Goatwhore was formed by singer/guitarist Sammy Duet following the breakup of his previous band, Acid Bath. Soilent Green singer L. Ben Falgoust II, guitarist Ben Stout, bassist Patrick Bruders, and drummer Zak Nolan completed the lineup, which debuted with the demo Serenades to the Tides of Blood; Goatwhore's official debut LP, The Eclipse of Ages into Black, followed in early 2000. Funeral Dirge for the Rotting Sun appeared in 2003 before the band jumped to Metal Blade for the fall release of 2006's A Haunting Curse.
They performed at both Ozzfest 2008 and Ozzfest 2010.
In early 2012, the band released their fifth album, entitled Blood for the Master.
Goatwhore's themes change constantly, with Satanism, Witchcraft, Anti-Christianity, and the Occult being prevalent in every album. Goatwhore has recently started talking about Armageddon and the holocaust in their last two albums.
