Goatwhore Announces European Headlining Dates

Hey my Metalized Fiends, I just wanted to take a moment out of the usual proceedings to share the news about the European Headlining run by the mighty Goatwhore. I caught them a couple of weeks ago when they were supporting the Final US Tour by Satyricon and “Wow” were they on point. Sure we don’t usually showcase the gigs on the other side of the pond but when you need to recommend to your readers a capable and worthy band you break the standards. Here is the full press release from their people along with the gamut of dates.

GOATWHORE’s latest full-length, Vengeful Ascension, was released last June via Metal Blade Records. Their seventh full-length – captured at Earth Analog with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome, Wolfhammer) – serves as the band’s highest charting album to date and continues to reap the praise of fans and critics alike.

Wrote Alternative Press, “The album roars with the classic GOATWHORE sound of searing, shredding, and screams of rage. The material also tries some new things, tossing in a bit of blackened atmosphere, adding to the philosophical questions the music dives into.” Blabbermouth hailed, “Vengeful Ascension proves that the band is firing on all cylinders, standing tall as one of extreme metal’s leading bands.” MetalSucks named Vengeful Ascension the band’s, “most vital album since 2006’s A Haunting Curse,” and one, “guaranteed to frighten your grandmother directly into her grave,” while Loudwire added, “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.”

Vengeful Ascension is out now on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. To preview and purchase the record, visit metalblade.com/goatwhore.

I’ve said this to numerous people in my Circle of Metal Peeps and I’ll repeat it for you readers now about Goatwhore being one of the most satisfying live Metal bands currently hitting the stages of the world. They give their all on the whole and its money well spent. You’ll even likely get to meet them at their merchandise booth after sets because they love to talk to and enjoy a beverage with their fans. Trust me on this. Okay, so who is reading our site in the faraway lands and has been convinced by the pitch? Anyone? Bueller?
