So far, Louisiana Black / Death Metal act United States Goatwhore have put out two songs from their upcoming album, "Angels Hung from the Arches of Heaven", which is scheduled for release on the 7th of October via long-time partners Metal Blade Records. The most recent of the two, "Death from Above", went live yesterday. Check it out:

 


Back in July, the first taste of "Angels Hung from the Arches of Heaven" was a music video made for the album's opening track, "Born of Satan's Flesh":

 


Metal Blade Records had this to say regarding the album's contents:

Unquestionably their strongest, most accomplished album to date in sound, concept, and execution, "Angels Hung from the Arches of Heaven" emits forty-seven desolating minutes of the band’s trademark fusion of death, black, thrash, and classic metal. Delivered with breathless intensity and an unapologetic bloodlust, the twelve-track offering stands among the most thrilling records to come out of 2022.

"I would describe this record as being very raw, but clarity is shaped within the chaos," reflects vocalist Louis Ben Falgoust II. "It’s a journey of everything we’ve done and some new approaches as we advance forward. When we write, we mainly focus on the music and what we enjoy about playing it. We don’t write just to appease others. We want to enjoy playing it in a live setting as well, especially night after night on the road."


And looking back on Goatwhore's career as a whole:

Reaching a quarter century anniversary is a good time to pause and reflect on what has been achieved, and Falgoust is philosophical. "It has been a rough road, but looking back and reminiscing on the things we were able to do musically and touring wise, it has been very much worth it. You get so caught up in the touring and releasing albums cycle that every now and then you have to step off the momentum and just see what has been done. When you do get that opportunity, then the entire vision opens up and you really get to see the scope of accomplishments, and that is when every little piece comes together and the realization of the things you have done hits you."


"Angels Hung from the Arches of Heaven" marks Goatwhore's first album in over five years, and their eighth full-length overall in a career spanning three decades. The tracklist is as follows:

  1. Invocation 3
  2. Born of Satan's Flesh
  3. The Bestowal of Abomination
  4. Angels Hung from the Arches of Heaven
  5. Death from Above
  6. Ruinous Liturgy
  7. Victory is the Lightning of Destruction
  8. Voracious Blood Fixation
  9. The Devil's Warlords
  10. Weight of a Soulless Heart
  11. Nihil
  12. And I Was Delivered from the Wound of Perdition


The cover art for the album was designed by U.S. vocalist and artist Jordan Barlow, who's artwork you may already be familiar with from releases by the likes of Germany The Ruins of Beverast and Norway 1349:
