Dragon Fire:Goatwhore – New Album Coming 


Dragon Fire is Slow Dragon Music’s irregular news roundup, filled with flaming chunks of fleshy goodness!

NOLA extreme metal band, Goatwhore are marching up on 1/4 of a century, and fresh full-length to boot.

Made up from parts of Acid Bath & Soilent Green, they are well known for their filthy, brutal attack. Judging by the video for Born Of Satan’a Flesh, new LP, Angels Hung From The Arches Of Heaven, looks to continue in that vein. This platter is due out October 07th on Metal Blade, but pre-orders are already available at: 




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.

Vocalist Louis Ben Falgoust II states:

“I would describe this record as being very raw, but clarity is shaped within the chaos. 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.”

Lyrically, Falgoust draws from a wide array of influences. “Death From Above” is loosely based on the “Nachthexen,” or Night Witches, a group of female Soviet aviators in a bomber division deployed in 1942, a period during which women were in fact barred from combat. Then there‘s the multifaceted title track, on which Falgoust ventured into an idea of emotional despondency within older texts and writings, feeling like several of these writings missed an element of human nature/emotion. The title of the record – like all of the band‘s releases – is both deep and direct. 

It‘s a basis of human despondency, the arc of life, and its relationship with the personal abyss of overwhelming emotion and thought,” elaborates Falgoust. “It‘s mixture of esoteric ideas and biblical scripts and the journey to the places some people care not to venture on mental paths… The rise and fall of the self and how the abyss can be a turning point for some and a passageway to oblivion for others. It‘s blunt and to the point, just like countless aspects of life. “

The band also invested greater meaning in the visual components of the album through the use of sigils created by longtime collaborator Jordan Barlow.

We give him an idea and then he just goes with it,” says Falgoust. “We used sigils in the past with our name and other small details, but wanted to make this album more rooted in it. It adds a deeper aspect to our visual presentation. It creates interest and with that inspires questions. We want the listener to delve into this musical journey with us both by sound and vision.
