Former PANTERA vocalist Philip H.

He has now visited the online comment section for the live video from that performance and added this comment under Housecore Records account:

GOATWHORE have unleashed the first taste of their forthcoming new full-length, Constricting Rage Of The Merciless, with the seventh track, “FBS.”

Captured at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida with audio magus, Erik Rutan at the helm, the deafening serenades of Constricting Rage Of The Merciless serves as the band’s first studio effort 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, 37-minute offering marks GOATWHORE’s most well-executed, sonically devastating manifestation to date, its warm, organic production harnessing the thick, monolithic, recklessly war-ready tone and energy of their live performance in a way previous recordings have not.

We knew Adam would do a fantastic job, and also remain patient while we threw more and more challenging ideas at him. Fair play, we couldn’t be happier with how it came out...
