Hereís what press has had to say about the bandís 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."

"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 ó old-school riffage, modern sheen, charismatic singer, insanely metaaal imagery ó makes for a record thatís almost impossible not to like."

"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

"Theyíre tenacious, seemingly indefatigable, and continuously searching for that seamless synthesis of menacing malevolence and murderous musicality."

"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."

"Goatwhore have released what is easily the best album of their career."

"Thereís more fantastic thrash moments mixing in nicely with the core black metal sound and the repetition isnít there as much this time around. Itís a dirty, grimey record but catchy as hell and well worth the attention itís getting. So yeah, Iím just like everyone else and tossing this one on my short list for best album of 2012."

"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."

"this is one of the best straight-up Metal releases Iíve heard in a long time." 9/10

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

"Itís a punishing and thunderous listen hellbent on relentless forward velocity."

"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."

"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 clichťd reference and became the kings of their own nightmare."
