Goatwhore continues to tour in support of Vengeful Ascension, released last June via Metal Blade Records. Their seventh full-length – captured at Earth Analog with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome, Wolvhammer) – serves as the band’s highest charting album to-date and continues to reap the praise of fans and critics alike. MetalSucks named Vengeful Ascension the band’s, “most vital album since 2006′s A Haunting Curse,” and one, “guaranteed to frighten your grandmother directly into her grave.” Loudwire noted, Vengeful Ascension has extremity black metal fans will dig, groove that will appeal to death metal aficionados, and potent guitar work thrash lovers can appreciate.” Blabbermouth hailed, Vengeful Ascension proves that the band is firing on all cylinders, standing tall as one of extreme metal’s leading bands.” Exclaim concurred crowning Vengeful Ascension, “one of the band’s strongest offerings to date.”

With roots in 70s fuzzy stoner rock, the grit of 90s grunge and the winning dirty rock n’ roll that has in recent years made a resurgence, Gozu has been churning out killer records since 2009. With 2016′s Revival they took their sound in a somewhat new and more aggressive direction, and in doing so, dropped the most compulsive, exciting and downright badass album of their career – and the recently released Equilibrium has only raised the stakes. “We wanted these songs to hit a nerve, make people shake their ass and enjoy simply being alive,” says vocalist/guitarist Marc “Gaff” Gaffney, who founded the band with lead guitarist Doug Sherman. Much of the record’s strength stems from the unit growing since Revival, the first full-length featuring drummer Mike Hubbard and bassist Joseph Grotto. Having also reunited with Revival producer Dean Baltulonis (Hatebreed/Goes Cube/The Hold Steady) at Wild Arctic Studio in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, the record is certainly the catchiest and most instant music dropped by the quartet, embracing their love of pop music but without compromising on any of the other vital elements of their sound.
