“Death To The Architects Of Heaven”, the new video from New Orleans, Louisiana’s sons of American no-frills-black-metal-meets-death-‘n’-roll GOATWHORE, can be seen below. The video features the lyrics from the song, as well as live footage of the band on the Summer Slaughter Tour 2012.
GOATWHORE will return to the road this fall in support of HIGH ON FIRE. The trek will run from November 15 through December 22, with PRIMATE (featuring Kevin Sharp of BRUTAL TRUTH, Bill Kelliher of MASTODON, and more) on select dates in November, and CORROSION OF CONFORMITY on select dates in December.
GOATWHORE‘s song “Diabolical Submergence Of Rebirth”, from the “A Haunting Curse” album, will be heard in the upcoming season of HBO‘s “Treme”. The third season of the show will begin airing on September 23. The track will appear in episode #7, which is currently scheduled to air on November 4.
GOATWHORE‘s new album, “Blood For The Master”, sold around 3,100 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at No. 4 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200. The band’s previous albm, 2009’s “Carving Out The Eyes Of God”, opened with around 2,700 units to land at No. 16 on the Heatseekers chart.
“Blood For The Master” was released in North America on February 14 via Metal Blade Records. The CD was once again recorded at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida with producer with Erik Rutan.
“Blood For The Master” was made available on CD, vinyl, and digitally. Fans of vinyl should note that there are three different versions of the LP; red with black splatter, half red/half black, and standard black.
