REVIEW:: GOATWHORE - VENGEFUL AGGRESSION (METAL BLADE)



Goatwhore – Vengeful Aggression (Metal Blade)

You would think, success and the name Goatwhore wouldn’t be suited for each other, on the group’s moniker alone. However, if you’re a fan of Acid Bath and Soilent Green’s death-infused bayou metal, one can say it’s not too surprising to see the guys in Goatwhore having a bit of recognition. Busy creating albums, they are forever touring, with a stream of the coolest merch on the planet in tow for you to offend on casual Friday at the office.

New offering entitled VENGEFUL AGGRESSION (Metal Blade), is their 7th release and is packed with so much metal, any real metalhead would be a fool to not pick up on name alone. After a spin in the player, or mouse click if you prefer, you’ll find they deserve the respect as one of the top (if not THE top) modern-era metal bands. The Venom worship on “Under the Flesh into the Soul” can only be described as what Cronos and the boys REALLY intended to sound like if they could REALLY play their gear. “Chaos Arcane” starts as a blazing grindcore/d beat masterpiece bands like, Macabre or Crippled Bastards pull off, and finishes like Exhumed or Impaled. 

Look, I can dissect them all day. The point is, they fit all kinds of metal riffs (ALL KINDS) into their extreme stew. They will be heralded as one of the greatest metal bands of all time, and a true working-stiff’s story. The new tour with Venom Inc, Toxic Holocaust and The Convalescence is going to be a scorcher, especially the Philadelphia date which features opening act, The Bad Luck 13 Riot Extravaganza!
