GOATSNAKE: Long-Out-Of-Print 'Flower Of Disease' Album Reissued

Southern Lord Recordings has re-released the long out-of-print GOATSNAKE album "Flower Of Disease".

The third official release from the almighty GOATSNAKE, this slick, thunderous eight-song slab of doom was initially released in 2000 on the now-defunct Man's Ruin label, with Southern Lord handling the vinyl release. After lying dormant without an official pressing of the album in over eight years, the 'Lord now officially brings the album back to the masses on both CD and LP formats.

Recorded at Hollywood's Grand Master Studios, and engineered by Nick Raskulinecz (DANZIG, FOO FIGHTERS, PROBOT, ALICE IN CHAINS), "Flower Of Disease" showcased GOATSNAKE elevating their already professional songwriting to new levels, deeply stirring those already following the act's every move and vacuuming in new countless new fans. This is "the release" that would solidify the GOATSNAKE name as one of the top bands of the '90s stoner/doom movement.

The GOATSNAKE lineup on "Flower Of Disease" features members Greg Anderson (SUNN O))), THORR'S HAMMER, Southern Lord Recordings), Pete Stahl (SCREAM, WOOL, Desert Sessions), Greg Rogers (THE OBSESSED), and Stuart Dahlquist (BURNING WITCH, ASVA), as well as guest contributions from Petra Haden and Dave Catching (EAGLES OF DEATH METAL, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, MONDO GENERATOR).

GOATSNAKE recently floored a sold-out audience at their first show in over five years at 2010's Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland.
