GOATWHORE’s most recent full-length, Vengeful Ascension, was released to critical acclaim via Metal Blade Records in 2017. “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,” wrote Loudwire of the band’s highest charting album to date. Louder Sound noted, “Vengeful Ascension is the most mature recording in the GOATWHORE canon. Its combination of disparate subgenres from opposite ends of the structural and melodic continuum is masterful, resulting in a remarkably non-contrasting display of good and evil; that being good songs that sound as evil as all hell.” Added Angry Meta Guy, “This is yet another enjoyable, catchy and barnstorming GOATWHORE album, baring enough memorable riffs, raw savagery and variety to remain engaging across its efficient duration… an ideal soundtrack for engaging in mischievous mayhem or simply knocking back some brews with good company, and that folks, is what GOATWHORE is all about.”
