Goatwhore is an American blackened death metal band,[1] formed in 1997 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

"I think sometimes we get slighted for stuff" Falgoust continues on where the band now fits within metal's ever expanding pantheon of subgenres. "Whatever terms people decide to lock us into— black metal, death metal, black death metal, everyone's gotta have some kind of little blanket. It's almost like a social standing. To me, it's all just straight heavy metal."[2]

Biography[edit]

Goatwhore was formed by singer/guitarist Sammy Duet following the breakup of his previous band, Acid Bath. Soilent Green singer L. Ben Falgoust II, guitarist Ben Stout, bassist Patrick Bruders, and drummer Zak Nolan completed the lineup, which debuted with the demo Serenades to the Tides of Blood; Goatwhore's proper debut LP, The Eclipse of Ages into Black, followed in early 2000. Funeral Dirge for the Rotting Sun appeared in 2003 before the band jumped to Metal Blade for the fall release of 2006's A Haunting Curse.[3] They performed at both Ozzfest 2008 and Ozzfest 2010.[4]

In 2009, Goatwhore released their fourth album, entitled Carving out the Eyes of God, and toured with Obituary, among others.

In January and February 2010, Goatwhore embarked on the 'Bound By The Road' Tour with DevilDriver, Suffocation, and Thy Will Be Done.

In 2010, the band was confirmed as being part of the soundtrack for Namco Bandai Games' 2010 remake of Splatterhouse.

In early 2012, the band released their fifth album, entitled Blood for the Master.

On March 10, 2014, the band completed recording their sixth album, which is set for release later in the year.[5]
