Streaming: Goatwhore Premiere from Blood For the Master

Talk about a kick-ass way to start the week. Not only did we put the Big Easy's finest purveyors of blackened thrash, Goatwhore, on the cover of our current issue, we managed to wrangle a new tune off their upcoming Metal Blade album, Blood For the Master. "When Steel and Bone Meet" is everything we love about Goatwhore. It sounds like classic Motorhead revved up with a hefty dose of demonic thrash. There are riffs a-plenty, petrol-belching vocals and lots of lyrical gore. See for yourself.

Goatwhore: "When Steel and Bone Meet" by Decibel Magazine

Recorded by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal) in St. Petersburg, FL, at Mana Studios, the band’s fifth full-length release will be issued by Metal Blade in North America on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14. There's no better way to show your loved one how much you care and cherish them than giving them the gift of brutal, Satanic filth and hatred. Seriously, they'll feel the infection affection flowin.'

Blood for the Master will be available on CD, vinyl, and digitally. There will even be three different versions of the LP; red with black splatter, half red/half black, and standard black. Now that you've heard the tune, you'll want to go here to secure the goods.
