The road demons in GOATWHORE will return to the streets this May on a short run of live dates supporting Satyricon. The MetalSucks-sponsored trek — set to commence on May 13th in Los Angeles, California and run through May 30th in Austin, Texas — follows GOATWHORE‘s recent month-long European live takeover with Sepultura where frontman Ben Falgoust performed in a cast after sustaining a broken leg and fractured foot just days into the journey.

Comments guitarist Sammy Duet of the upcoming dates, “We are fucking excited to be hitting the road for our first US dates of 2018 with Satyricon. This is our first time touring with these guys, and I guarantee you won’t want to miss these shows.”

GOATWHORE w/ Satyricon:

5/13/2018 Regent Theater – Los Angeles, CA

5/14/2018 Metro Opera House – Oakland, CA

5/15/2018 Bossanova Ballroom – Portland, OR

5/16/2018 El Corazon – Seattle, WA

5/18/2018 Marquis Theatre – Denver, CO

5/19/2018 The Truman – Kansas City, MO

5/20/2018 The Forge – Joliet, IL

5/21/2018 Al Rosa Villa – Columbus, OH

5/25/2018 Gramercy Theatre – New York, NY

5/28/2018 Gas Monkey Bar & Grill – Dallas, TX

5/29/2018 White Oak Music Hall – Houston, TX

5/30/2018 Come and Take it Live! – Austin, TX

GOATWHORE‘s latest full-length, Vengeful Ascension, was released last June via Metal Blade Records. Their seventh full-length offering and second recorded reel-to-reel was captured at Earth Analog in Tolono, Illinois with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome, Wolfhammer) and serves as the band’s highest charting album to date.

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.” Team Rock crowned Vengeful Ascension, “…the most mature recording in the GOATWHORE canon…,” 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 Metal Blade Records on CD, vinyl, and digital formats. To preview and purchase the record, visit metalblade.com/goatwhore.

“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.” — Alternative Press

THUNDERWAR – Reveal Title Track From Forthcoming Album “Wolfpack”

Old school worship! As soon as you get in touch with the songs of this Polish band, you will feel like you are reminded of legendary metal days. Come into life in Warsaw in 2012, THUNDERWAR are paying tribute to bands like DISSECTION, BATHORY, DEATH, OBITUARY and the 1980s NWOBHM. …and much more! After all, the quartet is not content to only emulate their role models. The Poles are also anxious to leave their own accents in the annals of metal. Thus one got to know and appreciate THUNDERWAR on the first EP “The Birth of Thunder” and the full-length debut “Black Storm”.

The five songs of the “Wolfpack” EP continue the chosen path. The Polish group works out even more clearly and compellingly which kind of metal it prefers. This metal is tradition-conscious, harsh and hymnal, and at the same time also complex and exciting. Great riffs, solos, hooklines and poses are part of THUNDERWAR‘s repertoire. The Old School Blackened Death Metal of the quartet has it all! Incidentally, the atmospheric and playful edge of THUNDERWAR‘s metal is surprising and inspiring. These guys know how to write and play metal hymns for eternity.

The “Wolfpack” EP was recorded in Monochrom Studio with producer Haldor (Satanic Audio). Drums were performed by Paweł ‘Pavulon’ Jaroszewicz (HATE), while James Stewart (VADER) filled in for the last live shows of THUNDERWAR. Over their time of existence, the group shared stages with legends such as CARCASS, MAYHEM, AMON AMARTH, ABBATH, DEATH (D.T.A.), OBITUARY, ASPHYX and SINISTER.

“Wolfpack” out May 25th on Lifeforce Records.

Released in September 2017, the time has arrive for the rest of the world to heed the warning and prepare for an old school crossover attack that combines Black Metal melodies, Doom/Sludge/Death Metal breakdowns, and in-your-face punk/thrash aggression with lyrical content inspired by horror films.

“Night of the Nuberus is our first major release. We went for a horror movie vibe in writing and recording the album, like a love letter to old slasher movies and horror punk bands. But my love for the New Orleans scene, black metal and the Melvins definitely bleeds through.”

“’Embrace The Rub’ is a Steven McDonald penned, punker tune throwback to his days as a young Hawthorne, CA punk hanging out with Black Flag,” explained Dale Crover. “For some reason, I decided that this tune really needed a piano part.”

The eight-song album is the band’s first to feature two bass tracks on every song, with the bass players being Steve McDonald (Redd Kross, OFF!) and Jeff Pinkus (Butthole Surfers). The Melvins previously shared the song “Stop Moving To Florida” from the forthcoming release:

Pinkus Abortion Technician pre-orders are available now (http://smarturl.it/MelvinsPinkus) with digital pre-orders including an instant download of both “Stop Moving To Florida” and “Embrace The Rub.”
