Goatwhore Announces European Headlining Dates

Hey my Metalized Fiends, I just wanted to take a moment out of the usual proceedings to share the news about the European Headlining run by the mighty Goatwhore. I caught them a couple of weeks ago when they were supporting the Final US Tour by Satyricon and “Wow” were they on point. Sure we don’t usually showcase the gigs on the other side of the pond but when you need to recommend to your readers a capable and worthy band you break the standards. Here is the full press release from their people along with the gamut of dates.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I have to admit that outside of BTBAM, BOA and VOM there are not many bands that I am chomping at the bit to see during this year’s go round. I guess some of the super Extreme stuff has worn me down and let’s remember that this event is a super long one. What do you readers think about this one? Does it raise the blood pressure inside your Metal core and find you scribbling the dates down in whatever you do that on nowadays? Let me know in the comments down below. I will return with more soon for sure.
