With the release of their hugely anticipated new full-length, “Constricting Rage Of The Merciless“, now less than one month away, New Orleans devious metal merchants, GOATWHORE, unleash all out Hell with “Schadenfreude” currently corrupting the airwaves of mega music portal, Loudwire.
Literally meaning the pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others, ninth cut, “Schadenfreude,” is at once predatory, epic, misanthropic and sadistic. Notes vocalist Ben Falgoust of the debaucherous hymn: “This song represents the downward spiral of man at his most vile. The seething element of satisfaction when others around fail and fall, then the gratitude that this sickly rejoicing has accomplished in the overall end.”
Adds Loudwire: “‘Schadenfreude’ is a classic take-no-prisoners, leave-no-survivors type of GOATWHORE track. The band’s black metal influence is at the forefront of ‘Schadenfreude,’ as guitarist Sammy Duet builds a dark atmosphere with his open chords and sinister progressions, while vocalist Ben Falgoust explores his full guttural range throughout the track.”
Feel the wrath of “Schadenfreude,” now playing at Loudwire at THIS LOCATION.

On “Constricting Rage Of The Merciless“, GOATWHORE spews their unadulterated, subterranean metal as channeled through the historic likes of Motörhead and Bathory, with the insatiable hunger of a pack of wild boars. Captured at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida with sound savior, Erik Rutan at the control desk, the record serves as their first studio output to be tracked to two-inch tape. A more challenging approach that demands performance over pro-tooled perfection and leaving little room for error, the ten-track, thirty-seven-minute recording is GOATWHORE‘s most accomplished, sonically consuming manifestation to date, its warm, organic production harnessing the dense, apocalyptic war-ready tone and energy of their live performance in a way previous releases have not.
“Constricting Rage Of The Merciless” will make its final descent upon Europe on July 4th, 2014 via Metal Blade Records.
