Goatwhore's music video for “Apocalyptic Havoc” is one of my we witnessed the debut of the video for “When Steel and Bone Meet”.
But, driven by a blood oath to heavy metal and perhaps the powers of Satan himself, Goatwhore forever persevere. ByGoatwhore had systematically harvested a legion of followers possessed by the band's profound maze of unhallowed lyrics, Celtic Frostian rhythms, and blackened bayou swagger.
Catastrophe—brewed sophomore release, Funeral Dirge For The Rotting Sun, bore a slower, broodier brand of apocalyptic menace; onethat trailed a near-fatal van crash that left Falgoust temporarily paralyzed and the future of the band in disarray.
Against all medical odds, Falgoust regained use of his legs and the band, now a four-piece with Duet taking on full guitar responsibilities, quickly returned to their rightful place on the road. Delayed but undeterred, Goatwhore's first Metal Blade offering proved their most volatile yet.
Relentless in speed, precision and barefaced animosity, Goatwhore had traveled well-beyond the confines of conventional black metal with a thrashier end product that fully-embraced their long-avowed Hellhammer and Venom devotion without ever plagiarizing it.
Hailed among the year's most worthy metal albums by fans and critics nationwide, Goatwhore's fourth long-player shattered mainstream conventions. Decibel magazine declared the production,"the band's tightest, most guitar-driven offering to date. An unholy smorgasbord of rigid tempo shifts, gargantuan hooks, blasting black mass anthems, and Falgoust's soot and venom snarl…," while Outburn compared it to, "a modern day, 'roid-injected sword fight between Celtic Frost and Venom.
For the next two years, the band maintained an infamously unyielding tour cycle, leveling cities throughout the US, Canada, Europe and Australia with their universally praised live rituals. Now featuring Duet, Falgoust, Simmons and bassist James Harvey, who joined the goaty ranks in following the departure of Nathan Bergeron, the record finds Louisiana's notorious metal horde at their most unified.
Review: Goatwhore - Music - The Austin Chronicle
Recorded and mixed at Mana Recording Studios in St. An appropriately infernal rendition of an often neglected classic, the song served as the perfect precursor to an album prevalent in its hailstorm of fist-pumping, heathen anthems and rhythmic devastation.
Exhibiting a labyrinth of moods and meticulous tempo shifts, Blood For The Master is streamlined without ever rendering itself predictable. They are a classic band and have been an influence in some way or another to all of us. This album is something years old and still rules. Each tune has its own elements and, surprisingly enough, everything sounds honest, straight-forward and flows really nicely.
Is your songwriting as honest as it sounds? We write songs we enjoy and that we like playing.
We have always been like this. We are crucial about what passes as a song, but in the same breath we are not restricted by our past. Is this something you take care of? Everyone in Goatwhore has their own individual influences within extreme metal and heavy metal in general. We all like different styles within this genre and it tends to come out when we put the ideas together in the writing process. The variance adds a unique approach to the atmosphere of what we do as a band and gives an intense approach to our songwriting and live show.
With the variances of influences it assists the difference within each track but still allows us to give it that Goatwhore sound.Goatwhore "Collapse in Eternal Worth" (OFFICIAL LYRIC VIDEO)
The songs really evolve over time, some things change and some things are added. The songwriting process is a very focused and mind straining phase. We like the material to be a good feeling for us, but at the same time we want to be very pleased with the final outcome. We never try to over extend ourselves on technical approaches and love the simple approach of a strong riff. It is all about what the final song feels like internally for ourselves first and foremost. It has evolved and takes practice over time to be able to come up songs with varied and balanced parts, like you say between brutality and melody.
We wanted it to remain interesting and keep the listener on edge so to speak. Have you found your actual sound or is there always room for evolution? There is always room for an evolving process. We have a very gradual thing going on and it works in our favor.
When Steel And Bone Meet Lyrics
I personally feel we can always take one more step in evolving as a band with each record. I would hate for things to stagnate and become boring. It is about inventing, or even re-inventing ideas, to come across new paths in our development as a band. Always room for evolution, within the confines of what makes us ourselves. There has always been a somewhat different sound with each new album but it you can always tell it is Goatwhore.
I say this as a long time fan of the band before I joined the band.
Pretty much Heavy Metal. We hate to be painted into a corner, but understand it is a necessity for people to put music into categories and sub-genres. A mixture of the aformentioned metal styles…individually we listen to all of the above and have pretty diverse but obvious tastes and influences.
We just do what we enjoy.
