Goatwhore are another one of those bread-n-butter type bands. Take some great riffs, furious vocals, then let them loose at top speed. When it's done wrong, it's boring as shit. When it's done right - like Blood For The Master, it's just pure, angry fun.

Goatwhore have finally seemed to find their niche. Furiously awesome...thrash?...Death n roll?...Black n roll? Who the hell knows. This is just simply awesome.

Best album of 2012 Ive heard so far...
The word gen means "illusion" or "apparition." In India, a man who uses conjury is called a genjutsushi ["a master of illusion technique"]. Everything in this world is but a marionette show. Thus we use the word gen.

This album has got some really good songs and is rather strong. From the first spin my opinion is a solid 8, but I doubt it'll go higher.
To their tombs the people are immured,
There is their gold, treasure and wealth,
The only condition is to ignore them,
Those who feed on corruption and weave death

Sounds like a slightly more melodic Haunting Curse... I like it.

I'm surprised by the fact that I enjoyed this so much.

Just as solid as the last album, though this time for me the stronger songs are in the second half of the album. And essentially, that's why I've given it the same rating, because it took me a while to actually get into this record, longer so than previous Goatwhore albums. Maybe it's the placement of tracks, I don't know. Anyway, very solid stuff here as always, the highlights for me being "Embodiment of This Bitter Chaos" and the excellent "An End to Nothing".

Great band. Very underrated. Probably their best LP.

Now this is something I've hadn't listened in a long time. Wonder if it's still good.
Crackhead Megadeth reigns supreme.
