4.0 excellentManintheBox | November 22nd 14

On their latest release these New Orleans veterans finally knock an album out of the park pushed forward by their usual blackened deaththrash sound but spiced up a bit with some experimentation thrown in here and there. Now when I say "experimentation", I mean that one song displays melody while another flattens everything in its path with a crushing doom/death sound. I know that doesn't sound like much experimentation, but believe me for a band like Goatwhore, who prefer the ACDC route of progression, it is. Even the tracks where Goatwhore stick to their guns sound more inspired and memorable than usual. Just check out the opener which is on of Goatwhore's best songs released to date. Best tracks: Poisonous Existence in Reawakening, Cold Earth Consumed in Dying Flesh, Schadenfreude


4.0 excellentZygoat | July 14th 14

Fantastic, very thrashy. Riffs are crunchy as ever and track
progression is very enjoyable. Shifts from shrieks to grunts are
breathtaking, very dark album, one of their finest


4.5 superbSideShowBrian | July 14th 14

This is arguably their best work to date. Keeping their signature sound, it takes the hooks from "Carving...", expands on the diversity from "Blood for the Master" making (IMO) their most memorable album.


3.5 greatBRAman22 | July 12th 14

Constricting Rage of the Merciless is somewhat like a fusion of thrash and death metal that has a lot of groove, making it pretty easy to get into.
