Does Goatwhore need an introduction? Formed by members of Soilent Green and Acid Bath, they were an exponent of USBM before those letters really meant anything. The band soon became one of the biggest to emerge from the American black metal scene - even as their sound grew to encompass thrash, sludge, and hardcore punk.

I spoke with Goatwhore guitarist/co-founder Sammy Duet about how the band's NOLA origins shaped their sound, and the reactions their music elicited from European black metal fans. We also spoke about why their latest album Angels Hung from the Arches of Heaven is their ugliest, and Kurt Ballou's suggestions on improving their arrangements.

My thanks again to Sammy for speaking with me, and to you for listening.
