GOATWHORE announce Bloodstock 2016 appearance

New Orleans’ favourite road demons, GOATWHORE have announced they will appear at Bloodstock 2016 along with Stuck Mojo, Metal Allegiance and loads more still to be announced.

 

Ben Falgoust comments:

 

“In August we will be making our first appearance at Bloodstock Open Air. After many years of diligent work and relentless touring we have been presented with this fine experience. We are quite ready to give our fans and newcomers a performance well deserved of BOA. See you all then!”

BLOODSTOCK will be held at Catton Park, Derbyshire on 11th-14th August 2016.

And if you want to see more Festival action from GOATWHORE then Ben is asking you:

 

“We have some more Festival announcements coming in the next month, so keep your eyes open for more details. If any of our European fans would like to see us at other festivals please step forward and demand our presence directly to the Festival that you would like to see us perform at”.

 

GOATWHORE released their unanimously-adored Constricting Rage Of The Merciless full-length, last July via Metal Blade. Upon its first week of release, the record debuted at #81 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart, toppling their last entry position of #171 with Blood For The Master. Additionally, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless hit the #21 spot on Billboard’s Rock chart, #7 on the Hard Rock chart, #13 on the Independent chart and, boasting ten mutinous tracks of thick, predatory, subterranean metal, continues to reap the exaltation of fans and critics globally.

 

In related GOATWHORE missives, this past Summer, the band invited show-goers to post their live footage of fan-favorite track, “FBS.” GOATWHORE devotees from around the globe submitted footage they’d caught on various tours for a special compiled video clip which is finally ready for public viewing.

“GOATWHORE channels every evil impulse of its blackened death thrash into Constricting Rage Of The Merciless…” – Austin Chronicle

 

“Constricting Rage Of The Merciless definitely stakes a claim as the new high water mark of the group’s work thus far… the closest GOATWHORE have come to bottling the blistering energy of their live show…” – Metal Injection

 

“They’ve always been lethal live, but with each successive album, GOATWHORE proves to rank amongst the best of the best of their ilk.” – Blabbermouth

 

“GOATWHORE commanded the whole room from the second they took the stage, and attending a show… should be a no-brainer for any and every metalhead in North America.” – Metal Assault

 

“…the intensity is unparalleled.” – Pittsburgh Music Magazine

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
