We’ve known that Goatwhore have been coming out with an album for a while now. And with the Metal Alliance tour kicking off next week, the band have unveiled some information about their sixth album. The new album, out on July 8th, will be called Constricting Rage of the Merciless. If you head out to the tour, you’ll get a chance to pre-order the album and get an exclusive album laminate and t-shirt. The band recorded the album once again with Erik Rutan. It’s going to sound particularly analog, as the drums, bass and rhythm guitars were tracked to 2-inch tape. Here’s what Rutan had to say about the album.
Working with Goatwhore again for our 4th album together was amazing! It is through our experience and established trust and bond in the studio that allowed us to push each other to the limits, only to achieve the best performances and tones we could. This album came out so dynamic and huge, partly due to the fact that we recorded drums, bass, and main rhythm guitars to analog tape. Goatwhore has a massive sound and we all felt recording to analog would be the best way to capture it, giving it a very unique quality and feel, built off of integrity and vibe. This is our finest moment working together and the guys did an incredible job creating and performing all the songs on this record. Goatwhore fans be prepared!
Here’s the track listing:
1. Poisonous Existence In Reawakening
2. Unraveling Paradise
3. Baring Teeth For Revolt
