Blood for the Master

Metal Blade [2012]

These guys are almost half a dozen albums deep into their catalog and with this latest release, Blood for the Master, Goatwhore seem to be staying on a good, dark path. The album itself is violently spattered with sacrilegious imagery and lyrics - something not so surprising but rather comforting if you set your expectations to just that. There are Goatwhore brand riffs aplenty, with the occasional throwback to earlier back metal Goatwhore moments and even some tracks that could catch the attention of classic metal heads and thrashers alike. Whether you plan to make sacrifices to Satan or to your bank account (expect to pay around twenty bucks for this one), you will more than likely get down with at least something found within these ten blood-soaked tracks.
