GOATWHORE will be touring in support of their Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven full-length, released in October via Metal Blade Records. Undeniably their most accomplished album to date in sound, concept, and execution, the twelve-track offering earned the #9 position on Billboard’s Current Hard Music Albums chart upon its first week of release and stands among the most volatile and plainly dangerous records to come out of 2022. Wrote Spin Magazine in part of the record in their The 10 Best Metal Albums Of 2022 piece, “Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven cherry-picks the best bits from various subgenres — the guttural intensity of death metal, the trilling majesty of black metal — and assembles them into songs that feel almost regal in their hateful conviction. A lot of the credit here goes to guitarist Sammy Duet, whose riffs snarl and gnash but also glint like light off a sacrificial dagger. Vocalist Louis Benjamin Falgoust II moves skillfully from screech to bellow, turning songs like the title track and ‘The Bestowal Of Abomination’ into hellish anthems, bringing damned souls to life…”

Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven was produced by Jarrett Pritchard (Exhumed, 1349) and tracked primarily at Studio In The Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana under pandemic restrictions. Additionally, the band recruited acclaimed producer Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire, Gatecreeper, Code Orange) to mix the record with final mastering duties handled by Grammy-award winning engineer Ted Jensen (Ghost, Gojira, Cult Of Luna). The record is tied together by the art of longtime collaborator Jordan Barlow whose cryptic use of sigils holds deeper meaning to the record’s totality.

Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven is available on CD, LP, and digitally. Preview and purchase yours today at: metalblade.com/goatwhore.
