GOATWHORE's latest full-length, Vengeful Ascension, was released last June via Metal Blade Records. Their seventh full-length -- captured at Earth Analog with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome, Wolfhammer) -- serves as the band's highest charting album to date and continues to reap the praise of fans and critics alike.
Wrote Alternative Press, "The album roars with the classic GOATWHORE sound of searing, shredding, and screams of rage. The material also tries some new things, tossing in a bit of blackened atmosphere, adding to the philosophical questions the music dives into." Blabbermouth hailed, "Vengeful Ascension proves that the band is firing on all cylinders, standing tall as one of extreme metal's leading bands." 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," while Loudwire added, "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."
Vengeful Ascension is out now on Metal Blade Records on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. To preview and purchase the record, visit metalblade.com/goatwhore.
