GOATWHORE have announced a new album!

Titled Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven, the upcoming album from the New Orleans, Louisiana-based blackened death metal band is the long-awaited follow-up to 2017’s Vengeful Ascension, and is scheduled to be released in October this year, via Metal Blade Records.

“I would describe this record as being very raw, but clarity is shaped within the chaos,” reflects vocalist Louis Ben Falgoust II. “It‘s a journey of everything we‘ve done and some new approaches as we advance forward. When we write, we mainly focus on the music and what we enjoy about playing it. We don‘t write just to appease others. We want to enjoy playing it in a live setting as well, especially night after night on the road.”

Teaming up with producer Jarrett Pritchard [EXHUMED, 1349] for a second time and tracking primarily at Studio In The Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana under pandemic restrictions, the band knew they were in good hands. Praising Pritchard as a great person to work with both in the studio and the live setting, Falgoust notes, “he has a good vision of what we are doing and trying to present. He tests you and forces the best performances out of you. Not in a bad way, just that he knows what each person could do prior to us entering the studio, so he has a level of expectation to push each one of us to our own individual performance levels.”

Additionally, the band recruited acclaimed producer Kurt Ballou [CONVERGE, HIGH ON FIRE, GATECREEPER, CODE ORANGE] to mix the record, a decision that truly enhances Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven‘s auditory superiority. Kurt actually brought a lot to the table,” says guitarist Sammy Duet. “He had some opinions on a few of the song structures, which was a first for us because we never had an outside ear giving ideas. The sound of the record speaks for itself.” Final mastering duties were handled by Grammy Award winning engineer Ted Jensen [GHOST, GOJIRA, CULT OF LUNA].

Alongside the announcement of the new album, GOATWHORE have released a new music video for the first song from the upcoming album; Born Of Satan’s Flesh. Speaking about the new song, Falgoust says, “welcome to the manifested curse of our latest offering. During the past five years since our Vengeful Ascension release, entwined with a state of isolation within that period, we have been communing with our inner abyss for inspiration. Idle time is truly the Devil‘s workshop. Feast your eyes (and ears) on this latest display of chaos, which is but a fragment of our impending full length release out in October!”
