“…a blasphemous blast…” – Decibel Magazine

GOATWHORE channels every evil impulse of its blackened death thrash into Constricting Rage Of The Merciless…” – Austin Chronicle

“Constricting Rage Of The Merciless definitely stakes a claim as the new high water mark of the group’s work thus far… the closest GOATWHORE have come to bottling the blistering energy of their live show…” – Metal Injection

“They’ve always been lethal live, but with each successive album, GOATWHORE proves to rank amongst the best of the best of their ilk.” – Blabbermouth

“With barely any time to breath in between tracks, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless is a brutally bleak aural onslaught that will no doubt get metalheads pumping their fists and headbanging along with these pummeling anthems of chaos and despair. Clear heirs to the thrash metal throne, GOATWHORE ably step up with this masterful slab of blacked metal and stake their claim as one of the best in the business…” – PopMatters
