elements from the fertile fields of black, thrash and death, but they've set their sights on classic metal this time round, and its influence shows in the comparatively straightforward thrills contained in this offering" 4/5 Kerrang Magazine

"This combination of ingredients — old-school riffage, modern sheen, charismatic singer, insanely metaaal imagery — makes for a record that’s almost impossible not to like." MetalReview.com

"Led by the premier riffin' rhythm work of Sammy Duet and Zack Simmons, and foisted above tinny black-metal mediocrity courtesy of Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal)'s megalithic production, Blood for the Master stands as Goatwhore's most interesting album in years and comes highly recommended." SLUG Magazine

"They’re tenacious, seemingly indefatigable, and continuously searching for that seamless synthesis of menacing malevolence and murderous musicality." Hellbound.ca

"If somebody could capture the speed of the harshest winds in the Antarctic they might come close to understanding the High Rocktane insanity of Goatwhore." CraveOnline.com

"Goatwhore have released what is easily the best album of their career." Metal-Army.com

"There’s more fantastic thrash moments mixing in nicely with the core black metal sound and the repetition isn’t there as much this time around. It’s a dirty, grimey record but catchy as hell and well worth the attention it’s getting. So yeah, I’m just like everyone else and tossing this one on my short list for best album of 2012." Popdose.com

"There may be other bands who tout this black/death style, but very few can make it both catchy and devastating. Goatwhore have been getting better as the years wear on, and this album established them as a metal band not to be ignored." About.com

"this is one of the best straight-up Metal releases I’ve heard in a long time." 9/10 metal-temple.com

"an album that can only be described as an unholy harmony of pure, savage metal." Lithium Magazine

"It’s a punishing and thunderous listen hellbent on relentless forward velocity." ThePRP.com

"Blood for the Master is a record that twists and turns effortlessly; each of the tracks are direct, passionate and emptied of frivolous, extraneous melodrama. This is ferocious, menacing and utterly beguiling stuff." AlternativeMatter.net

"Catchy yet menacing riffs exude punk rock attitude and a variety of rhythms, tempos and song structures make for a completely entertaining listen." Exclaim Magazine

"For those that continue to compare them to Celtic Frost mark this day on your calendar: Blood For The Master is the day Goatwhore far surpassed this clichéd reference and became the kings of their own nightmare." WeLoveMetal.com

Here's what press has been saying about the new album:
"Five albums in, GOATWHORE still hold the crown as the hardest-working band in metal. With Blood for the Master, all of their sacrifices have finally paid off…Blood for the Master reeks of blasphemy, brimstone, Jägermeister and fire." Decibel Magazine

"Blood for the Master is free of irony, pretentiousness, and bullshit…No frills rarely gets more satisfying than this. Hopefully, this is just the beginning of a colossal winning streak, and we can keep hearing about just how much the band hates Jesus for years to come." MetalSucks.net

"They still cherry pick the best elements from the fertile fields of black, thrash and death, but they've set their sights on classic metal this time round, and its influence shows in the comparatively straightforward thrills contained in this offering" 4/5 Kerrang Magazine

"This combination of ingredients — old-school riffage, modern sheen, charismatic singer, insanely metaaal imagery — makes for a record that's almost impossible not to like." MetalReview.com

"…if you listen to Blood for the Master with a critical ear you'll catch an album way ahead of the genre it's lumped into. That's the magic with Goatwhore, you can take what they do at face value or you can dig deeper. Either way you'll end up dancing around your room and debating whether or not tonight is the night you burn the Earth to cinders." CraveOnline.com

"There's more fantastic thrash moments mixing in nicely with the core black metal sound and the repetition isn't there as much this time around. It's a dirty, grimey record but catchy as hell and well worth the attention it's getting. So yeah, I'm just like everyone else and tossing this one on my short list for best album of 2012." Popdose.com

"Blood for the Master is another great album from Goatwhore that easily matches up to the last one. At this point in their career, a common sound has been woven that fans expect to hear. There may be other bands who tout this black/death style, but very few can make it both catchy and devastating. Goatwhore have been getting better as the years wear on, and this album established them as a metal band not to be ignored." About.com

"this is one of the best straight-up Metal releases I've heard in a long time." 9/10 metal-temple.com

"Goatwhore shows the capacity to combine blast beats with chuggy, layered guitars and vocals that are screamed but not beyond comprehension" BloodyGoodHorror.com

"Blood for the Master is a record that twists and turns effortlessly; each of the tracks are direct, passionate and emptied of frivolous, extraneous melodrama. This is ferocious, menacing and utterly beguiling stuff." AlternativeMatter.net

"lighting a fire under the ass of metal with their blood drenched combination of death metal, black metal, Motörhead grooves and punk." CraveOnline.com

"From 'A Haunting Curse' all the way to their brand-spanking-new release, Blood for the Master, these swamp-dwellers from New Orleans have refined their brand of blackened death metal" TheNewReview.net

"they slap false metal across the face" metal-army.com

GOATWHORE and HATE ETERNAL announce Feb-March tour

Label mates Goatwhore and Hate Eternal will be hitting the road on February 18th for a several week co-headlining tour. The supporting bands on the tour will be Fallujah and Cerebral Bore. The tour will take the bands from New Orleans to Brooklyn, with stops along the way in Hollywood, the Pacific Northwest and Canada. All tour dates can be seen now on the bands' facebook pages.

Phoenix Amongst the Ashes was released on May 10th and was hailed as "a relentless, intricate, and near-anthemic crowd-pleaser" by Revolver Magazine. Albert Mudrian of Decibel Magazine declared that Phoenix Amongst the Ashes is "the best death metal record I've heard in FOREVER!" while the folks over at Metal Sucks proclaim that "Phoenix Amongst the Ashes is the moment Erik Rutan's entire career has been leading towards -- it's heavy, it's catchy, and it's innovative. This is the best death metal album of 2011 so far, and other bands are going to have to work pretty hard to top it." Jade Simonetto's performance was complimented by the highly respected DRUM! Magazine: "Phoenix showcases a far more dynamic band. Guitar passages range from weedly to art-y to textured…juxtaposing break-neck verses with near-mid-tempo groove sections…Simonetto takes the gold for endurance." Needless to say, Phoenix Amongst the Ashes could very well be considered the best of the band's long and storied career.

Goatwhore is preparing to announce the details of their new effort. Goatwhore experienced a meteoric rise in 2010. Their song Apocalyptic Havoc appeared on the soundtracks for Splatterhouse and Saints Row: The Third, video game titles released for Xbox 360 and PS3, the video for the same song was used in an episode of Last Call with Carson Daly, they toured as part of Ozzfest 2010, and they also toured with Watain, The Black Dahlia Murder and more. Carving Out the Eyes of God, released at the tail end of 2009, was met with praise from fans and critics alike and hailed as one of the best metal albums of the year.
