Goatwhore’s New Album “Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven” Due In October, “Born Of Satan’s Flesh” Music Video Launched


Blackened death metal outfit Goatwhore will have their eighth studio album “Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven” out on October 07th via Metal Blade Records. The bulk of the recording sessions for the effort took place under producer Jarrett Pritchard (Exhumed, 1349) at Studio In The Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana, while Converge‘s Kurt Ballou was brought on to handle the mixing duties. Ted Jensen (Ghost, Gojira) mastered the release.

Vocalist Louis Ben Falgoust II had the following to say about the album overall:

“I would describe this record as being very raw, but clarity is shaped within the chaos. It’s a journey of everything we’ve done and some new approaches as we advance forward. When we write, we mainly focus on the music and what we enjoy about playing it. We don’t write just to appease others. We want to enjoy playing it in a live setting as well, especially night after night on the road.”

An official press release also shed some light on some of the lyrical themes featured on the record:

‘Lyrically, Falgoust draws from a wide array of influences. ‘Death From Above‘ is loosely based on the ‘Nachthexen,’ or Night Witches, a group of female Soviet aviators in a bomber division deployed in 1942, a period during which women were in fact barred from combat.

Then there’s the multifaceted title track, on which Falgoust ventured into an idea of emotional despondency within older texts and writings, feeling like several of these writings missed an element of human nature/emotion.

The title of the record – like all of the band’s releases – is both deep and direct. ‘It’s a basis of human despondency, the arc of life, and its relationship with the personal abyss of overwhelming emotion and thought,’ elaborates Falgoust. ‘It’s a mixture of esoteric ideas and biblical scripts and the journey to the places some people care not to venture on mental paths… The rise and fall of the self and how the abyss can be a turning point for some and a passageway to oblivion for others. It’s blunt and to the point, just like countless aspects of life.”

Your first proper taste of the album arrives in the form of the below music video for the first single, “Born Of Satan’s Flesh“, which was directed by David Brodsky“. Guitarist/vocalist Sammy Duet stated of it, “Prepare yourself for an unabashed violent onslaught of Satanic unsoundness of mind! All hail his Luciferian force and might!”

Falgoust added:

“Welcome to the manifested curse of our latest offering. During the past five years since our ‘Vengeful Ascension‘ release, entwined with a state of isolation within that period, we have been communing with our inner abyss for inspiration. Idle time is truly the Devil’s workshop. Feast your eyes (and ears) on this latest display of chaos, which is but a fragment of our impending full-length release out in October!”
