Blackened death thrash practitioners GOATWHORE released their long-awaited new full-length, Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven, last Friday via Metal Blade Records. In celebration of its release, today the band is pleased to unveil their new video for the record’s title track.
Trooping into their twenty-fifth year as conjurors 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.
With the band’s multifaceted title track, vocalist Louis B. Falgoust II ventured into an idea of emotional despondency within older texts and writings, feeling like several of these writings missed an element of human nature/emotion. “The basic laws and rules guided by simple aspects of good and evil and the emotional/mental journey in which people would have to traverse them. Life is simple, but very complex when coming to the relationships of numerous people together and their paths crossing. The idea was spawned from delving into my own idea behind the relationship of Judas and Jesus, reading various writings on the topic, from the basic ones we all have heard to the forbidden concepts like the Gospels Of Judas. It’s also about the idea of doing something you may think is positive or beneficial, but it only ends up putting you in a more negative foundation, and this abstraction can send a person into a very dark place. Life around you begins to crumble and the thoughts become more askew. The title is more of a metaphor embracing this idea.”
