    As always, the uninitiated need not apply. For the rest of us, Goatwhore are a filthy feast. [12 Jul 2014, p.53]

    Their sixth full-length offering, Constricting Rage of the Merciless, is yet another step forward for the already venerable group.

    They are ruthlessly efficient, unmerciful, redundant, triumphant, and wholly invested in darkness, volume, destruction, and little else.

    Goatwhore channels every evil impulse of its blackened death thrash into Constricting Rage of the Merciless, sixth LP of ill intent.

    Ultimately, Constricting Rage will either prove redundant or ravishing.

    This is not music meant to be enjoyed as individual songs, but rather as part of a larger, more visceral listening experience that, despite its often redundant quality (individual track differentiation is damn near impossible) and oppressive nature, proves highly enjoyable, if ultimately exhausting clocking in at just under 40 minutes.
