Be it burning churches, occult symbol carved into arms, or actual photos of dead vocalists, the bands that fall under the umbrella of “extreme metal” almost always have pretty extreme imagery to go along with their music. Goatwhore isn’t any different. Fusing components of black metal with thrash and death metal, New Orleans-based Goatwhore has continued to tear through nearly two decades of blast beats, thrashing guitar riffs and vocals that range from low guttural growls to high pitched shrieking. While the quartet have definitely moved away from a blackened sound in recent years, Goatwhore will continue to be a name that is revered in the realms of extreme metal.
