New Orleans, LA's sons of American no-frills black metal, Goatwhore, have just announced that the title of their fourth full-length album, and second for Metal Blade, will be "Carving Out The Eyes Of God". For the follow up to 2006's "A Haunting Curse", Goatwhore headed back to St. Petersburg, FL to record with producer Erik Rutan at Manna Studios with mastering being handled by Alan Douches of West West Side.
Vocalist Ben Falgoust comments on the direction of the new album; "I don't really know how to explain this. I don't want to come off with the typical speech about how this record is our best yet and all of that. I will say that I am quite pleased how it has turned out and all parts relating to it. I feel every member put a great deal of effort into their part of the project. I even feel Erik Rutan busted his ass even more this time to make us feel that we didn't take any steps backwards in the recording and production of this release… I don't even really care what the critics say. I think the end result is basically coming up with something you have put a lot of work into and the satisfaction achieved in completing it. I will say that the new material is ripping metal and we still have that 'Goatwhore' sound, whatever that may mean for each individual that enjoys or hates what we do. Just look at it as another step in the evolution of this band. Each person that hears it will have his or her own perception of it. Like it or not, we don't have a say in it. The only thing we can do is just keep writing the way we do and accept the criticism. Doesn't mean we are gonna listen to the criticism and change. Just give it an honest listen and if you dig it, awesome! If you don't, then pass it on to a friend or use it as a new drink coaster."
Goatwhore, the New Orleans-based band featuring vocalist L. Ben Falgoust II (Soilent Green) and guitarist Sammy Duet (Acid Bath, Crowbar), is currently writing material for their follow up to "A Haunting Curse".
According to Duet, "We are well into it. I won't go in the whole, 'This one is gonna be the heaviest one yet, blah blah blah,' but it's gonna be pretty damn heavy. I am really happy with what we have written so far."
He continues, "If all goes to plan, we will enter Mana Studios in early February. Hopefully we will do some shows before then. Other than that, I'm just sitting on my ass being bored. I miss being on tour, but I guess you have to take what you can get."
