Goatwhore, with their distinctively “blackened” brand of death metal, are, simply put, one of the best and most consistent acts in the last couple of decades of American metal.  While they hail from the same swamps as their sludged-out brethren in Down, Crowbar, and Eyehategod, Goatwhore was the one band in the Nola elite to draw predominately from more extreme sub-genres (most notably the Norweigan black).  Their 2014 release of Constricting Rage of the Merciless proved that now 6 full-lengths deep, they are adept as ever as crafting pure brutality, ever choosing the raw over the refined.

Well they’ve just announced a 6-week long series of dates across this vast continent, with support from Ringworm, Black Breath, and Theories.  If you’re a Brooklynite like myself, you’ll have no excuse to miss them on 7/6 at Saint Vitus Bar; otherwise see below for the official tour poster and full list of dates.
