New Orleans metal act Goatwhore made a merciless stop in Brooklyn, N.Y., for their “Poisoning North America” tour at Saint Vitus.

The start of Goatwhore’s set was a tad rocky as it kicked off a bit late, and after the first song the microphone cable was “f----d” in the words of frontman Ben Falgoust. Regardless things got very sweaty very fast and the band unleashed and played hard-hitting tracks “Poisonous Existence in Reawakening” and “Alchemy of the Black Sun Cult.”  Each member of Goatwhore is unrelenting as they put everything they have into their live performance.

Falgoust belts out lyrics with force as he feasts his eyes on each member of the crowd. In an intimate venue like Saint Vitus with no security at the stage and no barricade, Goatwhore are in their natural element. Fans moshed and swarmed to the front especially during “FBS” (appropriately dedicated to the ladies), “An End to Nothing” and “Apocalyptic Havoc.”

Goatwhore will continue to rip North America apart as they are set to play this year’s Gwar B-Q and Knotfest later this year!

Black Breath took the stage beforehand delivered a forceful set as they cranked out “Feast of the Damned,” “Escape From Death” and “Black Sin (Spit on the Cross).” The band also unveiled that their new album will be released in October of this year.

Veteran metal act Ringworm took the stage earlier in the night and got the pits started and the blood pumping. With their performance of “No One Dies Alone,” “Dollar Whore,” “Justice Replaced by Revenge” and their cover of Motorhead’s “Iron Fist,” Ringworm made the night of metal one to remember.

Seattle band Theories had an energetic performance of their own to start the night off. Check out our gallery above of all the bands who performed in Brooklyn at Saint Vitus.
