GOATWHORE released their critically adored Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven full-length last October via Metal Blade Records. Their most accomplished album to date in sound, concept, and execution, the twelve-track offering earned the #9 position on Billboard’s Current Hard Music Albums chart upon its first week of release and stands among the most ravaging records to come out of 2022.
Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven was produced by Jarrett Pritchard (Exhumed, 1349), and tracked primarily at Studio In The Country in Bogalusa, Louisiana under pandemic restrictions. The band recruited acclaimed producer Kurt Ballou (Converge, High On Fire, Gatecreeper, Code Orange) to mix the record with final mastering duties handled by Grammy-award winning engineer Ted Jensen (Ghost, Gojira, Cult Of Luna). The record is tied together by the art of longtime collaborator Jordan Barlow.
Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven is available on CD, digitally, and LP on multiple color variants. Preview and purchase yours today at: metalblade.com/goatwhore.

“Angels… consistently rages without ever devolving into the samey sounding banality that plagues so many less adept practitioners. Angels… just gets better the longer it plays.” – Decibel Magazine
“If you love war metal, this pick will be right up your alley. It assaults you with blitzkrieg strength. This evil offering is pleasantly raw. Yet, it is also a polished and mature work. GOATWHORE will catch you off guard with soaring guitar solos and the like.” – MetalSucks
“Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven cherry-picks the best bits from various subgenres — the guttural intensity of death metal, the trilling majesty of black metal — and assembles them into songs that feel almost regal in their hateful conviction.” – Spin Magazine’s 10 Best Metal Albums Of 2022
“…blistering tracks toward the album’s back-end like ‘Voracious Blood Fixation’ and ‘The Devil’s Warlords’…showcase some of GOATWHORE’s best, off-kilter, savage riffs ever. It truly is all killer with no filler… Whatever the future may hold for GOATWHORE, Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven proves that the band is at the top of its game, and that it has much more to offer.” – Blabbermouth
“The blackened thrash remains up front, as Falgoust’s growls and Duet’s riffs and sinister solos coalesce with the determined rhythms of Simmons and Coleman. GOATWHORE ascends to eviscerate all expectations. Angels Hung from the Arches of Heaven exceeds the related genre’s boundaries and redefine their sound and place in the landscape of metal.” – New Noise Magazine
“…another devilishly brutal offering from GOATWHORE and sees the band on relentlessly savage and reenergized form with their brand of no-nonsense metal going for the jugular at every chance it gets.” – Distorted Sound
Louis B. Falgoust II – vocals
