Dragon Fire: Goatwhore, Cattle Decapitaion, Carnal Forge, plus more

Dragon Fire is Slow Dragon Music’s brief news round-up, filled with chunks of fleshy goodness. 

We’ve had a heavy amount of incoming at SDM over the last month, and, unfortunately, it’s just not possible to get all of it in all the time. However, be prepared for some mighty hits coming your way from all over the musical underground. From doom, to death, to straight up metal, there are some real beasts on the move! Here’s just a few of them…

Everybody’s favouritely monikered NOLA-ns, Goatwhore are re-issuing their 2006 platter, A Haunting Curse, this December 14th. The American vinyl release is up for pre-order from Metal Blade records US web store, but the three versions are very limited.


About to join them (Goatwhore) on the Metal Alliance tour, Boston’s Gozu have released a new video for their punchy grunge stomper, They Probably Know Karate. The video premiered on Metal Injection this week.


A lot closer to home, but still with members spread across Scotland, brutal gore-meisters, Aphotic, have also broken new cinematic ground. Taken from the Immurment EP, Foundations Of Iniquity is 4 1/3 minutes of pure guttural slime!


Also hammering out some great new Scottish metal, Dundee’s Catalysis have announced a launch show for their upcoming eponymous EP. Joining them for the December 14th show at Beat Generator Live are Black Blood, Bereavement, Threshold Sicks and one more to be announced.
