Goatwhore Wraps Up Summer Slaughter 2014

- August 13th, 2014 –

Headlining Takeovers Commence + Band To Support Samhain On Select Dates

Following a near month-long run of live debauchery on this year’s edition of the Summer Slaughter tour, today New Orleans’ favorite metal horde/perpetual road hounds, GOATWHORE, kick off a short bout of headlining takeovers through Pittsburgh, Newport, and Poughkeepsie before making a special appearance at this year’s Gwar B-Q on August 16th. The band will take a short break before going roadbound again in September supporting death rock/horror punk icons Samhain on select dates. Additionally, GOATWHORE will make their way to Europe this Fall/Winter with headliners Dying Fetus. Set to commence on November 8th in Liege, Belgium, the epic journey will trample its way through nearly four dozen metropolises, coming to a close on December 20th in Leer, Germany. Additional support will be provided by Malevolence and Fallujah.

GOATWHORE is currently touring in support of their Constricting Rage Of The Merciless full-length, an infernal masterpiece which debuted at #81 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, toppling their last entry position of #171 with Blood For The Master. Constricting Rage Of The Merciless also ranked in at #21 on Billboard’s Rock chart, #7 on the Hard Rock chart and #13 on the Independent chart!

Earlier this Summer GOATWHORE unveiled their ripping new video for third Constricting Rage Of The Merciless hymn, “Baring Teeth For Revolt.” Shot at the infamous House Of Shock in New Orleans by lauded videographer David Brodsky of My Good Eye (Hell Yeah, Whitechapel, Cannibal Corpse, Municipal Waste et al), the clip is an audio/visual hailstorm of bludgeoning live energy.

Crowned “…a blasphemous blast…” by Decibel Magazine, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless is at once predatory, epic, misanthropic and sadistic. Captured at Mana Recording Studios with Erik Rutan at the helm, the record invokes the tar-thick, battle-ready tone and vitality of GOATWHORE‘s molten onstage attack in a way previous releases have not and continues to reap critical accolades from fans and media globally. Sputnik Music gushes “[GOATWHORE] deserve a ton of credit for grinding along for so long making blackened death/thrash metal with the same level of ferocity, enthusiasm and New Orleans grit as they were on their 2000 debut The Eclipses Of Ages Into Black… one of extreme metal’s most unheralded, blue-collar bands,” Metal Injection christens it, “the new high water mark of the group’s work thus far,” while Exclaim concludes, “GOATWHORE have always had the stench of brimstone about them, and their latest offering in no different, a vein of smoldering hatred for everything pure and good anchoring the record in a kind of ravenous decadence.” Elsewhere Invisible Oranges calls Constricting Rage Of The Merciless, “a fucking solid release and one wild ride down the highway to Hell,” Dead Rhetoric applauds the band’s “masterful work of extreme metal,” while Pop Matters adds fittingly, “a brutally bleak aural onslaught that will no doubt get metal heads pumping their fists and headbanging along with these pummeling anthems of chaos and despair. Clear heirs to the thrash metal throne, GOATWHORE ably step up with this masterful slab of blacked metal and stake their claim as one of the best in the business circa-2014. One listen to the exhausting Constricting Rage Of The Merciless would make theirs a hard case to refute.”
