GOATWHORE unveils ‘Chaos Arcane’ lyric video
‘Vengeful Ascension’ release day draws near!
‘Vengeful Ascension‘ is the imminent new full-length from New Orleans’ metal legionGOATWHORE. Set to drop on June 23rd via Metal Blade Records worldwide, the band’s seventh full-length and second recorded reel-to-reel was captured at Earth Analog in Tolono, Illinois with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome).
In advance of its release, today the band shares the official lyric video for ‘Chaos Arcane’. Based on H.P. Lovecraft’s character who attempts to recount the inexplicable sense of fear in expectancy of an unknown evil, the track conveys that sensation of impending doom through sound in a way onlyGOATWHORE can.

Mixed by Chris Common (Tribulation, Pelican) and mastered by Maor Applebaum (Faith No More,Halford, Today Is The Day), the ten-track ‘Vengeful Ascension‘ is a sonic manifestation of war, chaos, desolation, and emotional conflict, seamlessly bridging twenty years of the band’s signature brand of audio venom. While hardly a concept record in the traditional sense, ‘Vengeful Ascension‘ loosely revolves itself around Luciferian notions in title and spirit where the symbol of Lucifer serves not as a fiendish, all-destroying demon but rather an emancipator or guiding light. It’s a theme of struggle and transcendence derived from John Milton’s Paradise Lost epic and one that has appeared, whether directly or indirectly, within GOATWHORE works of the past.
