The wait is finally over! Goatwhore have announced their new album, Angels Hung From the Arches of Heaven, is scheduled to arrive on October 7th via Metal Blade Records. To celebrate their long-awaited full-length effort, the group has unleashed a video for their new single, “Born Of Satan’s Flesh.” The follow-up to 2017’s Vengeful Ascension was produced by Jarrett Pitchard (Exhumed, 1349), tracking was primarily done at Studio In Country in Bogalusa. Additionally, the group also recruited producer Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire etc.) to mix the record while the final mastering was handled by engineer Ted Jensen (Ghost, Gojira, Cult of Luna). 

 

Vocalist Louis Ben Falgoust II comments:

 

“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.”

 

Falgoust further explains: 

“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 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.”

 

On working with Pritchard Falgoust states:

“He has a good vision of what we are doing and trying to present. He tests you and forces the best performances out of you. Not in a bad way, just that he knows what each person could do prior to us entering the studio, so he has a level of expectation to push each one of us to our own individual performance levels.”

 

Falgoust concludes:

“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!”

 

On Ballou, guitarist Sammy Duet comments:

“Kurt actually brought a lot to the table. He had some opinions on a few of the song structures, which was a first for us because we never had an outside ear giving ideas. The sound of the record speaks for itself.”
