Editorial Reviews

2012 album from the Death/Thrash Metal band. Over the course of nearly 15 years and an incalculable amount of tour miles, New Orleans' own Goatwhore have inadvertently established themselves as one the most diligent and consistently ferocious bands of the 21st century. Exhibiting a labyrinth of moods and meticulous tempo shifts, Blood For The Master is streamlined without ever rendering itself predictable. As memorable as it is menacing, the band's fifth full-length quite literally writhes under the weight of its own deviant heaviness. Led by the traditionally iconoclastic sermons of the leather-throated Falgoust, and made whole by its mammoth guitar tone, unconditional drum/bass battery and Duets intermittent snarls of wrath, the record again challenges God's legitimacy/authority while further exploring the ritual of death.

If Goatwhore's new album was a meal, it would be a bloody rare steak and baked potatoes. The sound of Blood for the Master falls somewhere between Carving out the Eyes of God, any Hellhammer album, and Dissection's classic Storm of Light's Bane. This is a straight ahead metal album that drives forward with psychotic precision and lays waste the template of modern death metal, by kicking it right between the eyes. The forcefullness of the tracks removes all the unnecessary garbage, (overdrumming, guitar acrobatics, vocal histrionics) and leaves only bare bones rocking. The four stars are only for the fact that some of the riffs seem a little forced, not exactly puzzle piece fitting, but for this style of music it seems to work. Goatwhore rip, others wish they could rock so hard with so little effort, but only Goatwhore balance skill and raw power so effectively.

Goatwhore employ most of their usual tools on their fifth record, 2012's "Blood For The Master." Reading in between the lines, it is a blackened death-thrash album tinged with grindcore, hardcore, and crust punk elements. Ben Falgoust is heard spewing his skin-crawling black metal vocals like venom over his band's impossibly tight musicianship. This involves ripping, blood-pumping guitar shredding and solid, grumbling bass lines. Plus, Zach Simmons is still one of the tightest, and most punishing drummers found in modern-day extreme metal. All of which combine to form a completely blown-out, forty-minute-long blast of chaotic bombast.

But there is more to this album than just destruction of the senses. For starters, Goatwhore tunefulness and musicality are a more integral part in the mix this time around. Meaning that yes, the band most certainly is first and foremost and extremely fast, evil, bludgeoning, and dissonant one; but there are some actual, honest-to-god melodies and grooves to be found, here. Next up, "Blood For The Master" disregards the group's usual trademark use of doom metal influence (and there are no doomy breakdowns anywhere in these ten songs). And finally, "Blood" continues where the last record left off in that it brings back Sammy Duet's exceptional guitar solos.

The album shoots out of the starting gate at lightning-fast speed, as "Collapse In Eternal Worth" layers gobs of excellent, buzzsaw-fast riffing on top of equally-as-blistering drumming (i.e. pummeling blast beats and racing thrash beats). Some memorable vocal patterns, including some Lamb Of God-worthy deathly vocals, also highlight this opener. "When Steel And Bone Meet" has plenty of crunchy, Morbid Angel-esque riffs, but its real highlight is its good, whammy-bar-pedal-drenched guitar solo.

I will keep this review short... but let me just say wow!!!! type in goatwhore collapse of eternal worth youtube...listen and watch. the album contains this breed of ferocity through out its length. so if you are into this song, then trust me and buy this album, it will not let you down. if you listen and watch this on you tube and are not into it, then don't buy it.... (but if you do buy it after not liking the video/audio... please don't bad review it, and say, compare it to some other band (esp, bands such as radio bands...metallica, disturbed, yadda, yadda, yadda.....because you are just playing the part of a fool).

I typically only feel compelled to review 5-star worthy albums. That being said, near the beginning of Goatwhore's existence as a band I saw them live and was not impressed. Subsequently because of that experience and their consistent "black metal" label I have ignored their releases; only recently gave their newest record Blood for the Master another chance. What a huge mistake ignoring them was. I'm now going through the back-catalog to see if all of their material is this fantastic. It's definitely genre-smashing, but if you want to label it I'd say thrash/death metal with elements of punk and black metal.

Agree with another reviewer that acknowledged this albums ability to be CONSTANTLY replayed with no other albums in-between. It's that good, consistent and cohesive.

I've listened to this album twice a day for the past two weeks traveling to work, and it ain't old at all. I like it more every day. The first few spins it was sort of a shock with the more crisp laid back production, and the slowed down pacing of the guitars and drums, but once you get used to it it's really refreshing. A lot of bands try this type of music, but it always comes off as boring, but this is not...at all. Ben's vocals are strong, and Sammy's riff's are very straight forward. Zach's drums are his signature battery, so you're in a good place with this album. I can't wait to hear these songs live. Addictive, man!!!

This album is basically a whole album of all my favorite types of songs from their last LP, Carving Out the Eyes of God. Which is a great thing in my opinion. The songs on this one are really thrashy but still that signature GoatWhore Southern American Black Metal sound. There has been a lot of great metal releases over the past few weeks, but I keep coming back to this album the most. So if you like the more thrash metal side of GoatWhore then you'll love this album as much as I do.
