GOATWHORE is 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.
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, digitally, and LP on multiple color variants. Preview and purchase yours today at: metalblade.com/goatwhore.

“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.” – Spin Magazine’s 10 Best Metal Albums Of 2022
“Angels… consistently rages without ever devolving into the samey sounding banality that plagues so many less adept practitioners. Angels… just gets better the longer it plays.” – Decibel Magazine
“A vicious brew of blackened thrash and death metal is GOATWHORE’s M.O., and ‘Born Of Satan’s Flesh’ hits that multi-genre intersection at blinding speeds. Guitarist Sammy Duet rains down precision riffs while frontman Louis Ben Falgoust II spouts blasphemies through his bellowing snarl. The accompanying performance clip offers a glimpse at what it would be like to witness the brutality live.” – Consequence
“…the band’s most diverse, epic and savage release all at once — an impressive feat for any band this deep into its career.” – Blabbermouth
“Angles Hung From The Arches Of Heaven proves yet again that one of the hardest working bands in metal can continue to impress us with their tried and true brand of blackened extremity.” – Metal Injection
“Twenty-five years into their career, GOATWHORE is here to do what they do best: rip, shred and tear with their signature blend of death, black, thresh and traditional metal, without apology, no quarter given.” – Knotfest
