New Orleans, United States (1996 – present)

Goatwhore is a blackened death metal band from the swamps of New Orleans, LA. They were formed by well known musicians from the Louisiana metal scene. They first came together in 1996/97 when Sammy Duet (former Acid Bath/Crowbar guitarist) and Zak Nolan (former drummer of Goatwhore, now replaced by Zack Simmons) jammed together as a little sideproject when Acid Bath was taking a break. They soon made some four track demos. When Acid Bath fell apart in 1997 (due to the loss of bassist Audie Pitre) they dedicated more time to Goatwhore (formerly known as Kilgore). They quickly turned into a 4 piece with the addition of Ben Falgoust and Pat Bruders. In 2004 Goatwhore was offered a deal by Metal Blade Records, who they are signed with now…

“We are timeless … within damnation”

With its 2000 debut, The Eclipse of the Ages Into Black, Louisiana miscreants Goatwhore explored old school satanic black metal as no American act had before. The band’s flame-throwing ferocity and blasphemous conviction hailed such pioneers as Bathory and Venom and offered respite to purists grown weary of the fanciful, over-orchestrated musings of Europe’s contemporary black metallurgists.

Goatwhore’s new second effort, Funeral Dirge for the Rotting Sun, ventures into darker, less conventional territory. Probing the pitch-black recesses of mind and soul in a disturbing, introspective examination of dark forces at work, and unleashing it all with a feral hookiness and atmospheric flare, the band steps beyond the bounds of mere black metal into a realm all its own.

    These guys should do well tonight. I haven't seen them since SOTU in 07, but their music hasn't changed that much

    I don't hear much, if any, death metal in this bands sound. [2] Blackened thrash attack would be more like it.

    I'm surprised black/thrash isn't in the top tags. @ToxicGriever, you don't think there's any black metal in their sound? Have you even listened to The Eclipse of Ages into Black? or Funeral Dirge for the Rotting Sun?

    Goatwhore is probably one of the best metal band names ever invented.
