Blackened death thrash practitioners GOATWHORE are pleased to unleash “Death From Above,” the fiery new single off their long-awaited new full-length, Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven, set for release on October 7th via Metal Blade Records!
Marching into their twenty-fifth year as master architects of the most ruthless extreme metal, with Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven GOATWHORE spews forth forty-seven decimating minutes of the band’s trademark brew of death, black, thrash, and classic metal delivered with breathless intensity and an unapologetic bloodlust.
The title of the record – like all of the band’s releases – is both deep and direct. Notes vocalist Louis B. Falgoust II, “It’s a mixture of esoteric ideas and biblical scripts; 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.” Lyrically, Falgoust draws from a wide-ranging assortment of inspirations. Latest album teaser, “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.
Offers guitarist/vocalist Sammy Duet, “It’s an atomic blast of old school blackened death thrash for your asses. Beware the Night Witches…”
